Shake it off and get some rest, boys.

*butt pats*

Ken just said this is the first time in 5 games that the Bs have beat the Wings. I'm hardly shaking in my boots at this point.

Blame this on the schedule if you'd like but this team has to be better. The Wings played like crap two nights in a row. Yes they got the win from the Canes but they got out played for 55 minutes. 2 things are certain Smith still sucks and Franzen still floats

The problem is Smith is playing with the wrong Dman. He should NOT be playing with Quincy, but rather should be playing with Danny D. Danny D is so much more solid and responsible than Quincy that it would allow Smith to simplify his game more and play his style... I really wish Babs would try that out.

I still believe Wings were simply gassed... next Monday will be a much more accurate test. Also, even though the Wings were outplayed, I still think the refs let the Bruins get away with a LOT of holding, especially holding against Pavs. Nevertheless, I am not worried at all about the Wings. One thing is for sure... we need to assemble our key playoff 3rd line of Anderson, Nyquist, Tatar and then just have the 4th line be veterans like Boston.

Hank- Pavs- Abby

Franzen-Weiss- Alfie

Nyquist-Anderson-Tatar

Cleary-Helm(when back)-Bertuzzi/Miller

IMO this will be the best use of the lines for the Wings

The problem is they won't call up nyquist. If it was me and I couldn't have nyquist up I would seriously consider these lines...

Brutal game looked exhausted from puck drop. Bruins looked great. Hopefully Oct 14th we'll be rested and Bruins will be dead.

I really don't think that the lack of Nyquist was the difference tonight.

I don't hate it. I really like the idea of having a fast, high energy third line.

I thought the young guys are the reason the Wings played so much better in last year's playoffs than the year before. That 3rd line rejuvenated the team. Now, Brunner is gone, while Nyquist is in the minors.

That early goal in the 2nd was deflating.

We can play with and beat that team. We just need to continue to improve throughout the year.

You classify a 38-25 shot advantage as being outplayed for 55 minutes? The Canes' announce team was talking about how the team was simply hanging on for most of the game.

Here's a poem.

Holland and Babs

better FIX

the bottom SIX

Especially the fourth line looking at Boston's and Toronto's heck even the Canadiens fourth line is making me think, if we are ever going to see something at least close to that?

these ate exactly the type of games were having an energy line comes in handy...tired stars, not much going right so a good fourth line can really help out.

To be honest - looks to me like Abby blindsided Marchand.

Abby better grow eyes on the back of his head real soon.

Yeah, I think so. Very surprised there's no suspension coming.

Anyway, Boston are a very good team. Bergeron, Marchand, Ericsson, Iginla, Krecij, Chara, Rask - they've got a lot of good players, and they had time and space all over the ice this game.
