Former USN (EMN3)
Quite simply what is losing us this series is this.
Detroit has None.
no lucky bounces, no garbage goals. nothing.
Nashville? Lucky Bounces everywhere, garbage goals? that seems to be the only other type they get.
Detroit is Outplaying Nashville in almost every aspect of the game.
Detroit Dominated Game 1. Lost on Lucky Bounces.
Detroit Dominated Game 3. and Lost.
Detroit Dominated Tonight. and Lost.

Favorite part of the Game:
Nashville Scores first Goal
Nashville Fans: Hey Detroit, You Suck Chant starts.
Detroit Scores third goal.
@Jordan_Reis The Obvious answer than is to Clone Lidstrom, Datsyuk, and any one else neccesary and than just bring them up from birth to play hockey! can you imagine how much the rest of the league would hate showing up for games against Detroit with 12 Datsyuk's as our offensive lines? and 6 Lidstrom's on defense?
they would never even make it out of the neutral zone.

@moorecha oh, i think its hilarious, i just don't want to disgrace our board with an article about this completely infuriating player. maybe if he didnt dive, cry, or had class i could respect HIM, but as of right now i only have respect for his skill.
GOD DAMNIT Can we NOT Post stuff about this classless POS on our blog?
@Twig and i agree, the only reason i can see the league handing down a penalty is so i stop hearing "but Shanahan never Bans a WING, hes so BIASED (and ignore you when you point out 8 game Smith Suspension).

if it is a suspension, it will only be due to the unintended head contact and it should NOT be more then a game or two. Kronwall did not hit him from behind, he did not Target the head, and the player was NOT in a Defenseless position. Voracek had his head down by his own DOING, and that violates a major rule in hockey (keep your head up). if it is more than a game or two it will be a crime.
@ThroatShot @Twig better yet, Scratch his ass for a game or two.

@Twig doesn't exist.
Least Favorite Player of the Game: Goal Posts. seeing as Detroit hit at LEAST 7 of them. Seriously. Gordon Bombay'd.
Honestly, i was glad to finally see a "Holmstrom" call go our way, but frankly, it would have made zero impact on the game other than the Shutout. it was almost like the league said: "yes, Detroit we do like to screw you over MOST of the time, and when you finally have a game that DOESN'T EVEN MATTER, we will throw you a bone. hope you appreciate it!"

@Reddy yeah like when he completely sucked against Chicago and won at the UC right?

Honestly i always felt that most of the time the team as a whole gave terrible efforts for the most part when conks was in net. look at the games he played: New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, both terrible efforts and we get a loss. but he still managed to pull out wins when the team actually played (Dallas, Chicago). i always thought he got a bad rap. or at least more of a bad rap than he deserved.
i am confused but for now i will go with our old fallback mantra.

you know who pissed me off this game? 2 People. one wears a red and white 93. he played like a bag of garbage.
the other person? anyone wearing white and black stripes. seriously? seriously? the icing anyone? how about the blatent hook that every fan in the stands and mickey redmond saw? should i bring up the blatent interference on White in Overtime? or the fact that this game should not have gone to Overtime?
Why is it that the refs just seem to LOATHE Detroit? every game they will ignore maybe 25% of what Detroit does (and face it, 3 of 4 called still aint that great) but than ignore 50-75% of what everyone else does (how is it that Chicago, REPEATEDLY takes 2 or less penalties, or more importantly, 0, three times in the past two seasons, in the UC). am i the only one who feels this way? or is it just me.

This dude is worth it for so many reasons. i do not know or understand why but he seems to compliment Datsyuk and Franzen on that first line really well, and having him and the Mule on that line gives Opposition a thing or two to think about if they should try to "take a run" at everyone's favorite Russian. that and he can actually score, and as you mentioned, his Shootout ability might just be the best on the team. suprisingly enough.
