Morning Mashup: Fear The Fin


Since there were no games on tap last night, today’s Mashup will be condensed as the Red Wings and Sharks prepare to do battle in Game 7. All the talk leading into the game is revolving around the Sharks top six up front and whether they can get the job done, which is something that have struggled with in years past. If you ask me, the Wings have all the momentum and shouldn’t have any problem putting away the Sharks. They have come up large in two straight games to tie the series, and there is no reason why they can’t do it again.
