Nice to come home to a solid Wings win. Just saw highlights, wicked backhand pass by #13. It looked like Bert wanted to give Datz a kiss after his 2nd goal!

the amazing part about that saucer pass is that it hit the ice right before reaching bert's stick

It was, 2 amazing assists from Datsyuk as well. As others have said, the return of Bert and Helm gives our forward lines a lot more balance.

Most of all, we played with tenacity. That's what won us the game. Perhaps it was the better rest, or the pep talks, the return of helm/bert, or a combination of those, who knows - I do know we need to show up like that every night. It's clear we have the skill, just got to match it with effort.

Ya,.WTF! I work a 17 hour shift and they play like that! I like it, but honestly, now that we know that they can play this good, will they show up every game from now on? This team concerns me, but from the highlights, maybe they are getting better....at least for one game....baby steps.

I DVR'd the game and will watch this afternoon. It would make my day to see someone holding up a sign that refers to the Olsen Twins or even Gunner....

Is it me, or are 5-on-3s the league's new weapon of choice in the war against low-scoring games?

Thought exactly the same, although the game was good the refs really ruined the flow with their constant whistles for both.

Unless it's the Wings that have the 5 on 3 it seems.

Honestly the calls weren't bad ones. The threshold was low to blow the whistle but on the replays all the penalties were legit. Can't blame them for being consistent. We did a bad job adapting to the tone they set.

But still, he's a diva :blind:

Yes, because that's totally a valid argument. You admit you have no real evidence yet you keep asserting your conclusion anyway.

That place was really rocking last night! Definitely a fun game to attend, the lower bowl was spotty but the Upper Deck was absolutely packed, no open seats around us. What a difference Helm and Bertuzzi made, we looked like a whole different team

Smith is going to turn out to be better than Suter anyway, we need the cap room for him.

he's going to have to learn to play defense first.

I was really impressed on how well the team adapted to the returns of Bert and Helmer i expected a boost of energy but wow we woke up big time when we needed to now im hoping we carry the momentum into sunday and deliver a beating to the Hawks it will be tough but with a day off and them playing back to back we might catcha break

As much as I liked that game, we need to actually show up for the first period for Chicago, and then if we have that many penaltys they'll shred our PK.

I laugh at everyone who was nay-saying and claiming we would get smoked... ha I laugh at you all

Yes because there was no evidence this season that a smoking was possible.

It's called having faith in your team, even throughout disparity. Look at leafs fans, as much as they get on my nerves with their "this year is the leafs year to win a cup" crap, there is something to be said about how loyal they are, and they always have faith in their team. Not to mention not many teams had a good start after the lockout, look at nyr, la, philly, washington, pittsburgh, vancouver... Sorry if I don't jump ship everytime an elite player retires...
