Just got home from the game. What a sick move by Bertuzzi. Pavel is amazing in person, as was Howard! Great game. The arena was near full, due to the obscene amount of Wings fan.

What!! you only live a block away? how in the heck did you get home so quick? Would take me 4 1/2 hours to get home from
a RW's game.

Yeah, he didn't elevate it as high as he normally does. Smith stayed in the goal well enough too. Usually the goalies tend to over commit and it leaves more of an opening.


Agreed. At full speed it was hard to pick up, but Smith actually looked like me may have anticipated that move, he went into the butterfly and started to lean forward, but when he saw the toe drag he was still in a good enough position to react and push across the crease, barely got his glove up in time. I think that is Pavel shoots it sooner, he still would have beat him.

Ah yeah, I'm pretty sure Smith was also bracing for something crazy, seeing how he did get embarrassed pretty bad in the last shootout. Pavel maybe does that move once a season at the most, I feel robbed to not have seen that one going in. Here's to Pavel giving it another shot at least one more time this season :thumbup:

i feel bad for pavel. i hope this makes him come up with a new sick breakaway move.


Yeah we've seen them score on some solid moves. Nothing we haven't seen before though. It'd be nice if one of them would come up with a new move but they have bigger fish to fry.

Pav's go to move is where he fakes hard to backhand and either shovels it in or quickly brings it back to the forehand. Sometimes he just flat out shoots it. If the moment is right, he'll try the move he did tonight. The Turco-Vokoun-Harding toe drag. He's also pulled off the Linus Omark.

Hudler likes to shoot sometimes. Other than that we've only seen him do a fake to the forehand and then finish with the backhand and he's pretty solid with that move.

Bert likes to go wide a lot. He can then pull off the spin o rama like he did tonight or just shoot it wherever he sees a hole. I like the one where he goes in REALLY, really slow and then stickhandles a storm at the crease.

Zetterberg's main move is where he fakes the forehand and then finishes with the backhand. He's only pulled off the Nilsson-Forsberg move twice when it counts. Other than that he's scored some pretty awkward shootout goals.

I think the newest move (as in, the move that's the newest to Wings fans) is the one where Bert goes in really slow. I hope one of them comes up with something fancy but like I said, they got bigger fish to fry.

On Smith's save on Pasha's try:

Smith didn't bite as hard as Turdco or Vokoun. Plus Smith is a big, lanky, long-reach guy. Size had a lot to do with it too, and you can't coach size.

At least for tonight, Detroit is alone at the top of the NHL standings.

Any win is a good win.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Highly doubt that. There were probably a majority of Wings fans there than Yotes fans. You could clearly here the LGRW chant in the 3rd.

A little unprofessional but understandable. As soon as I saw Pav do the toe drag I thought Smith was done. He wasn't. He made a ridiculous and spectacular save. If it was my job to do homer commentary for the Yotes I definitely would've been tempted to say something like that.

It almost sad to see Datsyuk miss on that move, it is one of those legendary moves. Makes it ok though because of how awesome Smith had to be to stop it. Bertuzzi is on fire lately, hope that continues.

well it sucked to see the PP do so awful live, at least when its on tv you think maybe something in the background is messing it up :P that was my second shootout in phoenix and we've won both. it was pretty nerve-wracking, especially the 4 on 3 towards the end of OT. the place absolutely exploded when bert got the spin o rama, and overall a great win, especially for my dads birthday. jimmy was outstanding too, and even got a chant going in the arena.

no it was all the wings fans booing/laughing at him

That's what I thought!!!! Except when PHX plays at home against us, it's more of our fans there regardless.

Smith should have been pumped he saved that shot, it was an amazing move and save. Hell everytime I see Datsyuk in the shootout he always gets the goalie in a bad position and then he either scores or misses.

Agreed.

Datsyuk got him doing the Luongo belly flop, but he bailed himself out by keeping the glove up and open.
