IMO that was on Babcock. That line shouldn't have been out in that situation. Abby, E, Commie, Bert, and Cleary are defensive enough and physical enough to handle the Blues players (that were out).

At the end of the game, with an empty net, he's going to put his best defensive players on the ice.

^^ I'm pretty sure that wasn't a playoff game

Yes, you were right!

If this link works, I believe this is Howard/Crosby (03/22/10)

There is so much crying going on over at the Blues board. They are convinced that the NBC announcers are in love with the Red Wings, that Stuart should be suspended for his hit, and that Howard instigated the fight at the end.

Also that Helm should have had a penalty when Carlo got called, and that Franzen's goal should have been discounted.

Bunch of whiners. I read it too, honestly they're not on our level yet they haven't done s***. They have no right to call us Dead Wings. Go win 4 cups and come back and talk that noise blues fans.

I enjoyed this game. It was hard-fought, physical and there was bad blood. This reminded me of those games between these teams from ten years ago. When the Blues would start to lose, they'd get all sore and start gooning it up. The Blues had tougher teams than Detroit back then but there were some memorable scraps. I loved the response to the physical play from the Wings tonight. This was a good win for the Wings. Their schedule will be friendly down the stretch as they play a home-heavy remainder while their rivals are mostly on the road from here on out.

Best moment of the game was when the JLA music guy played, "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" during the scrum in front of Howard.

DS is part of the "B" team, in a sense. I have always liked him.

Agreed. I am no Pierre fan, but he doesn't bother me really. Its amazing how much more tolerable this team is than the Doc/Edzo/Pierre one.

I really like this team, we have it all this year. NBC pointed out how gritty we are this year, and I agree. Lots of sand paper, as they call it, on this team. We're far from soft, as some people here think.

I think the two straight 2nd round exits are going to help this year in the playoffs. We're more rested.

Anyway, great game!

ericsson standing around like a little puppy dog

why the f*** isn't he getting in there bashing some skulls

Ericsson is playing better with every game and using his body more. He's doing fine, thankyouverymuch. <_<

I'm sorry, I'm must be having trouble seeing, because it looks to me like the big tough Blues have pissy pants when the Wings hit too hard.

I was going to post something funny in retort, but I realized in my attempt that their whining was actually a lot more comedic than what I had planned.

I was at the game tonight, and it was a great game to watch after the first 10 minutes.

- Pavel was the best player on the ice... every shift he was creating harvoc.

- Nick was a very close 2nd to pavs out there... he was genius defensively, shooting the puck well, knocking pucks out of the air, and bbroke up a 2 on 1 in the 3rd which I consider a game saving play

- Jimmy Howard was outstanding again... love the way he got into it at the end

With those positives, I was very disappointed with the Zetterberg line. Hudler could NOT control the puck tonight, and Hank seems afraid to go to the dirty areas to score goals. More than anything, Hank really needs to get going.

Overall great game by the Wings

Lot of bitching about a lack of response to the Howard scuffle at the end there. Overall I think this game was a perfect example of why the Wings DON'T need another tough guy. They matched the Blues toughness PERFECTLY - the only difference was the Blues took stupid penalties and the Wings didn't. The final scuffle was fine by me. I don't mind seeing Howard stand up for himself - everyone else was tied up anyways.

Anyways, it was a really fun game to watch. I was impressed with the effort tonight.

And THIS one, too. :)

Some interesting quotes from the recap:

Stewart was given a penalty for instigating and a 10- minute misconduct, but didn’t regret it because he said Pietrangelo has to be protected.

“I have no problem doing that,” Stewart said. “That was definitely more playoff hockey. Physical from the start. Trying to set the tone against a rival and somebody who you’ll probably face in the playoffs.”

I have no problem with you taking dumb penalties that cost your team the game either, Chris.

“It appeared to me that they thought they could be physical with us,” Detroit coach Mike Babcock said.

This just made me laugh.

Finally, a comparison:

“I think they picked it up in the second period and we got discouraged when they took the lead,” St. Louis forward Patrik Berglund said.

“We played good in stretches, but we crumbled when things got tight,” Blues forward Jamie Langenbrunner said. “We got those retaliatory penalties. That takes away our momentum and gets us out of our comfort zone.”

Verus...

“We have such a calm team,” said Jimmy Howard, who made 21 saves for his league-leading 30th win. “Nothing seems to rattle us.”
