That was scary. (Who else out there literally gets angry at the television when this team is down anymore? I've started going into every game expecting the lead, expecting the win. It's nerve-wracking and awesome and exciting and it says a lot about what a joy the Red Wings are this season.)
But like I said, that was scary. Lackluster first and second, worrisome effort overall despite Dominik Hasek making several brilliant saves on Marian Gaborik (none of which threaten to send him flying this time), and the Wild were up 2-1 with mere minutes to go, but just as you think it's over, Mr. Clutch pulls through.
Thanks, Dan Cleary. (And thanks, sound guys at the Joe.)

(Following tonight's game, Wild fan Kirsten is divorcing Brett Lebda after OT game winner - she even devoted a post to him with some beautiful artwork and notes on the game as well.)
