So you predicted that the Wings would dominate the first period then fall apart?

No, I didn't think so.


I said Howard will need to steal this one if Wings have any chance to gain any points. I also said Wings will not play well. If Red Wings played a full 60 minutes to your satisfaction, then I overestimated your hockey intellegence. I predicted a loss unless Howard played like GOD.

Did Wings win?
No, I didn't think so.

They played like garbage. They didn't START out flat at all. Wound up with the rest of it being similar to what you said though. Way to go. Save the "I told you so".

I love people on this site who predict that the Wings will lose every game (ie. Mindfly) and then when they do occasionally lose they act like they are the mesiah of hockey predictions !

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 !!

I never said they wouldn't come out of the gates flat. I also didn't predict when Frazen would break his stick or when Lidstrom skate would need to be resharpend. I just said unless Howard plays like a GOD, Wings would lose.

We simply watched the first game back from a grueling road trip/back-to-back. The reason I brought it to this thread is because the other thread won't open and a couple of posters (you? - don't remember) said Howard doesn't need to steal this one for Wings to win.

Don't get all defensive. It's just one game. Wings will go on a crazy win streak and separate themselves from the rest of the pack even more. book it :)

exactly. no team has ever won 82 games in a season.

when the wings are playing a good game and are winning we ask ourselves: "how do these guys ever lose a game?"
well... this is how it happens. even if they win 60 games this year they will still lose 22. this game was one of those 22.

The 2nd half of the 2nd period and the 3rd period was probably the worst hockey the Wings have played this season. Just terrible.

Howard didn't have a great game, but he was bound to have a bad one eventually- all goalies do.

Also, Zetterberg's worst game this season. Maybe one of his worst ever? He didn't do a lot of things right out there.

Imo Datsyuk, the 4th line and..Ericsson (!) are pretty much the only ones who looked good.

I hate that we lost like this against the Sharks, but they're somewhat desperate for wins already and the Wings are anything but, so it's not a huge deal.

Hopefully we see a better effort next game though.

One more thing: Franzen's goal was beautiful! Or rather, everything that lead up to it. Datsyuk's entrance of the zone in particular. At that point I felt for sure we'd win the game, don't know what happened..

Absolutely have to agree with this. 2 key giveaways that led to 2 of the Sharks' goals. Just a real bad effort on Hank's part and the rest of the team last night. Look for a much different team out there Wednesday (hopefully! Posted Image)

Can we please get Hudler the f*** away from our team anytime soon? I'm still having flashbacks of his horrible pinch resulting into the the shorthanded goal. We really should've gave him a 2-way contract..... ugh. Overall, bad game for the Wings. I think after the 2 goals within 8 seconds just really shout us down fast. Wings are normally a solid rebound team and we work hard to get the momentum back quickly but last night we just couldn't get it done.

These are "schedule losses" nothing more, nothing less. This happens to the wings every year, always has, always will, until the NHL gets there act together and puts Detroit where they belong-Eastern Conference. No Eastern Time zone team out there can play on the west coast for a week, conclude it with 3 games in 4 nights, which includes coming across the country, playing through jet lag, and play a complete 60 min game all within 36 hours. Wings are fine, will win the division, conference, and cup as this team looks to be a clone of the 08 Champs. :champs:

If they come out with this performance home against nashville tomorrow i'll rip someone apart, that loss yesterday, fine if it was just "one of those games", but the bad habits must not continue and they must play better in every part of the game.

That "blow the whistle rules" need to change, or at least be able to be overturned. Such bulls***.

I don't know why people don't get this but they always suck when they have one day off coming back from the West. Experienced it first hand when they played their home opener in last year's first round. Came back from Phoenix with one day off, looked good in the 1st and then slowly imploded.
