    3/18 GDT | Detroit Red Wings @ Colorado Avalanche | 3 PM ET

    Colorado's second goal is a perfect example of why Detroit stinks. They get all kinds of pressure in the offensive zone and can't score. Helm gets knocked easily off the puck, Ericsson makes a Stupid and slow pinch. 2 on 1 down low and a goal
  3. And he has "a high compete level"
  4. There are just too many stretches when this team is outworked. It is one thing when teams have more talent, but there is no excuse to be out hustled and outworked.
  5. Good news....looks like Abby has been upgraded to the 1st line!
  6. It seems after every game Blashill goes out of his way to heap praise on Sheahan. It's just go bizarre how some guys are held accountable and others contantly get a free pass.

    Perhaps because of the deterant of receiving a penalty! No, you don't see that anymore, but it does not mean it's no longer a delay of game. The point is there should be a more tangible consequence for losing a challenge than the current system. And Bob Rouse always played within the rules of the game. No illegal sticks necessary for Number 3.

    There really needs to be a deterrent to these challenges. If you lose the challenges it should be a delay of game penalty. Why is it delay of game if you ask a ref to measure an illegal stick, but not for delaying the game for these reviews. There's no consequence, particularly late in games, to challenge other than losing a timeout or the potential to challenge later.

    11/20 GDT : Calgary Flames 3, at Red Wings 2

    I missed the third period but saw that Howard took a penalty with like a minute and 15 seconds left. Why did Mantha serve the penalty? This team struggles hardcore to score goals and the one goal scorer you have sits in the box at the end of the game? Am I missing something?

    ECSF : Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals

    I thought the same thing. I was under the impression that they could assist in calling a major penalty or even a four minute. I don't recall ever seeing that for a two minute penalty. Interestingly something similar happened last night in the Islanders/lighting game; however the officials blew the play dead on the high stick, but never made a call. The officiating in the playoffs this year has seemed particularly bad.

    The Blues look damn good right now

    M1. Washington Caps vs W2. Philadelphia Flyers

    I was there when this happened. It was an incredible performance by Bill Burr and he won the crowd over.
  13. Watching some of these other games really shows you how far away Detroit is now.
  14. So much of this loss falls on the coaching staff. I would highly doubt Blashill will be fired, but it may start the clock running on his tenure as coach. One would hope that he wil learn from his mistakes this year and grow from them as a coach. Special teams essentially won this series and this is an area where Detroit looked completely lost. I mentioned this in a previous thread, but even their 5 on 3 set up looked like a train wreck. I don't know how a team goes from a top end PP one year to an absolute dumpster fire the next. Again, that has to fall on the coaching staff. Ericsson bothers me every time I see him on the ice, but he is who he is. Is it his fault he's treated like a number 2 defenseman? Again, that falls on the coaching staff. I'm not at the point of dismissal of Blashill, but he needs to be on a short leash and demonstrate he is able to learn from this.

    ECQF Game 3 GDT : Tampa Bay Lightning at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

    Doesn't it seem odd that on a 5 on 3 their top goal scorer does not step foot on the ice?
