  2. Tampa has some clutch players stepping up in big moments. They've surprised me, considering they look so beatable.
  3. I've only seen Bishop play one good game, and that was game 5. Even last year, Bishop has always looked like a goalie who benefits from luck and solid defensive play around him. If the Wings had players who could finish, we could have swept the bolts.
  4. 5 points. 2-0-1 will guarantee us the playoffs. We have ROW so alternatively all we have to do is beat boston and win one of the other two. It's not easy but it's doable.
  5. Personally, I think Mrazek is hitting that sophmore slump goalies seem to go through. He will be elite, you can see it when he continues to get into position and battle to get in the way of the puck, he's just not on top of his game. I go with the hot hand in Howard for a little while and if he falters, Mrazek will need to step in and get the job done. It's just the way it goes, feels like when one goalie falters, the other has stepped up and we find ways to get points.
  6. The problem we have with scoring comes from our defence. Our top 6 guys (Larkin, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Nyquist, Tatar and Abdelkader) represent 57% of our goals. After you get past their contributions of 30+ points, our next best point producer (Mike Green) has 21 points. In the past, our best point producers usually included the top line and top 2 Dmen. That is the biggest difference I see - the past several years there has been little offence from the D and it all falls on the forwards. If the defence can get shots through from the point, it should be easier for us to be more consistent with our scoring.

    Is it that he's #1? Or is he being given a chance to get pucks to hit him again? He's no doubt our best goalie, but wouldn't it be better to have your best goalie against the Rangers tomorrow? I think it should be Howard tonight and Mrazek tomorrow, but I'm not in charge.

    Getting a win is a team thing, it's not solely the goaltender's fault. Howard allowed 2 goals, that should be enough to win most games in this league. Both our goalies are playing well, Mrazek has faced far more shots on average and as a result has a worse GAA overall. Mrazek is certainly the future but he and Howard are on par with each other at this point in time, at least the way I see it.
  9. Hope a video shows up for that one. Almost as bad as that "goalie interference" call from last year.

    1. I can't tell if that's actually the puck (I assume it is) 2. I can't tell if the puck is fully across the line (other angles demonstrate it from what I've seen) 3. From an unbiased perspective, this image does not conclusively overturn the call. (couple it with other angles though...)
  11. I like Cleary and what he's done, but he doesn't have a place on the team anymore. He should try for another team or hang em up.
  12. Beating Montreal fans, if they get into it, is impossible. There are too many of them.
  13. I'm not so sure, Chicago did not look good vs. Nashville. If the preds knew how to hold a lead, Hawks don't come close to the second round.
  14. The perfect result tonight would be a Detroit win and an Ottawa regulation loss. This would clinch all playoff spots in the east, meaning we would be in. Pittsburgh has been slumping lately (as bad as detroit) so Wings just need to take care of their game, let us fans worry about the other one. Edit: maybe not boston... they can lose and fall out of playoff contention if they like.

    It does however mean our "magic number" is 6, which is better than when we started tonight.
