If we can out-shoot the competetion 43-26 every night, I'm pretty sure we will win more than we lose.  SO aside, I thought Jimmy looked strong tonight.

 

Reasons we lost

 

1)  Bernier

2)  Refs.  No misconduct for Lupul, ignored all the Leafs hooking and holding in the first 2 periods when we were outplaying them, bogus call on Kindl

3)  Bernier

4)  3 gilt edged chances landing on the stick (or not) of Dan Cleary

5)  Bernier


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

No Yandle or Ryan on the Olympic roster?? 

 

No room for Yandle, Brooks Orpik has to play.

Well, he's definitely the 3rd goalie. Don't really see him playing much at all.

Which is why I'd rather he just not go, honestly.

Great, entertaining game. But I have to say the Wings are the biggest shootout chokers, ever.

Sure wish Cleary would somehow stop being completely useless. 3 grade A chances completely wasted by him.

 

 

Which probably no other player would have gotten. Regarding his abilities Datsyuk for example was nearly invisible out there. Cleary wasn't good so far in this season but in this game he was one of our best. Can't get all the hate today.

 

Is it wrong of me to think they picked Howard for the Olympics in part for the Winter Classic announcement potential?

 

To be clear I think he played great today up to the shootout, but don't think he really deserved the Olympic nod based on his play this season (plus I'd rather he have the break).

 

Not at all. Based on this years play Bishop should have been the No.2-3. But it's still a long way to go till Feburary and God knows who's in good or bad shape then, so in my opinion Howard is a more save and solid choice over a goalie who played good for just two months. And Howie was good tonight.

c'mon that was a piss poor performance in the shootout for jimmy the winning goal was flubbed and still went through a huge hole he left open. he was determined to lose that shootout. once again we lose a game we would have won if gus was in net. but morale victories right

ridiculous! Howie made some huge stops in the game

Agreed, but I bet he will get plenty of rest. It will be an incredible experience for him :clap: .

Because Bylsma gets a homer card?

 

 

No Ryan or Yandle is a head scratcher.  Or even Jack Johnson, though I'm not really a fan of his.

Right?  And Eaves did not return so we played a forward short all game.  Advantage Leafs.

The US picked a lot of large, bruising forwards, but that team seems too slow for Olympic hockey on a large, international rink.

 

Talking about guys like Wheeler, Backes and Carlson.

Yes Dats was clearly invisible. Especially since he was the one who put the first chance for Cleary on a platter out front which Cleary flubbed. As well as being the only Wing who could consistently carry the puck into the Leafs zone while maintaining control and setting up the offense. Scored the only wings goal in the shootout. Yes I agree totally invisible.

We weren't going to win the Stanley Cup this year, so I REALLY wanted them to win this one at least... *sigh*

While that is certainly true, its also frustrating that these other teams come in and score with such ease on Jimmy by just taking a wrist shot...not sure why our guys have yet to truly figure that out

Fun game , we looked strong and very active. I will take that effort from here on out. Add a healthy Mule, Helm and get Weiss going and we will be in good shape this Spring.

And i would feel the same way had we won the shootout.

Now lets get the olympics behind us!

The best thing about the playoffs for the Wings....there is no shootout.  And they can call up as many Black Aces as the want.

He certainly wasn't Bertuzzi-invisible, but we all know what a factor he usually is. And he wasn't this game. I don't blame him, it must be pretty hard to play his kind game on a snowy surface.

Both Toronto goals today were due to that last effort players are taking to score. We do not have players willing to do that and we lost. 


Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Just have to add my traditional post game Tootoo stroke and say that this was a perfect scenario for 22 to be up. He's a mudder and those conditions today would have let him shine.

Tuzzi is getting to a point where he can't take the grind of the 82 game schedule and he's often been invisible this year.

Both goals came off clean faceoff losses.  Our centers should be forced to stay on that rink till midnight taking faceoffs.
