Much like the thread for Game 1, I start the thread for Game 2 with news about Bertuzzi...

http://www.detnews.c.../704140424/1128

He's out. Seems like they're playing it safe, no reason to make a change since the lineup worked so well in Game 1. Can't argue with that but if the Flames get tougher, it'd be nice to have a bigger guy out there.

I understand the need to play it safe, but I think this might have an adverse effect. We'll see if we can make due on the physical onslaught sure to come!

Huge, huge early goal by Datsyuk. Great steal from Tanguay, I'm a bit surprised that Kipper couldn't stop the shot.

Lidstrom with the five-on-three goal! Wings have gotta keep this pressure up, don't let them get in the game at all.

Great game shaping up for the Wings early on... Too bad I gotta get going right now... I'll probably catch the highlights on the NHL site later...

Holy hell, I think everyone knew the Flames would come out strong, I don't think anyone expected them to come out stupid.

Damnit, Flames get on the board. I question the call on Samuelsson but in this game it's going to be called. We'll see if the Wings can keep Calgary from evening things up.

A break in the action, so I'll weigh in. The Wings seem to be trying hard to give this game away. Half way through the 2nd period, score 2-1, and if the action continues like it has for the last 20 minutes of regulation, The Wings will lose this game ....
I don't get it ..... Flames are winning the one-on-one battles, and throwing their weight around. Lang was drilled in front of the Flame bench. I hope that wakes him up!

Oh well, we'll see ...

Detroit looked a lot better at the end of the second. They weren't forechecking for sh*t for a lot of the period, maybe this is a sign that they're waking back up. Or maybe Calgary is burning out. Or both.

End of the 2nd and I'm not terribly impressed with the action. I don't see the FLAMES over powering, but I do see the WINGS failing to execute some pretty basic stuff. Only point I'll make, is that the WINGS had better not sit back. I've seen it happen, time and time again, with a 2 goal lead evaporating, because the WINGS fail to execute, losing battles in the corners and along the boards .... Its rediculous to out shoot an opponent 34-11 and only have a ONE goal lead ....... I'm p*ssed! :flagusa:

agreed, unexcusable goal differential right now considering the difference in shots. Wings need to execute better in the 3rd.

Valtteri Filppula is the next Slava Kozlov. He's becoming a playoff beast!

A great game puts the Wings up 2-0 going to the Saddledome. Great goals by Datsyuk, Lidstrom, and Filpulla.

Calgary will be going out in a clean sweep! (Had to say that cause my bro's a Flames fan... lol)

Really strong finish by the Wings, hope they're not giving the Flames anything to build on in Calgary. This makes Game Three a virtual must-win for the Flames. If the Wings can split the next two games (or better), they're sitting nicely.

I think Calgary will squeak away with one at home, but as you said, Detroit needs to at least split it at the Saddledome and get a win back at the Joe.

They had me worried in the 2nd period. The fact is, Calgary hasn't showed up yet. Out shot and out played badly in both games. They're obviously p*ssed, and I'm sure, they'll do a lot of soul searching on the flight back to Stampede Land ..... Quite honestly, I find it hard to believe the WINGS have had as easy a time with them.

Well its off to the Steer and Saddleville ........... A steak sounds pretty good about now. Think I'll rustle one up ...YeeHAAAA! :P
