Postgame: Red Wings @ Bruins - Game One - 4/18

So I'm still having trouble putting thoughts together about the Red Wings' Game One win in Boston but I'll give it a shot...

The cliche thing to say is that it's only one game but it's true. For all we know, Detroit's 1-0 win awakens a sleeping beast and the Bruins win the next four straight.

That said, the fourth-seeded Wings showed that they can go into Boston and beat the top team in the league tonight. They showed that the Bruins can be shut down. They showed that they won't be intimidated.

And of course they showed that Pavel Datsyuk is amazing. Screw the shot, it was through a screen and those find their way through all the time. Picking up the errant pass from Franzen, one-handed behind his back and passing it between his own legs to himself and then taking off... Dude finds new ways to make your jaw drop all the time.

So a 1-0 win, and a 1-0 series. I don't have high expectations for Sunday but it doesn't matter, one out of two in Boston was required and they got it tonight.

Wings survived early, got some momentum with the power play, Bruins came back on at the end. Not carrying the play by any means.

1st per: Wings just surviving until late power play gives momentum. 2nd per: Wings controlling until late power play kills momentum

So glad this game was on local Fox...pretty sure if I'd watched the national broadcast, Wings would have lost....

Pretty sure my brain is broken still.

I really hope the league makes Lucic sit for a game or two, he's such a dirtbag. Theres no way he should be getting off free for crap like that.

$5000 fine. As I just Tweeted, it will cost me a higher percentage of my annual salary to go to Game Three than it will cost Lucic of his to have speared DeKeyser.

Once again, the league gets it wrong.
