YouTube Save for Game 1, the Red Wings have mostly had their way with the Blackhawks through the first four games of this Western Conference semifinals series.  In Game 4, Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson wanted to drive that point home to Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell.

He looked like a drunk fool leaving the bar at 2AM.   Hopefully somebody drove him home.
