Thoughts on Game 57 (3-2 overtime loss in Toronto)
-- Dominik Hasek looked bad on all three goals. Darcy Tucker's first-period goal did deflect off Nicklas Lidstrom, but the deflection happened very very far out. Hasek had more than enough time to react. In addition, he was caught leaving the near post early, cheating.
On the second goal, Mats Sundin was just trying to center a pass, but Hasek stuck his leg out to redirect the puck into his own net.
On the overtime winner, Hasek overplayed a non-shot, winding up on his back for seconds. When he got up, he didn't have his stick and was scored on shortly thereafter.
-- Jiri Hudler was a healthy scratch. He didn't sit out because of any injury. Coach Mike Babcock was sending a message that one point in 10 games isn't acceptable.
-- The Wings' top line of Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Holmstrom didn't have a strong outing.
-- Aaron Downey looked very good in his limited time (6:47), frequently going out of his way to jostle Tucker.
