I know we've won two games but man were they good ones. This is a thread of Pre-Playoff relief now that we have most of our guys back and we are playing like the team we know and love. Repaired, dialed in and finally tearing it up.. our Boys are back in town!!

GO WINGS!!

I wouldn't go as far to say that we are playing the way we should, but we are certainly getting back to the lineup that we're used to. Hopefully they can restore some chemistry with the last few games of the season and be ready for round 1.

Like I've said before, a healthy Red Wings team is the best team in the NHL

And speaking of getting healthy, per Ansar Khan...

Franzen said he's playing tomorrow.

Wings' Ericsson said his status for tomorrow will be decided after morning skate

Wings' Howard said he felt good in first full practice in more than a week. Still hopeful of playing Friday.

Wait... how many goals were allowed the last two games?!?!? Oh, and were either of those teams playoff teams?

Not to be the downer, but this doesn't mean anything but a bit more confidence. Hold off until they play Nashville before you make a judgement.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

the chemistry looked great last night if you ask me. the couple no look, behind the back passes that lead to goals are the plays we want to see. means we finally have a system thats working, or everyone is finally figuring out where everyone else is without looking.

i know it was CBJ, but still, plays like that can happen against any team.

Allowing 4 goals against Carolina and 2 against Columbus is not good, but you have to remember that Conklin was in goal for both games. The two that he let in last night were shots that I feel MacDonald or Howard would have stopped. Overall, they're playing better defense and should be ready to go come playoff time.

Looking at the last two games, the thing I am hoping is that the special teams play is improving and will continue to improve.

The first two PPs last night looked great, I want that to continue, and for the PK to keep improving. Obviously getting Lidstrom back will be huge in that regard.

I don't have any of the numbers in front of me but it seems like the Wings are taking a lot of penalties recently. Improved special teams or not, the Wings need to stay out of the box as they are the best 5 on 5 team in the league.

Right, because gaining confidence is completely overrated in snapping a losing streak right before heading into the post season.

i get the feeling CBJ wouldnt have scored those 2, particularly the one where their forward walked in from the neutral zone, if we werent winning by 7 goals. we took our foot off the pedal somewhere in the second

Yeah, I think the panic should be tempered here...especially if you saw the first CBJ goal last night. It was pretty obvious that we weren't even trying to stop them on that one.

From what I read about his postgame comments, Babcock felt the same. Ken & Mickey have echoed comments like that in big blowout games. A team that's up by 5 or 6 goals is not going to keep the same focus as a team that's playing in a 0-0 tie, or protecting a 1 goal lead.

While the last 2 games have helped us in the standings, and helped restore a little confidence in this team, there is still work to be done. Let's see how we play on the road tomorrow, then a real test for this team with Nashville in town on Friday.

Agree. Not only was it CBJ but most of their top d-men were out too, and their top d-men aren't as good as ours so it was even worse for them. Murph was even pointing out how out of position their inexperienced defense was on the goals. On the flipside though, always good to get a win!

Give credit where it's due. The Red Wings have looked WAY better the past two games. There is certainly room for improvement, but they are making strides and getting healthy in the process.

I know you are an advocate for finishing 6th, but these two wins certainly do mean something. The Wings are 4th in the conference now and five points ahead of Chicago.

The problem last night is columbus just blows for one and secondly they are injured understaffed. I don't think letting in the 2 goals meant anything though, of course a team is going to let up when they are up by 7.

I was much more impressed by the Carolina game than the Columbus game for a couple of reasons. Obviously the come from behind was sweet, but mostly what I liked most was the style of game they played. Good hard working north/south hockey is what wins games in the playoffs and that's what they did. All that fancy pants, east/west, no look passing, stuff works against s*** teams, and looks really cool, but won't work in a tight checking, hard working type of game. Obviously I'm happy with any win, but if I did have to nit pick the Columbus game, I would have liked for them to keep it simple and fundamental, rather than Harlem Globetrotter esque (Datsyuk excluded as he's good enough to do what he wants). Either way, glad to see them coming around.

It's not that they beat them, it's how the played when they beat them. A big comeback from a 4-1 deficit when we all know they could have just coasted to a loss and then a huge blowout with some jawdropping moves (not to mention two PP goals)

St Louis has also lost to both these teams (2-1 to CBJ and 2-0 to CAR) recently
