They did well to pull out that win, but they need to play some frikking d in front of Howard.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Glad to see a win. Even though their performance was schizophrenic at times, we still got the two points without rising blood pressure in OT.

Fun fact....Calgary up 2-1 towards the end of the 1st.

I guess it comes down to how you define soft. Cleary is out there hitting guys and not afraid to stick his nose anywhere. Bert couuld be more physical, given his size. Zetterberg's not afraid to go to the high traffic areas either.

Honestly none of those guys should be dropping the mitts unless it's absolutely called for.

Anyone else in favor of a Lilja-Ericsson trade?

Would have been after that horrid giveaway in OT last night.

Great overall road game by the Wings; there were a lot of goods that I noticed, and some bads.

- Pavel Datsyuk is the man... IMO he is the best hockey player in the world (yes better then Crosby because Pavs has better dekes, tries more, and is a hell of a better back- checker)and the guy shows up night in and night out... gotta love that about Pavs
- Great game by Kronners!! Its no coincidence that I have thought Kronners has really stood out last night and tonight and it is because Babs finally put him and Stu together. I love this pairing and I feel very comfortable when they are on the ice as a unit to defend; another great game by both and they better stay together
- another solid game by the Captain; no shock there
- Franzen was a bit better tonight, but he needs to learn how to handle some passes better
- Solid game by Howard which was nice to see 2 nights in a row

Now the bad:
- Zetterberg was TERRIBLE. Not just this game either, but he has been "off" the past couple weeks. To make it worse, Babs makes that line which was HORRIBLE I have always, and still do, hate that line. Hank looked tired all night, Cleary looked lazy and Bert seemed a little too slow.
- the Filpulla/ Modano/ Hudler line was way too quiet for my liking all night
- what does this tell us? Babs has some line changes to make. I read he wants to have home lines and road lines, which I like the idea of so I think the road lines should be:

Hudler- Datsyuk- Homer
Filpulla- Zetterberg- Franzen
Cleary- Modano- Bertuzzi
Miller- Draper- Helm/Eaves/Abdelkator

Hudler plays so well with Pavs and seems to not be productive enough without him so why not keep him with Pavs. I think this is the best lines if babs doesnt wanna play Pavs and Hank together on the road. Overall, great weekend by the Wings, led by the Datsyukian Great and the Captain. I am going to the game Wednesday on my bday, so hopefully the magician and his Wings can keep the magic going

I missed the two previous games but in tonight's game Mo looked invisible. The same half-assed games I remember from the beginning of the season. So hopefully it was just tonight that it was even more apparent.

Again since I missed the two previous games I thought the Cleary-Z-Bert line moved in the right direction. Moving Mule off that line seemed to give it a bit of a spark with Cleary on it.

I just love the 4th line.... it will be hard to sit anyone on the 4th line once Eaves gets better. Maybe Mo gets put back into the scratch rotation.

Madonna hasn't done anything right since his first shift of the season, where he scored a goal.

The injury hurt his chances at developing chemistry with the team, but the whole signing has just been an utter failure.

I still feel that money would have been served better elsewhere, even if it meant just freeing up cap space and not spending it on anyone.

Ville Leino with a friggin hat trick tonight in Philly. ugh.


I'm a Flip fan, but where has he been? I feel like I haven't seen that guy since January.

Absolutely agree. Unless he suddenly turns it on in the postseason, signing him has been a waste of time and money.

Why is Ericsson near the point?


Mickey seemed to think it was because nobody else was out there to take the man. They both suggested Zetterberg needed to clear that puck. So for once, it might not have been Ericsson's fault.

"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.

Ohh my Goodness.. I just saw Datsyuk's goal. How does he slide by each of those players and manage to score? Inhumane or magician are the two perfect words to describe him and that play is an example of his finest! You seriously cannot go wrong buying a #13 jersey.

i know im gunna get blown up for this, but Zetterberg has been declining since 08. He hast made me say wow once this year, his hands are sub par, just totally un impressed by him. dont get me started on Franzen even though he was ok tonight.

And when you know what both of them are capable of, it's scary, frustrating and sad. :(
