Wow what another exciting game. This series has been tremendous. This seems like the Stanley Cup Final and we’re only in the second round! These Red Wings never give up. Detroit threw all but the kitchen sink at Antti Niemi through two periods and he stopped everything.
Then early in the 3rd, a rather strange goal scored by Logan Couture gave the Sharks the lead. Couture slipped the puck between Jimmy Howard’s pads and it just slid over the goal line. When he was awarded the goal I thought to myself, the season can’t end like this. It didn’t. Detroit stormed back and netted the next three goals.
The series is tied and history can be made should Detroit win the next game in San Jose on Thursday. The Red Wings have never won a series trailing 3 games to none.
It seems like the Red Wings have the momentum on their side now. They’re feeling good about their game. With that said it all comes down to one game. That game will decide the winner of the series and the chance to meet the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference Final. Anything can happen.
No matter what the outcome, I can say that this series is one of the best series that I’ve ever seen. Two outstanding teams loaded with talent going toe-to-toe. Only one team can win, but there are no losers when this series concludes.
The Red Wings have climbed the mountain defying the odds. Now all that’s left is to place the flag on the summit.
