Actually, I wasn’t surprised at all by how the Wings played. Colorado exhausted them, and they know it. Hopefully, Game 2 will be just as exciting, but a Red Wing victory instead. Yes, I had no doubt that Carolina could come to play. These next few games, the Wings must keep the pressure on them and they’ll still be able to win the series. However, special teams will play a much more critical role since the refs will likely be calling everything under the sun. Nevertheless, this will be a tight series, even if the Wings can win in 5.
