- Antti Niemi's save off of Jonathan Ericsson was as great a save as you will ever see.
- How about some love at the opposite end of the ice. Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard made many big saves, facing 42 shots.
- Outside of Sidney Crosby (pre-concussion, anyways) is there a better player in the world right now than Pavel Datsyuk? I don't think so.
- This isn't exactly a newsflash, but I think it every time he hits somebody with that patented pinch: Niklas Kronwall is the most devastating hitter in the league right now.
- Detroit showed a lot of heart in not only staving off elimination for a 2nd consecutive game, but to come from a 3-1 deficit after 2 periods in order to do so.
- Are the seeds of doubt creeping into San Jose's camp? Not yet. But if they lose game 6 . . .
