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 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.

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.
Marge: Mr. Scorpio, this house is almost too good for us. I keep expecting to get the bums rush. Scorpio: We don't have bums in our town, Marge, and if we did, they wouldn't rush, they'd be allowed to go at their own pace.
