tough game to lose - that slash by Gelinas doesn't get called in Raliegh - both shots were to Irbe's glove side - didn't see the 1st Wings goal so I don't know where that one went - Game 3 will be fun

Another awesome game. It is great seeing Carolina play to the level of Detroit.

It was a tough game for Carolina to lose but it looks like Detroit scouted Irbe and used that information late in the game.

Watching Draper rush down the wing I could see an acre of net to the right. I don't know whether Irbe was feeding him the glove side and figuring his hand was fast enough or what, but didn't Draper just smoke that puck by him...

Lots of talk from analysts about Carolina playing for overtime. If indeed that is what they were doing they'd best not try it again, because Detroit will slaughter them (and it won't take until the third period to do it, either).

I don't think Carolina was playing for overtime, I think they were just playing their game. The play heavy defense, and keep it a low scoring game, so that when they can get the opportunity, they can make those shots that give them goals. Detroit finally made a shot get through, and that wouldn't have been a problem, but unfortunately everyone was caught looking as that second goal soared in. It's a shame, but we managed to beat Hasek, and we've beat the Wings on their home ice. We know it can be done, so now we just need to play our best at home. This series is far from over.

    that slash by Gelinas doesn't get called in Raliegh

as you know, the refs have been calling just about everything, so i don't think home ice would have made a difference on that call. carolina's had the only 5-on-3 pp so far and they're on the road.
while i'm happy the wings won, it doesn't seem right that a lot of the game isn't being played 5-on-5. sure, pp and sh units are an important part of the game, but i'd like to see a bit more of the old 5-on-5.

Here's an interesting article on ESPN. It says Carolina lost their composure and weren't focused which allowed those two goals to be scored. I hope the Canes keep it together in the future.
