Turnovers are going to continue to kill us. That giveaway goal that MacDonald gifted them in the first foreshadowed the rest of the night. The penalty shot didn't help. We cost ourselves the game.

Just finished the game on DVR. I watched the 1st, was pissed. Started the second then, figuring the night would go like a typical Wings game lately, I fast-forwarded until they scored. Then Pittsburgh scored. So I fast-forwarded, too frustrated to wait out the possible comeback, hoping I would see something to make me stop and watch. Instead, it looked like Pittsburgh just continued to dominate.

Most poorly played game of the season, I think.


EDIT: And did anyone else find it just so stupidly predictable that the backup to the backup's backup broke his fingertip in a pre-game skate? Sigh.

The Wings didn't win, so of course not. :P

Despite all the injuries, if Wings had (at the very least) a 2nd string goalie, they easily win this game. Easily!

Considering that they got a goal off a turn over then crashing the net to get it, I doubt it. They capitalized on our mistakes.

Also I think the 2nd line looked invisible for the most part. Again not a full 60 minute game along with very very bad passing.

I started to notice this more and more even when we were healthy. Passes are not on the stick on the break out. They are a foot in front, in the feet, slow/half ass, or behind. Even on the PP when they do a drop pass it's not even right in the lane of the forward receiving it. Detroit for the majority does not have great foot speed but what makes us look fast is that the passes are usually on the stick while the forwards are in full flight and that hasn't been happening for awhile.

16th or 17th game now with 4 goals against

I count 19

I noticed this and was wondering if anyone else did, or if I'm nuts again. It seemed like they weren't having that much trouble (relatively) getting into the Pens' zone by passing through neutral ice; however, instead of taking that route, which I thought was leading to some decent scoring chances when they did do that, they dumped and chased a lot, which was getting them absolutely nowhere. I noticed the same thing at Vancouver, except at Vancouver they were actually DOING the passing and getting right into the slot, and NOT settling for the dump and chase. I'm not understanding why they didn't do the same thing tonight. Maybe because their passing's a little off, so they didn't want to open themselves up to turnovers? I don't know...it still seems better than just dumping the puck in there and having Pittsburgh come up with it. Anyway, is this making sense at all?

Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Injuries or not, that was one of the most ugly games I have ever watched.
Do the Wings remember how to pass?

Tell that to our backups backups backups. Plus I remember Downey taking out a few players in practice one season.

Our first period suckitude will be the death of us.

Henrik Zetterberg was frustrated that the Wings had nothing to show for 13 first-period shots.

“We’re only talking about that we have to play better defense, better defense, but if we score some goals, we will be right there,” he said. “We’re all good players, we know what to do. Sometimes too much thinking is not good at all, we’ve just got to go out and execute and play good hockey.”

i think its hilarious that in 08 wings had a total of 184 GA and the very next year when brad took over the total GA went to 244. 2.25ga/g to 2.975ga/g

i dont think you can credit the goal tending to the failure


EXACTLY.

Same thing happened when McCrimmon went to Atlanta, I think it was. Their GA increased dramatically from the previous season.

Definitely one of the most frustrating things about this team, especially when they're fully healthy.

What's even sadder is that out 2 bottom lines have been the most impressive game in and game out. Sure they have a breakdown like any other line but they play with passion every night. That's pretty bad when your 3rd and 4th line are out working your top two lines.

Well, true, but in that same breath, the bottom six doesn't have to pace themselves in order to play 20+ minutes every game.
