Detroit stunk up the joint , their D left Osgood out to dry . Pens kicked their asses tonight . Kronwall was a downright liability . Offense was severely lacking , who will step up ?

Pittsburgh play really good. I thought in the second that the wings might have it.

Game 5 should be real good.

Combination of Pittsburgh coming out to play, and Detroit hanging Ozzie out to dry. It's a 3 game series!! Nothing like a good finals series to keep you entertained.

Too bad I was not allowed to drink beer last night or I would have drank the Wings to victory!

Anyone notice if Yooper has changed her avatar back to Red Wings?

Yup, they possibly blew their entire season in a 6 minute stretch. Kronwall was embarrassing, and Hossa should stay in Pittsburg. I hope Datsyuk comes back for game 5, we all know the winner of that game wins the cup.

i'm pretty sure when he "slashed" him he got him right in the back of the knee, it really didn't look too harmful but i'm sure it probably hurt him for a few minutes. there were definately missed calls on both ends i thought it was called fairly. that first goal was really damn close too being offsides but i think it was too close to call for the refs. and detroits power play is really sucking hardcore. and i don't think datysuk is really gonna make that big of an impression if he comes back. i mean itll give them a boost in morale, but i'm sure he'll see limited ice time, and the pens will probably use his injury to their advantage. they are playing too fast and too aggressive for someone probably not skating 100 percent. and i don't understand why but it seems like they are trying to make sure crosby doesn't get any open ice with the puck but malkin seems like he is seeing plenty of it. im predicting upset in detroit, pens win 4-1.

lets go pens

Nope. Not yet. Just keeping this avatar as a reminder to behave.

If it stays civil, I'll bring back a more suitable avatar.

OK, so as to not get broiled before I begin... Nice game Pens. Well executed, great offense, good hits, good screens. Nice game.

Now as to Datsyuk... I think you may be right that he may only give the Wings a morale boost - but this series is being played so well, a morale boost is all the Wings need. But as I've stated before, I think you're right. Datsyuk isn't the answer.

The slashing... Come on. I'm sure by now you've seen the Youtube video that showed the play in slow motion. Not only did Crosby break his own stick, he never got touched at all. From the ref angle, the call I guess could be understandable. But it doesn't change the fact it WAS a bad call.

The offsides... Close, but also a missed call.

I'm not here to say that the refs have been good on either side of the ice. They haven't. But, it's just a bit hard to swallow that NO missed/bad calls against the Pens have been in situations where Detroit could capitalize. Missed calls have led DIRECTLY to 3 odd man rushes for the Pens - all resulting in goals in this series.

OPEN YOUR EYES REFS so we can debate the quality of games and not quibble about penalties!

Um, he did score 97 points this season, he wouldn't be skating if they didn't think he isn't going to be effective. Even at 80% his puck handling and passing skills will be a huge help. And they aren't going to lose 4-1 at home.

Th reffing has been terrible in the NHL ever since a large number of experienced refs retired a few years back. The league really needs to address this. It's making the sport look like a joke.

and...

If you make any comments on the zebras or their calls you get a big fat fine. Just ask Quenneville.

Betman really needs to get his head out of his ass.
