Emotions run high in game sevens. If this were Toews and Crawford instead of Kronwall and Howard, I’d say the same thing.

It’s one thing for a man to nearly choke up in interviews because he’s not getting what he wants. It’s completely different when you’ve given your all, and the puck bounces off of you and into the back of your net.

it just shows how much it means to Kronwall.  and a classy move by Howard. 

the whole team learned a lot of lessons this season, and this playoffs.  they’ll all be better for it next season.  with a training camp and a full season to work with, plus a healthy DeKeyser…the Wings should be a very, very good team.  23 years in a row, here we come!
