Game 6: Wings 3, Oilers 4

Update (7:13 PM, 02. May): Okay, enough with the comments about our interpretation of, and reaction to, Hemsky's first goal. None of us at OtW believe that goal was the reason the Wings lost and I believe Brian stated that pretty clearly in his first paragraph. I personally distinctly remember seeing Hemsky's foot turn, pull back, and move forward in an umistakable kicking-like motion. But, as many of you have been so kind to point out, the puck went in off the crest of his jersey, not the foot, so any type of kicking motion is entirely irrelevant. The goal obviously should have counted and we know it wasn't the game winner. So, don't think we OtW bloggers, at least, believe that's why Edmonton won, or that we are whining about it. The juveniles in the forums, maybe, but not us. The posted reaction is just an attempt to come to terms with it all. That said, having the game tied up in such a screwy way brutally sucked and I still have a bad taste in my mouth. That's all I have to say for now. Maybe in a day or two I'll have more. And, for those of you who are coming here to leave a gloating comment, acquire some class and bug off. -- Matt The Wings lost a 2-0 lead in the third period, as well as a 3-2 lead with four minutes left, and a goal from Hemsky with 1:06 remaining gave Edmonton a 4-3 win over the Wings. Edmonton won their first playoff series in 8 years, 4-2 , and did it at home. Yzerman had 13:04 of ice time, and assisted on Robert Lang's power play goal in the 2nd. Manny Legace had 26 saves on 30 shots, and wasn't individually to blame for the loss tonight. To blame was Andreas Lilja, who blew coverage on the winning goal as well as on the goal that made it 2-2 midway through the 3rd period. He flat out left Legace out to dry by covering the wrong guys and leaving Pisani and Hemsky open for their respective goals. Holland should be eating crow for recently signing Lilja to a 2 year, $2 million deal. Also, Samuelsson didn't help with his turnovers and two penalties in the 1st. Finally, the Wings dominated the 2nd period with 17-2 shots, but only converted that lopsided margin in chances to one goal. That and a number of shots hitting the post will haunt the Wings all summer. Tonight it was more a breakdown in defensive coverage than a lack of offense that killed the Wings, though more goals would've helped of course. First Period Both teams started the game with energy, with Zetterberg opening the scoring chances at 0:53. On the play, Zetterberg got a point blank chance after the puck took a bad bounce in front of Roloson. The Wings sustained pressure on the Edmonton end, and Datsyuk was strong on the next shift with a chance between the circles. At 2:36, Yzerman took his first check of the game from Stoll and appeared very sensitive coming off of it. He would play only 3 minutes and take only one faceoff in the first, due to his back injury. At 3:59, Lebda jumped in on offense and his shot almost caught Roloson off guard with Samuelsson creating trouble in front. Draper followed the rebound with his own shot on Roloson. At 4:19, Samuelsson was caught hooking Horcoff. It was an automatic call, and a bad way to start the game for the Wings. Samsonov had the best chance of the Oilers powerplay, driving the net off the near side with bad angle shot on Legace. Cleary cleared the Wings zone (how appropriate), and the Wings killed off the first Oilers powerplay. For the next two minutes, the Oilers commanded the tempo and stuck in the Wings zone with sustained pressure. The Wings didn't allow any quality chances, but their offensive stagnation was disappointing. At 7:50, Samsonov had a wrap-around chance on Legace after a Wings giveaway behind the net. Then, at 8:16, Schneider coughed the puck up at center and Horcoff nearly had a breakaway. Luckily, he was not confident with the puck and pulled back to dump it off to a teammate. The Oilers had a tendency of doing that tonight. At the midpoint of the period, the Oilers had an 8-4 advantage in shots and the crowd was into it. The Oilers were getting a lot of odd man rushes, the result of Wings giveaways and trouble passing the puck (partly the same thing). At 10:33, Schneider was called for high sticking behind the play, as the Wings were about to carry the puck into the Oiler zone. Samsonov was strong again, and forced Manny to make a tough glove save in traffic. The Wings had a good penalty kill other than that, with blocked shots from Chelios and finally Maltby. Coming off the penalty kill, I noted how the Wings were in desperate need of a powerplay to kill the Edmonton momentum. Soon after, at 14:36, Zetterberg scored an even-strength goal. On the play, a falling Samuelson passed across to Zetterberg on the near side. Zetterberg took the pass and beat a poorly positioned Spacek, before deiking on Roloson to make it 1-0 Wings. It was a very timely goal for Zetterberg, the Wings needing it to kill the energy of the crowd. Now my focus was getting the Wings to escape this period still up a goal, since Edmonton had carried all the play until this out-of-the-blue goal by Henrik. At 16:29, Samuelsson was called for high sticking, his stick riding up Jason Smith's arms to make contact near the face. A Pronger blast at 16:35 hit the post to the left of Manny, the refs quickly waving it off. It looked good, and it was a break for the Wings that it clanked off the post. Draper and Maltby had a shorthanded 2-on-1, but Maltby was stopped on a pretty weak shot. A Pronger interference call at 17:09 nullified the Oiler powerplay. He was called for