Wow, what a game.

TSN had the game on up here and call me one J.S. Giguere convert. He was unbelievable. 63 saves, including a rather impressive 36 in the three overtimes.

Go Ducks go!!!

Giguere played for the major junior team here. He's fantastic.

The Ducks have hit on the only way I can think of to beat Detroit: try your best to tire the old guys out.

Of course, you need an absurdly hot goaltender and lots of young legs to even have a chance at that, but Anaheim might just have both.

Really, when Detroit's firing on all cylinders only Colorado really has a team that can hang with them all over the ice.

And lets not forget Detroit vs. Vancouver last year in the first round...

Maybe Colorado, Detroit and Dallas will all get upset this year. That would be awesome.

2-0! Oh baby!

QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK QUACK!

This is great and Giguere won't allow a 100 footer like Cloutier.

I hope the ducks break out a Flying V in game three.

It's all about to fall apart for Anaheim. They've been outplayed in both games and Giguerre's heat is starting to fade. Luck can only get you so far, and Anaheim has had A WHOLE FUCKING LOT of luck. Much like last year, something is going to go horribly wrong and Anaheim will crumble. There is no way, NO WAY, that Detroit is going to lose game 3. Watch the series turn around after that.

I am a big Ducks fan (huge Kariya mark) and I hope they can continue this, but logic tells me they cannot win eventually.
Then again, logic told me they would be swept.
J.S. is a great goalie, something he proved this season. Ducks have great defense, something they proved this season and finally they aren't just Paul and some guys.
They have several threats and most of those are guys that can shine in the play-offs.

Perhaps the Wings will fire back, but the Ducks have the momentum, the crowd and the cards now to upset Detroit.
Hey, everybody figured they would be swept so they already beat the odds, and might as well beat them completely! :)

Kariya has a goal, Oates has a goal...that's about it. Kariya, Oates AND Sykora need to get going in Game 3 or the Wings will definitely win. The Duck PP has to score a goal as well, Ozolinsh has looked really flat. Ruchin has been shutting Federov down extremely, but Shanahan, Hull, Yzerman and all the Wings are going to pick it up for Games 3-7 and the Ducks are in deep trouble if they don't match the intensity.

The Red Wings have been receiving too many good chances and now the Mighty Ducks need to win a game for Giguere rather than having Giguere win it for the team.

This is the one series that is drawing non Anaheim/Detroit fans, simply because it's such an amazing turn of events and because it's featuring some damn good hockey.

Big props to N.J. for dragging the Bruins down to a 3-0 deficit.


Now, as the final buzzer goes off and the Ducks take a 3-0 series lead over Detroit, select Red Wings fans begin to contemplate their suicide notes.

Well, Detroit is screwed.

This is the biggest win for the Ducks since Gordon Bombay led Charlie, Fulton and Goldberg over the Hawks. Buncha cake-eaters.

Ugh. The problem for the Red Wings right now is that they're not making the big plays they would normally make. Shanahan didn't get the shot he wanted on the breakaway, Hull screwed up like 4 times. Fedorov missed a one-timer. Datsyuk missed a gimme. Nothing is going right for the Wings. Combine that with Anaheim's STUPID LUCK, and of course they're down 0-3. To Anaheim's credit, they won a ton of faceoffs, which really killed the Wings, and they played good defense for most of the game.

If the Wings are going to stand any chance, then Fedorov, Lidstom, Hull, Shanahan, and Yzerman have got to start making plays. If any team can do it, it's the Red Wings, but the odds aren't exactly in their favor.

In Cujo's defense, it's not his job to score goals.

No, but he's allowing more goals on fewer shots than the goalie at the other end of the ice. Ergo, he is being outplayed. Badly.

(I know it's not so cut and dried as that, but if Detroit is eliminated in the first round CuJo's going to hear plenty about it)

A buddy asked me before the playoffs who I liked this year. I had watched Detroit dominate Ottawa the night before and I couldn't see any team except Colorado beating them. I said as much at the time; I hope he didn't pick his hockey pool based on what I said...

Detroit is playing like a team that doesn't have confidence in their goaltender; this time last year they knew they had Hasek behind them and that Vancouver's luck would run out. This year they're not playing with that same kind of quiet confidence; and it's showing on the scoreboard.

CuJo can't be blamed for the lack of scoring help...
You can't expect him to win 2 1-0 shutouts, which is what he would've needed to do...


This is a similar situation to Cechmanek last year when the Flyers lost to Ottawa. He only let in 11 goals in 5 games, while the Flyers only scored 2.


The teams confidence problems should not be with Cujo, they are more related to the fact that they can't beat J.S. at all!!!

I saw an interview with a pissed off Yzerman, where he basically slammed the press and told them not to blame Cujo. He said it was all the teams fault, and is perfectly happy with how well Cujo is playing.

Fuck Luck.
Luck is with those that play better.
Ducks win face offs, screw with the minds of Detroit, make them niss those shots and force shots that bounce on the goal...

It don't matter now, they swept the Wings!! Muahahahhaha!
Err...did they ever even win four games against the Wings in their existence? *grin*

Bring on Dallas or Colorado! :)
