I'm happy we're winning. We always play well in the regular season. Grit is most important for the postseason because its so important to win the puck battles in the corners, and to wear the opposition's defenseman down physically. Make them get rid of the puck before they want to. When you're passing with a forechecker coming at you, turnovers are more likely to happen.

I'm happy we're winning, but the post-season is the real test for the Detroit Red Wings.


I agree with this. It feels good to see them win right now. At the same time, in order for them to be unquestionable cup contenders in this competitive league today, I feel like they're going to need another guy who can play tough on the puck down low and create space for everyone else.

Best player out there tonight :thumbup:

Would have loved to see a penalty shot, but on second thought, I don't want to see Pav deke Rolle right out of his jock.

If I hear "stretch pass" again I'm going...well, I haven't figured out what I'm going to do, I just don't want to hear "stretch pass" again. It's this games "active stick".


The funny thing is, the color guy called them out for it in the first, then they praise it in the second!

Howard continues to play well.

In past years, we've blown leads before with sloppy plays and him giving up untimely goals. He made some big saves late in the game when we had the PP.

You really have to play the PP as you normally would, and the Wings didn't. That's why we gave up so many chances. Otherwise, teams would kill penalties like that all the time.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

NHL.com seems to confuse Jonathan Ericsson with Loui Eriksson as they've given a title "Brother Loui" for Big E's goal highlight.

I like w`s, don`t care how we get them, we are piling them up right now, I am happy !

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Homer's goal was delicious! I wonder what Bert was saying to Stamkos after he took the high stick?

I will be streaming this game at http://freeredwings.tv.


Btw, I can't thank you enough for livestreaming the game, the quality of your livestream is amazing, no one comes close to your stream. Without your work, I'd be stuck with grainy feed ... thanks a million :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Especially enjoyable when we win like we did today !!

I'd like to know that too. Especially when it wasn't Stamkos who highsticked him.

Is it sad that I've watched the replay of the Holmstrom goal about 15 times so far and I still can't get enough of it?

Two really exciting playoff-like games and wins against the East this past week. The Red Wings pretty much dominated the play tonight outside of the penalties that got the Lightning some momentum in the second. Filppula is an incredible player right now -- love how aggressive and persistent he is offensively. The top two lines have some solid chemistry and production going, which obviously correlates with a long winning streak.

Defense is so much better this year. Shots against are way down and Jimmy stops almost all of them regardless. I'm a little concerned with him wearing down, but he's on fire and points are crucial with no separation amongst teams. Kronwall has developed into an all-around terrific d-man. His defense is excellent this season. Ericsson and Kindl both had really strong games too.

Pierre is still a total ****** and Stevie Y is still a Red Wing no matter what. Good to see him back home.

I fully agree with everything you just said, especially the second part.

We won and I don't see that trend being broken more often than not.

Pfffft. I'd like to see that all day long!

Not at all. It was a very pretty goal, which is extremely rare when it comes to Homer. :)
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

This game was awesome to watch. The game last Wed was amazing to be at. I am really loving how the Wings are playing right now and Jimmy cannot get enough praise for what he is doing right now. I will actually give Ericcson some credit as that goal was nice but he turned around and turned it over 10 seconds later that gave the Bolts a scoring chance... that is what drives me bonkers about him.
