Wings had the 8th lowest goals against in the league this season. The defense last year was bad because they were relying on offense. This year it's been pretty good overall.



you can add also that 1st half of the season they were due to known reasons very poor on D, yet they finised strong in D related statistics.


series is not over yet, and there is still time for maya prophecies so no reason to panick:)
Crosby’s frustration level seemed to reach a boiling point in the final seconds, leading to him cross-checking Zetterberg in the back in front of Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard(notes).

“I knew it was him without turning around,” Zetterberg said.

This has nothing to do with Jimmy Howard standing on his head all season, including the playoffs?

Isnt he up for the Calder just for that reason?

Lets look at the facts objectively, our D has been bad and definatly not play off caliber for a few years. I love Lids and company, but they are not good right now. Its time to upgrade.

While I agree that we should have scored, it was moreso Brzygalov and some unlucky bounces rather than a lack of effort.

It was some unlucky bounces, but I also feel like the Wings should've had two guys planted just outside the crease the whole time. I think Homer was in his usual spot, but otherwise players kept sort of flying by the net, and the timing never worked out. They should've been outnumbering guys down low.

I honestly cannot name one player wearing the Red and White that I feel has played well today.

So many bipolar fans on this forum... gtfo

The Wings are still in this.

LETS GO WINGS!
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Sorry but the game is still not over and while I *may* be a little TOO optimistic at times, there is 20 mins left and this is hockey where anything can happen.

LET'S GO RED WINGS LET'S GO!!!!

Are you really going to attribute all of that to howard's play?

Yes, of course he was very good this season. But so was the team defense.

The points you make at the bottom of your posts aren't facts, they're opinions. They can't be looked at objectively.

Bertuzzi has played pretty well this series. He hasn't scored, but he's not the issue. Perhaps it's time for him to net a couple.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

I'm not saying they are not in it. Just that I haven't been impressed by a single one of our players today.

Yes he could. In my opinion, the only reason we lost the cup last year was because of him and his turnovers in games 6 + 7. And here he is, doing it again.
First goal was because he couldnt shuffle the puck up the boards and instead turned it over. Their 4th goal was because he dicked around holding onto the puck too long after the faceoff and not passing it or clearing it fast enough, which caused PHO to hold it in the zone in the first place. THEN he turns it over again and gives them another gem of an opportunity to get another goal...

BENCH STUART NOW ! !


Yes, because we have so many quality defensemen waiting in the wings. Lebda or Meech are the answer. Yep. <_<

I'd say Eaves and Abby have.

Agreed. Booing is really pathetic, I don't care what the score is, I'd never boo my own side.

People forget there is a Game 7. We lose that one, then people can go mental. Yeah we'll lose this stupid game today, but there IS another oppertunity.

I'd rather them boo like Red Wings fans that care, than hear them silent like a Raptors crowd that doesn't really give a f***.

Franzen is nowhere to be seen right now... We really aren't playing that bad, they are just taking advantage of their chances.

Yeah, let's single out Flip when he's been a force all series.

We shouldn't bag Bertuzzi or Cleary who haven't combined for a single freaking goal...

:rolleyes:

You are correct. The blame is to be spread, not just piled on Flip. But, if you the watched his fantastic play in the 1st, then his play in the 2nd, the contrast is very noticable. Just wondering where 1st period Flip went.

shots from the point is good effort? wheres the cross seem passes?

they took a shot and went for the rebound thats not how you run a 5 on 3.

how big of a difference would this game be if we scored 1 or 2 on the PP?
