looking pretty good so far. Dominating possession but a couple sloppy plays.

looking pretty good so far. Dominating possession but a couple sloppy plays.
I hate running into a great goalie in the playoffs... looks like it's going to be a long series.
i hope kronwall launches jovanovski into orbit with a huge hit - i loathe that clown.
they can't possibly keep this up for 60 minutes, let alone a full series.
highlight reel! or not. whatever, I will take it!
Soft goal much?
Holmstron scores! 1-0 wings!
not howards fault there.
That sucks. I see your soft goal and call.
I'm not sure you could call that goal soft. Stuart clearly changed the trajectory of that shot
Didn't notice that until the replay.
out? enough already.
Next goal will be from the center line at this rate.
back to the PP.
This really has nothing to do with the game but is sweet
for this I would - awesome, hadn't seen it yet. One of my fondest memories as a Wing/Yzerman fan growing up. I love that guy!
Wow, just keep shooting
MORE WOOOOOOOOO!!! Father Time from the point.
Greatest defenseman in NHL history
Is there a record for most distance traveled on goal shots in a game?
Yes. Pretty sure it was set here:
Oh, you wanted an NHL record? No idea.
Women's Hockey blowout huh? You usually have to pay for that kind of action, Cotton. Am I right, or am I right?
"Through the wickets through the wickets through the wickets WEEEEE and it's in."
my god. Versus commentary is so much better than some of the bs we've had to listen to this year.
We want moooooooooooooooore goals!
SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE SIEVE
ITS ALL YOUR FAULT! ITS ALL YOUR FAULT!
sieve sieve sieve sieve sieve
link to a stream if people are like me and cant watch on the television
Awesome. On behalf of those of us stuck at work, thank you.
to see old man Drapes kick the snot out of some Phoenix punk.
Coyote players slamming into Red Wing players. RW players barely moving. 30 seconds later a RW player comes in and just destroys a Coyote player. Crowd boos.
Rinse, Lather, Repeat.
(anyone notice that the process of rinse, lather, repeat either never ends or leaves shampoo in your hair? what is the deal. with that?)
It's blatantly obvious that Phoenix, like Philadelphia, knows they can't skate half as well as the Wings, so they play dirty and hope the zebras make homer calls. Unlike in Philly, however, these refs are calling out Phoenix at their own game.
That punk Jovanofkdjoifhig needs a good dong punch. From Bertuzzi.
Probably because it is actually Lather, Rinse, Repeat...
when did blue line get added? or is this a new cheer entirely?
Because every shot has been from the blue line. It has become significant and is better at blocking goals than the sieve.
Any city south of the Mason Dixon line should not be allowed to have a hockey team. Anyone with me?
thank bettman the jackass for having as many teams in Florida as there are in Ontario.
But the Thrashers, Predators, Hurricanes, Panthers, and Lightning have to go.
"What in the sam hill is a back check?"
"Pavel Datsyuk leads the league with 130 giveaways." Versus fail.
I didn't think the game was going to be on Fox Sports Detroit, but it is. Glad I checked.
By the way, the Versus crew calling the game tonight consists of Tampa Bay's lead commentator for SUN and the color guy for the Dallas Stars, who is actually a lot of fun to listen to.
certainly better than emrick and olczyk. i hate those guys.
If Phoenix keeps taking these stupid penalties, the score could get really lopsided
Saw this today, and thought it was pretty cool, lidstrom is tied for second most playoff games played at 238 games.
In da booth? Me gusta.
Can't keep up the physical play- unless they want to be in the box- which is cool with me.
Its time for The Mule to get the next goal!
LETS GO RED WINGS!!!
at least its our turn again
Ugh. PK needs help.
The Coyotes have had a terrible power play all year.
Not content to give up one golden opportunity, we gave up a second.
...2009 Playoff PK
We didn't miss you or want you, but you saw fit to return anyway.
is making nauseous
are there 10 mins remaining in this period?
are really trying hard to give this one away. Lets oblige them.
That was a poopy power play.
Looked like a clean hit to me.
