I was the biggest wuss. I didn't watch today's game. I just saw that the Wings lost 5-2! Ouch! Do you think it is over? Or do you think they can win game 7?

Ouch is right..but over..no, Can they win? It's a given they can, they are the wings and more of these guys have multiple cups than any other team in the league, experience almost always make the difference this time of year. Having said that our weak link is Howard, he was as bad today as he was good the other day. sticks crossed he will bounce back the way he did after last Sunday's game. Home ice is nice but not really a factor here, the wings are a good road team. They have spent this entire year coming from behind..I believe my guys will still be in it come round 2.

What's wrong with bringing in Ozzy? Is Ozzy hurt?

Ozzie is not hurt. He struggled a little in the beginning of this season and Babs acted like it was the end of the world and not the norm for the wizard of oz to do so. I guess like all the other Ozzie haters, he's never bothered to look up Ozzies actual stats and numbers. Ozzie also made a public comment in Detroit a few months ago, that he knew more about being a goalie than Babcock did, I knew then,we weren't going to see him again. Babcock is in love with Howard and he's probably going to keep using him..Howard has said that Ozzie has been great to him and works with him all the time..Oz only needs 2 or 3 more wins for 400 career wins, I hope he gets a chance to get them!! A couple of weeks ago Babcock made the remark that Howard was the best goalie we have had since he's been here..the kid has been good..but he has a long way to go before we say he's better than hasek and yes even Ozzie.

Sounds like it is Babs' pride that is what is keeping Ozzie on the bench. Osgood can go somewhere else. He has done that before.Why do I think the series would be over and the wings would be onto the next round if Ozzie was in net One or two of the games? And if they do lose this round? Then what? Babs is out?

well to start out with early in the game Detroit was given 3 straight power plays and at the end of the last one that was a 5 on 3 for over a minute they trailed 1-0 after giving up a shorthanded goal it seemed that for whatever reason with all their experience they were not ready to play today for some reason I had to leave for a little bit after the first they trailed 1-0. It got to 2-0 Phoenix in the 2nd, but Detroit got one back to make it 2-1, but then they started taking penalties and Phoenix took advantage unlike the previous games where they couldn't do anything on their power play and Detroit's goalie did not look as good as he had in the previous 2 games and they trailed 4-1 heading to the 3rd and they ended up losing 5-2 I missed the 3rd as I was watching them all wreck at the Nascar race in Talladega seeing as the game seemed to be well in hand at the time. I assumed that there was going to be a game 7 and I thought that too the other night when Pittsburgh trailed 3-0, but boy was I wrong on that one when Ottawa had a goal disallowed that would of made the score 4-1 instead of 3-1 that game the defending champs life and they took advantage with 2 to tie in the 3rd and one to win it halfway through the first overtime period and I had a feeling when that goal was disallowed that Ottawa might be in trouble and I was right about that. I will say one thing about the Phoenix and Detroit series Home ice has meant zero in this series as the road team is 4-2 so if you hold that as hope your team has a good chance of winning the last game, but anything goes when it comes to a Game 7 and I for one after Detroit won the last 2 with all of the vets on their team I never thought there would be a Game 7, but the only place they are inexperienced right now is in Goal and that is where they will need to be strong to win the last game.

wow 5-2 sounds like the kicked butt, what do you think contribute to that? Maybe that is an indication of further success?
