As it turns out, Detroit didn't actually need a goaltender for Game 7, as Colorado decided as a team to just not show up.

Shitty. This game could have been a classic for the ages. Now it's going to be the punchline to a whole lot of jokes.

Has Roy packed it in or what?? I feel bad for everyone on the AV's, minus their head coach. Truly a sorry thing to watch unless your'e a winged wheel fan.

Only two more periods to go. That Laker/Kings game is looking a lot more interesting after watching one period of this.

BRUTAL. I can't believe how one-sided this game is. What the hell happened to Colorado?

Is that really Patrick Roy under the mask? I think they took him out and replaced him with an evil clone. C'mon. What else can explain this shit?

-Jag

/edit And now after 6 goals in 16 shots, Roy is gone. Maybe the real Roy is now in goal, so as to fool those horrible Red Wings? Or maybe this is the worst conference playoff ever?

It's not Colorado, it's Roy. He's been shaky all series long, more so than he typically is and it's because of Hasek. *Olympic flashbacks* Roy has had the luxury of playing w/ guys like Forsberg and Sakic, LeClair, Carbonneau and Damphouse, Desjardins, Muller and others while Hasek hadn't had anybody even close to that caliber of team mates until this year.

We may be seeing Roy's final hurrah's. Many times though, we don't realize it until years later. Ie; Moog, Fuhr.
Roy will bounce back though. *Statue of Liberty pose*

I am stunned at the outcome. This game should have been a classic.

I have to totally disagree that this game was Roy's fault, as except for Federov's goal, the rest of the first six came off total defensive breakdowns on Colorado's part. And Roy as a career ``shaky'' goaltender? Why don't you insult not only him, but every other goalie in the league who has stats that pale next to his?

Detroit showed up to play tonight and Colorado didn't; it's as simple as that. I'm pissed. I wanted a war.

Hopefully Carolina will be able to take it to Detroit.

Well, in hindsight, I'd have preferred a better game.

But, I don't care. I'm a Wings fan.

In retrospect, I'm a little sad there were no bench-clearing brawls.

I still cannot help but shake my head over that huge gaffe Roy made in Game 6. That was the turning point of this series.

Well earned, Detroit. I hope the final is a good series.

I might get flamed but Hasek = overrated. He's got a gold medal...that's it. He lost to Ed Belfour in the Finals once already. I'm so pulling for that hockey hotbed Carolina to pull this out

i think carolina will be very similar to the canucks, only a little bit better and more playoff experience.
i hope irbe gets torched...if only claude lemieux was on the hurricanes so i could find some way to hate them.
