It's worth noting, the Wings still have not scored a PPG on the road.

That said, 2-0 on goals by Cleary and Kindl? Whoever had THAT square is a happy man...

Wow, surprising 1st period. Boys are skating and forechecking hard, no pens, and secordary scoring ?????? Only thing consistent of the season so far, is that our powerplay still sucks!

I seriously don't understand how a team can look better at even strength as opposed to on a power play.

I honestly think they relax and slow down too much on the PP. They try to be too patient, too cerebral. They end up "waiting" for a good shot instead of moviing the puck and moving without the puck to "create" a good shot and open rebounders.

WIngs old PP was super fast puck movement.

Too bad we had that PP at the end, it really took away any momentum we could have carried into the 2nd.

Laughably bad. I almost couldn't watch it.

When will Babs/Renney change the PP formations? Neither of them is close to working.

Good period on the whole though. Mrazek got to show his stuff towards the end of the period, looked sharp.

lol is Lashoff playing? Never noticed him.

Never thought I'd see Lashoff, Tatar, and Mrazek start for the wings in the same game.

It was all laziness by Franzen and White. In one case lazy entry in the other lazy decision making. Terrible the shift before with Z Bruner and Mule gave it away twice because of laziness.

Plus Kindl can't quarterback the PP

ya, he had a giveaway though that ALMOST resulted in a goal, but Mrazek was spot on. Not noticing Lashoff is a good thing though

Can't watch the game... :(

How Tatar/Mrazek/Tootoo are doing?

Tatar looks real good. Making solid plays both on offense and defense. Had a quick shot that Cleary got the rebound on and scored.

Mrazek didn't have a lot to do, but had one really good reaction save and handled everything well.

Didn't notice Tootoo much, think he was in front of the net screening the goalie on the 2nd goal though.

Toots hasn't had much opportunity but he's finishing his checks hard and while I wouldn't say he's wreaking havoc in front of the net, atleast he's got a bit of a presence there.

Mrazek is quick as a cat. Goes down and is up into position super quick like he's Jet Li or something.

Figures that when our bottom 6 gets going our top 6 struggles.

yeah seems like we can't get everybody on the same page at the same time

I wonder what we'd be like if we at least had Helm back, too

Boy our D-zone coverage is awful! Teams are consistently out working us & skating circles around us. Then we we finally get the puck we turn it over on the blueline
