Key Players of the Game

Darren Helm scored the insurance goal against the Oilers and his speed made him look dangerous the entire night. With injuries to other centers, Helm will be counted on to not only continue to be dangerous, but to finish plays a little more often.

We think Helmer is a hard guy to match up against because he works so hard and competes so hard and he’s on the puck. If he can get to be a guy who slows it down a little bit in his mind, so that he can execute like he did the last game, like he’s done for the last while, that’s positive for us. We know he can be a great fourth-line center who can win a (Stanley) Cup. He’s done that.

Normally what happens is you get that (role) early in your career, and you got to be happy to do it for 20 years. And if you do that you usually play on good teams. And when you’re not happy with it, you usually play on a bad team. We’re optimistic he can get better and has taken steps, but we’re also very happy with what he does.

..and now for the real challenge. I love these wing/canuck games. Awesome to watch and I sincerely wish to see that as a western final.

Such a brutal hit by Kostopoulos. About as unnecessary as it comes. And he gets 2 minutes? What a load of crap. He'll probably get a suspension, but that doesn't make up for the fact that the Wings are going to be without Stuart for an extended period of time.
