pros:

 

pretty good game

awesome to see bert come back and score 2

Z is still a beast. he holds the puck real well consistant

datsyuk has def stepped it up. he was invisible the last couple. beautiful passes and what a shot

brunner is the real deal. great shot  man. love that hes not afraid to shoot. just got to work on some defense, use his time create space, dats got to teach him takeaways and to hold the puck. he needs to be more aggresive on the forecheck too. he could be a top sniper in the league in a couple years

kindl actually looked pretty solid 1 stupid penalty though

huskins looked real solid too

lot of hitting forechecking and block shots and passes.

 

Cons:

CLEARY what the f*** are you doing out there, you sure as s*** arent helping. 2 dumb ass penalties.

FRANZEN same ol same ol. had a nice screen but IMO this guy has to use his size and drive the net whenever he can

gave them way too much time on the PP

still sketchy on the PK but improved with helmer back

 

 

Good entertaining game. still have work to do but i did not expect this performance from the wings against the wild.

 

hope they bring it sunday

The power play finally looked like what it should be. If the pk can get decent this team will be just fine. Huskins played a lot because of the parade to the box. I thought our best defensemen all night was Smith. Plus 3 and an assist. Look for more!!
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ill gladly eat my crow tonight as I didnt think the wings would pull it out and really didnt expect Bert to perform like he did. I hope the old man can keep it up. Lashoff comming out for the 5-3 right away shows just how well this kid is playing. Him and Huskins are the best two defenders right now. Didnt think I would say that. Dan Cleary is playing like a plug right now. You can guarantee the guy will either fall down or easily be knocked off the puck every shift. Then he throws in two dumb penalties. Guy needs to pick his game up ASAP or he needs to be sitting on the pine. Detroit has enough Cleary like players to replace him.

Hopefully Bert keeps this up.

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

Filppulas secondary assist on Bert's second goal was one smooth, high skilled, pass.

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.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

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.
