Now that games 3 and 4 are in the books here are my thoughts...
This is how it was supposed to happen. Remember people that this is why there is a 2-2-1-1-1 format in the playoffs. You are supposed to maintain home ice advantage. Teams are supposed to win on their home ice.
The Penguins played very well in 3 & 4 and the Red Wings did not play well enough. The Pens got the breaks they were dying for and the break well dried up for the wings. In game 3 i think it was as simple as MAF outplayed Ozzie. In game 4 the Red Wings forgot how to backcheck and play properly positioned defense for a 6 minute span.
The series shifts back to the Joe tomorrow night. Pav will be in the lineup finally. Hopefully this will light a fire under the wings butts and they can get it done.
Go Red Wings
