The Media In Hockeytown Are Worried About The Stars

The Stars have won two games and now the peeps in Detroit are worried about a choke job.

Read this one in the Free Press.

Steve Schrader wonders if the Wings lost their mojo.  He writes:  “It’s not like Wings fans haven’t been burned before.

So, we’re not saying any of this is going to happen in tonight’s Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in Dallas, we’re just saying, what if …

… the Wings lost their mojo?

… Marty Turco comes up with another really good game?

… Chris Osgood has a bad game, something he hasn’t done yet? Would the Wings be tempted … nah, they couldn’t go back to Dominik Hasek now.

… the Stars are all confident and full of themselves after Saturday’s big win at the Joe?

… Brett Hull has been right all along, and he really is a hockey genius?”

Ace Free Press columnist Mitch Albom is sweating too.

Add Bob Wojnowski of the Detroit News to the list of chicken littles.

It would be fun if the Stars forced game seven.  Game six is tonight in Dallas.

They Don’t Think Much of Turco In Hockeytown, USA

Steve Scharder of the Detroit Free Press doesn’t think much of Stars goalie, Marty Turco.  He wrote the following on May 4th.  He wondered which team the Wings wanted to face, the Stars or Sharks. 

• Goalies. Always start with the goalies.

The Stars have Marty Turco, a Michigan Man who has never beaten the Wings at the Joe. Overall, he’s 2-10-5 against them. And he often doesn’t save his best stuff for the playoffs.
