I think the Curse of the Octopus carried over from Game 2.  *snerk*

1.  HOLY CRAP!  Between another awesome episode of Supernatural  (*smishes SamnDean*) and the Wings' utter domination of the Avalanche, I think I broke my squee. 

2.  Johann Franzen notched ANOTHER hat trick!  GO MULE!!!!!

3.  He is the first player with two hat tricks in one series since Jari Kurri did it for Edmonton against Chicago in 1985.

4.  Franzen scored 9 goals in this series (the entire Avs team had 9 goals total).  This flurry of goals breaks Gordie Howe's franchise record of 8 goals in one series (seven games), set in 1949.
        4A.  In March, his 6 game-winning goals broke the franchise record of 5 established by Howe in 1952,

5.  He has scored 11 goals in ten Playoff games so far and shows no sign of slowing down.  W00T!!!

6.  After going into the first intermission down 3 - 1, the Avs replaced Theodore with Budaj.

7.  The Wings' other 5 goals were scored by: Lidstrom,  Zetterberg (2), and Samuelsson (2, one was short-handed). 

8.  The Red Wings also swept the season series from Colorado and finished 8-0 vs. the Avalanche.

9.  The reffing continued to SUCK for both sides.

10. Wings' coach Mike Babcock is up for the Jack Adams Award, which is presented annually to the head coach who has “contributed the most to his team’s success.”
