You know that thread about Babcock must be looking here to make the Lebda decision? You think maybe he noticed the talk about Maltby being useless and should be dumped and maybe told Malts this? haha, wow, I was biting my fingernails way down listening to the game on teh radio, since I get no hockey on TV, and man, Maltby redeeming himself for a lackluster regular season. The grinders always seem to step it up in the playoffs. From what I have been hearing, Cleary has been playing extremely well also. You think the new grind line might end up being Cleary, Franzen and Bootland? Bootland can be the MacCarty type, and Franzen/Cleary will bet he defensive specialists/PK guys ala Malts and Drapes. Plus, I keep hearing about Franzen's awesome hit. We'll see if Bootland can stick next season, but we'll look at that when the time will come.

WINGS WON GAME ONE BABY!! This should be a great series, can't wait until I get to see the Sunday game, NBC, right?

Franzen, Maltby and Cleary were excellent tonite. It took the half of the third and into overtime for Detroit to realize they had to DUMP THE PUCK IN and forecheck. The Oilers will trap for the rest of this series, and Babcock will adjust. If Detroit gets Datsyuk back for game 2, that will be huge.

Franzen wasnt just good for a rookie tonite, he was outstanding period. A big man that can skate and is a horse defensively. If you were able to watch the game you would have been extremely impressed.

Yep, it worked for Anaheim and Calgary but now we finally have a coach with a gameplan.

Samuelsson had a pretty bad game. Looked like a Hull clone from the '04 playoffs, taking terrible shots from the outside and he whiffed on a couple good chances. O well, hopefully it was just nerves and he'll rebound.

Can't wait to get Datsyuk back!

Our 4th line beat their 4th line maybe? With Dats out, we did not get quite the punch we need from our first line and the Oil could concentrate their D on Z's and Y's lines. Awesome way Franzen, Cleary and Malts came through.

Johan had a couple of monster hits in the OT...there is a reason I liked this kid from the first time I saw him at camp. He's playing a lot more maturely than an NHL rookie might.

Way to go Malts!

Now for a nice cold beer to celebrate!

They definitely showed up to play, as did the Lang-Williams-Yzerman line. The Swedish line was pretty quiet, though, and the Shanahan-Draper-Mowers line was MIA. If Datsyuk isn't back, I have to wonder if Babcock won't mix a couple of the lines up or at least start occasionally double shifting Z with Shanny.

What a win. Maltby saving his best for the playoffs. Franzen knocking over Harvey and great saves by Manny. He made a little nervous for the first half and then came up big. Zata disappointed me a little. A few bad passes and mistakes,but we escaped with the win and hopefully he settles in a little better now.
Go Wings

Zata had one bad giveaway and one REALLY bad giveaway.
But he's playing with two guys who aren't of his caliber.

I don't care what you guys say, Samuelsson is not "fast."

TinCan thinks "fast" is exclusively an offensive thing....he obviously didnt see Samuelsson catch Samsonov from behind on the back-check or take the puck away from Smyth from behind after two or three strides. Samuelsson doesnt use his speed enough offensively unfortunately, and he needs to. Enough with the 30 foot slapshots and wristers.

Draper provides enough of these to cover the whole team. I can't help but crack a smile every time I see him wined-up for the 'huge shot' after crossing the blueline or along the boards. I guess you can always hope for a lucky rebound.

Well the game is over but thanks Fugu, much appreciated

It took the Wings 82:32 minutes to get the win but we got it

Who would have thought that Maltby who scored 5 goals during the regular season scores 2 tonight. Roloson was absolutly great for them, Manny also made some huge saves for us.

1 game and we made a step in the right directoin from here on we have to move foward.

Congratz guys

Factoid: When Maltby scores more than one goal in the playoffs, Detroit wins the Cup

I think I owe Maltby a bit of an apology.

Was it just me, or did they forget how to pass for the middle 40 minutes of regulation? Everything was a backhand flip pass, I don't think they went tape to tape once during those 40 minutes. Once they started passing the puck again, they completely controlled the game. Edmonton was doing a good job of forcing the defense to play the puck off their backhand, but the Wings seemed to adjust late in the 3rd and in OT and it seemed like the Oil were the ones making the bad backhand passes in the OTs.

Manny had a great game. 2 goals that he didn't have a chance on and he made some brilliant saves, especially at the end of regulation. Keep it up Manny!

Franzenstein was a beast in this game. Plus, he almost equaled his assist total from the whole regular season! FIRE BAD!!!!

Z was definitely disappointing in this one, as was Shanny. Shanny's line did nothing all game, and Sammy was the only one creating anything on the Swedish line. They got lucky that the others picked them up, but now it's time to get crackin'.

Stevie is god. It's that simple. I can't remember him playing this well in a loooooong time.

Lang played maybe his best game as a Wing, I thought. He was around the net all game, and he took a brutal shoulder to the face to make a pass and set up a scoring chance for Stevie. We've seen flashes from him before, but hopefully he's going to keep it up.

I was really impressed with the Kronwall-Lebda tandem. Kronwall was playing with Lidstrom at times too, and I thought he was solid all game. Lebda seemed like he was back in nervous, early season mode, and it helped his game a lot. He only jumped up a couple of times, and he had the puck both times. I think this is the key to him pinching effectively - if he has the puck, then he should keep skating until someone stops him, if he has an opening. Otherwise he should just mind the store. He did a great job in OT of pinning Smyth behind the net and taking the puck - Smyth is a much bigger guy, too, and Lebs just muscled him right off the puck.

Hopefully this broke their backs. A lot of times teams just can't recover after pouring their souls out on the ice like the Oil did in this one. Hopefully the Wings can jump all over them and get done in 4 or 5.
