X Ways to Change History


Last year, we dropped 3, 1-goal games, put up a 7 spot in game 4 and then proceded to give away game 5.

This year, we dropped 3, 1-goal games, squeaked by in game 4 and then were poised to give away game 5.

And then something inexplicable happened.  The team that had shown little heart through the first 42 minutes, suddenly had a fire.  They were hustling, they were creating chances, and more importantly, they were capitalizing on those chances.  They decided that this series wasn't going to end in 5 games.  They wanted at least one last game at home in front of the Red Wings faithful.

And now they have it.

 

Follow me after the jump for the Game 5 X Ways.

I - The Magician did it again.  How many more tricks does he have up his sleeves?

II - I must admit, when the Sharks went up 2-0, I was about ready to give up.

III - Really Jumbo Joe?  That reaction on a stick tap?  Bin Laden didn't even react like that and he WAS shot.

IV - I think this may have been Big Rig's best game of the playoffs so far.

V - Not so easy to sucker punch a guy when he puts you on your ass first is it Clowe?

VI - Each win like this, solidifies Detroit's psyche and puts another crack in the Sharks'.

VII - Even when he blocks shots, Setoguchi dives.

VIII - I'm pretty sure Niemi's "Rebound Control" rating in NHL 12 is going to be single digits.

IX - Gator - KEEP. YOUR. ARMS. DOWN.

X - 3 out of 4 goals from the D.  Way to step up when the O was getting stymied.

 

Next Up: Tuesday from the Joe.  7:30 pm.  Let's take it to 7.
