NHL releases statistical preview of Game 7 of Red Wings-Blackhawks series

From the NHL's PR department:

BLACKHAWKS, RED WINGS MEET IN GAME 7 FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 1965

NEW YORK (May 28, 2013) -- For the first time in nearly half a century and just the third time in their 87-year rivalry, the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings will contest a Game 7 when the clubsdecide their Western Conference Semifinal Wednesday night in Chicago (8 p.m., ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

The clubs last met in a Game 7 on April 15, 1965, when the Blackhawks posted a 4-2 win at Olympia Stadium in Detroit to capture their semifinal series. The Red Wings had eliminated the Blackhawks in Game 7 of the semifinals the previous year in Chicago, also by a 4-2 score.

The rosters for these two games featured a dozen future members of the Hockey Hall of Fame -- seven for Detroit (Alex Delvecchio, Bill Gadsby, Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Marcel Pronovost, Terry Sawchuk and Norm Ullman) and five for Chicago (Phil Esposito, Glenn Hall, Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Pierre Pilote).

Let the teams decide who moves on and not the REFS!!  It’s ridiculous - called off good goals, not making calls that result in goals, stupid penalty shots!!  Make it a FAIR game and then whoever advances, deserves it!

I get the feeling that the mindset of the league with respect to the officials is not “call what happens” but “manage the game, and take part in the spectacle and try to make it entertaining.”  which, of course, is bs.  but that seems to be the only rational explanation for the on-again-off-again “we’re not going to figure into the outcome” just before they figure into the outcome.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