picking a Wings player, something Oilers fans thought should've been called on Lidstrom during the winning goal of Game 4. The Wings got a 40 second powerplay after Samuelsson got out of the box, but they couldn't even gain the Oiler zone. Shots were 15-10 for the Oilers in the first period, and the Wings were very lucky to escape with a 1-0 lead. Second Period The Oilers opened the second period with a wrap-around chance from Pisani at 1:05, with Torres in front. Legace had good positioning and made the save on the post. It would be one of the few Oiler chances of the second period. At 3:03, Maltby had a backhand chance off the near side. The rebound fluttered out to the mouth of the crease, but there was no trailing Wing on the play to pick it up. At 4:54, Spacek was caught hooking Lang after a Rem Murray giveaway. It was a good penalty for the Oilers to take after the turnover. The Wings powerplay lasted only 24 seconds, with a Holmstrom penalty for goaltender interference nullifying the man advantage. At 6:46, Datsyuk clanked one off the post after picking up a Spacek turnover. Williams picked up another Spacek turnover soon after, to which the CBC crew joked that Spacek shouldn't have gotten out of bed this morning. The story of the second period was Edmonton's inability to convert on dump-ins, and their subsequent passing up the middle led to a number of turnovers (Spacek the culprit on a few just mentioned). At 9:24, Cleary nearly scored after shooting on Roloson from behind the net. Roloson was awkward on the save, twisting around to grab Cleary's rebound chance. At 11:55, Yzerman carried it into the Oiler zone and made his patented cut-back move. His shot went off the near post, and it was good to see Yzerman have an energetic shift like that. After this chance, the CBC crew began what became a complement-athon of Yzerman's career and they basically put up all his career numbers. You can bet they were waiting to do this. At 13:51, Pronger was called for high sticking on Samuelsson. The Wings scored just 11 seconds into the powerplay, with Yzerman centering Lang for a between the circles bang-bang play. Yzerman's faceoff win over Stoll was crucial on this play. 2-0 Wings. At this point, shots were 10-1 Wings in the 2nd. At 15:11, Hemsky had a near-breakaway, but he pulled up looking to pass it, apparently afraid to carry the puck and use his own speed. After getting booted from a faceoff, Yzerman had a wrist shot that went off Roloson's shoulder and fluttered behind him. Although he lost track of it, Roloson was able to do a snow-angel and catch the puck on the goal-line. At 16:40, Shanahan hit the post driving the net and ran right over Roloson, drawing boos and the "bull sh*t" chant. This also led the CBC crew to pull out the scripted argument that any non-call on the Wings is due to their being veterans and thus are "reputation calls." Now that's bull sh*t. The Wings closed out the period strong, and led shots 17-2 in the 2nd. Third Period The Oilers' second period was so bad that Don Cherry came out in the second intermission (he usually only does the first intermission) to call it a "disgrace for a team at home to play like that." Well, the Oilers must've been watching CBC in the locker room, because they definitely turned it around in the third. It also didn't help when Mickey Redmond jinxed the Wings by saying we didn't need any more goals and could just protect our lead to win. Right...when have two goals ever been enough this series? At 1:44, Datsyuk broke in 1-on-1 with Staios, and got decked by Staios after getting a shot off. At 2:43, Winchester had a good chance in front on a one-timer, but fanned on it. This came after Kronwall failed to clear the zone. A scrum ensued, and Williams was picked by the refs for a penalty after he jumped in late. The refs have been doing this all playoffs to eliminate scrums after every stoppage, and Williams messed up. The Williams roughing call came back to bite the Wings, with Pisani scoring at 2:56 to make it 2-1 Wings. It came off a rebound on a Stoll shot, and Manny was caught out of position after the initial save. Not a weak goal at all. This brought the crowd into it, and Peca broke in on Legace at 3:36 after elbowing Lebda at center ice. It was a dirty hit, and the refs didn't see it or else it would've been a penalty. The Peca breakaway fizzled out with not much of a shot on Manny, but Peca did enjoy running Manny over at the end. At 6:10, Lebda hit the post from the far side, off a bad angle shot fed by Williams. I can't take Lebda hitting the post anymore...At 6:40, the Oilers carried the puck down after the Lebda post, and Pisani scored alone in front of Manny. On the play, Lilja failed to cover his man, and left Pisani wide open and Manny out to dry. 2-2 tie. Pisani, the Edmonton native, was energetic throughout, and the crowd seemed to feed off his play. Well, it was a new game now, with Edmonton owning the third period thus far. Mickey Redmond was eating crow after his prediction that the Wings' 2-0 lead was enough to win it. At this point, shots were 5-1 Edmonton. At 7:52, Moreau was called for tripping Kronwall in the Wings zone. On the powerplay, Datsyuk had a chance between the circles but switched to his backhand, and the shot wasn't strong enough to beat Roloson. Shanahan and Lang missed the net on rebound chances. At 10:07, Franzen scored an even-strength goal to make it 3-2 Wings. On the play, Maltby held it in the Edmonton zone and ripped it at the net. The shot went off the post, and Franzen picked up the rebound to stuff it into an empty net. It