And thats why we don't play Ozzie :)
Saw that coming a mile away that play beats Ozzie every time.
Not like the offense or defense did anything to try to win it though
If you guys think .880 save percentage is good then sure he played great. Loss was coming in the shootout anyway
Rest up


Therein lies the true fan.

Never have hope in your 390+ win goaltender. No matter what always doubt him after winning two cups as a starter here.

Good to know you are showing us all what it means to truly be a fan.

Why the he'll is everyone ripping so hard on Osgood? He played a solid game for his first start back, and the Wings got 5 of 6 points on the trip.

Kinda weak goal for Ozzie to give up after a pretty solid game by him :thumbdown:


Yeah, the fact that the puck was coming at 90mph and was about 10 feet away from him by the time he could possibly be in front of it makes it a weak goal. I mean he had so much reaction time. He should have just KNOWN.

Of the three goals on Ozzie, the first was a bad turnover by Stuart and missed coverage by LIDSTROM, allowing for a deflected shot. The second was practically Helm scoring the goal. The third was a bad pass by Lidstrom in the offensive zone and piss-poor effort by the team on the backcheck, allowing for a 3-on-2 chance.

Ozzie made a bunch of big saves throughout the game, and the score could have been much worse. If the team played at all well tonight, it's a win.

He's the backup goalie. After a long stretch he played a really solid game and made big saves and gave the team a chance to win. That's great.

Jesus you guys aref****** sad. Ozzy plays well and you still have to rip on him. It's pathetic.


Nope, I'm not ripping on him. Just pleasantly surprised that he didn't suck. Of course he didn't get the win, but I never expected that.

I honestly think the defense was as good as it could have been tonight.

The offense was terribly underwhelming, however. No idea why Franzen called for a pass through 3 King players. That was stupid.


That's what I meant.

Tonight, the offense played like crap all game. They usually play better when Howard is in net, granted Ozzie rarely plays anymore.

But when he does, the team doesn't fully show up.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Using a stat to try to prove that he didn't play a great game only shows that you either didn't actually watch the game or you're an idiot.

OT and Ozzie don't mesh well. I thought the same thing (we will lose) once it went into OT. Going side to side has never been one of Ozzie's strong points and you can expect plays like that during OT.

EDIT: That goal reminded me of Deadmarsh's OT series clinching goal years back. Except this time Ozzie didn't have his legs in the air.

Wings got dominated in the faceoff circle tonight. 40 wins for the Kings, 22 for Detroit.

Wow. I didn't know the kings were that good in the circle.

I'm actually looking forward to the day when Ozzie retires. Not because I don't like him - on the contrary, I'm tired of seeing him blamed for everything under the sun. He deserves better.

Decent game by Ozzie, got a point at least. At least Howard gets some rest for San Jose.

I love Ozzie, but this should be his last season.

Bulls***. The wings had slightly better chances than the Kings and the other goalie was slightly better.

True. Personally I think Detroit needed a game where their goaltender doesn't put on a clinic (and despite Osgood playing well, he didn't put on any kind of clinic out there) and make up for their mediocre play.

Bulls***. Wings got outworked for a lot of this game.

Ozzy had more big saves than Quick did.

I think Ozzie played well for his first time back after an injury. Honestly, I didn't expect a win tonight, and was happy it went into OT. Not because it was Ozzie in goal, but because he'd be rusty. He needs to play more shifts, more often, to keep his skills up. After tonight's performance, I hope Babcock feels more confident playing him.
