MUST SEE! Red Wings’ Anthony Mantha lays huge hit [VIDEO]

Detroit Red Wings young gun Anthony Mantha has been touted as one of the next big power forwards in the league. His play so far this season hasn’t relayed as much, but he’s shown flashes of it tonight. That includes his huge hit on Carolina Hurricanes’ forward Jordan Martinook.

With an unimpressive night thus far against the Hurricanes, Mantha used his size to his advantage. With Martinook coming up the wing with the puck, Mantha shadowed him into the zone, and when the time was right, laid on a huge hip-check.

If Mantha has any hope of being a power forward for the Red Wings, these are the kinds of plays he needs to make. Finish your checks, crash the net, make the shot. That’s the only way you’ll survive in today’s NHL.

Chauncey Billups reveals what REALLY happened in 2005 finals

It’s a moment any Detroit Pistons fan of the 90’s – 00’s will remember vividly. One of the heart-thumping moments that makes playoff basketball fans into fans for life. Unfortunately, the Pistons ended up on the wrong side of that moment; the time that, according to Chauncey Billups, coach Larry Brown choked away Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

June 19, 2005. 9.4 seconds left in overtime, and the Pistons are up 95-93 over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. It looks like an inevitable 3-2 game lead for the Pistons. But then, Spurs’ Robert Horry sinks a 3-pointer after being left uncovered. Spurs win 96-95, going into a Game 6 up three games to two. They would ultimately win the series in seven games. Billups calls that loss the darkest day of his career, and he has some insight on who’s to blame for it.
