Thanks for the reminder, it completely slipped my mind somehow. Let's go Wings!
OT- Wings/Blues: 3-2 Wings in the Shootout
This is one shade of Blues it's OK to detest. Go Wings!
Wings PP. Playoff atmosphere in St. Louie. Still scoreless.
A win tonight in STL would show that we are geared up for a run and are finally healthy again. Go Wings!
Wings PP on tap. Howard's busting out the moves tonight. Nice steal by Bertuzzi.
No score. Stl's PK system looked more aggressive than classical diamond coverage. Does anyone have more knowledge as to the system that was played?
Anybody got a stream?
Is Mike Emrick the best play-by-play announcer in all of sports ?
confused about nessler there @2.. I do miss Gary thorne doing NHL games for espn though
Emrick makes watching hockey so much more enjoyable
Homer pick obviously, but Ken Daniels is up there. He's getting picked up to do national games on NBC now when the Wings aren't on, and before he got the Detroit job he was the first alternate for Hockey Night in Canada.
End of 2nd, 0-0.
Did anyone catch if there was a penalty on Franzen there after the horn ending the second? It did not look like he was sent to the box, but that may only be because it was the end of the period.
0-0 through two. Very even game. Howard is playing very well, and the Blues have 15 blocked shots (!).
Also, Darren Helm is the hardest working player in hockey. He is sorely missed right now.
Possible ejection for St. Louis. Took out Stuart.
Boarding on STL. PP with 13 minutes left in the Third. Not clear whether it's a major--it looked like it to me. C'mon Wings, now's the time.
Edit: five minute major.
We need to score here. Our PP has left something to be desired lately, though...
Our PP is garbage. We get a five minute PP and break the tie... the wrong way. So ridiculous.
What the hell is it with the short-handed goals lately? I've seen the Wings allow more in the past month than I have in the past decade.
fuck mang 5 minute PP that we look like shit on and we give up a shortie
This isn't Detroit hockey. It seems like any game since the all star break in which we faced adversity (I.e. teams not just bending over for us) we simply haven't had a plan and then buckled. This is why I'm scared for the playoffs. It's not November, teams aren't going to play like shit simply because we are the red wings.
Damn damn damn.
I keep thinking that myself. There is something really wrong with this team. Need a big change in the offseason once we get stomped out of the first round.
2-0. Not looking good at all.
Ruined my fucking night
can't seem to get a break.
At this point, maybe we should be happy that we're going to end up with the 6 seed. Because we sure as hell can't beat Nashville in a best of 7. I'd much rather watch a round w/ LA or PHX where we have a fighting chance.
Datsyuk to Franzen x2!
Tied up!! 2-2. It's never over 'til it's over
2-2. You guys still want to talk shit about the team "bending under pressure"...c'mon guys we are better than that!
been battling injuries for a few weeks either right? I mean just Datsyuk, Helm, Lidstrom, Howard. Who am I missing?
It takes some time to get back on the same page after coming back to. Really a cold streak is much better to have now than in the playoffs. Nashville will be tough, but the way the west is shaping up I like our chances after round 1.
Ericsson, Helm, Bertuzzi, MacDonald, Eaves...
just read this thread without knowing the score.
I'll be the first to gladly admit I may have overreacted... woops. Guess that's what I get for turning the game off.
I don't think you have. We went 0 for 11 minutes of powerplay, and turned the puck over go knows how many times. If being frustrated at that and noting it verbally on a sports blog is considered over reacting or "shit talking" (is this 6th grade?) then they can gladly burn me at the stake with you...
Either way, still pretty cool that we have a chance to win this game...
I was just frustrated with all the negativity for a regular season game granted seeding is on the line. I'm just getting the vibe that losing a game by a goal means we suck and will get swept in round one based off the sentiments of the board the last few games. So nothing personal to anyone individually.
Please prove me wrong wings! I love being wrong!
The streak continues.
What a big point for the wings!
Looked pretty good in OT.. going to a shootout
This is the kind of game that you wish didn't have to end in a shootout.
Let Franzen have a shot.
Gutty win. Way to pull it out in the end. I'm sorry for doubting.
THE TUZZZZZZZ. Still in 4th baby
For the win! 2 points baby.
I'd say I was amazed but I've seen it to much. Plus perfect timing. Left time to finish UTL on BTN.
Scores!!!! Wings Win!
These guys never cease to aMAISE me. If Dats isn't the best in NHL someone tell me who is. Let's get Helm back and make a few adjustments. I hope we go deep for #5, # 23.
This thread should be referenced in the FAQ.
Were cheering like it was a Stanley cup winning game. It was a regular season game. Then their team blew it. Haha, after chanting red wings suck too. 11 cups to 0 bitches
Can we please stop putting game spoilers in thread titles?
Somebody totally went through here and flamebaited everybody they didn't agree with. Even if the point was made succinctly and respectfully.
Read all of the assclown statements when the score was 2-0. Hilarious! The wings are at the top of the conference and getting healthy. They are past 100 points again.
