So he figured he would fire the team up by scoring on himself? Everyone getting on Mac has good reason to. That was a completely ridiculous play.. Marleau wasnt even winning the race to the puck.. and if you are gonna charge out dump it behind the net into the corner not into the player.


Without him this game would have been out of hand by the end of the first, i just said he did it on purpose because im not to fond of the Wings play tonight. Its not like the Wings got one back anyway the 3rd period offensive push was futile to say the least.

I've heard that before...



Yeah, I didn't come up with that myself. It just seems to describe their play so well.

Boredom is part of the battle of the every day regular season. The Red Wings are well aware that their job to combat that as much as possible. And so we're back to the classic, "The Wings are too old, too slow, not hungry enough" etc. because boredom can really kick their ass on any given day.

Wasn't a bounce it was a bonehead play but im not going to get on Macdonald he has been the only bright spot for us this game.


Ericsson was just as much or more to blame; he didn't try and force Marleau away from the puck when it became clear MacDonald was going to play the puck.

To blame their struggles this year on boredom is unrealistic. Outside of the the first month of the season, they've been an average hockey team. As much as I hate to say it, they're just not that good this year.

Hopefully I'm wrong and they win the whole thing, but I don't see it.

Wow... According to Babcock, we don't suck! Shock to LGW... I agree with him I thought we played a solid road game against a good team on the back end of a back to back. Shake it off!

Go beat the yotes!

I agree he played well all game except for that. But I've gotta think a team being down by one in the two minutes is gonna have a bit more push than a team that has just watched their goalie give the game away.

Not like it matters.. Seems like the Sharks always show up and the Wings show up in tiny flashes..


On a side note.. I'm sure that there is no actual record.. but Franzen has to far and away have the record for most games without a goal following a 5 goal game.. it's getting redundant now.. he just goes out and floats around the ice..

And I still wanna know why the hell Abby was anywhere near the ice when its 6 on 5 with 2 minutes to go.. :blink:

I agree if they were down 1 it would have a different effect mentally on them.


With games like this all i can hope is that the Wings aren't giving it their all in order to not show their opponents what they can really do in case they see them in the playoffs.

It may not have decided the game but the Joey flub was a dagger. The team still played a pretty solid road game for a back-to-back on a long western road trip. The Sharks seem to take these games a lot more seriously than Detroit. The Wings let their backup play this one.

Lol. You know, sometimes to have enjoyed a game, you have to look it from the perspective of a hockey fan rather than any particular team's fan. And I've gotta say, J-Mac must've finally realized he needed to remind us why he's a third string goalie after such a solid game... because man, was that lol-worthy from a hockey fan perspective.


so true. i laughed too after seeing that play. not at joey though; rather at the whole team. they have no spirit and their play seems stale. it's been this way since the beginning of december.

Exactly. We played well tonight, just didn't have the legs to carry us through it. We just have to chill and move on to the next game. I don't know about the rest of them, but I saw effort tonight, they just didn't seem to have any speed though, and that's essentially what lost the game, Sharks were all over the ice all night, just ready to play.

Feel really bad for Joey. He had played really well until that mistake, which was unfortunate.

He's a better goaltender than some on here give him credit for.

I really do hate always being the one to come to Fil's defense, but Filppula was one of the best players last night. Save maybe one bad defensive play, but I guess he can't be perfect defensively.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Everyone makes mistakes. Nobody can blame him for this loss based on just that. It was the offense that didn't produce, 1 goal won't win us the game when our defense isn't keeping the puck out of our zone giving the the Sharks plenty of opportunity to score.

uh No...not really.

This year he has not played bad...3-4 with a GAA 2.49 is pretty good ... we just cant seem to help him out on the offensive side of things...
for that I feel for him...

but career wise he is 21-42 as a starter.... just sayin'

Well that makes no sense. If they can dominate the league as they did the first 20-30 games then explain why "they aren't that good this year".

Are you saying that the first part of the season was "luck"?
Do or do not. There is no try

they did have a easier schedule at the beginning of the year. Even most users on here said that themselves.
