Wings led on shots on goal and faceoffs.

Preds led on PIMs, Giveaways, and takeaways.

Two dumb luck deflections were the difference.

Its going to be a 7 game punishing series.

That is all. Goodnight everyone!

hope Babcock wises up earlier than he usually does and mixes the lines up, esp. if Helm is gonna be out again for a while; someone said bring Nyqvist up, I second that; hell, bench Corey Emmerton and his uselessness and bring Sheahan up, at least he's big

So I'm guessing you'd OK that Weber hit on Z, right smartass?





What Shea Weber did to Z is not ok and he should sit out a game or two,but you should never wish a injury on a player


and don't call me a smartass

One year it's Malkin, one year it's Pronger one year it's Thorton, now it's Weber. Every year someone goes after our stars and punks em out, No one does anything. It's just a matter of time when someone comes along and headshots Datsyuk right out of the league. Wheres the class in sports? Better yet, where the balls on our roster?

Wings didn't play to their potential but also they weren't awful. Howard had a solid game he was just unlucky as was Detroit in general in that game.

Few things:

Don't need Emmerton on the ice ever again, Nyquist needs to be in the lineup.

Ericsson or Quincey out for Smith. Don't care which one really.


Oh and the Shea Weber situation, I hope he is not suspended so the Wings have some motivation.

Preds win this game by the skin of their teeth, Weber has a hissy fit on Z after the horn...typical

I think wings win this in 6, losing 1 more game due to some more outrageous fluky goals and/or terrible calls.

Gave you a +1 on that one. True hockey fan right here, regardless of cheering for own team or not, realizes that a bad/poorly judged decision by his Captain should sit him a game or two.

WTH are you talking about. No I don't want a player on our team who goes out there intending on injuring someone.

The problem is that we don't have anyone to center the fourth line. Unless you want to put Filppula on the third line and have Abdelkader go down to the fourth?

Also why oh why is Emmerton out there contributing nothing as usual?!?!


Had Helm not been injured, Emmerton playing center on the 4th line would have allowed Abdelkader to play his crash-and-bang game on the wing.

Before benching him, have Emmerton charge and cross-check Weber's head into the boards. When he gets suspended, it will be of little consequence.
Watch out!!!! - it's the Sheik ---- and he's got an object!!!!

none of our d-men had much of a positive impact imo; Nick can't do what he once did anymore, we need a full effort from the D but we are not getting it

I can deal with that, Flip has really grown this season and i could see him making those guys better.

It's absolutely incredible that not one Detroit player went after Weber after what he did to Zetterberg. What a team Holland and Babcock have designed. Unbelievable. I don't think that either will be around much longer.


Yes, yes... this level of success isn't good enough, the season ticket holders will be getting angry, Ilitch will be forced to make changes and fire men who rank amongst the undisputed best at their respective positions. We've heard it all before numerous times, and it's just as nonsensical now as it was the first time you said it.

Franzen floats too much even for a winger.
