Official Red Wings Game Two Playoff Thread
Lets Go Wings!!!
Let's get to work!!!
Bring it boys!
Go Ved vings!
LETS GO RED WINGS!!!!!!
Annnnnnnnnd they're off!
Franzen getting his best effort in early today.
Wings to the early peeps. Let's score a quick one here. I'm calling a Franzen goal.
Let's capitalize here
A GREAT POINT. I THINK CAPITALIZING IS REALLY GOOD. WE SHOULD FOCUS ON IT MORE OFTEN.
We look really slow.
Wtf was that
the fuck are you doing?
Why? Just dump it into the corner.
That was terrible.
That was.. Ugly.
The worst goal of all time has to be when Paul Coffey put it in his own net.
I like this one too, since it was an OT game winner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjqM_GSdD04
He had a hat trick in that game - 2 for the Wings and one for the Avs
Wasn't their an own goal when someone tried to throw the puck behind his net and instead threw it right behind the goalie? That one was pretty bad.
Nice, Jimmy. Thanks for covering the puck. Oh wait...you didn't.
The whole left side is wide open and there's a Red Wing right there to take a simple pass.
Need to get their heads in the game.
It's like they didn't expect boston would come out to play.
We're getting manhandled. It's over.
Game Over. Go back to your other sunday activities
Quincey just flails his stick after 2 guys are behind him. Guy is pretty worthless.
Long road to go now. At worst we split. The guys can skate with the Bees so we have a series going long.
We need Big E back.
Shit I'll take Z
I knew Chara was a beast but I didn't realize he was 6'9
You just thought everyone else was 6'0 and under?
Dirty hit on Smith? Sure looked like it.
Nvm didn't look nearly as bad on the replay.
I thought it was at least a charge. Seemed like he came in from a long way out just to make that hit after not being involved in the play at all.
Wings can barely control the puck
Son of bitch. Shit.
stick with Coke.
Unfortunately they've got nobody else experienced enough to take his spot. Once Ericsson comes back Kindl goes right back to being a healthy scratch.
Refs need to call some of this dirty crap.
Maybe this will light a fire
The B's are goons.
B Goons would love to see a RW bust somebody's head a la probie.
Still haven't tried to kill someone like Bartuzzi
If Babcock gets sick of coaching, he can become a personal stylist. The man is impeccably dressed all the time.
Smith better get away from Chara before he dies lol
Appreciate the thought smith. But just no.
I was unaware that Chara was some prize fighter. Or are the commentators just assuming that everyone should be afraid of him because he is tall?
OK, Chara would break Smith in half.
I can get behind that. LGRW!
next to Chara.
Anyone have a link for this game? I can't find one that isn't asking me to download a bunch if shit.
Thx! I tried that link earlier and it said that it was done broadcasting for the day.
And come back and use your speed. Your not going to win the physical game. They are playing into Boston's hand. Get some shots, crash the net. Let's go wings
The wings got way too caught up in trying to play smash hockey. They just need to relax and be the more desperate team the next two + periods.
Thank God the ref stepped in at the end of the first. Chara looked like he was about to pile drive him into the ice
I blame Leyland
Mother of god this tigers game is almost over thank god. Then I can watch some constant action.
That guy behind Babcock in the crowd was about wrist deep into his nose during that interview.
Franzen is soooooo bad.
LETS GO LUKE!
LET'S GO DAMMIT!!!!!!
Claude Julien looked like a sad Galapagos tortoise after that goal
We smell blood. Let's tie it right here boys!
Would help if more than Datsyuk showed up.
I've literally never seen brendan smith do anything worthwhile
At least, except for a couple occurrences today, he hasn't looked like a deer in the headlights for every second of the game like he did last season.
To be fair. That was a pretty sick sequence by Boston
To be fair you suck at hockey
Says the overweight 50 year old who can't skate at all...
Fuck boston. Also , David ortiz is a roiding, cheating son of a bitch. And your city's accent is the stupidest ever.
I hate Boston... Lucic is a dick
Would love to see Kronwall rock his world. One game guys. Lots of hockey left. Boston came out desperate and they wanted this more than the Wings.
He is a total prick. And he's very hesitant to mix it up with anyone who's truly feared in the league. He'll beat the hell out of the Brandon Prusts of the world... but ask him to step up against a true enforcer and he'll talk about how that's not his game.
Sweet just jacked a 3 run homer
This isn't really helping.
Alfie still injured? He ain't keeping up. Bert for corner work and in front of their net. Not getting blinding the goal.
Howard has to control that rebound
4 softies for howard today
The defense didn't help him out much on the Lucic goal
True, but he could have done better.
Not sure if serious...
Why even pull Howard?
As trey Burke proved last year it ain't over till it's over
Howard stunk it up today.
Eh. With the way the offense was playing he would have had to backstop another shutout for the Wings to win.
Just a terrible game all around
right as Howard got pulled but they did seem to get better at about halfway through the third. Obviously not good enough, but better than they had been looking.
Forwards who are not Datsyuk need to show up. Zetterberg is desperately needed to just drag people into trying hard.
Its not like Boston wasn't kind of good this year, or been kind of good for the last few years. Its called 'push back', its what good teams do when they lose a game in the playoffs.
Detroit got what they wanted in Boston, a win. To win this series Boston must win at the Joe.
Home ice means very little in hockey.
Not sure about that.
Have to disagree. As you saw today as soon as boston got their first goal they never let up and the crowd played a huge factor in that. To steal one game was huge to have a shot at this series but boston fed off of the crowd. Sports illustrated had an interesting article a few years back about home field advantage and while it may not be as big of a factor as we may think the results showed that officials are more likely to favor the home team due to the crowd. In hockey momentum is everything.
Tampa Bay is getting boned in Montreal.
I got club seats and made big plans for game five and I'm really starting to think there's about zero percent chance that game gets played.
The no goal, the offsides, didn't call a penalty on the interference, Stamkos takes a knows to the head. You know it's bad when CBC announcers call it out.
Tough loss, but the game one win still has the odds pretty significantly in Detroit's favor. The game one winner wins the series almost 2/3 of the time, and even higher when the game one winner is the road team. Just need to keep battling.
Let's go Kings!
So. About that. Wow. They sure look like they are falling apart at the seams.
Smith taking a beating throughout social media. I did feel he was getting targeted a little by the Bruins and it probably wasn't a bad idea to try to make a statement, but...going after the other team's 6'9" captain and just getting laughed at probably wasn't the way to go about it.
What's your next username going to be?
He's 6'2 and 200+. I doubt he cares what a bunch of out of shape internet strangers say about him going up against Chara. Not one of those posters would have the balls to go against Smith.
Did anyone else think it was funny that Lucic threw a fit when he got caught twenty feet offsides and the empty net goal didn't count? Uhhh dude, your team is up by three goals. Calm down.
Yeah Roids are a hell of a drug...
with them so I consider that a huge win.
