I just woke up and caught the last 2 minutes and OT. It looked like some of the best I've seen the Wings play and was the most exciting few minutes I've seen in awhile!

I'm glad we ended the losing streak, but there's no reason we shouldn't have blown the worst team in the NHL out of the water tonight. Not to mention, they had injuries.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

He was pretty awful for most of the game.

we have ericsson. thats gotta count for something. rafi is a big player missing for us too. im not making excuses. but ericsson is a liability everywhere on the ice

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Congradulations to the Wings, I'm glad they won, but they will need to be more patient and execute better tomorrow.

Let's Go Red Wings!!!

It's almost hard to believe that I am WAAAYYYYyyy more confident with Kindl out there than Ericsson. Man, he has gone from hopeful to complete suck-balls in two years.

As happy as I am with the win, the Wings need to realize the they are still not playing good. They need to do better but this "we played well" after every loss and now tonight will not fix the problem.

Thanks Offsides

Man, i wouldn't worry too much anymore. that was one of those monkey on our back sort of things. i fully expect detroit to roll over STL tomorrow. needed to get through that adversity.

This I agree with. He has reverted to the big, dumb lug he was last season.

I was cursing Howard all night long for letting in that first soft goal. I mean, what a bad break for a guy that, for the rest of the night, played very well. Hopefully we can carry the momentum into STL.

Is it just me or are the Red Wings the worst team of all time while on the 5 on 3? Seems like they never score.. almost like they have too much space and talent and just end up not doing anything.. Seriously a 1:40 5 on 3 against the worst penalty killing team in the league minus all of their best players.. that has to be an automatic goal..

I am glad they finally won a game at home, but if they played in the first peiod like they did for the last couple minutes of this game then the game would have been over after the first.. but by the time the Wings actually got their act together it was once again time for another average goalie to put in his bid for the Vezina..

Hopefully they can come into the next game and pick up where they left off.. and when Raf is back I fully expect to see Ericsson in the press box.. every damn time he touched the puck it led to an Edmonton chance.. its almost like he thinks he is so much better than he really is.. on offense he takes the puck, carries it into traffic and loses it everytime.. on defense he tries to get cute with it, gets caught and then gives it away.

Franzen seems to show one moment per game where he looks pissed off and fired up in front of the net.. then he disappears and you dont see him again.. I wouldnt mind seeing Modano up on the top 2 lines tbh.. he seems like he has got some jump since he came back, might as well see if he has any offense left in him.

Who's taking bets now on if this win gives the Wings just enough confidence to not show up on time for tomorrow's game?

I'm sorry, but I'm not really impressed with this win. Glad to get the two points, but they played the same game with the same problems that they've played for the last three months. Until I see a team actually playing cohesively out there with a showing of considerable effort at resolving their MAJOR issues, I'm not buying it.

I think Nick would agree with you. He looked surprised, and had to quickly make way for Dats when they announced the 2nd star.
But Dats did make some surprisingly bad passes tonight.

this comes with rafi being out. when hes in and he and nic are manning the blue line, they are much more comfortable and mobile around the points.

meh, ill take it. look at the posts before the game. "win, i dont care how." its not acceptable to play like s*** but we needed to get a win. this won't fly in the playoffs but im just glad we won tonight. get us on the right track babs.

I don't think anyone was "impressed with the win" but we did get the two points like you said. I think the Wings need something to give them some confidence. Maybe this is that start of that "thing". Maybe they go into STL tomorrow and roll over them and realize that they can play better. Or....they go into STL tomorrow and get whipped and get back in the same ditch they dug themselves into. I think this game against STL tomorrow and the game against the streaking caps on Wednesday will tell you about what Wings' team we see the rest of the season as well as what we can look forward to or have nightmares about for the playoffs.

Tonight was not a "quality win" like you said though, it's two points. We are having some major issues as of late but I think they just need a reminder of who they are and what type of hockey they can play.
