The Empire Strikes Out
You wonder if one of those early-game shots off the post and crossbar would've gone in and given Dallas a 1-0 lead, if things would've been different. In the end, probably not. Detroit is good enough that you can think you're playing them even or even have a little momentum, and next thing you know, the Wings put together a bang-bang play and you're behind. Hats off to Datsyuk ... and either Wednesday night will bring a consolation prize for Dallas (perhaps with the return of Boucher?), or give the Franchise the chance to see his heroes hoist the Campbell Trophy. DudeSpin will be there ... whether you want them to be or not!
