The Detroit Red Wings win game one against Phoenix 4-2.
It was a strange game. Phoenix went 0-6 (I think) on the power play. That was really fortunate for Detroit. The Red Wings should have been down 3-0 in the first, if only the Coyotes could put something together on the man advantage.
Pavel Datsyuk took control in the second, as I expected he would. The team rallied behind him and in front of Jimmy Howard, and that was that.
I expect more of the same in game two.
Yesterday, my friend changed his Facebook profile picture to one of Gordie Howe -- a very old-school shot of Gordie on the ice in like the 60s.
It dawned on me -- not for the first time -- that I have very dedicated Red Wings fans for friends, and that made me very happy.
