Game 4 Recap

Johan Franzen’s huge night kept the Wings’ playoff hopes alive Thursday night, leading the Wings to a 7-1 home victory. Franzen exploded for a natural hat trick in the first period, and had the final goal of the night. Along the way, Todd Bertuzzi, Valtteri Filppula, and Brian Rafalski also scored for the Wings. Jimmy Howard picked up 28 saves to earn his fifth playoff win.

    One down, three to go. Franzen was obviously the star of the night, but the team defense was dramatically better. Defenseman limited turnovers and let the forwards and centers take care of the puck. If the Wings can keep Pavelski pointless in game five, this series will be heading back to Detroit.

    Dags att spänna musklerna och gå hela vägen.
    (Time to show some muscles and go all the way).
    Go Wings Go!

    Good try wings, may have had a chance if you had unbiased officials. The league needs to fire some guys. Trying to take a guy’s head off should have been call. They called a love tap from our guys a penalty. If they can’t get better officials then I’m done watching hockey. We would have been better off with blind Refs. They would just drop the puck on face-offs and let the guys play hockey. See you guys on the golf course and I will be honored to play in your foursome. Take care and get with the family and we will see you next season. Lidstrom, please come back next year; I don’t want to see you go out like this. You deserve a lot better than this.

      Good job this season Wings. Too bad it fell short of the “goal.” With Hudler coming back next year, and I PRAY LIDSTROM, it will be a great 2010-2011 season. I look forward to it. Coming from a guy way down here in FL, it’s always worth trying to buy a plane ticket to DTW to watch my WINGS!!!!! GO WINGS!!!!! San Jose better win the cup. They just beat the hottest team in the league.