was Franzen's 1st career playoff goal. At this point, the crowd was killed and the Wings were generating great pressure in the Oilers zone. Things were looking great. With 5:36 left, the Edmonton crowd was begging for a powerplay and they finally got it with a Cleary interference call. The Oilers scored at very controversial goal at 16:07, with Hemsky kicking the puck in the net following what should've been a high-stick on Horcoff. On the play, Horcoff had his stick above his head and redirected a point shot at Legace. Mike Leggo and Mick McGeough blew the call, as it was pretty obvious Horcoff tipped the puck with a high-stick. McGeough was the closest on the play. Legace attempted to cover the rebound off the Horcoff re-direct, but couldn't get his glove on it. Hemsky picked up the rebound and was seen in the replay kicking it in, with Lidstrom pushing him in the back. McGeough called it a goal on the spot, and the play went under review to Toronto. It was ruled a goal. Since they couldn't review the Horcoff high-stick, they could only review whether Hemsky kicked it in. It appeared obvious to everyone that he did, so the only reason I can see that they ruled it a goal was that Lidstrom was pushing him and could've contributed to the kicking motion. A bit much to go on to give the Oilers a 3-3 tie. But then again, the NHL would love to see the Battle of Alberta with Edmonton versus Calgary next round. It was a horrible call by the league, and the Wings were as shocked as their fans were. With a few minutes left, all of us were thinking it would go to overtime and I was getting ready to find a snack. I even saw a commercial for Yzerman's line of furniture and got a laugh out of that. But in a shocking turn of events, Hemsky scored with 1:06 left. Lilja left him all alone on the backdoor to receive a Samsonov pass, and it was 4-3 Oilers. Lilja is the bonehead of this year's playoffs. This is when all Wings fans saw the score and looked at the clock with shock. Here the Wings were, down a goal with only a minute left. This after being up with four minutes left. Complete shock. The Wings pulled Legace and put together a desperate, but unproductive attempt at a comeback. Moreau blocked their best chance in the final seconds. Datsyuk took the faceoff with 6 seconds left and won it, but the Wings couldn't get one on net. And that was it. Oilers GM Kevin Lowe was seen consoling Yzerman, and the way Yzerman looked he is most likely done. Results The Wings' third first round playoff exit in five seasons could bring about some changes in the locker room. Manny Legace comes to mind as the most obvious scapegoat. While no one can say he played badly, he certainly didn't play well and gave the Wings no inspiration or confidence with his body language and post-game quotes throughout the series. It will be a huge offseason decision whether to retain Manny as the backup, or give Osgood that role. Both are unrestricted free agents this summer. Chris Chelios will also have to decide whether he is coming back, and all indications are that he is. The Wings will gladly re-sign him. Nicklas Lidstrom is the biggest player who is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and the Wings will give him whatever next season's cap allows the maximum salary to be. Also, Brendan Shanahan is an unrestricted free agent and could possibly retire with a front office job with the NHL guaranteed. But I expect him to be back next season. Finally, Steve Yzerman's contract is up and he will have to decide on whether he is returning. All indications are that he is not - he has been bitter and frustrated all season, and, despite his jump come playoff times, his back injury really put things back into perspective of his age and physical condition. As for coaching, Babcock signed a three year deal with the Wings last summer. By the precedent of firing Dave Lewis after his second early playoff exit, Babcock is expected to be given another chance. Ken Holland is considered a core member of the front office, but his job should be scrutinized. His signing of Derian Hatcher and Ray Whitney were predictably bad from day one, and the Curtis Joseph situation was poorly managed and an embarrassment to the organization. Just some examples of bad recent moves. Gone are the days of Holland doing blockbuster moves with unlimited resources via Ilitch, so Holland's role on the team deserves some constructive criticism - I'm not saying he's out but some Wings strategies need tuning. Quotes Manny Legace:
"I feel like going home and hanging myself. To have such a great year and then such a disappointing last two weeks. And you're out. You're golfing. It's hard to take."
Coach Babcock:
"If we had caught a couple breaks we could have been up 4-0. But coulda, shoulda, woulda. They found a way to win and we're going home. I'm shocked that we are in this situation...We're going to have to evaluate our team this summer and if we have to make changes we'll make changes. We don't want to be about winning in the regular season and not getting it done in the playoffs. It's hard to look at our team and think we wouldn't have success in the playoffs."
Steve Yzerman:
"I'm flying home tomorrow and that's about as far as I can go. I think it is best to wait a few days. Whether it is later this week or next week, I'll be ready to make a decision on my future then. It is such a fun game to play. That building tonight, the more times you are in situations like that, the more you come to enjoy it. I don't know that I'm ever not going to want to play. But I'll have a decision soon."

