This time we didn't have a 7-1 cushion going into the 3rd and still let in 3 and win ... (in LA on Mon)
Maybe the Coyotes reminded themselves that the Wings can let in 3 goals in a very short time!

Why would you need to make a play when you’re up 4-2, stick-handling at their blue line? Why wouldn’t you put it behind them, go get it and then wear them out down low?” Babcock said. “We’ve been around winning long enough that every guy in this room understands. But obviously I got to do a much better job to get them all to do it, because we’re not doing it. So if we want to be successful in the end we got to get it fixed.”

With this guy at the helm, I still have faith in the Wings. But jesus do the players themselves make it hard to watch sometimes.

Just saw a condensed version if the game and man, the defense really let down Howard, who in my opinion had a real good game. Kindle with a horrible pass and Ericsson acting like a pylon while the coyote was scoring in front of the net!

Did it go something like this?


WTF?!!!! Did he seriously try to jam the remote up his ass?!

if anyone blames Howard for this one they are kidding themselves. Sorry but I know this board has a huge boner for brad Stuart but he's slow behind his own net. Kindl had one hell of a brainfart but that will happen with rookies. I never thought we would miss Rafalski for his D but thats whats happening right now

No I watched it... Yah, 3 out of the 4 goals were not his fault per say (the 3rd one he should have had) but we cannot afford to watch him let in 4 goals every game and have ppl say "But he had no chance". The job of a goalie is to MAKE SAVES to keep his team in the game, and you arent doing that if you let in 4 goals in as many games as he does. That is my ultimate point here... he has not been consistently fulfilling his job of being a goalkeeper

The TEAM has not been consistantly fulfilling his job of being winners. Jimmy was great tonight...everyone else looked slow, lazy and unmotivated. Say what you want about Jimmy this season but last night's loss was not on him!

Bad game.

Bad stretch.

If Detroit plays bad against Edmonton (I'll be front and center for my birthday) I think I'm going to run the bench and punch McCrimmon repeatedly in the face.

I'll be at that game for my B-Day too. Lets hope the Wings destroy them.

Never undersestimate the predictability of stupidity

I think the Wings play a lot better when they are getting f***ed over by the refs.

The first two periods, when the refs seemed to be actively trying to throw the game to the coyotes, the Wings battled through and went up 4-1. In the third where the calls were more or less even, the Wings completely choked and handed the game over to the coyotes themselves on a silver platter.

What a totally dissapointing ending. But that seems to be the Wings MO lately when it looks like the game should be theirs. Go up by a few, to where the game should be completely in hand, then completely give up and go to sleep while the other team embarrases you. Its a great strategy...

how do you spell 3rd period collapse? r-e-d-w-i-n-g-s

Man that was so dissapointing. Ericsson was looking pretty awful there. I could not believe we threw that point away.
Perhaps if Hudler and Berts shootout shots were a half an inch to the left I wouldn't be so distraught on this game, but man. I am not having a whole lot of Stanley Cup hopes this year if we can't fix the basic problem of we HAVE to score 5 goals to win a game. That much weight should not be put upon the forwards.

They blew a 3 goal lead to a desperate team. s*** happens. The Wings record is still near the top of the conference. This happens every March. The desperate teams go all out and the Wings - not so much.

As long as Chicago doesn't catch us, it really doesn't matter. When the playoffs come, we will be ready.

Chill out people. Haven't you seen this movie before?

As long as we continue to get at least one point per game from now until playoffs, we will have a top four seed locked up.

Haha yes, but the video is actually fake. Tosh did a segment on it, decently funny.

There's embarrassing, there's stupefying, there's humiliating, and then there's this. Normally I'm never happy to miss a game, no matter what, but I'm glad I missed this s***.
