Not the refs fault thats for sure. You can blame the Wings for allowing Edmonton to waltz on in with the puck with a minute left to go in the game? Hemsky was all alone in front for Christs sake. Edmonton played a hell of a series. All the intangibles were on their side. They were blocking shots and they were really physical on the offense of the Red Wings.
Sorry, I really can’t agree with the majority of the Wingnuts. I may be a Wings fan, but I am a realist. Its tough for Wings fans to swallow now, but in about 4 months, you look back on it and you will see the Wings had no business winning this series they way they played. Edmonton worked their asses off and they deserved the series win.
The miscues were horrible. Look at Pisiani who scored 2 goals. Look at the defensive breakdown where they let a forward just skate into the zone untouched past 4 guys! Incredible. Hemsky was wide open on that last goal for crying out loud! Very sad.
Nice job Oilers, great series. I just wish the Wings would have put up a little more of a desperation fight.
