  1. So after the first two games I asked whether or not the Lightning were afraid of the Red Wings.  After Game Three, they should be.


    Whether it was coming home to Joe Louis Arena, the lineup changes, a general wakeup call, or something else, Detroit seemingly flipped a switch.  They didn’t look quite as dangerous as I’d like offensively but defensively they shut down Tampa’s top line – a line that has given them fits for two years – and exposed their lack of depth.  Aided by the fact that Petr Mrazek had a pretty great game in his return to the crease.


    And they needed to.  It was a virtual must-win.  As is Game Four on Tuesday, with the Wings needing to hold serve.
