When Marty Turco assisted on Joel Lundqvist's goal at the 6:04 mark of the 2nd period, I don't think anyone watching the game thought, "That's it. There will be no more scoring this game," but that's exactly what happened.
The Dallas Stars came into Detroit and shut down the Red Wings with great goaltending by Marty Turco and not allowing Detroit second chance opportunities. I know I have said previously that it's just a matter of cleaning it up for Detroit, but I'll be more than happy to eat all of my words if Dallas can do the impossible! (are you listening Philly?)
Is it possible that I hear a slight choking sound coming from the collective throats of the Red Wings - or is it just a mere bump in the road? If I'm a Red Wing player or fan, I'd be really worried.
Some other observations I have from this series: What about Kris Draper's "Crosscheck" to the head of Brendan Morrow, did you see that NHL? Or is it a mirage? And one last thing, I love the fact that a 46 year old Chris Chelios is getting a lot of props for playing at his age (it is amazing), but to me he's showing his age. He's a little off-balance, slow, and downright clumsy looking! Well, that's it for now. Over and out!
