Howie was good tonight, but those first 2 goals he let in were weak by his standards. They were not softies, but he has shown he is capable of making those saves. he'll come out next game and prove it. The wings need to minimize their turnovers, and just shoot the damn puck. The PP needs to be better, they had 3 chances to take the lead and failed. If they score on one of those it's a completely different game.

A quick one timer from the slot to the upper corner by one of the top snipers in the league and perfect shot off the post from a man left wide open between the circles is considered weak? Good lord people.

Embarrassing display in the 3rd period.

I thought the Hawks would blitz us in this series, so I'm not surprised. But it was still disturbing and pathetic to watch.

Young legs move fast. And they're skilled. they lost Byfuglien, Ladd and Versteeg and reloaded with Leddy, Saad, Shaw and Bickell. They only had 1 down year after winning the Cup and now they're lethal as f*** again. Leddy is pretty much as good as Keith now. Thank god we're moving East next year, cause the Hawks are gonna stay good and the BJ's are gonna be something to keep an eye on 1 or 2 years from now.

And how come Corey Crawford always play well against us?

Another chump we've made into some hero.

I've defended Cleary all playoffs, but that goal the Swedish black dude scored was on him. He was sleeping on the point there.

Don't think he should sit, though. Maybe Bertuzzi should get promoted to a higher line? He doesn't seem like a 4th line guy to me.

Hey people were looking for others to help out along the boards. Cleary obviously reads the forums.

I'm willing to make a wager with Fat Guy in a Maltby Jersey.

If the Wings get swept, as he predicts ... I will never post in this forum again. If they don't ... he leaves forever.

I'll even wager $100 to the charity of his choice on it.

Agreed 100%.

And to the guy who said they would have scored that third one in the same fashion at the same time regardless of whether Howie got his stick caught up back there or not, come on, lets take off the homer glasses and get real.... The only reason they scored that one was because Howie had his stick caught up back there and thus couldn't get around in time to make the save.

Same here...my phone blew up about 10 seconds after the empty netter with friends trying to razz me...sadly none of them knew of hockey until June 2010.

Maybe I need new friends :confused:

I live in NW Indiana (Valpo) and I got about 10 texts and then Facebook blew up! At least on FB I can "approve" posts. Of course I deleted all of them!!!

That was one of the most heartless, passionless, gutless playoff performances I've ever seen from the Wings. Sleepwalking. Somebody better wake them up and tell them the series started.

Anyone else notice the increase in forechecking by the hawks as the game went on? They could see that the wings were turnover prone, and just increased the pressure.

Puck gets stuck on the side of the net what do 95% of goaltenders do? They put there stick or glove over it to freeze it and get a faceoff which is what Howard was trying to do. He wasnt trying to flip it off the net like the idiot Edzo was saying. Chicago got in and broke it up and was able to get it out front. Its a perfect example of them out-skating and wanting it more than the Wings. Not homer goggles just what happened.

As you should...I get a little razzing if its warranted, but when it comes from those who as I said did not even know what hockey was until June 2010 then I don't even bother to waste my time to give them a response.

I would usually rip the Wings for a performance like this... 20 minutes of pretty good play followed by the laziest 40 minutes i have seen in a while but I know they are much better and the team from games 6 and 7 against the Ducks was not the team that played tonight. This was just a matter of the Hawks being fresh and the Wings being very tired off of a long 1st round series.

To be honest wasn't even impressed with the Hawks considering how bad the Wings played. That game looked like a regular season game. Wings looked better in that 4-0 loss to the Ducks.

Just need to bring a winning attitude into game 2, plain and simple. Bring effort, energy and drive to win. That didn't happen tonight, but they have shown they are capable of bringing that to the playoffs this year. It needs to happen and happen fast.

Feel bad for Jimmy but that is about all. Hawks capitalized on two chances and were gifted a third. Wings had plenty of chances and hopefully they will cash them in on Saturday.

Well then. Looks like I can be thankful I was on a plane and not watching this game. Get some rest, boys, and get 'em on Saturday.

it doesn't even matter, the wings only managed to muster 21 shots, 7 in the first, 5 in the second, and 9 in the third, and the hawks were all over them. They only got one goal, wouldn't matter if it was 2-1 or 12-1, you cant score by only scoring one (tying) goal. The turd, excuse me I mean third line was OK tonight, but none of the lines got it done at all, and Smith looked atrocious again! turnover after turnover, every time he touched the puck, he was like a 6th skater for the hawks

They won't be nearly as good next year, they need to shed quite a bit of salary, and BJ's will be in our conference next year, as they are moving as well.

I'm willing to make a wager with Fat Guy in a Maltby Jersey.

good luck, he is just a troll. he WILL NOT take that wager, he is more talk than action, unless he would like to prove me wrong?

No way Babs let's them get away with playing another game like tonight, all we need is one. Howard is locked I'm but its going to take an effort like the end of the Ducks series every night to pull a W out against these guys.

Did you see the Game 7 comeback by the Bruins the other night? Less than half the 3rd period was left, and they were down by 3, not two. They were playing like crap, looked like they had given up. But, they got their chit together, focused, and bounced back for the win. Why don't the Wings seem to have that kind of character?

Everyone says it was a Leafs collapse...I say it was an inexperienced team shellshocked by the ******* dragon the Bruins suddenly turned into with 9 minutes left in the game.

The Leafs let up and were in a feel good state before the game ended. The Bruins smelled it like a shark smells blood in the water and devoured them, then the Bruins ended the game.

I would love to see something truly amazing like this, maybe we will. But we sure as hell won't see that if we play without heart, guts, and drive. Some players on Boston woke up and then got everyone in on it -- they had the guts to believe they could still win and had the heart keep fighting.
