2nd period has started, still 0-0. 4th seed potentially on the line.
Let's Go Red Wings!
Edit: So good to see Howard back in net!
Is it bad to want them to drop to 6th seed and face a weak dallas team
Yes, I think it's better to have home ice. The Wings haven't been so good on the road this year.
Dammit, they score first.
Where the hell is everyone?
I'm breaking everything I own and stabbing my Ken Holland voodoo doll. Hey, I got an idea, let's sign Mr. Turnover Ericsson to an inflated contract and tease the team with an actually competent defenseman named Brendan Smith!
Oh, and we'll trade for Quincey, whom we previously cut, just so we can make him a healthy scratch because he's worse than Mr. Turnover, and both of them combined are worse then Brendan Smith.
/fucking fuck you Ken Holland sarcasm
Bud Light Platinum wording, btw, but my sober feelings completely.
Can you name a better GM than Holland? Not just in the NHL, include any league you want.
I didn't say he wasn't the best, but you're telling me you agree with the moves I stated above? Every GM makes mistakes, and I'm mad at Kenny for Ericsson and Quincey.
No joy on the PP, but Preds have too many men.
Holy shit, how did he stop that!?!
Damn, 0-3 on the PP.
Long time lurker, first time poster. Live in Chicago, does anyone know of an online game stream?
3-0 good guys!
Thought you'd be at some strip club in Cali. Second thought I guess you could be.
and I need to keep pregaming! Bar tabs can get expensive.
I miss Carl. It's nice to see him play though. He's got an assist tonight
3-1 good guys still leading. But the Wings got a goal so yay for you!
Empty netter. Damn, Wings need to pick up their play going into the playoffs.
Only interesting because it saved me from having to look for each of them individually. Both are looking good
Nashville with the final nail in the coffin! 4-1 good guys! The Wings' prospects for a #4 seed sure have taken a hit!
Who cares what seed we are really...the playoffs are a crap shoot and we can hang with anybody. Wings got all the pieces we just got to perform and the playoffs are Red Wing time. Haha when have the playoffs ever been Nashville time?
I'm a Wings fan, and this is not the year to be cocky. A sweep by Nashville would not surprise me at all. We may have "pieces", but we ain't got no drive. We're like Mustang only firing on one piston.
I wasn't being cocky, I said anything can and will happen in the playoffs. We have all seen teams on hot streaks like NJ a few years back (10 game win streak) lose in the first round AND teams backing into the playoffs getting deep...Also not sure why making fun of Nashville's past playoff ineptitude is "flame bait".
Have you watched any Red Wings games lately?
So I know this isn't a red wings board, but you're clearly trolling an open thread of red wings fans. No one cares about the flippin Nashville Predators.
He's apparently incapable of the class we normally see out of opposing fans on Red Wings threads, but I guess he had his fun time trolling for reactions. If that makes his life better, so be it.
Whatever though, Nashville is clearly an opponent worthy of respect with their amazing Stanley Cup history, conference championship history and divisional championship history. Not to mention their long tradition of excellence in the NHL.
Yikes, you're sensitive. I don't consider myself classless because I'm not a Red Wings fan. All I really did was announce when goals were scored: a vital service in an open thread. Keep your head up, brah; anything can happen in the playoffs.
I'm not sure if you are a Nashville fan or a Wings hater, but the end of your post about the Wings seeding outlook makes you look like a troll. Either way hockey playoffs can't come soon enough and even with this cold streak I like our chances to go far.
The Wings looked like they were in slow motion the whole game. That was painful to watch.
Completely agree. The Red Wings, quite literally, are one of the worst teams in hockey right now. And to be honest, maybe it would be a good thing if they get swept and absolutely embarassed. Management won't stand for that, and maybe that will force them to make a serious move for a guy like Nash or Parise.
Terrible, or they are playing some sort of strategy to get the 6 seed and play a team out of the shitty pacific in the first round
