Ugh! Hank needs to get that up!... And Nyquist getting hooked nicely <_<

Nyquist is looking like that missing top six winger we've desperately needed.

Gah!

Nyquist :)

Red Wings are playing hard, but these defensive breakdowns are going to kill us if we don't improve.

Since the Central division came into existence in 1993 the Wings have won it 13 times and were 2nd 4 times. That's 17 seasons, 13 wins and 4 runner-ups. Let's hope that streak continues.

The Wings need to exert more pressure in the offensive zone. Put Nyquist with Pav and Hank for a few shifts.

Positives going into the playoffs

1. PK is looking much better

2. Franzen is awake and might actually have an effect (he scores as I type this)

3. Relatively healthy

4. Howie seems to be on his game (and healthy)

5. With the exception of Kindl, the defense seems to be picking up loose players/loose pucks

Negatives:

1. No chemistry or confidence (maybe a comeback here will help)

2. Missing Helm is huge

3. PP still looks lost

4. Way too many neutral zone turnovers

5. 1st period has been dreadful.

6. Play on the road has been equally bad. I do think this one means less once the playoffs start.

7. Coaching. Not sure how much a negative this is but the fact that we have looked so bad at times ( long losing streaks) and can't score I thought BABS and Co. deserve some of the blame

Thoughts?

I was just thinking about that, fourth doesn't even seem fathomable.

Yea, 4th place would be the worst finish in a division since 1989-90, the last time the Wings missed the playoffs.

WTF... puck battle in the corner, no one near the net but the goaltender, DZN on the ice. How was it knocked off?

If his game holds, let's play a guess the Babcock post game quotes game:

"We played well at times, but the power play wasn't working for us. I think that we took a step in the right direction as a team."
