If we had to lose Game 5,
we'll take this Hiroshima over a 3-2 triple-OT loss.
MAF will have a last chance at redemption in Game 7.
Yes, there will be a Game 7.
Joe Louis Arena
Series Tied 2-2
No one has to tell you what this game means.
Tonight is the chance to pull ahead in a playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings.
Tonight is the chance to show that we have learned.
Tonight is our opportunity.

- The strange Ghost Busters turn our gmail has taken.
- Some song we have avoided playing all playoffs.
- A pic of some red wings fan falling asleep in the stands
- List of great CBC montages
P.S. Strongly recommend "The Hangover." It is bizarre, vulgar, and provides a nice break from the rigors of the playoffs.
[P.S] we hid the title because it was too long. So its not your computer.

At this point everyone has jumped aboard the Pittsburgh Penguins bandwagon.
The same "journalists" that spent the last week writing about how the Detroit Red Wings are a machine that cannot be stopped have spent the last day talking about how that same machine is tired and that the momentum of the series has switched.
We haven't seen someone blatantly change allegiances like that since Marian Hossa Chris Chelios.
It's now a best of three.
Two of those three games could be in Detroit.
It's not going to be easy, but no one expected easy.

Something had to happen. This was last year all over again.
The Wings were preparing to fire their primary weapon.
The Pens had to disable it now.
So Jordan Staal went on a magical mystery tour.
He uses some unrealistic speed to fly through the neutral zone.
Brian Rafalski wished he was 10 years younger as Staal powers past him and beats Elroy.
Then the Mega Powers set the Mellon into a frenzy.
Not entirely lost in all of this is how huge TK's goal was.
It was almost as big as Staal's.
And let's not forget about MAF.
He has gotten exponentially better as the series has worn on.
Don't look now, but the exact opposite is happening at the other end.
Today is probably the most enjoyable Friday you've had in a while.
But we don't need to tell you what's next.
Pavel Datsyuk is waiting in Game 5.
Will they throw him into the fire immediately, against Malkin?
And is Zetterberg simply getting tired of "chasing Crosby around"?
Speaking of which, the Wings' tongues were hanging out in the third.
A move back to home ice won't change that.
And that aroma stinging your nostrils as you head into the weekend?
Red Wings Lead Series 2-1
One Year Ago
June 4th, 2008
On the surface, the story looks the same as last season.
Game One: Won by the Detroit Red Wings.
Game Two: Won by the Detroit Red Wings.
Game Three: Won by the Pittsburgh Penguins.
This is where the story changes.
It changes because the similarities are only on the surface.
Last year the Pittsburgh Penguins were horribly outplayed in games one and two.
Last year the Pittsburgh Penguins didn't understand how to play against the Detroit Red Wings.
Last year the Pittsburgh Penguins were lucky to stretch the series to six games.
It's different this year.

Fifty bucks to the first person who puts a Pensblog or Penguins sticker on that thing
and sends us a photo.
