And gotta love how they called boarding on us but not on an exact similar play (if not worse) by SJ.
And seriously, enough with this pansy paper cut blood bullshit. These guys come back out on the ice with broken teeth and gashes around their eyes all the time, I don't think a drip of blood should guarantee 4 minutes.
I hope the Wings come back stronger from this. They scored early, but gave the second period to the Sharks. It sucks that Howard kept them in the game for so long and then gave up an easy shot, but the defense was lacking tonight. Stuart threw his stick at the boards after losing, and rightfully so, but they need to direct that into Game 2 and take back home ice advantage.
