Great game by Z and big E.

 

However I won't stop mentioning it. Our bottom six needs to get it going offensively with or without Helm.

 

Ya they need to, but man did tootoo ever have some good scoring chances tonight, I'm surprised he didn't score

 

 

Am I the only one who thought Dats goal went in off Mule's leg?

 

Bad call on the Backes hit. Great to see Z in beast mode, and yes, Ericsson has a good first pass.

 

Nope, I thought it went off mules leg too, I don't think mule will be upset he still gets an assist, points are points. 

 

I love proving all the naysayers wrong, talking about how bad the blues would beat us tonight :)

Yes Toots had a couple of chances but still. No points for our bottom six. I don't like this. As much as I love Z and Dat's they can't carry the team on their back. Especially if an injury occurs to Howard as mentioned in another thread. We need bottom six scoring.

We do, I think tootoo's line will start scoring soon if they keep playing that way though, once Helm returns next week we will see more bottom six scoring with emmerton out of the lineup

I hope your right. Injuries seem to be occuring more often than not these last few seasons for us Wings fans. Regardless of who's in the lineup especially in the bottom six we need other guys to step up. Not seeing that is a concern.

Yah it was a horrible call... that was a clean hit clearly. As a fan of hockey it pains me to see the officiating, not only in this game, but seemingly every single game this season. Every period I watch is DOMINATED by penalties... it is not even fun to watch. The refs need to put their whistles away and stop calling this garbage and let the boys play the game of hockey that we all know and love. While I feel the refs were a huge factor in the Wings win tonight, I am not going to complain because God knows it will even out sooner rather than later. I feel for the Blues and their fans... they played a solid road game after playing last night and probably deserved a point... its a shame the refs had to ruin what was an excellent hockey game. Anyways... go wings! :)

This is what happens when they actually call STL on their goon BS, and we decide to fight back and play their style of game. Suddenly they're not putting up 6. We're better, we just have to decide to play through their physicality and forecheck instead of looking forward to the next game like so many teams who don't feel like applying the Blues' own style against them.

Look at it this way-while our bottom 6 isn't scoring, our top 6 is. The bottom six won't be ice cold forever, they'll pick up. Our stars are carrying us when we need them to. That's what a team is all about. We could easily be in a scoring drought all around.

Just checked, our bottom six only has 2 points all season!  Good job Pav and Hank are on fire really.


"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

I can't even tell you how happy I was to see Z dig for that 3rd goal... dare I say...Captain-like?  Yes!  Lead by example, and the others will follow. 

 

In addition, I am now sitting on the edge of the Tootoo bandwagon.  I wasn't too sure I liked this signing, having seen some of his chicken-s*** shenanigans in Nashville.  But, he comes to play and loves being a Wing.  More importantly, he makes other teams' players look over their shoulders when he's out there.  My kinda guy!

Agreed...  I understand why the trailing ref made the call due to the head-snap, but it was only a "chest cracker".  I wish we hadn't gotten the gamer winner on that PP, but then again we get screwed on calls too!

Yep, what comes around goes around. Things even out. The interfenence call on Kronwall was horrible! That play happened at least 10 other times in the game.

Sorry if I misunderstood you, but are you saying "We're better than the 6-0 game", which I agree with, or "We're better than the Blues" which, sadly, just isn't true.

Sure looked like Backes took out Huskins knee on that hit.  Dirty b.a.s.t.a.r.d.

We will find out Thursday, which team is the better team. Both teams will have a day off, unfortunately it will be in St. Louis, advantage them, and also they don't have to travel as there Tuesday game is at home. But I feel like Thursday will really be the true marker of where we stand against the blues

4th line I thought played very well. Miller, Emmerton, & Tootoo had lots of energy and generated good scoring chances. Cleary on the other hand, yuck. Don't know really whats up with him, but he's turning the puck over ever time he touches it. His pen late was another of the bad calls in the game, so can't really blame him for that one.

And, e-frikin-ventually, Mule will start carrying some mail. 

 

I really like Cleary, but of course got to wonder if he will ever regain his effectiveness and subsequent scoring touch.  I, for one, am glad that Babcock is giving him the opportunity to get his hockey together.

Do you hear what I hear ("Elliott") at 0:20 in the TSN.ca video recap of the game?
