Feel bad for the people who paid to watch them at the Joe.  

 

 Thanks for the sympathy.  It was a tough one to watch, especially as the mass exodus started at 10:00 in the third and continued with each goal. 

 

The only cool part of the night was the pre-game show mc'd by Mac himself leading the "Let's go Wings!" chant.

Anyone know why Bertuzzi was not playing?


Only breathing is more important than winning

Cause he has size and will actually use it. We don't like players like that in our lineup.

Howard= the reason we will tie this series up on Monday!

And why we are even in the playoffs!

I don't know about blaming it but are saying her can't steal us a game (even though we didn't even score a goal)

I still laugh at the fact that people always point out Howard's contract. I'm sorry but in the NHL you get paid when your contract is up and around UFA time. Please name other goalies around the league that make less then him, have gone through UFA and haven't had a bad/terrible year in the past 3-4 years... There won't e many... Howard's numbers are close to top 10 in the league for his past 4 years

The goalies that are up there with him just have been paid yet (rask), had a bad year or so and got shipped to another team (Anderson) came out of the wood works out of no where (bobrosky). Yes is 5 million a hefty price to pay a goalie yes, but unless you want to deal with what Philly has been dealing with (and they still pay 5 million) I'm happy paying Howard what he deserves to make sure our goalie is solid for the next hand ful of years.

You could tell the Ducks were going to win that game before a single goal was scored.  They just brought it in every facet.  Also I'm glad we have depth because Abby will probably be gone 3 games in my opinion. 


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

Still pissed about the Abby call. At most I could see a 2 min minor for charging. I'm sorry you can't look up ice and keep yourself from getting injured. I'm sorry the head is the next part of the body that is going to get hit after the shoulder when a human body compresses from impact. I'm sorry you're playing the most physical and fast paced sport on earth.

How could you get charging out of that? AB's was gliding for 10ft prior to impact. There was no penalty. If this was the Scott Stevens era there would have been nothing but a momentum shift for the wings.

What depth are you talking about? Bab's himself said we don't have depth. AHL players are not depth!

And wow did we miss Danny D or what? 3 gimmie goals right in front of the crease. If Big Rig isn't out there we've got no one willing to knock people on their ass.


I know his thumbs broken but I still can't find any info on how it happened? Sounds like a slash to me but that is just making an educated guess.

As much as I (and many others) want to trash Jimmy for the score, there's no arguing that Hiller was playing well enough that they may as well just turned the net backwards, because nothing was getting past him last night.

I think he broke it when his hand touched the ice as he was falling. If you look at the replay they were showing last night, as his hand hits the ice it looks like his glove meets the surface and bends back his thumb (sorry, this is not a very good description). I think they were saying he's had this injury before, so maybe he's more prone to it.

Does the typical phone versus in-person disciplinary meeting still come into play during the post-season?  I don't follow it that closely, but I thought as a general rule, suspensions were doled out with an in-person meeting and anything else was done over the phone.  Last I heard, Abby had a phone hearing at 4PM today so maybe no suspension?  Just asking because I don't know.

I had the damndest dream last night. I dreamed the Wings came home for Game 3 on an emotional high and simply played like ass all night long. I dreamed Abdelkader got kicked out of the game. I was shocked awake by the thought that Damien Brunner as the last guy up the ice on a powerplay tried to make a cute move around a forechecker. Just as Getzlaf shot at Jimmy I woke up in a cold sweat. 

 

Ahhhh, it was all a dream. Think I'll go check out TSN. See you all later.

DET's Justin Abdelkader will have a telephone hearing with the NHL this afternoon for his hit on ANA's Tony Lydman last night.

1. Abby hit WAS NOT a penalty, not now, not then, not in 1935. The Ref was standing two feet from the hit, watching the play with his own two eyes. The Duck had the puck, Ref's attention was not elsewhere.  He watched the guy fall to the ice. He saw it was shoulder on shoulder hit, he saw that Abby was gliding and not "charging" towards him....bulls*** call from a ref 200 feet away and it will be bulls*** if he should get suspended....

 

B. Yes, Howard got us to the playoffs, Yes, Howard is a top 10 goalie in this league, Yes, he deserves the contract (I don't like the length) he got...BUT he totally s*** the bed on the 3rd and 4th goals...that being said, even the Elite of all Elite goalies give up a bad goal or two in a game once in awhile...(Game 7 2002, Patty Boy Roy.)

 

3. With that being said, you still have to score goals to win. So what you got a bad call against you (they only scored once.)  So what a ROOKIE made a mistake and cost the shorthanded goal...So what.  You don't lay down and let them roll over you.  You had over 5 mins in PP time in the first, including a 5 on 3...Stop pussyfooting the passing and shoot the puck and you may score some goals.  You killed off their 5 on 3, most of the 5 min major and was matching their physical play.  This reminds me of 2007.  One PP goal in game 6, ONE, and the Wings win that series...

 

D. There is no D....just win.  This team is good enough to beat the Ducks, but not playing like they did yesterday. You have to score goals to win. Just ask Curtis Joseph...
