Bruins - Redwings Series



Detroit leads the series 1-0 after winning an entertaining 1-0 game where both goaltenders were aggressive. GWG from Datsyuk who did what a superstar had to late in the game.

Who are you rooting against more - Boston or Detroit? If Detroit wins, that makes the Pens next round tougher. If Boston wins, it makes a potential ECF rematch much much tougher.

I am rooting against Boston as I think Pens can beat the Redwings. Crosby and Datsyuk are both great top stars for their teams with Crosby being the better player while Datsyuk a more mature leader. The supporting big stars like Malkin and Franzen are not their cup years playoff selves, but Franzen seems to have regressed more. With malkin, it's all about playoff hockey IQ or the lack of it. He and Neal need to mature and use their talent and not get distracted by the trivial stuff once they face the top teams. Zetterberg is slated to return for a possible second round. Jimmy Howard not as good as Fleury in the regular season but Fleury not as good in the postseason even if fleury is coming off a solid clutch Game 1 win where he got stronger in the 3rd period.

I will just have one thread for the entire series as our blog participation doesn't merit game by game posts.
