Glad we got 4 points, Jimmy was great.  But please, don't kid yourselves, for the better part of these two games it was all Anaheim.

 

And for the better part of the 2003 series against the Ducks and the 2004 series against the Flames, it was all Detroit. But we lost those. A win is a win is a win.

 

Edit: Fixed the dates.

What are you talking about, the whole game was defensive miscues. 


Not nearly like the games against Calgary and Minnesota recently. Anaheim is a really good team. They were bound to get scoring chances and control play coming off Friday's effort, which they did. Howard was the difference.

JAVERAGE in the playoffs.

 

Fixed.  



And for the better part of the 2002 series against the Ducks and the 2003 series against the Flames, it was all Detroit. But we lost those. A win is a win is a win.

 

Huh?

Yeah thanks to Jimmy Howard for the 2 points tonight.

 

Two words

 

Jimmy Howard.

He saved their butts approximately 10 times.  I don't think I'm exaggerating with that one.


"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

We didn't have much after the 1st period offensively, and made a ton of defensive mistakes and gave the puck away constantly. 


Luckily we have Howard. For all those who say "elite goalies should be able to steal a game for their team, therefore Howard is not elite"... well, I give you exhibit A. Not that it's the first time Howard's done it, far from. 

 

Huge points. We need to keep rolling so Holland feels comfortable making a splash at the deadline.

Not trying to make excuses, they shouldn't have done it.

 

But leading up to that play there was interference along the boards by anyone, and usually refs let teams play, especially along the boards, then Getzlaf gets called on a inadvertent tripping, which is a penalty no doubt, but not that egregious and is usually looked over towards the end of games.

 

I blame the refs in these circumstances more then the players, the players are working their asses off all game, and the refs make a crucial call that pretty much decides the game. It can be pretty frustrating as a hockey player, especially with the Wings getting double the powerplay time tonight, probably just boiled over for the Ducks.

 

Oh well, great weekend for the wings. I really wanted to see us win a game that we didn't really dominate, and this was a gritty, unpretty game. Jimmy was outstanding tonight, and stole the game. We need to be less aggressive on pinches, we still give up way too many odd man rushes.

Yikes. That was unnecessary.

 

Then why the "trade him now remark" to my post?

 

That was unnecessary since let me restate that I've never once said trade Jimmy Howard.

 

EVER on this forum. I'm a big Jimmy fan. Sorry if that disappoints you.

Talking about Iginla now. I'm definitely not intrigued by the likely asking price, but I also can't help and imagine what Iginla could do still on Datsyuk's wing.

That last call should have been called. There was an empty net at the other end of the ice. People would be furious if that play kept the puck in the zone and the ducks ended up scoring.

I was agreeing with you. The picture was random.

 

I can see how you could have misunderstood that. Chalk it off to minor thoughtlessness on my part.

Iginla has never played with anyone like Datsyuk in the NHL.  Then again, you can say that about the other teams he listed.  

 

I wanted us to make this move last season, for Lidstrom's last run.  Not so sure now.

Agreed. Not sure the cost is worth it for an aging Iginla, even with the intrigue of Datsyuk as a linemate.

I will still likely put together some unrealistic proposals in the upcoming "Iginla thread".  I welcome others to do the same.

Meh, I am okay with Monster playing against the yotes, they don't scare me. Plus he will probably be out to avenge his last start


You might be, but I'll be in the building and frankly don't want to watch him lol. Didn't you know? It's all about me when the Wings come to Phx...get with the program ET!

I agree, if the Wings weren't able to get the puck out of the zone because of it, no doubt it should be a penalty. Actually I thought with about 6:00 left the Ducks should have got a penalty because Kindl was unable to get the puck of the zone on an interference, which lead to another 30 seconds of Ducks pressure.
