Conks was obviously not good tonight, and he would be the first to admit it- - he probably will. This was one of those frustrating games to watch, we get some every year. The good thing out of this is that it will motivate the boys to tighten up and come out full force against the BJ's. But seriously, Cleary NEEDS to be taken off that line... Dats and Z by themselves would be better than with Cleary there. I think the lines for next game should be:

Zetterberg- Datsyuk- Homer
Hudler- Filpulla- Franzen
Bert- Helm- Abdelkator
Cleary- Emmerton- Miller

- - another note, why is babcock not using White on the 5 on 3's with Lidstrom? That gives them more options. Other than that, the Wings are 5-1, so losing like this will do good on the long run.

I really do hate it when Babcock won't play Howard on back to back nights. Especially since he just had 6 days off! It's not like he's 39 years old, he's a kid, he can handle it. I know why they didn't play Conklin last night, it's out of respect for the opponent. As much as they won't admit it, it's just an unwritten rule that you don't put your scrub goalie in net against a s***ty team "just because".

Better beat Columbus on Tuesday or we might need a major shake up :lol:

In other news, Columbus allowed 2 goals in the final minute to lose to Ottawa lmao

If we lost like that against Columbus or Phoenix, then I might be worried.

Lest we forget the 12000-1 beatdowns the Wings have suffered at the hands of the BJs and Preds over the last few seasons. :P

Guys, in good news, the Griffins are up 2-0.

Nyquist has an assist, as does Smith, Nestrasil a G+A, and Aubry looks excellent.

You're going to have those games in every season. As long as they don't happen too often (like they did toward the end of last season), we'll be fine. If we lost like that against Columbus or Phoenix, then I might be worried. But Washington? They're 7-0 for a reason.

Actually it worries me that the Wings didn't get more fired up for this game. I can actually accept a loss like this better against a "bad" team like Columbus when the players might not be 100% focused. Against Washington everyone should be on their toes.

I gotta say though that they didn't look terrible in the 1st and it just seemed like with every goal that Conklin let past him their energy dipped more and more. They got some of it back with the 3-1 goal but then Conklin took it away again with the 4th goal.

It sucks to blame just one guy but really this loss was 90% Conklin. The other 10% is Babcock because I can't figure out why he didn't play Conklin yesterday and Howard today. Makes zero sense and didn't turn out well.

Exactly! Didn't Columbus pummel us something like 9-1 a couple seasons ago?

Remember the St. Louis game last season where we all started rooting for the Blues to hit double-digit goals? That was awesome fun.

Ha, yes! That game was awesome. As a fandom, we just need to learn how to enjoy losses like that more. :D

Beatdowns happen so rarely to the Wings that you do just have to admire it in a twisted sort of way, haha.

I rather the Wings lose like this instead of the games where we control the play all night. Those are the infuriating ones.

What a way to blow all the individual and team stats out of the water. Disappointing night for such a big hyped up game between 2 unbeaten teams :(

I missed it as well. But it looks like we are just laughing it off, it's one of "those" games.
