What a bummer. Lilja scores the only Red Wing goal, then turns it over in OT for the loss. Talk about your highs and lows. The Ducks were the more aggressive team most of the game, and their hard work paid off. Damn.

Anybody get the sense that the Ducks' OT goal in game two pretty much decided the series right there? I curse you, mkn. May you lose tremendously in any confidence pool for the next 1,000 years. The Wings are still probing their adversary for weaknesses. They will split the series in Anaheim, regain home ice and win the series in six.

'Dear Mr. Dork ...'

I love reading stories about the interaction between the heckler and the player. It brings a certain down-to-earth feel to the game. Kudos to Wells, and kudos to Raycher for working his craft.

Ryan Glasper Sacked by Tom O'Brien

"Looking back I think he already knew he was going somewhere else," Glasper says. That says a lot about O'Brien's integrity. A coach willing to risk a players' health for his own personal gain is selfish. I would have liked to hear O'Brien's side of this story, just to get both sides. Right now I just think he's a dick.

Tony Stewart Likens NASCAR to Pro Wrestling

I'm sure Stewart is going to get a bunch of heat from this comment, but at least he had the balls to say it. Or rather, the temperament to. Usually they'll show the "debris" on the track when there is a caution flag, but I remember one incident last week when the tv cameras couldn't spot anything. I'm not a fan of the caution flag, because it can determine the ultimate outcome of a race. When there is "debris" on the track, make sure it's actual "debris" and not a little chunk of rubber.

NHL Coaches On The Hot Seat (Maybe...)

There are a couple of coaches on this list that really jump out at me. Being a Wings fan (really?) and seeing Babcocks name kinda dumbfounded me. I think that he has done a pretty good job keeping this team clicking. Dave Lewis, who is currently floundering in Boston, didn't seem to make a mark when he coached the Wings. He was more of a maintenance man than a coach. I honestly do not think that Lewis is head coach material. John Tortorella, on the other hand, is a good coach. I just think that he has worn out his welcome in Tampa Bay. I think that the players are starting to tune him out. Seeing Gretzky's name on this list tugged at my heart strings. I really wished that he would have stayed in the shadows and not coach. He knows this game inside and out, but I think that he's having a hard time translating his knowledge to his players.

I would pick a fight with an NFL player before a NHL player. Especially one of the enforcers. I wouldn't either. I suck at skating.

Cheap shot, for sure. I'm all for laying the body, but don't try to cripple the guy. As far as the fight, awesome. Sorry, Drood, but that's old-time hockey. Peters missed the Gordie Howe Hat Trick by an assist. Emery's smirk was sweet, by the way. This reminds me of the old Wings-Avs fights of last decade.

"Geez, you mean I'm supposed to feed them, too?"

My dogs are like family to me. I work a lot, so I feel better when they're home with my wife and kids. I know that they would protect my kids with their life. Plus, they're also great foot warmers when I'm sleeping. They never get mad at me, and think that I'm the greatest guy in the whole wide world. I love 'em. Laugh at me all you want, but I love 'em. Anyone who doesn't want to take responsibility enough to make sure their animal is fed and watered for months at a time is a son-of-a-bitch in my book. According to records obtained by KCRA 3 Investigates from Placer County Animal Control, Artest has repeatedly left his dogs unattended with no food for weeks at a time. If you can't take care of your dogs, give them to someone who will. The guy's an ass as far as I'm concerned.

Sticking it to Sidney

Much of the discussion in the aftermath seems to be centering around why the Penguins haven't picked up a thug of their own to protect their kids. That's the problem with some of these players today. If they can't compete on the stars' level, then they start beating on him. I love a good fight, but not the cheap shots like the spearing and knee-on-knee hits that can really mess a player up. I can think of a couple of teams in the league (cough cough, Red Wings) that could use an enforcer on their team. But like you say, fraze, today's game doesn't favor those kind of players. It sucks, but they're a dying breed. There aren't too many Shanahan's and Iginla's left out there that can both score and fight. Awesome article, fraze.