Watch the replay again. It wasn't a high stick, and there's no way Hemsky made a "distinct kicking motion."

It was a high stick, and it was a kicking motion. But it's not clear whether the puck actually touched the foot. It was basically a bad bounce. Either way, we can't really blame that one call for the series ended. We never should have been in that situation (game six, down a game) in the first place. And it's not like that was the game-winning goal in overtime (as was pointed out to me). The Wings still had a chance at that point. Sure, it was extremely deflating. But that's no excuse for Lilja and Williams. Either way, the series is over. We can whine and complain, but it's not going to do anything.

I'm a bigtime Wings fan but I'm not going to criticize the Hemsky goal (the first one). If that had been a Wings' goal I would have been really hot had it been overturned. I saw Hemsky get pushed and his leg may have come up but that looked to me like he was just bracing himself. Was it a high stick? Maybe. But calls get missed all the time like that.

Bottom line is Edmonton deserved to win this series. They were gritty, worked their butts off, got all the garbage goals, had solid goaltending and played every game hard. I don't like it that the Wings lost but Edmonton was a worthy victor.

They ran the replay of the Hemsky goal 150 times, from every angle but under the ice, and I never saw a kicking motion, even when Lidstrom hammered him from behind. The high stick is a different issue. I liked the comment on OLN that although the stick started out high, that perhaps the on ice opinion was that contact with the puck was made below crossbar level. Either way it was a great game. And while I'm not disappointed to see the Wings go out early, it does bring a little joy to an otherwise dismal season for this Blues fan, the game of hockey will miss Steve Yzerman if he decides to hang it up. You hate him when your team is playing the Wings and he's beating you, but he is without question, one of the most gifted to ever play the game.

If you go to NHL.com and watch the replay -- you can right click on it, blow it up and slow it down, and pause at the right times, you can see that Horcoff's stick was parallel to the ice when he made contact (well below his shoulders), and that the puck bounces in off of Hemsky's chest.

Sorry Megan, it's not even close to a high stick or a kicking motion. The stick is well below the shoulder when he touched the puck.

Yeah, on second look, the stick does look parallel. But again, as I said before, it doesn't matter. That's not the play that lost the game or the series. You have to give all the credit to the Oilers. They just wanted it more, apparently. They were ready for every game, and they pounced on the opportunities we gave them, plus making their own chances. It's a horrible way to end the Wings season. But Edmonton deserved that series a heck of a lot more than the Wings. Personally, I would like to see Edmonton at least win the conference finals, perhaps even win the Cup. Of they games I've watched outside of this series, they seem to have the most passion and drive. It's good to see from a young team like that. Also, MacTavish was phenomenal. He was apparently very effective with his team. I sort of wonder what he said to them during the second intermission.
All that being said, it looks like another small Stanley Cup Finals, as far as revenue goes. Dallas is out, Detroit is out, the "defending cup champions" are out, Toronto didn't even made the playoffs. If it ends up being Edmonton-Ottawa, well, that's good for Canada. Not many viewers south of the border, though. Maybe New Jersey could bring in some money, if they make it. Who knows.

