Game 2 open thread

I'm sitting in the Toronto newsroom for tonight's matchup, but courtesy of Seth Rorabaugh, I'm also in Detroit at the game. Sort of:

Seth's live blogging the festivities from Motown, so check out Empty Netters during the game. As an early FYI, Mr. Rorabaugh, myself and hopefully The Pensblog crew will be doing a FanHouse live chat on Wednesday afternoon to set up Game 3.

Tonight, I'll be around at FanHouse as things get going.

I cannot understand why on Earth Osgood has not been seriously considered in the Conn Smythe race. What an understated contribution he makes.

Just my 2 cents ...

The repeated cheapshots to the head of Franzen by the Pengoons show their true character and their inability to handle adversity with any dignity or class.

What is the longest that a team has been shut out in the SCF James?

I have no dog in this show, but if one wants to talk about cheap shots towards Franzen, the same person should even things out and talk about the flying elbows by multiple Red Wings players and the repeated flying checks by Kronwall that, somehow, are no longer against the rules in the playoffs.

You can't really compare the two in terms of cheapness. The hits that Kronwall has made weren't elbows(from what I've seen he leads with his shoulder); many of them could be called charging and rightfully should have been but to compare a borderline hit to several players on a team punching a guy that was out an extended period of time with a concussion in the back and side of the head is insane. If you really think that they are even close to the same level of dirty play you might want to reexamine things.

I'm not a Wings or Penguins fan either, I'm a fan of the sport and wanted to watch a fun and competitive series. There is nothing wrong with being outplayed by another team but when the Bertuzzi-lite antics that the Pens performed tonight occur they do nothing but disgrace their team and the sport as a whole.

I think someone had three straight shutouts to start a series in 1945 - Frank McCool? - but don't know if it was in the finals or just in the playoffs.
