Was at the game. Pretty sure there would have been a riot if the Hawks lost after that terrible call.

I take solice in the fact that LA should take Chicago and either Pittsburgh or Boston will beat either one of Chicago or LA

Well, THAT really sucked.

That said, the Wings took it about as far as could be expected this year, given the adversity they faced.  They gave Chicago all they could handle and nearly pulled it off.

As much as I admire Kronwall, defensemen need to let goaltenders do their job

The Red wings went down fighting.
They made the Hawks earn it.
The Hawks will be a better / tougher team because they had to play the Wings.

Thw Wings…My gosh!
From a lousy team with a bunch of rookies, coached up by Babcock, led by Hank, and fantastic goaltending by Howie, they go to OT game 7 in round 2 against the President’s Cup winners.

THAT is one helluva season!
Well done!

I can’t shake thinking that if Holland had picked up one or two more defensemen, and Selanne hadn’t crippled DeKeyser’s hand, the season wouldn’t be over tonight.

I think your team had an incredible run in the playoffs & I for one glad the RW’s lost as they scare the shit out of me as a Pens fan.
