We had home ice tho. Even if we tie it up 2-2 they still have home ice.

I'm afraid the fat lady is warming up :(


And so you're trying to give me reasons why we probably can't come back.

Just stop watching now. You obviously don't have the stomach for it.

You're probably one of those that gave up on this team at about the 50 game mark too? Its 2-1 and we still have one at home. I don't know about you but I've seen this team win 3 of 4 about 3432 times in my 20 years as a fan against better teams that these g uys !

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Way to s*** on the fans Wings. Try like hell to score a goal with 10 seconds left, but when the game is on the line with 10 mins to go, no where to be seen. What a joke!

How can we be behind 2-1 to a team that has Matthew Lombardi for a number one center?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

This wasn't a good game. That said, we went down 1-2 against Anaheim last playoff season and we won.

Some of you are downright pathetic. If you're so quick to insult and disrespect the players whenever they don't win, then you should consider either finding yourself a different team to root for or solving some of your personal problems.

I'm confident they'll come back to win.

They had Osgood who turned it on in the playoffs and stopped pucks.. howard has a 4GAA and cant stop a beachball... it's a huge difference they also had hossa, hudler, samuelsson....give ya head a shake ffs

Miserable effort. Cutesy passes, no consistent forecheck, too much play from outside the circles. It's not a coincidence that the Wings' best scoring chances from this game and in general come from hammering the Phoenix defense on the forecheck and then crashing the net.

Home ice doesn't mean crap anymore. Hell, every series was 1-1 up until this point. So every home ice team has ALREADY LOST home ice until tonight.

I think it's time for Lebda to get a chance in this series.

Thanks for all your contributions over the years Nick, but it's time to step aside.

Ummm...what?

Team played like s***, period. Top to bottom. Played like a bunch of *******. And Howard hasn't given the Wings they saves they need.

Either there is a huge shift in the series in Game 4 where the real Red Wings show up or this series is over in 5. That's not being negative, that's being honest.

Being a fan does not entail putting on blinders. We call them as we see them.

Talent wise the Wings could still win this series.

But not how they played today. Today was their chance to take a hold on the series. They looked uninspired and played terribly.

When they finally got something going Howard let in the World's Softest Goal on the short side and they died until the last 2 minutes of play.

Nobody played a full 60 minutes of solid hockey on this team today.

Unless they play better on Tuesday they won't win this series.

Lidstrom wasn't doing so well. I mean -3 yeah, but you could see that he had some problems even without looking the plus-minus. Didn't make mistakes with the puck but the Coyotes forwards just seemed to have chances by winning him on 1on1 -battles.

Bertuzzi wasn't good either. Didn't play physical at all. Kinda floated around there, got about four great scoring chances, but didn't manage to put one in.

Cool, now time for some unbiased analysis from Mickey Redmond and Bernie Smilovitz' unlimited hockey knowledge for one final postgame kick in the teeth. Oh and that horse Katrina Hancock to boot too! Awesome!

Because it isn't sheer talent that will win this series. It's effort -- and Lombardi has had it in spades.

Remember when the Wings beat the Pens 5-0 and then 2 games later the Pens won the Stanley Cup?

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

The Wings are playing like crap but I've never seen the puck bounce to a team like I have in the first three games. Coyotes seems to get every puck and scrum and come out with it on their stick.
GO Wings, GO Blue!

:ranting:
Well, this certainly didn't do anything for my shaky faith in Howard, did it. One quick one in the first 30 secs of the first. Another one in the last 30 seconds. Then he lets in the back breaker after we start to show life again. Unreal.

Overall, we showed about maybe 20 mins of effort in this game. I just don't understand what happened to the hitting once it showed that it was working. We hit. We score. Simple as that. We stop hitting... we don't score.

Now, of course, we can hear all series about how "the heart of the Coyotes can't play for them right now, but the team is going out to win it for him". :rolleyes:

There had better be a damn sight better effort on Tuesday or as ol' Uncle Owen Lars used to say, "There'll be hell to pay". (Though I think that was about having the moisture vaporaters repaired up on the South Ridge). :hehe:
