    Wings don't look like they have their poop together so far this game.

    Anaheim is a great 8th seed. They are the toughest out in the West IMO.

    They sorta remind me of the Devils back when they swept the Wings for the cup.

    Anaheim has all of the jump, all of the aggressiveness.

    Wings look like they are going to fold. They are getting out hit and out skated and on the road, that won't get it done.

    Whenever the Wings play the Ducks in the post season, their Goalie just happens to be peaking at the wrong time~~~ for the wings...Hiller stopped what 60+shots on Sunday and last time it was Gigire who was hotter than hot.

    These guys need to get some pep in their skates as they seem a tad slow all over the ice

    That last rush looked pretty good, the Wings are going to need a lot of hard work, so they can earn some lucky bounces, and find a win. Don't want to go down 1-2 on the road.

    2-1 Ducks. Wings just scored on the PP, and beat up one of Anaheim's defenseman so he had to leave on a stretcher.

    Awesome. Hopefully that guy's season is done. We're playing without Raffi and it shows.

    Seems like all of the shots by the wings the last couple of games are dead on shots...no one ever seems to set up a player on the side of the net or coming in from the wing to deflect a shot past Hiller

    Intent my behind!!! That way the refs can wave any play in the game saying that they "intended to blow the play dead". I hope that ref doesn't see another playoff game.
    Why do they have an office in Toronto to review all plays live? But I guess Buttman hates giving the cup to the Wings. Ilich should be on the phone giving it to the NHL management. What a load of crap as much as he and Wings did for the league. They won't put them in the East because then crap teams like Columbus and Nashville won't have any people going to the games. And after that the league stiffs Wings year after year. This is looking like 2007 all over again.

    If I say anything more on this, Roscoe will be forced to ban me for using profanity.

    Yeah even the local Ducks announcers couldn't believe the how they got the lucky break there.

    Hiller had been fantastic kicking back 45 saves last night and 60+ in the 3 OT game, but no need to give him a freebie

    Hopefully this is the wakeup call and the Wings can take care of this in 7 at the Joe the end of next week.

    I love Chris Chelios, but it might be time for him to hang 'em up.

    He's playing like a 47 year old lately.

    I don't think he looked that bad. One of the goals was Lebda's boneheaded play. And Cheli drew 2 powerplays in the 3rd to give Wings chances to tie. My thing is that Wings should play a complete game the way they played in the 3rd period and they'll wear Anaheim down.

    Now NHL says that the ref made the correct call. What a bunch of clowns this league is. A correct call would've been if the goalie froze the puck. The fact that the ref was way out of position in the corner rather then on the top of the net trying to find the puck when making the call is not "making the correct call". Now they are blaming Ducks uniforms for being black and causing ref to lose sight of the puck? Besides that the whistle blew so fast before anyone could figure out what's going on.
    This league will always be far behind the others, and they may be taken over by NASCAR in the ratings the way things are going.
