So very strange that the one team the Wings can't beat just so happens to be the worst team in the NHL. No surprise that they lost in the shootout though; Jimmy is no good at it and even though the Wings have two good shooters, Pavel and Willy never score in the same game.

I'm sure starting Dubnyk was a calculated move by Quinn though, he knows terrible no-name goalies always go Vezina-mode on the Wings.

Even though they managed to squeak a miracle point out of this one, it was a pretty lousy game. They'll have to do a lot better against the Canucks.

Again, shootouts and penalty shots are the exact same scenario. you're just even more pissy than normal that Flip has better statistics in this regard than you thought.


cool, let me go check that stat for the rest of the wings team real quick

...oh wait, no one tracks that stat because no one combines them.

welcome to the real world. hope that helps.

Okay, so where is the logic in not combining them? Why can't they be combined?

Are they not the same thing?

i dont know why all u guys are getting on babs' ass over who he put in the shootout. Its lilja's fault, he sets it up. nonetheless, whoever said before the game that they would be cardiac kids was almost right, I though u were a genius at the end of the third.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I'm happy with 3 points in the Alberta games.

Typical game from a team already out of the playoffs like Edmonton. They can't win when it counts, only when there's no chance. The Leafs are winning now too.

Yea nice going there 29th and 30th overall teams. :thumbdown:

LOL indeed, Wings gotta be the best team in the league at shooting themselves in the foot.

At least this L loosens their butt holes for the pulverizing they will receive Saturday night.

I'm just telling you why Babcock picked Filppula. After Datsyuk, Williams and MAYBE Bertuzzi (though when was the last time he scored a goal), Filppula is the best option. Is he 1 for 5 in shootouts? Fine, but it's hardly the entire picture. Miller is 100% in shootouts. Maybe he should go first every time?

Fine, but it's hardly the entire picture. Miller is 100% in shootouts. Maybe he should go first every time?

I don't think it really matters who he puts in that third spot, the options aren't very good. Pavel and Willy are both shootout aces but they always seem to alternate shootouts that they actually score in, so after Jimmy lets a couple in and the third shooter is stopped it's over. Bert was good for a while when he was hot, but as soon as everyone (including Willy) got healthy he went back to being ice cold.

I'm fine with the pick, couldn't be any worse than Hank or Bert in lazy and sucks mode, although I would like to see Franzen get a go at it.

Well, that brings the Wing's record to 2-4 in games that I've gone to.

I miss Zetterberg's domination. What the heck happened to this guy over the past year?

It was a fairly exciting finish though. My voice is gone from that.
