howard was too aggressive on that i reckon. left way too much space for the pass. thats one thing i dont like bout howard, comes out of the crease unnecessarily sometimes

I didn't expect them to win this series, but I didn't expect them to s*** the bed, either.

What's funny is Detroit could be up 3-0 if it were for a couple mistakes in each game, so it's not for a lack of talent that they're down.

Oh, and you can't get to the conference finals with rookie goaltending, not that Nabokov has looked great, either. All three regulation Shark goals were bad goals, IMO.

6 penalties against the Wings, 1 against the Sharks with tons of non-calls against the sharks. Officiating once again decides this game.



all the calls were legit tonight.
ericsson i thought you were better then this.
williams and bert i hope you are not back next season.

Wow...I hate to give up faith...but I seriously don't see how the Wings can win a game this series.

It's embarrassing and the Sharks are the worst divers I've ever seen...but damn if the Sharks didn't kick it up to a whole other level. They are doing to the Wings what the Wings do to other teams.

Not to mention adding Williams and Lebda to the lineup isn't a move for success.

The Wings just had their best chance of the series to win a game and they choked. They weren't fast, they didn't skate like they cared, they had a lot of near misses and Howard was just terrible.

I hate to use this excuse but the Wings just looked out of gas. I'm already envisioning the off-season moves.

I hate that the season is ending, I really do. I got used to those long runs and bragging rights but this isn't like '07 when we could be proud of them even in losing. This series was theirs for the taking and they reverted back to '03-06.

f***. My. Life.

Ericsson got caught down low and it just had to be Marleau and Thornton back at the time.

Christ.

This series exposed what we already knew-- Howard just isn't ready to be a Cup winner yet. Maybe he's just worn out after the stretch of 25 consecutive games at the end of the year. Maybe he just isn't mentally confident (that's what tonight looked like).

In the end Howie lost this game for the Wings.

Anyone else find it hilarious that all of the sudden the Wings are getting penalized left and right? How do you go from being the second least penalized team in the league to racking up penalties like thef****** Ducks?

A pathetic third period by a team that had to win.

Pathetic.

As much as it's easy to blame Howard for that s***ty third goal.. Where was the urgency and pressure by the Red Wings? We let them walk all over us, and it was the whole team's fault (minus Hank)

O.o

That was Rafalski--not Williams on D


It was still WIlliams lame shot form the outside that set up the 2 on 1 rush. God I hope Eaves is OK for game 4, I never want to see WIlliams in a Wings jersey again. Maybe he and Ericsson can get a room in Edmonton or somewhere equally forlorn.

A lazy 3rd period from the Wings that featured 2 SJ goals is what decided this game.

Does anybody on this goddamn team have the balls to get to the front of the net with the puck?

Seriously.

Either they are ball-less wonders or they are so gassed it's a miracle they have been in any of these games.

You don't win along the boards. You gotta be in the middle of the ice. They did it exactly ONE TIME after the first and they happened to score on that ONE TIME.

This team needs an overhaul. They need a 3rd line that can hit some people, score some goals and generally not s*** down its leg. They need to get Datsyuk some wingers who can put the puck in the back of the net. Someone needs to find Franzen's mojo and give it back to him.

And honestly, someone needs to start sacrificing virgins to the hockey Gods to get LIdstrom to come back and not retire.
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Williams was the guy who should've backup the rush of Ericsson and he did until he shot that puck wide. As I said, I dunno what the hell he did after that, because it would've been 2on2 if Williams wasn't out of position.
Detroit Red Wings & Tampereen Ilves forever!

A better team would have locked it down in the 3rd. They sat back and let the Sharks take the game to them and Howard didn't do us any favors. Too many rebounds and soft goals during this whole series. Why didn't Rafalski try to take away the pass on the 2 on 1????

I'm not trying to pin the series on any individual player but not happy right now with those 2. I would love to try and be optimistic about the Wings chances at turning this series around but I can't.

We may actually win game 4, since I expect San Jose to take the game off. But after that, we're screwed.

Then again, San Jose took this game off until Setoguchi's goal.

Babcock made a mistake having Hank take the penalty shot. Who was on the ice for us during that penalty?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Anyone who thinks that Howard didn't lose this game for Detroit obviously never played hockey before in their lives. It happens. I guess you have to be a loser before you can be a winner. Long term, an early exit will be good for this team. Re-commited, Re-energized, Re-loaded. 2010-2011 Detroit Red Wings = Stanley Cup Champions.
Mixed feelings about this
JERSEY SALE!!!!! PM IF INTERESTED!(I have international and red wings jerseys)
