we got to win this game. game 4 was whatever, i wasnt even too upset at the loss, just at the reffing. but this is critical. a win means we chill at home. a win means we end the detroit dreams of a comeback. a win means we don't have to fly back and forth in the span of 3 days. a win means we can start prepping for vancouver. we need to win today.
The eyes of the entire hockey world will be on HP Pavilion -- it's the only game of the day.
Sharks need to show their ruthlessness and pull out the Wings heart by a strong win. Besides, it will give the home fans a chance to see a handshake line (and we don't want to wait until game 7 - regardless of the outcome).
Hey Wings' fans... "Don't Stop Believing" may mention Detroit, but the writers/original singers are a band from the Bay Area.
