is this team f***ed without lidstrom?


No. It's a coincidence. We've seen them play like this with Lidstrom in the lineup. They've just already checked out for the weekend, and are playing down to a terrible team. It's a pattern with them, Lidstrom or not.

They are lazy without him. Just like when Dats sat a few weeks ago. No excuses for lazy ass play.

Oh well. Sometimes teams play bad games. It's why the 2002 Wings didn't go 82-0.


:lol:

Good one Crimson.

Did the Canadiens perhaps hang a big banner outside the entrance to the arena that said welcome to Long Island and Nassau County Coliseum?

Howie hasn't been dominant, but the defense hasn't been helping him.

It's just horrible 2 were on Jimmy 2 were on the D. On that 4th goal he looked like he was not even ready for the shot.

We can't win every game. We've had a 7 game winning streak, it's got to end sometime.

Thanks Offsides

They are 1st place in the NHL going into the AS Break no matter what
Montreal is in another conference
Montreal has been a joke all season
Wings don't care about this game which sucks but if they have to take a night of i guess this is not the worst one to do it

He was looking in the complete opposite direction on the last 2 shots. I think its safe to say this isn't his finest game.

Other teams manage to find someone on our team to rape on, so maybe we can find one on the canadiens.


Agree.

Ericsson should grab Gomez and start pounding away for no reason whatsoever.

Couldn't it end in a competitive way?

I mean, playing "dump and don't chase" hockey on national television isn't the way to go out.

It deflected off of a skate.

It's not just them. Happens to sport's teams all the time. Nothing new, bad days happen.

OK ... let's take a deep breath and chip away at this. Get 2 in the 2nd and get 2 in the 3rd, aim for 1 pt and see what happens in OT.

I'm hoping Ken is looking for a Defensemen and a scoring forward for trade deadline (or before), wishful thinking I suppose.
