  1. Canada vs USA - Women's Gold medal game - 6:30 EST

    Still bitter over last night, huh?
  2. WCQF GAME 4 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Blue Jackets 5

    Keeping Ozzie in would be giving this game to the Jackets. He can hardly move out there. It looks like his groin to me. I'd take my chances on Conklin to close this one out, whether we have to go back to Detroit or not, and let Ozzie start round 2.
  3. 3/23 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Flames 5

    How many different bulls*** excuses can you give for moving the faceoff out of the Flames' zone? I don't typically like to blame the reffing, but tonight was absolutely brutal.
  4. Chris Osgood- What do we do?

    Agreed. Much like Dom last year, Osgood will almost certainly be starting in the post-season unless he absolutely collapses (keep in mind his record is actually pretty good), so I'd rather we give him the means to get his game back on track rather than just benching him. Granted tonight was a big statement game for Ozzie following yet another shutout for Conklin, and he really didn't perform. I didn't think any of the goals were awful, but six is a few too many to give up.
  5. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    I know they were great shots, but Ozzie didn't make any attempt to come out and challenge. He just looks shaky back there.
  6. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    I was actually pretty stoked for the chance to take first place tonight, even if San Jose had a game at hand. I've always thought the second seed was cursed. And mess with our dynamite fourth line? I don't think so.
  7. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Yeah, allowing both those breakaways was pretty inexcusable, but Ozzie looked really tentative in net tonight. Those were some great shots, but both those goals in the third were in the net before he even reacted.
  8. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    I agree that the back-to-back against the Blackhawks was a big test for the Wings that we responded well to. But I think it's pretty clear the only team that can roll with Detroit in the Western Conference is San Jose, every other team in the conference is ten points back from us, so it's tough to see us collapse in a game we had a couple leads in. And you can really only blame so much on fatigue, I know it was three games in four nights, but the Wings did have a day off.
  9. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    That's right, because a win in that 6-0 game would've put us ahead of the Sharks for the first time this season. Oh wait... I didn't forget our shutout of the Sharks a month or so ago, I just think it's pretty clear this was the biggest game of the season and we fell apart in the third. Not that the game wasn't extremely entertaining, but the performance of our defence and goaltending was less than impressive.
  10. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    This game was clearly more important.
  11. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Biggest game of the season so far and we f***ed it up.
  12. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Late whistle.
  13. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    And we don't have a timeout.
  14. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    And the colour guy is bitching.
  15. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Ugh. You're allowed to move Ozzie.
  16. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    The Ducks colour guy is throwing a total hissyfit. He got the extra two for running Franzen when the play was done.
  17. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Come on now, that would've been a pretty tough save. I thought Ozzie calmed down in the second.
  18. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    That's a totally legit call, but there's no way Flip meant to do that.
  19. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Just what Z needed.
  20. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    "Take it to the net, take it to the net!"
  21. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Both Sammy and Nabokov took some ridiculous dives on that play.
  22. 1/17 GDT: Sharks 6, Red Wings 5

    Kopecky, that was embarassing.
  23. 1/12 GDT: Dallas Stars 5, Red Wings 4 (OT)

    That fourth line is absolutely useless. All they do is run around not hitting people. It sucks that Ozzie took the loss tonight, but at least it looks like he's getting his game back.
  24. Jiri Hudler

    Eva, you make it very difficult to agree with you on the issue of Jiri Hudler. That being said, Jiri's been awesome all year long. I find it interesting that the work ethic and attitude problems he was said to have a couple years back are absolutely non-existent in his game right now; the guy never stops moving his feet. And for such a small player, Hudler is pretty tough to knock off the puck.
  25. 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Avalanche 4, (SO)

    And we have a hockey game...
