No one here probably cares, but I'm excited and the Wings board is bogged down and moving really slow. So I'm spreading the joy here on VB. We need a sports forum, I think.

Really good series.



I was glad to see Zetterberg get the Conn Smythe, he really deserved it. He was the best player on the ice tonight by far.

He was. He's become my favorite player, I love players that are that offensively talented and battle that hard on both ends of the ice. Reminds me a bit of your old Captain Wonder, Stevie Y.



Plus, he's a Swede and I always root for my ancestral homeland.

Yep. Everyone always loves the goal scores but you don't win many games without defense. He's a great two-way player. I'm just glad there's no game 7. My nerves are shot.

I'll bet! You deserved not to have to suffer through a Game 7 after the nightmare in Game 5!

boourns is all i can say. boourns.



the cup lost by Fleury's ass

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

I watched my first Hockey game on tv a few nights ago (Red Rings v Penguins). Pretty cool... I've never been a sports fan though. It's the only sport my bf really watches.

You should let him take you to a game, hockey is by far the best sport to see in person. You'll get a new respect for the game seeing it that way.

My old coworker LOVED going and seeing the Ducks. I'll call her and maybe we can go with her and her son.



My bfs brother was actually in one of the Mighty Ducks movies

I told my friend last night that makes up for the game 5 goal that Kronner put into his own net. I did feel just a bit bad for MAF afterwards. He played out of his mind in game 5 or this series would have ended then. But I didn't feel too bad. He's young. He'll get another shot at it.

I'm not a big hockey fan, but my older brother had the game on. Congrats to the Red Wings and their fans.

oh yeah don't get me wrong, Fleury was incredible in game 5. that overtime just about gave me cardiac arrest. talk about nerve wracking.

i just can't believe that they might have won if not for his bum lol

I'm a huge hockey fan. My team is the Stars, so I usually would rather see anyone win but the RedThings. But I gotta give props. It was a great series. Have fun with that cup, cause next year it'll be in Dallas!