I don't think it was a matter Mick McGeough seeing that his stick was parallel to the bar, if it in fact was. 9 nights out of 10, they would have called that a high stick just from the way it looked in real time. I don't care about what slow motion shows - refs call the game in real time and it looked high to everyone in real time. The fact was that McGeough was already looking at the goal line when the puck was shot and apparently Leggo didn't see it either.

My question to you guys is, would the goal still count if Hemsky's kicking motion kicked Legace's glove and the puck went in because of that? What I mean is he doesn't directly kick the puck but the kicking motion still causes a goal based on contact with another player carrying the puck. That would fall in with the argument that his foot didn't definitively touch the puck.

It was one of those close calls that influenced the outcome of a game. I know what it must feel like, as Edmonton had been on the short shaft of some blown calls all season. This one (two) were alot closer.

I think someone else mentioned it -- here are your culprits, Williams for the 2nd, third, and 4th crosschecks on Ryan Smyth. The 3rd and 4th two handers he took gave the PP that sparked thr run. Then Lilja for 2 missed assignments. Oiler's goals 2 and 4 were 3-on-3. Those two guys better hang themselves before Legace does.

Wow. Detroit just lost and we're playing the blame game? Who care's? The game was full of lucky bounces that happened to benefit the Oilers.

Personally, I wouldn't blame any one individual for any of the goals/games. NONE of the Wings were looking hot. I can probably go down the list and say what everyone did wrong in this series. The Red Wings just weren't in it, the Oilers can't pass so they played the clogging game and waited for lucky bounces (which the got), and the Refs don't know how to call a tight game.

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but I don't think they froze the puck before the game (hence the random bouncing) and I definetly think the ice was too hard (hence the players losing their edges so often).

P.S. Canadian commentators were doing the game on OLN-- Of course they're gonna' show you what they want to show you and tell you what they want to tell you. Who do you think they wanted to win? Take what you see/hear on TV with a grain of salt, expecially on OLN because their commentators AND cameraman work is pathetic. OLN should stick to hunting and fishing.

Such a dissapointment, in all aspects of the series. From here on out, I'm only worried about the future of the Wings. I'll leave this series way, way, way behind. I hope the Wings make some improvements by next years' playoffs, and the Stevie comes back.

I hate to visually rub in this monumental failure, but I don't think the gross underacheivement of thise Wings can be overstated. Here is a reminder of the regular season records. Particularly note 58 wins to 41. 16 regulation losses to 28. If you could the overtime losses detroit was 58-24, still AWESOME. Acounting for those in Edmonton's record, a mediocre .500, 41-41. The hockey wasn't THAT different in the playoffs folks, it's all about grit!

1 p - DETROIT* 82 58 16 8 124 305 209 27-9-5 31-7-3 8-1-1
8 x - EDMONTON 82 41 28 13 95 256 251 20-15-6 21-13-7 5-4-1

BTW...thanks for the multiple lines of Manny...classless A-hole.

I have the game on PVR. I watched the replays ad nauseum (well, at least the wife got sick of it). Anyway, I have no questions that it was a high stick, and it was definitely a kicking motion. Missed call, bad call. I was wondering if had Mr. Magoo waved the goal off, would they have overruled it?

As far as performances were concerned, team defense was missing the entire series. Lilja's lapses were not the worst, just the last. How many times was an Oiler left alone in front of the goalie? It happen two times in a row spanning two games. The Edmonton OT winner and then the first goal in game 4. Thank you Mathieu Schneider...
You're right about Manny, but for the wrong reasons. He is a backup goaltender. Always has been, always will be. It's not a bad thing. He's probably the best in the business. But he's not a starting goaltender. Admit it. We knew this before the season started, we knew it during shoot outs, and we know it now.
And one last thing. You know, if Cujo had played half as well as he was payed to play, there never would have been a "situation". The Wings would have told Dom "thanks, but no thanks".

