Live blog: Red Wings fall short in Game 7


Free Press special writer Anthony Fenech is live-blogging Game 7 of the Detroit Red Wings vs. San Jose Sharks series tonight. (George Sipple originally was going to blog, but he had to work on some other stories instead.) Anthony couldn't make it to San Jose, so he'll be bringing you his thoughts off of Versus' telecast.

Feel free to discuss the game with Anthony in the chat below. For those of you on our mobile site, we will post periodic game updates below the chat. Enjoy this improbable Game 7, everyone!
