Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Let's get this thread rolling please.. Tootoo fight thougts?
Useless fight, no reason for it
Thank you. I thought I was the only one. I get standing up for your teammates but there is no place in hockey for staged crap like that.
but the box score on espn says that tootoo got in a fight at the 0:03 mark of the 1st. isn't that the second game in a row he's made that entry?
Weak penalty on Kronwall.
I love Redmond's stories.
Plus it's time to break above .500
I miss Lidstrom.
TooToo at it again. At least it might wake up the crowd.
better not get another, or else its an ejection/fine/suspension.
From what I've seen this season, we've been late to loose pucks, late back on line changes, and refuse to keep our sticks on the ice. Might a well be late on our periods while we're at it..
we just havent skated well. i said it after the first game of the season. still true.
hard time watching the NHL anymore due to the amount of powerplays. Every game is basically a special teams contest anymore, and excessive whistles really kills the flow of the game. What do you expect though, when you have a commissioner who doesn't know the first thing about the sport.
I'm with you on the excessive whistles, but the penalties seem like a pretty small portion of that. What annoys the crap out of me are goalies freezing the puck when the puck just drifts towards them for no particular reason. They should be forced to play the puck unless it was a shot on goal.
The game needs tight penalty calling, because teams have been exploiting all of the little defensive tricks that they can use for about 15 years now. Last year's playoffs was a return to the catastrophically bad pre-lockout style.
FSNP isnt working for me. Pens are down 2-0. Go Isles!
Tied up! Great play by Datsyuk.
That was a nasty high stick... hope Bert is OK.
I have to limit my snark here.
What?? Why isn't that 4 min???
No clue but at least we made them pay finally! 2-1 Wings!!
PPG Zetterberg. Wings up 2-1
perfect example of stuff that has no business being called. They ran into each other feet's, how the heck is that a penatly on either player? Dallas also got screwed over as well. Follow-throughs on shots/shoot-ins are not supposed to be four minute penalties. Like I said maybe I am alone here, but 12+ total power plays every game is not my idea of good hockey.
Lehtonen has been making great saves. Wings are getting good shots and plenty of chances so they are going to go in. Way to go Zetterberg.
Fuck yeah America
Has being cut above and below the eye ever sounded better?
Brunner? 3-1 Wings!
Brooooooooner!! Kid is good!
The word "runner" is in the name.
(PS my freshman year there were at least 5 of us on campus)
In a previous game I heard Ken Daniels say that while Brunner initially said "Bruhnner" was OK, he wants it pronounced "Broonner."
I am sure Doc Emrick will pronounce it correctly. He only has a PhD in linguistics.
Not regretting taking the risk of drafting Brunner in my fantasy hockey draft! Hope he can keep up the production, the Red Wings desperately need it.
Here some offense for ya.
Was just thinking need to buckle down early after opening up a 2 goal lead then we score again.
Ernie Harwell, Baseball at the Corner, Budd Lynch, Steve Yzerman
Time marches on.........
are gelling especially on the D end, this team, if healthy, can compete with anyone. We might have got something real special with the Brunner kid, could be the next great Wing.
Stay healthy Go Wings