People here don't seem to understand the rules about high sticks. The stick being higher then the crossbar only come in play if the puck goes directly from stick into the net. Otherwise a high stick is any contact with the puck above the shoulders. In slow motion contact is below the shoulders so it was fine. As for the kicking motion if there is not a good enough view to overturn the original ruling the goal stands. Bottom line one goal in a best of 7 series doesn't make the difference. The Wings should have burried the Edmonton in 5 games. Hope they pick up some heart in the offseason.

To the fellow before me, thank you for clarifying things regarding the third goal. If only someone in the mass media would make those points.

And for the Edmonton fan with the Manny spam, don't be a moron. You just make the rest of us look bad.

Well, maybe here is the last place to share post-game party videos, but I reckon many Oilers fans still visit here. No offense to Red Wings team, you have an excellent team and the record proves that.

You can find some of the videos on my blog: http://ashademan.blogspot.com

Cheers!

I'm not sure of the camera angles you were getting in the US, but to me in Vancouver, Hemskey's first goal looked like a puck off the chest that fell into the net. As for the comment that the NHL would like to see the Battle of Alberta....c'mon! Granted every Canadian fan wants to see it, but the NHL wants nothing more than to see teams like the Stars, Avs, Redwings and Rangers go as far into the playoffs as possible. Have you seen a battle of Alberta on NBC or OLN this year...me either.

As a long time hockey (Oilers) fan, my only thought is that the Oilers-Redwings series was excellent hockey and fine entertainment. Its unfortunate that someone had to lose especially a great team like the Red Wings. My compliments to Stevie Y and the Wings and my condolences to all their faithful fans.

If its any consolation, we've had a long dry spell in Edmonton while you guys were celebrating all your Stanley Cup wins... maybe its our turn?...

I'm not sure if that's fair. Doesn't CBC get first crack at anything involving Canada's 6-pack? Then TSN?

I don't know, but I always thought the reason OLN / NBC doesn't carry these BofA games was because they were unavailable, not unattractive.

Still, I agree that NBC's wishlist of finalists is getting shredded up lately.

I would kill for a dry spell like Edmonton's. I think I speak for fans of about 15-20 franchises who might remind you what a real 'dry spell' looks like.

yeah... I'm sorry. Dumb comment. My point was that the Red Wings can take consolation in their recent successes. No slight intended to all the great teams that for whatever reason haven't experienced the success they deserve. I'm thinking of specific instances of bad luck that topedoed the Sabres a few years back and the Flames last season and I know that there are many others....

Well, no matter what, wherever the blame for the Wings collapse really does lie, most of us admit and respect the effort the Oilers put into this. There were iffy calls on both sides throughout the series, but Edmonton deserved the win. As when Calgary beat them in the last go around, I hope at least that this wasn't for nothing and that Edmonton rides this series win to challenge for the Cup in the finals.

And I wanted to say thanks to Brian, Matt and Christy for the great work you did this year. I raelly enjoyed the blog, and ended up turning to it as the primary place for picking up stories. I hope you all have a great summer, and look forward to reading next year.

I can't help but think that the poster that repeatedly typed "MANNY!!!" is an Oiler fan who doesn't feel like he/she got enough taunting in during the series.

I feel bad for Manny. Not because of the taunting. Hell, it's hockey! It comes with the game (I've had my fair share of booing Pronger :) ).

He wasn't ready for the playoffs and warned everyone that he didn't feel suitable. I commend the Wings for being so supportive about Manny and trying to boost his confidence throughout the playoffs, but when a goalie says, "I can't do it," it's usually a good indication that he doesn't have the confidence to make the big saves needed for the playoffs. And now Manny is saying things like, "I feel hollow inside" and that he wanted to go home and hang himself after the game. Yikes.

I love Manny, I really do. I don't blame him for anything. The Wings just didn't work it as a team, and I refuse to blame any one individual for that. BUT, he shouldn't have been in that net. Nothing is worse than an unconfident, demoralized goalie in the playoffs.

I can guarentee that next year, Manny won't be a starter. I predict either Manny or Osgood will be let go and they will sign on a new goalie. I could be wrong, but we'll see.

P.S.: I'd also like to add that Osgood and Legace are both unsigned for next season. Anything can happen with that.

Besides the play of Zetterberg, it's hard to find many silver linings. But I have two, rookies Nick Kronwall and Brett Lebda. They were the Wings two best defensmen during the series, and both, especially Kronwall, drew high praise from both the CBC and Edmonton broadcasters.

Many people so far have said to start getting rid of players...

