Oilers doing us a favour, beating Nashville 4-0 right now.

I'm going to have to not applaud Jimmy. Yeah, he made 45 saves, but I can't recall all that many that were all that amazing. There were a handful, but largely I thought the Wings did a good job making them take ineffective shots. Howard certainly didn't play bad, but this is sort of what we should be expecting from him all the time, more 2 goal games than 3. So I'm glad he didn't suck but I'm witholding hope until I see him string together a few good wins.

As for Ericsson and Kindl, my God they were terrible! What kind of fool pinches that late in the game (Ericsson) and then commits a blatant penalty (Ericsson) a mere minute or so later? Discipline among some of these players is really lacking, we're not used to that as Wings fans I think.

Filppula with every LGW fan's favorite injury, a "lower body injury". Looked like it could be his ACL/MCL.


I hope it's not serious but wouldn't this suggest that Mursak might be coming back if Flip can't play?

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

OK, they've (the VS guys) have spent the entire post game thus far analyzing the Rangers' woes. If they had won the game, do you think they would be analyzing the Red Wings woes? No, I don't think so either.

Well, I mean, the media is supposed to showcase teams and the Wings don't really need that much promotion or exposure.

Yeah they were both awful tonight. Kindl had his worst game ever, turnovers galore, I honestly don't think I'm going overboard when I say he had at least 7 turnovers.

Mursak is still up with the Wings, but I'm not sure if he's ready to play with his swollen toe. Hopefully he's right to go Thursday against Nashville.

Much needed 2 points
Jimmy played well
We got Dats back... In a huge way.
Avery got wacked in the face a few times.

Pretty good night :thumbup:

Strange game but a much-needed win. It was nice to have Pavel back.

I missed the Filppula injury. Hope it's not long-term.

for all the whining about a "prevent defense" when protecting a lead in the 3rd, i'd take that any day over retarded pinches for no apparent reason.

what the hell?

Awful isn't a good enough word to describe their play tonight. Awful to me technically means that you are in awe because of something regardless of whether or not it's good or bad. I feel like we should use a word that leaves no doubt as to how bad it really was, hehe.
