  1. Hmm, it is a good day for a sweep. :)

    I hope I’ll be back in time, but I’m going to a jam session and might miss some of the first period. ): Not that it really matters. Leave some good notes! :D

  2. Injury status for the Avalanche:

    Paul Stastny (out)

    Peter Forsberg (hopeful)

    Ryan Smyth (doubtful)

    Wojtek Wolski (out)

    It seems as though Jose Theodore still gets the start in tonight’s Game Four. Haven’t seen anything to indicate otherwise.

    The Wings lineup looks like it will remain unchanged.

    Obviously, it would be good for the Wings if they can wrap things up tonight but it’s far from critical. Finishing things tonight would mean they’d get more rest than whoever they play next but all four Conference Semifinal series’ could end in the next game so it wouldn’t be by much. More important is to at least win by Game Five, to spare the travel back to Denver for a Game Six.

    Even with a 3-0 lead, I’m still nervous. I’ll feel better when this series is over.

  3. Three-or-four really should have had that. And Lilja gets the assist. I’ll be damned.

    Awful call on Homer.

  4. What the f*ck was that call? Should have been the other way around. And just f*cking typical! f*cking goal on the powerplay.

  5. And of course the Avs take advantage.

    Conspiracy theory from A2Y: Ref bias for Colorado ’cause NBC wants Game 5 to happen.

  6. And the Avs take a penalty to end the period. If the Wings can score on the power play to start the period, this game is almost over. The idea of being able to calm down is so nice.

  7. FFFFRAAANNNZZZEENNNNN!!!!!! I think that’s a goal a game now.

    Shalalala shalalala heyyyy goodbye!

  8. Hat trick, Mule!

    IIRC, he just broke another Gordie Howe record, most goals in a playoff series.

  9. Two hat tricks in one series. f*cking hell.

    And also – HUMILIATION!

  10. How about three. That would be like unloading a lorryload of salt into a gaping wound. Then rubbing it in as hard as possible.

  11. Or having your face rubbed into a landfill site.

    Okay, I’ll stop now, you get the idea. It’s way too late/early to actually know what I’m saying.

  12. What a great preview for Fabian Brunnstrom. “Look what you get when you come to Detroit, Fabian. Seven goals, all scored by Swedes. Just sign on the dotted line and you could be a part of it.”

  13. Gotta be careful here, all the Avs need is to score once every 30 seconds for the rest of the game…

    :flagcanada:

  14. Classy, classy move by the Avs fans to cheer their team even after the loss. Glad to see it.

  15. GET OUT THE BROOMS! :D Finally! I can say it <|3333333 That was an awesome way to end the series, and now I get to make fun of my friend tomorrow(Avs fan ): ) Awesome, awesome, awesome. Johan Franzen...is indescribable. I can't believe how well he's played lately. But hahaha, 'sweep' also rhymes with 'sleep' which is what I'm off to do now. :flagcanada:

  16. Talking of sleeping….I don’t know how I managed to make it. I was knackered before the start of the game. Goodnight.

  17. A little history…

    The Wings last scored 8 goals in a playoff game on April 15, 2000, against the Kings.

    The last time they finished the first round in six games and the second round in a sweep was 1997, a year they went on to win the Cup.
