Bizzaro World in the West

Pavel Datsyuk? Mr. Skate Away himself, Throwin dukes? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Well if you didn't stay up til the end of the Wings/Ducks game 6 tilt last night (no one did) you missed a helluva show.



Look who's out there for the Wings: Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Hossa, Rafalski, and Lidstrom, and not just a fight, but 2 fights manage to break out?!? Not to mention the fact that Getzlaf was itchin' to pound some faces (lookin' at you Hossa) while Lidstrom and Hossa were trying to save, literally, Datsyuk's face.

Now this isn't altogether surprising, it is the Ducks mind you. But I do want to point this out: Getzlaf totally started it. A 6'3" Corey Perry went after 5'10" old man Brian Rafalski. Niedermeyer and Datsyuk? That was just humorous, but I think that just goes to show how playoff emotion can turn even the most noble of citizens into Philadelphia Flyers for a night. Zing.

Guess you have to give kudos to the Wings for protecting themselves, but also for showing that they are definitely rattled heading into game 7.

What makes you think that the Wings are rattled? Getting jumped by a bunch of goons? Throw McCarty, Downey and Ericsson on the ice and it's an entirely different "finale."

Game 7 is tomorrow, and here's hoping the Ducks bring the same mindset they had at the end of game 6. They'll get. . .what's that e-tard term? Oh yeah, that's right.

Owned.

If Datsyuk wasn't rattled, why would he have flipped shit?

You can't tell me that they weren't frustrated.
