Dang, what a relief?

Hey guys.

I'm a big fan of Clayton Kershaw and his team.
He won the game against Atlanta Braves with 12 strike outs,
which was amazing as always.
Shortly after the battle, his wife wrote on her SNS,

"Dang, he is not messing around with this playoff stuff.
Thank godness now I finally can breathe. "

She must've been so nervous as her husband, I guess.

What caught my eyes was the expression 'Dang.'

As far as I know, dang is an indirect way of saying 'Damn'.
I mean, usually, 'damn' is followed by negative stuffs
such as ' Damn, I failed it. Damn, we lost the game', right?

The pitcher's wife, however, used 'dang' with the positive fact
- winning the game.

Was if perfectly okay for her to say like that?
Then, it wouldn't matter at all if I said,

"Dang, I proposed to her and she said yes'
"Dang, I finally passed the exam. I can't be happier.'

Could I expect your comment, please?

Not always. It can just be, as here, an expression of surprise or elation.

It wouldn't matter, except that you would sound like someone in a 1930s cowboy movie.
