So what is Z's injury from the Olympics, anywho? He was grimacing quite a bit at times and definitely wasn't skating like himself.

I agree that Hank was a bit fortunate to be in a position to make the play off the failed shot attempt, but Willy was upright and had his stick on the ice and put it home, nothing lucky about that. A better goalie would have probably tried to block the pass that skirted inches in front of his pads through the crease though.

Overall Hank had an okay game if you ask me. He made one ugly turnover that resulted in one of Ladd's goals, but he was generally good defensively and did well on the PK. He had two assists, but he still doesn't look very dynamic, shifty, creative, whatever word you want to use out there when he was the puck.

It was great seeing Williams go to the net like that... hopefully that encourages him to to it more often.

I honestly wouldn't be too surprised if Hank has had some lingering injury from last season...Just doesn't look like himself out there.

And Cristobal Huet is their goaltender...



And don't forget Hossa, I think someone has a :evil: voodoo doll full of pins with a #81 on the back.

it wasn't the BEST game they could have played but you're being a little over critical I think. They beat arguably the best team in the league and at times showed complete dominance over them. They are starting to roll, it will only get better.


"AT TIMES" is th problem.

Finally finished watching the game, had to DVR it. I'm still waiting for the world to end. I can't believe we got a goal called back in our favor :shock: What an awful call it was to, but were owed many, many more.

Glad to see the guys finishing some of their chances, Fil actually scored going to the net. Datsyuk was great. Z made some nice plays as well. Bert had a good game before he folded up.

I still hate the way this team plays with a lead, it makes no sense. Our team is not set up to play prevent defense, I wish they'd stop trying. I'm glad there wasn't 5 more minutes left in that one.

Jimmy has not been as strong since we've returned from the break. Without him we have no goaltending, so if anyone reading this is the religious sort? Please pray for Jimmy and the Wings :D

I can't believe the Hawks didn't take a flier on Roloson? They can't be serious about putting Huet in goal for a meaningful game can they? I guess they're going with the rook? I guess we're in the same situation if Howard gets injured or starts feeling the pressure.


Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

If the Wings won't make it in, I'm rooting for Phoenix all the way.


Same here. I'd want a Phoenix/New Jersey SCF just to see how low the ratings could possibly get.

Just watched the game over at my friends house (taped the game). What a game! First period I thought we got out played pretty good but the second was great! This is a nice win for the Wings, much needed win.

Tomorrow's game against the Flames is going to be huge. The Wings have a chance to go up 3 points on the Flames with another game against them one week from today.

I'm not sure if a 40 year old goalie would have been the answer for them.

Though at least the Wings are not paying Osgood $4m.

No you have to go one step further.

A Phoenix/Ottawa SCF would do that trick one better. :hehe:

Why?...It's these low ratings that brought about the salary cap, and revenue sharing so worthless teams that are "bobbing turds" in a toilet can survive in todays NHL.

More poor ratings would only = Gary B getting more support from the collective whole (read BOG) to be their savior <_<

What, don't you want to see the Phoenix Coyotes playing a daytime NBC game in the WCF?

I can just see the hype for that s***. :lol:

Ya know - you're probably right on that one...Just this once would Bettman put enough pressure on NBC to air ads to promote upcoming games during prime-time tv (think of the preacher heading outside from the parish, and standing in the middle of the interstate to preach while cars whizz by)...Can't let their precious baby go unoticed :rolleyes:

Separated shoulder lingering, IMO. Those injuries take a while to come back from completely. Cleary looks to be having the same kind of problems.
