Red Wings vs. Sharks 2011 Series

I know I never talk about hockey. Frankly, I rarely watch it so there is no reason for me to do so. It's not that I don't enjoy it, but it just isn't a high priority in my sports viewing. Especially the time of year it is on. It runs during the NBA, NFL playoffs, and into the MLB season. Their playoffs coincide with the NBA as well. I can't keep up with this much crap!

I'm always a homer through and through so I support the Red Wings regardless. I try to catch a game here and there, but at least watch most of the playoffs only to see them have some issue such as the best goalie int eh playoffs knock them off, not being able to buy a goal with out-shooting the other team 2 to 1, or just plain a barrage of injuries. This year was no different.

This series though is worth talking about. The Wings were down 0-3 in this series and forced a game 7. I don't want to go into great detail on it, but I still wanted to mention that I was proud of the team for how hard they played all the way to the end. That 7th game was real tough loss too since they lost half their forwards in the game and I think only had 19 guys active by the time the game was over. That's when inetsoft performance management software comes in handy I guess.
