Or did you all die of shock?

I didn't see THAT coming.

    I didn't see THAT coming.

I dunno, it's all or nothing with those guys. Four first round exits surrounding a Cup win. They really should be ashamed of that third period though.

What I find fascinating is that if the Ducks win game 7, the top four seeds in the west will all be eliminated.

I am just glad that the Red Wings took the "Spotlight of Shame" off of my Rangers.

I'm a Wings fan, and I'll be the first to admit they played like crap.

I'll also say that NEITHER team was helped by officiating. There were horrible, awful calls against Detroit the whole series. But there were just as many against the Oilers.

Don't get me started on the Oilers' third goal in Game 7, though. First the guy knocks the puck down with a high stick that isn't called, then it appears to have been kicked in?

Gimme a break.

But still, the way the Red Wings played, with the exception of Henrik Zetterberg, they didn't deserve to win.

My former Blockbuster co-worker Scott (the world's biggest Red Wings fan) won't be pleased. Thankfully he's my former co-worker, and he's still in Indiana for all I know, so I don't have to stand there and listen to him complain about it.

Oh, I'm sorry. I was busy jumping on the Tiger's bandwagon.

Kidding aside, I become quite a hockey recluse after a stunning Wing's exit from the playoffs. I get so involved that I just shunt it out for about two weeks afterwards (usually).

I agree that the Wings probably were going to lose anyway (they didn't seem to want it as much as the Oilers), but I hate when games hang on the officiating. But, like the old football saying, it shouldn't have came to that anyway. Another saying also applies: in a seven game series, you'll always find the better team.

Im disappointd, but can't say surprised.

On the bright side, Chelios did not get a cup on the way out and that makes me happy.
