Quincey's absolute failure is amplified now that Smith can't absorb some of the blame.

Remember when Smith played that one game with Oulette? Smith looked so much better. Quincey is the problem, not Smith. Sure Smith is young and will make mistakes. But it's not like he has anyone to bail him out when he does so they are amplified.

That was terrible coverage, guess thats what happens when you have 3 rookies (Lashoff, Ouellet, and Dekeyser) and then add that Failure of a Dman named Kyle Quincey.... sigh.... I don't mind growing pains from the kids but Quincey needs to find a new team after this season.

he made the initial stop. malone shouldn't have had that much time to reload

It was the slowest lateral movement I have ever seen and sure he made the first stop and then he fell flat on his face and opened up the entire net.

But sure the defense wasn't exactly ideal either but he should've had that one.

Man, it seems like Detroit haven't had a PP in 10 years.

That's four consecutive periods without a PP. No offensive pressure means very few PP's. They don't go hard to the net and they haven't worked hard in the corners thus far. Little reason for the refs to call a penalty against the Lightning when they've been playing offense most of the night.

Not a bad period, the Wings gotta find a way to generate some offense. Other then ZDB we're struggling to get anything going.


Man Henrik Zetterberg seems like a cool dude. Not many guys can have a decent interview with John Keating.

Detroit is a disaster in the neutral zone. Errant passes and no speed. They give up possession of the puck far too easily.

This. Tampa's not playing amazing by any means but we're giving them the puck over and over. Even Datsyuk has been mishandling pucks in the 1st period. And we're losing a lot of faceoffs so that doesn't help.

2nd line looks pretty good. Lashoff messed up on the goal. Quincey sucks.

It may not have seemed like it, but that was an absolutely godawful period. We didn't do a single thing right, except score a goal off a gift-wrapped turnover. We're not playing our possession game. We have no structure. We're not making tape-to-tape passes. We're not establishing a heavy forecheck, or, really, any kind of sustained pressure at all. We are an ungodly mess in the neutral zone, and our own zone, turning the puck over at very nearly every single opportunity.

There is arguably not a single team in the league playing as poorly as we've been playing.