Did Kronwall just get Kronwalled?
these phoenix fans suck. every big hit by the coyotes they go crazy but when the red wings get a even a body on a guy they start booing and begging for a call.
Isn't that what fans of most home teams do?
RW fans just keep pace with the game and often will go "oooo" or murmur when a hit is made on their player. the Phoenix fans are calling for penalties.
No, Phoenix fans are worse than most, probably because almost none of them actually understand the game
Shane Doan is going down, O'doyle style. But I've gotta go study.
Sydney Crosby advertising shoes? Makes a whole lot of sense to me.
1-0 over SJ, 7:30 remaining in the 2nd
notice how they cut to action in other games that have implications? Do that during March Madness. K Thx
knock shane doan out. i'm already sick of him.
I guess nowadays one would feed him a composite sandwich?
It seems like Phoenix has gotten away with much worse than what Kronwall just did
PK needs to make a stand here.
cant give up 3 on the kill
Jesus christ, 0-3 on the penalty kill
Just go the fuck back to Winnipegg please.
this is getting ridiculous.
wtf is going on with the pk? SRSLY!
phoenix "howl" may be more annoying than the purdue train
looks as shaky as I've ever seen him. That is not good friends.
i'm not your friend, guy
to kill penalties when the refs don't ignore blatant interference that the old-ass commentators can see which directly leads to a goal.
if the red wings don't win, i blame TomVH
About to head out to the #RedWings game. Look for me, I'll be the only person wearing baby blue.
about 6 hours ago via web
Drew Miller got a composite stick up his ass, and the wings didn't go on the pp, yet this.
please make it stop no more ppg
no more penalties kthx
What a fucking joke.
WTF, no one saw that??!!?!?!
have managed to coax the Wings into a football game tonight.
The coyotes are straight up setting picks at this point.
slashing is legal now as long as you do it to someone's face.
my hate for coyotes is now in full effect.
Let's see Phoenix win a game when they've got like 6 people in the box (which will happen if they pull that shit at Joe Louis).
Win game 2, and we've still got a split.
true, but it basically makes game 2 a must win for the wings.
coming back from down 2-0 is not an easy task, especially with wings teams that tend to do better at the start of series than at the end.
Crap ice, crap officiating, crap fans and, most importantly, a crap PK from Detroit.
Crap, crap, crap.
It's the Camp Randall game all over again...
Bogus calls followed up by a poor PK that leads to goals. Even the same score!
We won't make it very far like this.
howard made some nice saves when even strength but the pk needs to be fixed. im gonna blame jet lag on this on though.
Shane Doan was unbelievable. He seemed like he was everywhere, delivering the hits and the energy.
Howard looked shaky, especially on that third goal.
If the yotes keep playing that way and the Wings don't adjust, this series will be over quick, and I'll be seriously pissed heading into summer.
What amazed me was the Yotes on the power play. Yotes are not good on the power play, at all. If detroit doesn't work on that diamond, this series could be over next Tuesday.
They played unusually well, and the Wings played unusually poorly. The neutral zone and defensive end turnovers, as well as the PK, were atrocious. I don't see that continuing to happen. That's why they play 7 games.
That was a physical ass beating the likes of which I don't think I have ever seen. Detroit got completely bitched in the body check department and then played "don't hurt me" hockey for the last 30 minutes. 20-10 were the shots on goal in the third period. A perfect example of a team winning because they wanted it more. If Game 2 goes like this, Babcock needs to put Abdelkader in the lineup to shake things up.
and even I couldn't stand the way the Wings lacked physicality tonight. Usually they give back at least 2/3 of what they get, but tonight they just got beat up and down the rink.
is a perfect example of why single elimination hockey tournaments don't work.
I blame the OP.
At least the Sharks and Penguins lost tonight. Amirite?
The biggest thing about this game that should concern Red Wings fans is that it appears that Phoenix has the two things that have traditionally given the Red Wings fits in their prior early round exits: (1) goaltending and (2) outstanding speed. I was honestly shocked at how much faster Phoenix was than Detroit was.
