Ducks Lay an Egg!

1) With all due respect and credit to the RedWings who played a text book playoff game last night, the Ducks just seemed to never get it into gear. What has to be most distressing to them, their fans and coaching staff was the relatively meek manner in which they lost last night.
2) There was no fire displayed. Now, we're not talking about the nonsense that Calgary pulled against Detroit when they were losing late in a game; Pulling Kiprusoff in order to use McClennan to hack at Red Wing players, but the usually feisty Ducks appeared meek as they went down to defeat. Definitely NOT what we would have expected from the team that led the NHL in fighting majors.
3) The Pronger(NOT Neidermayer) hit from behind on Holmstren not withstanding, the Ducks allowed the RedWings to win last night without having to pay for it. The old Detroit defense came away without having to sustain few, if any bone crunching/jarring hits. Once the game was out of reach in the 3rd we would have expected a much more of a statement than what transpired.
4) Carlyle has to be more than a little concerned, about not only the loss, but as important, HOW they lost. There still is plenty of time to turn the tide, but the Ducks are now in a 'must win' position, and we feel the best way to get back in this is to play the manner in which they succeeded all year; tough in your face/no prisoners hockey with a high degree of intensity. Otherwise the Ducks will go out quietly and we'll get ready for a RedWing-Ottawa Finals.

Hey faux, you can say what ya want about the Ducks but last night it was all about Hasek out playing Guigere. He might be older, but he's also better than J.S.G. so far and I think thats the real reason the wings are up 2-1

Faux you mentioned it but didn't talk much about the dirty hit by Pronger. On my blog I said he should be suspended for the cheap shot on Tomas Holmstrom, though i doubt it will happen.

Good to see that Vlad is still all about the goalies... He is right on this one, though... Hasek has been much better than JSG...

Hey Faux, who exactly is HOLMSTREN??? He is getting picked on in this series, just as Steve Nash is by the the San Antonio Spurs... "Holmstrom" was even headlocked by the linesman last night...

1) The typo aside, Tomas really had some night. One has to wonder if the Duck had it as strategy to go after the big Swede.
2) Yes, the linesman tackle attempt was a bit bizarre. Hew should have received 2 for holding! LOL
3) The NHL finally got one right when they suspended Pronger for his viscous hit. One game is about right. One game this time of year is equivalent to at least 10 during the regular season. Will be interesting to see how the Duck adapt to this lineup change
