Niedermayer........ NOT.... Dead!

1) With all due reverence/respect for Animal House and John Blutarsky and his 0.0 grade point average, the Anaheim Ducks' Niedermayer or more correctly Niedermayer(s) are definitely NOT dead! With Scott's dart into the shelf over the Dominators shoulder last night the Ducks avoided having to go home down 2 games. Scott is showing everyone why he is a Norris finalist. He was all over the ice in game 2. Controlling the pace/the game at both ends of the rink.
2) If the Ducks had lost we don't feel they would have been in quite the precarious position the Sabres find themselves right now in the East. Though they would have likewise been down 2 games to love, they are now going home AND they have played the Wings pretty evenly thus far. Meanwhile the Sabres have not looked too good losing 2 home games to the Senators and now must go to Kanata to try to turn the series around/save their promising season.
3) As mentioned in our previous post, we have NO rooting interest in any NHL team. Thus we ultimately don't care who wins , BUT care how a team wins. We want tough, hard fought series, with as much intensity(fighting included!) as is possible. Sweeps/short series seldomly proved much of that. So far the West has not disappointed. here's hoping the men from Buffalo make a series out of things tonight!

It's a sin to even comment on this series without giving a mention to Ryan Getzlaf. The guy is playing like a beast with skill. And the Ducks as a team have shown a consistent and unified effort. Swap Hasak for Giguere and the Ducks lead this series 2 zip, winning each game by at least 2. The only chance the Wings have of winning this series is if their PP continues to play at the level shown thus far.

1) Yes Getzlaf and the other Duck forwards are skilled AND Big/tough! Can NOT be fun to play against!
2) Can't see the Wings being able to stay with them. They are going to get worn down. The OT really showed Detroit's age

Thanks 'antz'. Just be sure not to remind anyone that I picked the Sabres to beat the Sens in 6.

Sauce, I am unaware of such a "silly" prediction... LOL - I had Buffalo is 6 also...
