A point each.
OT: Red Wings v Blue Jackets (here's hoping the other night was a fluke) all purpose thread
This team needs some work if they want to make a playoff run.
defense needs a serious upgrade. like serious upgrade.
our second line needs to get its shit together. and we need helmer back. deperately.
Could've signed Redden but passed. Management doesn't think it's a dire situation. Waiting patiently for the right move.
Understatement of the year?
I think people underestimate how big of a difference Helm makes.
I don't. Team really misses him when he gets hurt. Hope he's back soon.
Lets end this in OT. Shootouts are much less enjoyable to watch (and harder to win) without Bertuzzi.
Wow. That might be a no-goal.
No goal, I hope.
Hate that clanging sound when you're shooting. Best friend when you're in net, though.
The posts have not been our friends tonight
Understatement of the day.
They've been our enemies
Three saves by Howard!
Bertuzzi and hudler were shootout regulars last year... maybe missing them tonight (though I remember Hudler kind of sucking)
I was going to say that Hudler is definitely not a loss on shootout front. Never liked him in the regular shootout lineup. Bert is big though.
What a deke by Brunner, welcome to the show son!
That was simply disgusting!
Nice move. Red Wings win.
Brunner == breakfast + lunch + dinner all in one!
Lets hope he can start doing it in regulation
HOMESTAR BRUNNER, you're my boy!
They needed this win. In response to OP, I am not sure this shows that opening night was a fluke, but these are the games the Wings need to win to make the playoffs.
Much better tonight. Not just a win but the team played well. Gave up a couple short handed goals but overall much better.Lashoff and Bruner looked good and the veterans of the team did well.
is just really good
they are the favorites to win the cup
is crazy good. Not 6 goal favorties over us in my opion, I think just some rust coming off plus missing 3 of our better players in Burt, Helm and Ericsson. I was surprised by the loss but wasnt really panicking.
was not a fluke, but not because of the Red Wings. Its because the Blues really have gotten a lot better over the last few years and this year they seem to have some of the pieces finally fall into place. I live in St Louis and I've noticed some of their acquisitions lately and they're doing things right...they're building a very solid team around Oshie and Co.
Wow what a goal by Brunner for the win. Sadly, I missed it while working last night, but here is a replay:
