Nice win. Not the prettiest display of hockey, but they got two points and did some things much better in the process. Nyquist looked awesome with Datsyuk -- they need to stay together and into the playoffs. Franzen still did nothing, but at least Pavel had Nyquist out there to help create scoring chances. Z's line was terrific as usual.

Best part of the game was only one goal against and seeing Jimmy look strong again. Ericsson was very good. I know he gets dumped on here, but he's very valuable on the PK and Babcock even singled him out for it. It's not a coincidence the PK is perfect since E returned. I think he has definitely outplayed both Quincey and Kindl. E always gets criticized, but Quincey takes so many bad penalties and hasn't had the impact that I expected so far. I would rather see Ericsson/Smith as the third pairing right now. Quincey needs to break his bad penalty knack. I like he's aggressive and wants to be physical, but do it wisely at least.

Back to controlling their own destiny for home ice advantage. Huge test on Wednesday. We'll see if the Red Wings can fare a little better this time against a tough division rival with a lot at stake.

Where is the "Hudler sucks " guy now? He is the only guy that has scored in the last 2 games? I agree with Mich Steve.....both Huds and E played very well...Florid played very well and are certainly not the Panthers of old.
So happy to get a W......confidence and a money off our back.

The future looks bright in Hockeytown!

I don't know how you can say they are looking better from that game. They played hard for about four minutes of the game, got a lucky bounce to tie it, then settled back and held on for a convincing shootout win.

That won't do you any good in the playoffs.




Yet, if I suggest we fall to six to take on the same type of team... it is a bad idea and there are a bunch of naysayers.

Our defense looked great and we generated loads of offensive chances. On a different day we convert those chances and win 5-1 instead of 2-1 (SO).

Hate to say I told you so (not you, just an expression), but I was one of those people who said keep Hudler and take advantage of him playing for a contract next year. Hudler's played well all year. He's got more goals than Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Filppula, and is only 1 behind Franzen for team lead.

Nice going Jiri :thumbup:

If Babcock didn't play Hudler on the point, he would garner more fan appreciation. He was god awful last year and this year he has been an asset instead of a liability. I don't know if I would want him back next year, but for the right price I'd take him back in a heartbeat.

Agreed. Luckily Babcock has gotten away from Hudler on the point recently. There's no need to have him back there with Lidstrom, White, Kronwall and Quincey/Kindl all fully capable and available. Hudler is too good of a passer anyways and can use that ability much more situated along the half-boards.

Such a sick move from Dats. Would have been 10x better if it had bounced off of Clemmenson's head and into the net.

Home again, too, from Motown. Very long trip in a very small plane but so worth it. So amazing to meet all of you guys at the Joe -- you know who you are and I love you all. I will be back, so this is fair warning. :hehe:

That puck over the net move was incredibly sick.... we all sat up and said, "did he really just DO that?" :lol: It would only have been better if the puck had gone in the net.
