GDT - WCSF Game 7: Red Wings (3-3) at Hawks (3-3) 8:00

Win or go home.  Captain Obvious checking in says the keys for DET tonight:  The Big Dogs have to find the scoresheet:    Zetterberg has no goals in the series (three assists), and Pavel Datsyuk has only two points in the six games (goal, assist).  The invisibles need to be a force:  Franzen  has one goal and two assists in this series. Filppula has one goal and one assist.

More importantly, Jimmy has to be better than Crawford:  Howard,  0-2, 4.03, .890 in last 2 GPI;  Crawford,  2-1, 1.68, .944 in last 3 GPI.

Buckle up, and LGRW.

Me thinks Jimmy’s dip in save % has something to do with the proximity of the shooters of late.  Need to keep the front of the net clear tonight, or we are going home.

I like our chances if the refs just keep ‘em in their pockets. But the bottom line is we have so many mickey-mouse calls like delay-of-games and those hooks and holds that make little to no difference.

Keep the hawks outside our slot, get all over toews like a pathetic chin beard and drive the net.

Oh yeah….... defense: Please please find your breakout. Make Illitch pony up some extra scratch for your efforts tonight.

Go Wings!

......tonight would be the perfect moment for a KRONWALLING…..i would prefer toes, but garyass would insist on an unlimited suspension…..$0.20 would be a close second…..

If this happens (or the game winner in regulation), it would go a long way towards the feeling that this is a Team of Destiny.

Yup, I laughed.  In this scenario I’m pretty sure he finishes +2 on the game and that last goal caps off his hat trick.
