Why the long passing?? Are we too slow to play a short passing game?? Even for a little bit.. These long passes get picked off like a Lions QB. Why does it seem we can't see what is in front of us when a pass is attempted?? We just seem FLAT. Very frustrating game.

I feel like I'm watching a Lions game...it appears like they are playing with 6 and we are playing with 4...they are everywhere, puck is in open ice and a Pen is the 1st to touch it...no anticipation on our end. If we can't step it up then this game is over and a game 7 is a strong possibility.

Still cheering here and trying to keep hope alive for this game...not yet worried about the series but that could end soon..

Somebody needs to step up. I think the knock on hossa is unwarranted. I dont' see a forward generating more chances and looking more dangerous than hossa.

All the odd man rushes were a direct result from the D-men pinching or taking a stupid shot when a pen was right on em.

I think babcock should just say "f*** it, go play and have fun. Stop playing not to lose; play to have fun."

Just win at home.

That's all I ask.

Rumor alert: the next 3 games will be played Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Get Hossa off Flip's line. At least Filppula is TRYING. I honestly couldn't say the same for Hossa. What a worthless...


See, I think this is constructive. I'm sure you won't go search, but I have posts all over the place on this. Flip can make plays and has made Hossa a game 4 star plenty of times, but he can't do that if Hossa isn't willing to actually play with his line mates. As long as Hossa continues to be an ineffective puck hog, why waste Flip on him? Think what Flip could do with Hank or even Pav come Saturday. Thing is, will Babs shift things around? I think he is far too stubborn with line combos. When things are falling apart or stagnant, you simply have to shake things up. Not just random combos, but put the better performing players on higher lines and the lower performing players on lower lines. Homer for example, belongs on the 4th line. He is not helping the skills guys and is more a liability. We can barely keep the puck, so a net camping expedition really isn't needed right now. Hossa - he needs a talking to.

LOL Without Hossa last year you wouldn't have made it to the finals.


one player does not make a team..we were already playoff bound before he arrived anyway.
but I am glad to see he's working out well for you guys though.


good night..good luck guys.

Do something Hossa!! You're going to look like a moron if we don't win the Cup.


If/when the Wings win, it will be DESPITE Hossa, not because of him.
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

They are playing like complete and utter s***. Horrible effort by the guys. Turnovers galore. It needs to stop NOW. They have to play their best period in the 3rd coming up.

With all that being said, wouldn't be surprised if the Wings scored two early in the third and got back in it. Hopefully a fire has been lit under them.

God I wish we had someone blocking shots. It seems like the Pens are able to do it. Our PP is beyond pathetic this series.


I wouldn't mind seeing Osgood blocking some shots either.

Seems like he plays better when everyone criticizes him.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It'd be nice to have a player like 08 Marian Hossa. 09 Marian Hossa sucks ass.


It's the same Hossa. Hangs on to the puck too long around the perimeter while everyone else stands and watches. It's just that he can get away with it in the regular season because the intensity isn't as high.

I know teams can petition to get names on the Cup; if the Wings win, can they petition for Hossa and Rafalski to be left off?

Our guys are dead physically and mentally. 4 games in 6 nights is a fact and it is showing its ugly head tonight. Our guys have played hard and deserve a tonne of credit for playing this well considering the circumstances.

He's been a ghost. Every time he's touched the puck lately it's been turned over or absolutely nothing happens. He's been only slightly less of a non-factor than Hudler.

... Has Hudler even played in this series? Get him OFF Zetterberg's wing and get Cleary back up there.

Cleary and Helm are the only players interested in actually conducting a forecheck and finishing their checks.... If I see another Wings' forward curl off from an easy check to finish on a dump-in I'm going to go mental.

I know. I agree, Hossa and Hudler are looking foolish. Hossa also isn't completing his checks, almost like he wouldn't want to hurt the feelings of old teammates. He will look like quite the goofball if he loses the cup to the team he left.

He said it was because Ab's wasn't very good on the Wing, much better at Center, and Leino brought more to the table as a Winger. At least I'm pretty sure what he said this morning/afternoon.


Well then he's getting outcoached, cause Leino hasn't been bringing s*** to the table

Honestly guys, some of are saying the series is over? FFS come on, the wings are still up 2-1 in the series and there is still a period left.


Exactly, going back 2-2 isn't no big deal, just win our game in Detroit and steal one in Pittsburgh. Wings in 6
