Tomas Holmstrom‘s first career hat trick led Detroit past San Jose in the Shark Tank tonight. The Freep has the recap. Jiri Fischer has played really well since coming back from the minors. I’m willing to see that we’ll see a lot of him in the playoffs while Murphy and Duchesne sit out. Never know though, Bowman loves his veterans.
As for the Avs game, anyone who blames Osgood is a moron, you can’t expect your goalie to stop that many odd-man rushes. He held strong and kept the Wings in there and we nearly came back. Of course, Gary Thorne sounded like the happiest man alive when Bourque threw in the empty-netter. I hate national coverage.
