07:17 AM ET 05.07 | Because he had a clean look at the overtime game-winner Monday night, Jonas Hiller is bound to take some heat for Anaheim's Game 4 loss despite his 46-save performance. Goalie controversy? No question. Here's the controversy: Where were the rest of the Ducks to help their battered goaltender. ... "They played very good, very hard, very desperate," Coach Bruce Boudreau said of the Red Wings. "Quite frankly, we didn't have 20 players playing. I mean, we had some passengers tonight." There's only one problem with having two goalies who played equally as well and equally as often during the regular season. When the team loses a playoff game, everyone clamors for a change.

Anyone calling for Hiller's replacement needs to switch the channel to the NBA because they don't know what the hell they're talking about. Hiller was excellent last night and almost stole a game that the Wings dominated start to finish.

The biggest difference I saw on the ice last night was the Ducks forwards did not forecheck as hard, which made it much easier for the Wings to come out of their own zone.

IF, and that is a BIG IF, the Pens advance, I don't want them to face the Caps. So, the Rags need to do what they can. ;) At least bit them up a bit...jeez.

But my team has its own problems. GL.
