White has looked comfortable and mobile. Made some good pinches, and outlet passes. Nyquist has looked great. I think he could be a starter this season, but that won't happen. He had a sweet little move for a goal in the second and has made things happen almost everytime he's on the ice.



Wings were pretty laid back until halfway thru the 2nd. Really turned it on and took control of the flow of the game. Tied up 3-3, we're putting the pressure on Toronto. We might catch a break here soon. I think there's 5-ish left in the 3rd?

White hasn't been bad, made a good block in front of Jimmy in the 1st to potentially save a goal.


Thank you!!!

Don't think that'll be a suspension. They weren't gonna let them fight after the final whistle. Oh well, might have been a decent fight.

Two of the goal's on Howard weren't really his fault. That last one I didn't get a good enough look at in the replay. Pretty sure it deflected. If the Wings hadn't f***ed up and bounced on in on themselves it wouldn't have gone to OT anyways.

Saw the highlights of the goals. That was ugly.

Has Howard looked this way the whole preseason? I haven't watched enough of these exhibition games to know.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

White looks awesome... Great pickup! Lidstrom will win another Norris. Leafs stink.

Howard hasn't been playing at a high level. Neither have Kronwall and Stuart. Nyquist is a stud!

Wonder how many games MacArthur will be suspended for the headshot he took on Abdelkader?

I'm very nervous about this Howard talk, the only game I've got to see so far was the one against chicago where Conks played. He didn't look to hot either but I'm sure it's just a little rust for both...

Highlights of the game are on the Wings website.


1st goal Not much Howard can do with a screen in front of him and the scoring player on his off wing below the face off circle
2nd goal Deflected off a Wings player. Looked like he didn't have good position anyway.
3rd goal Kronwall f***ed up bad with a turnover behind the net. Jimmy should of had it as it trickled in on him, he just didn't squeeze hard enough.
4th goal Another turnover behind the net but this time on Lidstrom. Not much Jimmy can do on that.

Besides that 3rd goal you can't really blame Howard.


Pretty slick move on Nyquist part for his goal. He completely deked the guy defending him in the corner, Datsyukian like.

Those "useless scrubs" on Toronto's 4th line made us look pretty bad tonight.

Howard was not the reason we lost tonight. Most of those goals were lucky and 9 times out of 10 would not have gone in the net. One was scored by Emmerton, another was screened by two people battling in front of Howard...there really isn't much he could have done better.
