I noticed our PP seemed to be playing a umbrella style for a good part of the game it seemed like we had 3 players at the blue line, one along the side boards and the other sometimes in front of the net. No down low plays for the most part.

Any way's the PP sucked. Hopefully they can work it out by Thursday.

On another note i thought Kindl played a good game. He jumped in the play, was pro active and I personally didn't notice any glaring WTF moments from him.


What was wierd is that Babs sat Homer during the 4 minute PP at least that's Ken and Murphy said.

I think Kindl has Ericsson's spot now. Not only is he doing the little things right but he is also like you said pinching just a little bit.

Babcock mentioned during the post-game interview that he sat him on purpose just to switch things up.

Seems like the two points they got were an ugly set of points. But whatever. Points are points. Hell I'd be thankful if they were able to get some more ugly goals. Soon they'll have a good game and we'll forget all about this one.

Flight designation N682RW is only for Red Wing 1. Its a private plane.

Damn Rafalski is missed on the PP... it was absolutely horrendous... Modano just isn't a good fit on the pp, but I guess that was one of the promises when he signed here, that he would get pp-time

The first period was awful. After that though, I think things really picked up pretty well for us.

Obviously, the PP needs work but our PK was great.

I also think Howard needs to play the puck more and not cover it up every single time he gets it, he had plenty of time to give it to a player, instead he covered it up for a dangerous defensive zone faceoff, if coyotes wins it and gets a shot off the point that's always dangerous so he needs to avoid that.

It seems like the Wings like to teeter on the border of below average to average when it comes to having a good start. And as much as possible my comment is really just an objective observation. This is the way it's been for years. Not just last season or the year before but also during the year of the cup run and many, many years before that as well. And yeah I know they're not the only team that does that.

But I'm not gonna lie, I get sick of hearing "We didn't get off to a good start" after the game is over.

Yet, as I let go of all of those thoughts, overall I'm very happy they found a way to win.

If a goalie stops a puck and there are opposing players in the immediate vicinity, the goalie freezes the puck. I don't see what it is you're looking for.

yea, most of the times that I saw is Pheonix used their speed to get to the net quickly causing the faceoff. Howard did the right thing instead of throwing the puck to the defensemen and cause a turnover.

The Wings had a short bench though. It makes sense to slow the game down.

Last season Howard wasn't quite in sync with his teammates as to when and where to put the puck back in play. A defensive zone faceoff may not be that much more dangerous in certain situations.
