Brunner's passing is very underrated. He always connects with a player when he picks the puck off the boards. Too bad cleary doesn't do this... he just skates past centre and gets dumped.

why is it so hard for us to gain momentum as the season progresses?

just like last year, it's like every game is the first game of the year and we look so rusty and lethargic, like we're starting the season all over again every time- it's ridiculous

Because we have too many streaky players.

That period was ugly. The Blues won every puck battle and all the Red Wings could muster were their specialty perimeter shots.

The Wings look like they have played three nights in a row besides Z.

Only 1 goal and a hit post away from bring tied with one o the best teams in hockey.

I'm happy with each of our players try are doing great staying with this powerhouse blues team. I'm sure our powerplay will get it going, almost got the puck in their zone on the last PP

I wonder how long Babcock is going to keep these powerplay units before he realizes that they are not working.... Kindl has been horrible on the powerplay, and Cleary has no place out there. I cannot wait until White comes back so that we can have White and Smith back there on the point. Also I would like to see Eaves take Cleary's place on the powerplay because he has some skill and a good shot.

well at least, despite our play that peroid, we're only down by 1

still have a chance to wear them down in the 3rd

maybe we've just been lulling them into a false sense of security?

Out where?

Cleary looks like the guy in all those Pink Floyd songs. The one referred to as "he".

I think Brunne ron the point is working fairly well, if you can't get in the zone and don't shoot the puck any powerplay will look lik crap.

I would go:

Zeterberg- Datsyuk- Bertuzzi

Brunner- Kronwall

AND

Eaves- Filpulla- Franzen

White- Smith (when White is back next week)

I think that moving Bert up to the top unit will create more room for Pavs and Hank and Franzen with Fil will provide a shooter out there. I think this will balance things out more which is what the powerplay needs.

I have to confess that this is the first season in a very long time that I get this excited for every goal and near goal. I think my red wing eliteism is slowly wearing away and I kinda like it. Its actually fun having every shift of every game mean something, instead of waiting till the 2nd round of plYoffs till I really get invested and fanatical...i for one am enjoying the ride thus far and yes the frustration sucks bit its all part of it.
