Coyotes? If we can somehow catch Chicago then we could get 2nd if Vancouver slows down. Extremely unlikely, but we definitely aren't catching the Coyotes.

There's no chance to catch Chicago. 5th place is where we'll probably finish, and I'm ok with that, put the pressure on the other teams this playoffs.
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
Pistons

By no means do i expect to catch Chicago. But if we're talking about who we want to win the Van/Pho game, that's the scenario that comes into play.

finnish wing- if we passed chicago and vancouver slows down, we would get 2nd since phoenix has to stay in 4th because they are in the same division as san jose. Division winners get the top 3 spots.

Some people have been complaining about bert, I think he saved our bacon in december and lately is playing well. Recently I think he's picked up his speed and is going to the net more. Yes, he gives it up more than I'd like but I think he brings an intangible physical dimension this team needs.

I would not be opposed to bringing Helm up to the 3rd line and dropping Williams to the 4th.

I'm suprised there's less than 400 posts. The Wings gave up a 4 goal lead, that's when LGW usually goes into melt-down mode. I fully expected to return to see a 800 post thread :P

Yeah I didn't remember that somehow.

Man what af****** game.

Bertuzzi has no hockey intellect.

Franzen needs to finish on that one shot.

Howard was awful.

Defensive breakdowns were ridiculous.

Offense was in Edmonton's zone all night.

Bleh.

I didn't see it, but I'm assuming this is basically how the post-game conference went:

Reporter: "What is your take on giving up a four-goal lead?"

Babcock: "Well, nobody ever likes it when that happens."

Reporter: "What was your take on Jimmy Howard tonight?"

Babcock: "I thought Howie played unbelievably incredible, one of the best performances I've seen. Too bad the team let him down by only scoring five goals and allowing 26 shots, most of which were poor scoring chances. Osgood should have done more to stop Edmonton from getting the chances they had."

It probably would have been, had Edmonton completed the comeback...

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Aw c'mon, I thought that was pretty funny :)
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

When's the last time you've seen a goalie give up his 3rd goal on under 20 shots, after having already given up 2 in under a minute, two of which were due to bad decision making, and being the primary reason a team that was up 4-0 and dominating to being up 4-3 and barely holding on score-wise and in terms of the play. When's the last time you've seen a goalie give up two weak goals in the first five minutes of the game three games in a row and no get yanked in any of them?

I've never seen that happen with any other goaltender or coach. Babcock and Howard is the first occurrence I have EVER seen of it.

I was sitting in row 20 of section 203 C. On the winning goal, I didn't see Stuart tip the shot, it looked to me like Dats just threw it on goal and Deslauriers whiffed on it. When I saw the replay, I thought for sure it would be called back.

And we won.

I meant other than this past game. And we won, DESPITE Howard's play. Because we scored FIVE GOALS.

Teams that don't score five goals don't win games when their goalies have save percentages of 80%.