Why wipe out a team that was so good this year? Just because they choked in the playoffs?

Here's my thoughts. Holland has done a great job getting young players. Can you believe that Datsyuk was drafted in '98? Howabout Zetterberg in '99? Both of these players were drafted in the 6th round or higher. THE 6TH ROUND OR HIGHER! That means 150 players were picked before these two. Holland knows what he is doing with the team, the Wing's scouting is absolutely amazing. I know that any changes Holland makes will be appropriate and for the better of the team.

The Wings chemistry is something I'm sure he won't want to mess with. He will look for gritty players and others that will add physical aspects to the game in order to give the Wings that drive in the playoffs. As for Lidstrom and Lang, you are crazy (or just mentally insane) if you want to let them go after one bad playoff performance. Lidstrom is without a doubt the best PLAYER in hockey. Not Forsberg, not Thornton, not Jagr- Lidstrom (80+ points this season??? That's got Norris all over it).

So, the Wings offseason should be interesting. They'll rest a bit and come back next year with a Cup winning team with some familiar faces.

I do agree with the about post. We really only need maybe one or two enforcers on the team, and that right there would be a huge change that I think could take them all the way next year. But, still, I doubt Manny will be a starter next year, and with that they will undoubtedly get rid of Manny and/or Legace. As much as we love them both, it's inevitable.

I do have to say that I was plesantly surprise with Lang's performance in the playoffs, moreso than the regular season. He's always been fantastic at positioning himself, but they one thing that has always bothered me about him is that he just doesn't move his feet. This playoffs, however, I really think he took that up a notch. Get rid of him? Not a good idea if you want solid playoff play.

And get rid of Lidstrom? He's an incredible hockey player. No GM would be dumb enough to get rid of a player like him. The day that happens is the day that Sean Avery plays a game without getting a penalty. It'll never happen, sorry.

Get rid of Shanny? The guy's getting older, but he's still got it. He's a sniper. How many times has he scored from behind the net, now?

It was a bad playoffs for them, yeah. They do need to figure something out for next year to make it work better. And they will.

THe kick was alright but the high stick should have been wistled down right away. plus even though it hit the jersy it was off the kick so it would still be disallowed also whoever asked if somone kicked manys glove would it still count, no it shouldnt because now its a penalty (goalie inerferience, or even roughing is what i belive they can call it).Also dont expect a western confference team to win the cup. theres a 9 out of 10 chance youll see an eastern conference team win it
P.S.People here don't seem to understand the rules about high sticks. The stick being higher then the crossbar only come in play if the puck goes directly from stick into the net. Otherwise a high stick is any contact with the puck above the shoulders. In slow motion contact is below the shoulders so it was fine. As for the kicking motion if there is not a good enough view to overturn the original ruling the goal stands. Bottom line one goal in a best of 7 series doesn't make the difference. The Wings should have burried the Edmonton in 5 games. Hope they pick up some heart in the offseason....this is false, i should know im a ref, they use the crossbar because of height differences, or else someone like pronger could go almost a foot or so above the crossbar, and also if there isnt a good enough view then the goal is inconcluseive and disallowed.....but bottom line i belevie as a wings fan from michigan that edmoton still would have won it in game 7.....(go here http://www.nhl.com/rules/rule61.html and look at C.

forgot to say....when the post creator said it wasnt the game winner, take back the goal. take back the moment, which might take back the next goal leaving the wings in a 2-1 lead. Then take away the power-plays edmonton got because of the momentum. Then you have a game 7:)

hockyisawayoflife,

Should I assume that you are a poor official by the fact that you spell 'hockey' incorrectly in your username, or by the fact that you don't understand the rules of the game?

Follow your own link and note the following:

d) "Batting the puck above the normal height of the shoulders is prohibited."

The only time the height of the crossbar comes into the equation is when: "c) an apparent goal scored by an attacking player when any part of his stick makes contact with the puck above the height of the crossbar of the goal frame shall not be allowed."

Since the goal did not go in off of Horcoff's stick, it was not a high stick violation.

It is obvious that Detroit assumed they had this one in the bag as did Calgary and the Stars. In times of war never underestimate your opponent as they always have the advantage. The Oilers changed their game and Detroit didn't. It created confusion. The Sharks on the otherhand are masters of game changing and just when you have them figured out something new happens, hense the Marleau line. Detroit played a great series but they fell due to too much confidence.....NEVER ASSUME!
