OT- Wings/Blues: 3-2 Wings in the Shootout

Submitted by SFBlue on April 4th, 2012 at 8:37 PM

0-0 end of first.  Need to kill this penalty.

 

We need some good news.  It's been a disasterous month for Michigan/Wings fans.

 

Edit: w00000000000000000t!  Franzen nets two goals, Bertuzzi gets one in the shootout, Wings come back from a two-goal hole with ten minutes left in the third, on the road.

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?

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 (!).

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.

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.

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.

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.
