Take another look at that picture where I circled in red!

I didn't notice that at first.

Shero adding Guerin and Kunitz to Sid's wings was one of the best "in-season" surgeries a GM has performed on his team in some time.

Combine that with the coaching change and what can you say? The results speak for themselves.

Funny, too, isn't it? In a wretched, losing environment Fedotenko and Guerin were lifeless on Long Island. Now look at them. How fortunate they must feel.

The Hurricanes showed more heart and courage than any team I've seen in a while. Great run for them and nothing to be ashamed of.

Absolutely. They gave it all they had throughout the series and up until that final second ticked off the clock last night. Just wasn't enough as the Pens just weren't going to be denied another opportunity to get to the SCF and hoist the Lord Stanley!

So - should I root for the Wings tonight so we can start this next series off this Sat and Sunday - back to back games while they're still beat up?

According to multiple sources, if the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings can wrap up their respective Conference final series by Wednesday night, the Stanley Cup finals likely would start on Saturday, May 30 in Detroit. In this scenario, Game 2 would be played on Sunday, May 31.

I look at it this way, if the Wings win tonight they're still going to be less rested than us and injured, as much as they would be if they go more games. Actually they'd be more tired and possibly a little more hurt.

I'd still rather Hoser not make it to the Finals at all, but there's no way the Blackhawks are going to win the next three straight. I'm rooting that Chicago at least takes another game or two and continues to beat the living crap outta them. Then we'll have them for the one-two punch.

I read the same opinion on TSN today. I look at it this way. If I though the hawks could take the series to a game 7 then by all means. But, if I understand things correctly, if the series ends tonight, the SCF starts Saturday. On the other hand, if it goes to game 6 and the Wings still win the SCF might not start until next Friday. That is too much rest for the Pens to remain sharp and too much time for the Wings to recoup.

Let's just get it on Saturday.

That's a good plan too



Lidstrom, Datsyuk out for Game 5

Coach just said that neither Nicklas Lidstrom (lower body) or Pavel Datsyuk (foot) will be in the lineup for tonight's Game 5 of the Western Conference final.

"I think they're both getting closer," "I'd like to think they'll play the next time we play. I thought that today though."

--------------------------

Maybe the Hawks can inflict some more damage - sneak this one out - make it 3-2 and send it back to Chicago.
