Several thoughts:
Settle down on Kindl. The kid is not "terrible". That said, our rookies looked terrified and confused so I hope their nerves subside a bit and they figure it out.
I'd like to see Bert in even if it's on a lower line...I have a good feeling about him in this series.
Hiller was way better than Hiller. Where did that come from?
God I hate Corey Perry sooo much.
Can't believe anybody is bagging on Ericsson after that since he was one of the players I was actually really pleased with during this game.
Lastly, I still think Detroit will take Anaheim in 6.

We need some size and strong board play if Getz and Perry are going to match up against Flip and Frazen, I wouldn't mind seeing Bert in. Alot of our guys got pushed around tonight, especially some of the D  but I think we will do better next game.

The Mule didn't get his first shot on goal until the 3rd period...that is not pretty good, unless you are talking about Franzine...we need playoff Franzen now...unless his 7 goals in 8 games was his hot streak and now its time to float some more, because he certainly didn't do too much tonight...but he wasn't the only one.

 

 

But gee whiz, he don't even make 4M, it's fine if he only shows up when he wants to. If he put effort into every game we wouldn't be able to afford him.

This game wasn't even close. They outplayed us past the first period and we're lucky Howard gave us a sliver of chance. They managed to really expose the inexperience of our defence by stifiling us before we could exit the zone. They were aggressively forechecking with two players and we weren't good enough to overcome it with our stretch passes. And Selanne will forever be a Wing killer. I hate that guy.

You know what's good for the wings? They played like crap and only lost 2-1  :lol: Did anyway else notice a bunch of shots to Hiller's glove side? I don't care what the scouting report said. That is not going to work in the playoffs.

He has one goal in his past 18 playoff games.


He should still play. He has the experience and ability to make a difference. He's not a game changer butwwe need depth. 09 finals. He was absolutely clutch. See him score a goal or two and all the naysayers, yourself included, will disappear.

I don't think we watched the same game.

That game could easily.have gone the other way. We got tons of good chances. We hit. Nyquist got outmuscled once or twice, but we got into Anaheim's zone quite a bit.

Flip was terrible, Nyquist was weak on the puck and Franzen didn't get a shot til late in the game.

Could've been better but Anaheim didn't clearly outclass us. I'd like to see Bertuzzi in to help with possession on those bottom lines though.

We need Helm to match up against Cogliano.

 

As Darkmanx said, we need Tuzzi to match size with Getzlaf and Perry.

 

We need Cleary out of the top 6 for Tatar.

 

And lastly, game 1 reminded me of last years playoffs against Nashville where we got to the playoffs and then forgot to bring offense with us.  They didn't create jack for offense and I almost fell asleep half way through that borefest.

Maybe it's just me, but the more closely I watch Brunner play, the more I notice how many dumb descions he makes.  Also, Flip should avoid ever going into a corner again because he gets recked.

The game wasn't all that bad PP goals all around. No big deal I saw. Cogliano was unreal though he scares me.

I think it's time to get Bert back in the lineup. I give Nyquist a lot of credit for his work ethic, he's definitely trying out there, but he got out-muscled a few times and he's not finishing. Brunner could also potentially sit.

Bringing in one grinder and taking another one out would fix the problem for sure. :sleepy:  Cleary played well last night, even if the goal was a lucky shot he deserves credit for being in the right spot at the right time. Thats whats Homer getting credited for though.

I really don't understand some of you guys. We lost a game 1 of a possible 7 game series 2:1 and you are acting like its first game of the season against the Blues. What did you expect ? That we sweep them in 4 ? There are not in 2nd place for nothing. Maybe it would be wise to bring in Bert but for whom ? Only possibiltiy I can think of is Eaves. Any other player would be a risk (Top-two-lines) or just change a grinder for a grinder ( Tootoo, Cleary)

The one thing that really stood out for me, was how many times the Wings gave away the puck.

I can say for once Im cool as a cucumber waiting for the real season to start.  Getting to 22 post-seasons was my hope this year, every number at the top of the page I see is gravy. 

 

I feel the same way. I still want to beat the Ducks though. They have no class and nor do their fans.

Red Wings Suck chant during a tie game?

You're spot on. It was like the Wings in 2003-04 with giguere shooting 5-hole. Take some different shots. They need to get more pucks to the net and crash it. Turning rebounds into goals wins the cup.

Agreed.

 

Cause I was out drinking and celebrating the fact that we kept the playoff streak alive.

Anaheim was the better team last night, but when it was 1-1 it could've went either way and Kindl had a brain fart and gave the Ducks the PP and that was it.

 

I'd like to see Bert back in, we need more size and cycle game down low.

Yea, I am not concerned in the slightest.  This is going to be a long series.  I predicted a 7 game series at the start with the Wings coming out on top.
