So by that logic, if the Wings get out to a 2 goal lead, they should just turn around & put it in their own net?  Poof, the worst ever lead in hockey's gone.  Rest easy boys we have that so much more secure 1 goal lead back!   :lookaround:

We do that?  Really?  Hmm.  That's not the smartest game plan.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I expect this one to get some action after tonight. 


It seems we revisit this thread 2 out of every 3 games. Let the goalie see the puck or get the eff out of the way. Better idea....dont let him see the puck and blow another lead.

I have to be honest. I really thought I was going to get Flamed on here for starting this thread. I'm just so glad the Wings aren't making an @$$ out of me.

AND we are scoring goals in the first period. Bad news is the other two periods are now irrelevant to the gameplan.

Wings played catch up hockey all of last season. This season we're playing choking hockey.

Team gets a lead, and thinks it will be an easy ride.

Team gets scored on then are like s*** better start playing.

By that time, it's to late, all the momentum goes to the other team.

This was a problem the last few seasons, it just more evident with the lack of D now.

I've noticed two basic situations which apply almost every time. Usually when we grab that one goal lead we enter coast mode and just try to survive until the end of the game.  That or we just have one span of about five minutes where they basically decide to collectively stop playing.

I guess I'll give them the benefit of the dout until we are completely healthy after that no more excuses. It shouldn't be an excuse right now but since I'm trying to be somewhat nice hear I'll give them that much. It's just very frustrating to see our team perform this way in such a short season where basically every game matters and every point matters and the Wings aren't really racking up the points right now becasue they keep losing leads. Hopefully something changes soon and the Wings can get back into a Winning mode and get ready for the playoffs.

Interesting points in this thread.

I have a personal training bizness here in Florida and Iove training athletes compared to the 'general fitness' crowd bcause athletes can flip the switch, reach down and really push themselvs almost as a reflexive reponse whereas the weekend warriors seem to ignore their ability to flip the switch by choice and feel good putting fourth subpar effort.

I mention this because It is so frustrating watching the Wings Flip the switch choosing to fire on all cylinders for 20 minutes then flip the switch off.

What is the cause of this?

Hell at times this year I have actually hoped the wings let off the gas so its not a blow out and that way It will
Be a more entertaining game.

Flip the switch for 60 minutes boyz, please !
