I've been reading just about all the articles I can find regarding tonight's Game 7 between the Sharks and the Wings and I'm seeing a pattern here that makes me wonder.

Most every article mentions how the odds are very long indeed against the Red Wings mounting this historic comeback and winning tonight.

To me, that mountian has already been climbed. Detroit already surpassed the near impossible odds by just GETTING to this Game 7. The players obviously are throwing every cliche the can get at the media, but it's true in this case. It's only one game. Take a look at the statistics for winners of Game 7. Just Game 7's, mind you. Maybe even look at the road team, what are the odds? Right around 50/50, right? Or even 40/60.

So these are not "nearly impossible odds" or a "mountainous task." It's a coin flip...even more so in this series, with all the games hinging upon who tallies that one extra goal. Nevermind Helm's empty-netter on Tuesday.

This is one game for all the marbles. Two teams, one winner.

Eight and a half hours until puck drop.... Tic..............................Tock..............................
