THE STREAK ENDS TODAY. LET'S GO RED WINGS
OT Red Wings v Blackhawks
Let's go Wings!
I'm with ya. Bring on the Negs. Lets Go Hawks
Da dada da dadada da da danana
Garbage why is datsyuk centering abdelkader and cleary why is franzen not on that line. Emmerton is awful
Hossa still gets boo'd. Nice.
A guy plays for us for 1 year and helps us get to the Stanley Cup Final, we don't re-sign him, then our fans boo him?
People forget that Hossa wanted to stay in Detroit, but they couldn't give him a long term deal when they just committed 73 million dollars to Zetterberg.
Got the money.
during the Finals. It's the same reason why Pittsburgh was willing to let him walk the year before.
They offered him 7 million a year and he passed. Then they tried to sign him again before he came to Chicago.
You must have not watched the Finals, because he was nowhere to be seen.
I was really hoping the Wings would get a shot at Emery instead of Crawford today. Crawford in net tames my expectations just a bit for this game.
This is one of those games that makes it so hard to define the Wings. They'll show that they can hang with the best team in the NHL, yet we know they can also turn around and lose to Columbus. A win here could be huge going forward.
And by suck, I mean I dislike them, They appear to be a quite formidable squad
The Wings can't sustain any pressure in the offensive zone, this is a bit disturbing to see us out worked pretty heavily this period.
Yep. 3 shots in a period isn't gonna cut it against the Hawks.
Q is double shifting Patrick Kane because the Wings only have 6 D-Men dressed.
Good period, 3 shots..
HIs contract is frontloaded, so if can make it a few more years he will drop from 5 million to 3, then to 1.
One thing they have done very well is avoid the NTC, so if his production drops anymore he will probably finish his career in Florida or Columbus.
Mule isn't worth a pile of mule sh!t anymore.
on a side note. I don't like pierre mcguire. and olczyk calling a wings hawks game is annoying considering he is the hawks color commentator.
oh and what do the wings have to do to get a call in their own building
Eddie O is very unbiased in his national game calls. Agree on Pierre, guy is a nozzle who brings nothing to the telecast.
Listening to McGuire on tsn when he does some morning radio talk he actually is tolerable and insightful. I think NBC tells these guys to basically act like idiots because they think most viewers in America know what's going on.
I don't need to hear every game about how Duncan Keith and Justin Abdelkader played at Michigan State, or Brandon Saad's brother George plays at PSU. It does not interest me the slightest that JP Parise played for the North Stars, and Zach went to SSM.
He's a very knowledgeable person, he just gets very repetitive with his hockey facts.
Agreed but in his defense a little bit I don't think it's all him pushing the ideas to talk about college hockey. I'm not a fan really of the nbcs crew bill clement and Gary Thorne would be my preference if I can't have Mickey Redmond and ken Daniels
Babs needs to move Tatar up a line to play with Pavel, he's to gifted offensively to play on a checking line.
That Pavel has to play with the two most inept forwards on the team in Abdelkader and Cleary
Keep the streak alive! Perfect day for me will be a Blackhawks and Wolverines win! Go Hawks!
Pillows use Franzen to sleep on
We are not possessing the puck well today. Hopefully this power play will give us a goal. I don't know how much longer Jimmy can hold them.
If I had to play against Pavel, I'd be hooking, holding and crying.
The second half of that Power Play didn't look bad. We should have had the goal.
Much better period. Let's take that momentum into the 3rd!
Wings actually got to double digits in shots, matched the Hawks for 12 that period.
And I HATE carcillo. I don't know why they signed him, I hate how he plays, he's what's wrong with hockey. He's a hack and a dirty player.
Let's celebrate contact to a guys head and him getting totally concussed and injured!
Way to go champ.
That was a clean hit, if you don't see that then you've got some Chicago glasses on.
Rules then could have said that it was clean, you're still celebrating a traumatic brain injury to an opponent.
The vast majority of Michigan fans love this picture.
We will not have this argument again. Last time we agreeed to disagree.
But I'm going to argue that we shouldn't celebrate the scrambling of Morelli's brain either.
Remeber "JACKED UP!" on Monday night countdown? Yeah... attitudes on concussions have come a long way in the last 5 years. Knowing what we know now, neither play should be celebrated.
The Wings are outmatched. It's like they are trying to fight off a hungry lion with a folding chair. Makes me sad.
They are also using goals against this lion.
Old safari fact.
Tatar, 1-0 Wings!
Tatar with the goal
Ahi Tuna Tatar!!!!!!!!
Next couple minutes are important for the Wings. They haven't played well with a lead this season.
This makes me think Gus Johnson should be cutting his teeth doing B1G hockey next year. I would hope that growing up in Detroit would make him very familiar with hockey.
Time for the mule to be sold to the highest bidder.
Please tell me I am not the only wings fan tired of Franzen.
Seems like Chicago keeps going to Howard's stick side, but no luck yet. Lets hope it stays that way.
I hate that stupid puck over glass rule
Damnit Quincy, clear the damn puck.
Quincy the bag of suck. Dammit!
Kaner with the score. Go Hawks!!!
Are you fucking kidding me?!
I dont like that rule. Twice missed the glass just barely and 2 powerplays. Seems like the penalty does not fit the crime
The league can't figure out ways to naturally increase scoring, so they try to add in as many extra PP's as they can
Great. Another PK off a stupid fucking rule
Rule is fine...just got to not break it.
Oh good lord, stop takin awful penalties.
you gotta be kidding me. 2 delay of games in the last 2 1/2 minutes.
When you play not to lose.
fuck the streak, let's get a win. go wings
This. Got one point, lets get the second!
Damn defense for the wings hear a fart behind them, panic, and flip the fucking puck into the bleachers like a bunch of chumps.
Really missing Lidstrom this season.
Who has a stronger top three for a shootout?
Toews, Kane, and either Hossa or Sharp. The #3 shooter for the hawks hasn't been great this year no matter who it is
You are a real Negative Nancy.
Jimmy should have let that one go in, just to troll everybody
Of course it's Kane
Worst move ever to put it in Crawford chest
Another blown lead. This is becoming an all-too-typical ending for the Red Wings this season.
Great shot by Kane! Now I'm ready for a beat down of Sparty!
and the hawks didn't need their #3.
Great game. Trust the NHL to fuck this up and take away 66% of the games between these two.
I hate Chicago, but i do feel for their fans to not get at least one other Original 6 team in the entire conference.
Would STL become your big in conference rival?
St Louis and Vancouver. After having played them 3 playoffs in a row, there's a lot of bad blood with the Canucks.
I'd argue Blackhawks fans hate those shit boxes from the Canucks more than your Wings right now. Not that the Wings-Blackhawks rivalry isn't still #1, but fuck Vancouver.
While I hate Chicago there is no doubting that they're the best team in the league, sucks to not close it when we had the chance but at least we took a point.
shitbox for a reason
That game hurt me physically to watch at the end. If we don't beat MSU today, I'm going to lose my mind.
