JH is NOT ready for showtime.  Good luck USA ... but he'll probably be bench warming in Sochi.

Howard gives us a save or two tonight, and we win. That's the bottom line, after the Abby fight, the Wings absolutely dominated the game. Gave up 2 odd man rushes, and they ended up in our net. Gus for the WC, please.



Any way we can pick up a Kings goalie once Quick returns?

So Abby fought Carrie Underwood's husband?  

 

Too bad I missed it.  Lilja would have destroyed that milksop.  

Yeah Abby was beating on her lap dog.

 

Honestly not sure if he landed but one or two punches but the Underwood humor possibilities are endless.

"Youknow if we acore 3 its a big night for us." -mike babcock

The average GAA among nhl goalies is 2 goals.

Howard SINGLE HANDEDLY lost us this game.

What a joke the guy has been.

With the way the Rangers and Sens are playing, this team doesn't make the playoffs.


Strangely I think that is what it will take to give this team a big time makeover
HEY HEY HOCKEYTOWN!

our defense can't actually play defense, nor can it transition to offense

 

gotta be able to do at least one of those things to have a chance in this league

 

or have a goalie who can stand on his head night in and night out

 

we haven't had any of those things this season

 

we never adequately replaced the losses of Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Stuart, and I know there's no replacing a guy like Nick, but it seems Holland really has effed up the entire D corps the last couple of years

Wings had no energy for the first period and a half, but right after that hit from behind on Hank, they got going. Why did they have no energy?

 

Well it is simple. Howard was letting almost everything in. It is very deflating for a team when your goalie is letting in what should be very routine saves. He let in 3 goals tonight that should have been saved, and Monster would have saved. In my opinion, Monster should be our starter until Howard gives us reason to believe otherwise. 

 

Aside from goaltending, I thought the Wings really dug deep in the 3rd and worked hard. Pavs and Hank looked much better playing together, Abby and Helm had fantastic games, Kronners, Danny D, Quincy all had strong games. Smith had the one shift he messed up on, but we would not even be talking about that had Howard covered the puck when he had the chance. 

 

Lastly, Eaves once again had a great game!!! IT BAFFLES ME that Babcock sits a guy like Eaves for CLEARY who does nothing!

For the first time in my 20+ years as a Wings fan, I feel like I'd be ok with us missing the playoffs. This team is a dumpster fire.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

You can't expect to win very often when you give up five goals.  Howard has to be better than that.

Just saw the "highlights" Damn, I wish Jimmy could figure out what is vexing him and get back on track. Not as much help from the D as there has been in the past.

And this is why I can't stand Babcock.  This WC is not just a friggin show it's still a regular home game and we need to win.  Obviously Babock doesn't get this and hasn't for a long time.
