The speculation this time around is that Jiri Hudler will be back in the lineup and either Kyle Calder or Mikael Samuelsson will be out.

The Wings need the win today to make sure they won't be facing elimination on the road tomorrow.

The last three times the Wings won a Game Five to take a 3-2 series lead, they won the series (2004 Nashville, 2002 Vancouver, 1998 Phoenix). Four of the last five times they lost Game Five to go down 3-2, they lost the series. The lone exception was the 2002 Western Conference Finals against Colorado.

Yzerfan, nice wrap on the game, appreciate your coverage and thanks from the West Coast!

After the last game I'm basically in the dark as what to expect from the Wings. I had expected a do or die attitude from the Wings in the last game, but it didn't manifest into anything even close to that. I'm a huge fan of the game and have been watching all of the series thus far, only missing the last Anaheim contest...if you want to call it that. Anyway, the Sharks look hungry and the Ducks are deliberate in their overall game performance. Detroit just plainly looks tired and is clearly rattled after the last two games. I had hoped that the Wings would be more intimidating while visiting Calgary, but again they were submissive and mentally beaten. The Calgary Fans, along with the Flames beat Detroit and that's the bottom line. */My best effort as a fan/*

*/My take as a spectator/*
In all of my years watching the NHL, I have yet to see such a transition from a team like Calgary from one place (Detroit) to the next (Calgary) and can't help thinking that this is all scripted or something. It's all so f*cking ridiculous that I can't even begin to believe it. I can't bring it to reason why the Wings would allow such fallacious and superfluous effort during the games in Calgary. If the Flames need to boost their economy with a long playoff run, then f*cking do it with some other team. I'm tired of watching Detroit get beaten by teams that reside in Canadien Cities that are financially struggling (Edmonton). As if Detroit itself isn't struggling after all of the layoffs from the Big 3. My family back there is struggling and I feel cheated!! If the league wants to continue to make cheap calls while in Canada, then my days of watching this sport are about to end. I won't believe that Calgary can go into their house and thrive the way they did, while Detroit all of a sudden has issues. During the last game the Ref's had to back off of the sh*t calls mid-way through the second, as it was clearly obvious what was going on. I'm going to call for an investigation on Gary Bettman for game tampering and tainted officiating in professional sports! Clearly this is exactly the type of poor leadership this Bettman provides to the league. And I will tell you this, Shanahan is the first guy I would want an investigating committee to visit secretly. ;)

Yeah, that's my take on this sport from a spectator, and if you think it's a huge farce, check your wallet, because your government lives inside it!

Go Wings! No Bullsh*t! ;)
Who are you? This is the definitive question. "You are who you say you are and will be."

Kipper gets his hand swatted at: goalie interference. Iginla elbows Hasek (Game Four): nothing. Hooray for consistancy.

Huge stop by Hasek!

Go Wings! Heard an interesting fact about Domink Hasek's contract. If he wins the first series against Calgary, he gets a $450,000 bonus.

I can't object to that move. CALDER has not had a productive series in terms of points, although his play hasn't been negative. Hate to gravitate back to LANG, but I would have taken him out before CALDER.

Haha. Once again, I complain about LANG'S play and he comes back with two scoring OPPORTUNITIES that, unfortunately, don't turn into goals.

Ignila takes a shot at Zetterberg to end the period. "It's okay, it's the playoffs." Right, because I'm sure they'd say that if a Wing did it.

Ok Great Work by Cleary, followed by a picture perfect move on Kiprusoff. Then Zetterman's opportunity, shows the Wings are Hungry. But, HOLMSTROM takes a penalty. Thank goodness its 0-4 on the Flames power play.

Zata with the PPG!

Aww damn, Cleary's not looking good.

Good to see Cleary walk off under his own power, hope he's alright.

Good to see Cleary make it back out on the ice. Looks like he was just knocked silly for a bit.

I'm not even sure how to respond to the end of that game. If there aren't suspensions to Playfair (how's that for a wrong name) and Iginla, the fix is in. I think it's safe to say that McLennan is gone.

I know that sometimes I can get a little lofty in my assessments of games, but f*ck, if you see Iginla in the game tomorrow this f*cker is fixed!! The league better stop this sh*t the Flames are dishing out. They better make a stand and have at least two game play susp, the one on Lebda and the Schneider butt from Iginla. I use to have some respect for that guy, but that is about as cheap as it gets. Does Detroit hit and take cheap shots when they are losing!! NO, this is really ugly to see in the NHL.

I was late on that post Yzerfan, you are spot on right bro!

I gotta be honest man, if I was playing out there during the last 3 minutes of that game I'd feel really unsafe to the point I'd tell the coach to make the refs call the game. Really, what the f*ck were they expecting Detroit to do. We're up by 4 goals and they want to throw down when they play tomorrow. That team is a bunch of freakin idiots! I hope to get out of this series unscathed.

Babcock refused to talk about the final minutes. Said something like "Well, I'm not gonna talk about that." I think he should have added "You can ask Jim Playfair about it."

All I can say is DISGUSTING I have never in my life seen unsportmanlike play like that. I am completely disgusted. They put their backup goalie into the game to take out the first redwing he saw. Iginla needs a suspension for butt-ending, Langkow should go for that little Uppercut to the neck of Lebda, and the coach needs a fine as well as the entire organization. This is absolutely ridiculous. I am still mad, and I am still shaking my head.

Shame on the Flames organization, all of that is completely unexcusable. If you don't see any suspensions from this game other than McClennan, I will not be suprised if I see a little repeat of the Avs-Redwings fight. Put Osgood in for the first 5 minutes and let him show Kipper what it's like to bleed on the ice. Put Bertuzzi, Cleary, Maltby, Markov, and Lilja all in at the same time and watch the fireworks go. Iginla vs. Lilija, Bertuzzi vs. Phaneuf, Markov on Langkow, Cleary on Conroy, and Malts takin on Brad Stuart.

On a happier note, I won't be suprised if we see a bit of a blow-out in favor of the Redwings tomorrow. We have the flames panicing again, Just like game 2. They'll take stupid unneccessary penalties and we'll run up the score. We'll shut up the Saddledome for sure. In addition, they had Iginla and company on the ice way too much for a back to back the next day. We'll see how slow they are tomorrow.

F*ck you flames. ;) ;) ;) :evil:
