1.  The Curse of the Octopus!  Once again, there was an octopus tossed onto the ice before the game even began.  This time, Avalanche forward Cody McLeod picked it up.  I don't know if he was pissed off or just trying to be a dick, but he was shaking it around towards the Wings' bench like "Screw you guys" and then he threw it up towards the fans.  Too bad the jerk-off has bad aim.  The octopus hit the wall and landed in the hallway behind the Avs' bench.    Douchebag.  

Hey Bettman!  Where'e the $10K fine on that turd?!

The Avalanche proceeded to pretty much implode from that moment forward; taking stupid penalties and leaving lots of space for the Wings to skate through.  Side note: the reffing SUCKED ASS on both sides.

2.  The Wings outshot the Avs 40 - 20 and chased their goalie out of the net for a second straight game. 

3.  Johann Franzen (the Mule) scored a goal in each period (one while the Wings were short-handed), netting his first careeer Playoff hat trick!  

This was also the Wings' first Playoff hat trick since 2002, when Darren McCarty scored 3 goals in a 5 - 3 win (in the Western Conference Final) over...yep, you guessed it...the Avalanche!  *cue evil laugh*

See?!  Do not FUCK with the Octopus!

4.  Speaking of McCarty, DMac is definitely back!  During the second period, Darren dropped the gloves with Colorado's Cody McCormick at center ice, bringing the hometown crowd to their feet.

5.  Valtteri Filppula and Henrik Zetterberg scored the Detroit's other 2 goals.

6.  Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg are both finalists for the Frank J.Selke Trophy, with is given to the league's best defensive forward.  

7.  In 8 Playoff games played so far, Franzen has 10 goals and 3 assists and is leading the Wings in Playoff points.  The dude is on FIRE!
