Misconduct

Game Four Pregame Notes

Kicking this thread off early 'cause I'm planning on building my new deck all day and really don't know if I'll have time to post later. Hell, I don't even know if I'll catch the game yet.

Only note I find interesting is that Mike Babcock is considering swapping out Jason Williams for Mattias Ritola. To that, I shrug.

Ritola didn't knock my socks off in his stint with the team earlier this year but I'm also of the opinion that Williams can't get out of Detroit fast enough. Brad May would be no better of an addition. Jan Mursak? Not really a lot of options. And having Williams as the right-handed shot on the point on the power play doesn't matter if you don't get any power plays.

I still have a tiny bit of hope that the Red Wings can pull this off but not if they play like they've played the first three games of the series, specifically the third period on Tuesday.

Win tonight and it's back to San Jose with the Sharks knowing they blew a chance to sweep. Win Saturday and it's back to Detroit with everyone in the hockey world talking about how this could be a classic San Jose choke job.

So it'll take a lot, and it'll take the Sharks crumbling a bit, but stranger things have happened. I'm not sure I see it happening but the possibility is there if the Wings can rise up and take it.

I thought the linesman was supposed to warn you if you had too many men. Oh, wait.

Power play goal!

I was just about to say that the first PP unit looked a lot better than the second. Glad to be wrong.

Goal goes to Bert.

Do we get organic curly fries for a natural hat trick?

Raffy with a hell of a shot and great move to start the rush.

This game reminds me of last game of the 2002 series against Colorado.

Side Note: Habs up 3-2 on the Pens

No one saw a five-on-three coming, I'm sure.

With the trouble I'm having getting materials, this series will be over no matter what before I finish the deck.

Klassy, Thornton. You can ride home with Heatley now.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/6/2010 at 9:41 PM

 

Franzen remembered we're in the playoffs. Wow.

Ritola, Helm, and Miller out on a five-on-three. Weird night.
