i thought they called a very good game, i mean they did miss that to many men but they didn't see it and the wings didn't see it until it was too late. i dont think they are calling the very borderline penalties which is good. both teams got their powerplays but the penguins got 2 goals out of them. fleury was a lot more solid that game. osgood was good too he obviously didn't see that shot from gonchar coming. the big hits from the pens looked like it started to wear the wings down at times there, and created a few turnovers, and thats how you have to play the wings. hopefully the pens come out with the same type of style on thursday to tie up the series.

lets go pens

Your kidding right? They are stacked by buying half the talent in the league! That's the parallel I was after

I'm just glad we have a series, it wasn't looking good after game 2.

The difference in this game was Fluery didn't suck. much. after the first.

The stacked team/Yankees reference is not accurate. NHL has a salary cap. You can't really go out and buy a team.

And, as predicted earlier, there are more Wings fans are posting here, now that they have figured out that their team is in the finals.

Yeah, I love when people try to make that analogy without realizing there's a salary cap.

Makes it even more impressive that both Detroit and Pittsburgh are back in the finals.

I was disappointed in my man Clearys play last night but he'll come around like the rest of the team and take the next two games. Go Wings.

Refs did ok last night. Standard missed calls. I was practically yelling for them to catch the too many men, but Pittsburgh got the extra off before they caught it.

I think Pittsburgh played better defensively last night, while Detroit seemed to be off a bit. Still it was a pretty even match again and pretty exciting. Both my wife and I had the same thought at one point, "Is it still just the first period?" Lots of action crammed in there.

I think the Wings who was sliding over to block that one goal should have done a better job. I expect them to risk injury or death to stop a goal! Going down on a knee didn't cut it.

The refs were just letting them play. What's wrong with that? *sarcasm*

I'm not a total idiot, I realize there is a salary cap. I guess the word I should have used was "have" not "bought" but it was late
One of our junior A guys said the same thing at practice last night. It's more of a compliment then a dis, Detroit is a helluva organization.

Which is why I want to see them go down!

Which is why Detroit can get someone like Hossa to come in for less money. Ken Holland has done a great job putting this team together - past, present and future. Guys like Ericsson, Helm and DarthKbader wouldn't be up if it weren't for injuries, but they've shown that they can play with the big boys. Holland doesn't believe in pushing the youngsters too fast unless it's absolutely necessary. Let them tear it up in Grand Rapids and when they get to Detroit they can step right in.
