Couple of things:

* Bad turnover Brunner. I like you, but with 30 seconds left in the game, keeping the puck deep is #1 priority. Live and learn kid.

* Why is White and Lashoff our D-men on the ice in the last minute? Ericsson?? Bad coaching.

* Timeout should have happened a long time ago. Bad coaching.

* What is Howard doing on the goal? Tough side-to-side play but still. Rest the guy already. Monster looks ready to play.

* Abdelkader and Cleary. Bad coaching.

* Zetterberg's worst game of the season, easily.

* Tatar was maybe the best player on the ice for us. Hello Babcock???

Awful, awful loss. Things are starting to look rough in the standings. Not even getting a point tonight.. wow.

Injuries aren't an excuse unless Babcock's mind has been injured which I'm starting to think.

Desperately, desperately need to the win the next game. And the one after that. And the one after that. Sigh.

Kinda hard to fault the goalie on a full fledged wide open chance in front of the net.

It is when he's on his ******* back before the shot even comes. The guy has been a sieve for 2 years now. Time to wake up.

You mean the line that accounted for both goals?

And then did...what, exactly? They also accounted for 2 goals against. Z AND Brunners turnovers.

He took himself completely out of the play. That was just horrible from every aspect. Offense, defense, goaltending can all take a blame for that one.

Kronwall's being asked to do too much. He's a championship #3 defensemen at best.

It's never just one person's fault. Brunner turned it over and he's to blame.

But a goalie's job is to stop shots, not just to stop easy shots. That was a good chance for Columbus, and Howard looked totally lost on that play. He should also be blamed.

yes, you can.

he blew that.

sometimes you need to win a 2-1 game.

he'll always be an average goaltender, nothing more.

Had a chance to put them out of the game in the first 10 mins, but nope once again the lazy non chalant bulls*** let em hang in the game and of course it comes back to burn ya :evil:

Makes me sick that this has gone on for quite a while now and not a damn thing will be done to correct it.

Send a damn message at some point to these guys who are not getting it done and have them sit in the press box for a few games. Yeah injuries happen, but someone is gonna have to grab their balls at some point and realize that the country club days are long gone for the foreseeable future.

Rant over, goodnight folks

Coaching has been a joke all season I would give anything for him to get fired

I've always blamed Holland for this team's problems, but Babcock is weird with his lineups.

Our "so-called" top prospect is in the minors, while talentless hacks are playing on the 2nd line and on the powerplay.

Into the second third of this season and on a four game losing streak. If something doesn't break in the nex three to five games it's going to be a long (and early) off season.

I'm pretty sure that was our 5th straight loss.

Quincey a +2 in 6 minutes tonight. Team goes downhill after he leaves. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Howard a .875 save percentage tonight. Another loss that could have easily been a win with a few CLUTCH saves. Hmmmmmmmmmm

Huskins a -1 and White a -2. Hmmmmmmmm

Brunner another cough up trying to do too much. Not so much hmmmmmmmm. I can live with a guy who is at least trying to score all the time. He screws up a lot, but at least he's got his eye on the prize.

Kronwall is good for kronwalling people, nothing more nothing less. What type of D-man is he considered cause he seems strong in zero points of his game.

Brunner turned it over, hustled back and took the right guy. Lashoff made the wrong play, and then Howard looked like a clown, again. I'd blame Howard and Lashoff before Brunner.

Look at the D men on the ice at the end of the game. Babcock can go to hell. Isn't he the highest paid coach in the NHL. Fire his ass. Our roster isn't that bad to have a joke of a powerplay/penalty kill 3 years in a row

They put the puck in the net bud. Nobody else did. Imagine if Datysuk was playing with players that deserved to play with him. Not players who are barely playing at a 4th line level this year.

Brunner. No one (except Nightfall) seems to have noticed.

But this is the 2nd game (after St. Louis) that was clearly lost cos of your turnovers.

I thought this was your night. Jeez...

Two points in three games against the worst team in the league.

Wait until we see Chicago, Vancouver and San Jose more frequently. This is the easy portion of the schedule and they are digging themselves a huge hole, even when we get our trade deadline healthy bodies back as acquisitions.

Everything about this team is average. Can't hold a 2-0 lead at home against the frickin Blue Jackets. Too many mistakes, not enough talent to overcome them. God forbid they score a PP goal to help the cause.

Babcock is really hurting the team not playing Datsyuk and Zetterberg together right now with Brunner. Filppula is invisible anyways, so stick him with Cleary and Abdelkader (or Tatar ideally) and stack the top line. It makes no sense to spread out the talent when your depth is pathetically thin. Hopefully Franzen comes back this weekend. Babcock won't do it, but Franzen-Datsyuk-Tatar would be worth a shot.

Sucks that we lost. I hope Artem Anisimov is OK. That was very scary. 5 seconds before the refs noticed I was screaming at the TV, "HE'S OUT COLD! BLOW THE DAMN WHISTLE!"

Very scary\freak moment. The news thus far seems to be positive.

Lots of teams looking for a d man. Get Kronwall the f*** out and address another issue. I don't care if we miss the playoffs we need changes now

You really want to trade Kronwall and let players like Lashoff play everyday? Do us all a favor and go have a beer and calm down or something.

I'm glad no one on this board actually has any influence on the Wings.
