the overtime buzzer was a joke. everyone in the stadium was going insane. myself included.

 

im thinking the leafs and wings knew it was coming up and it might be why Z got so close to a breakaway

Too bad it came down to a skills competition but I still had fun. Although Toronto fans will never let us live this down. It was cold but manageable. It was colder last night at comerica. I couldn't believe what some people were wearing. Lots of people bailed starting in the first period.

I thought Howard played pretty damn good during the game, just not during the shootout.  I don't give the shootout a whole lot of weight in regards to overall performance though.

 

Also, I thought Tatar was hands down the best player on the ice for either team.....just not during the shootout.

And yeah after each and every loss we have someone to complain but not us. Jimmy sucked big time vs Nashville. He sucked today as well. But this clown will start next time anyway. Today it was Bernier who was a problem, Last game it was not-perfect-execution (in a game lost 4:6). Next game vs Dallas it will be thatf****** Russian junior Nichushkin who will suddently get his gamee going. Or Benn just dominating.

 

Did you even watch the game? Complaining is one thing but get your facts straight.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I'm not saying I'm not pleased with the game, I'm just saying overall Holland is getting more and more answers which is a good thing. The shootout is and always was a skills competition so it can go either way,
 
Conditions like this are just another statement on how good these guys are, I think I would have had a hard time seeing the puck.


Yes, the answer to missing three key players and nevertheless outplaying an entirely healthy team before losing in a skills competition. What does that tell you?

Howard's toe save in the 2nd was ridiculoso!

Both teams played great. Only watched the last three periods. I've got the stomach Flu though up twice today. It's awesome to know that players who haven't played in years for the Red Wings can score Goals and the players we've got can't. Tronto Maple Leafs Goalie played great so did ours. I'm in pain can't rant and such this day like I want to. Thanks Alumni Team winning both games and thanks for getting at least one point yet again Detroit. Were only going to get into the Playoffs this because of the you know Wild Card System.

I just pray they remove the POS-SO skills competition. Yay! Year 'round individual stick and puck! Awesome! Forget all that 65 minutes of team play! I was against it before and nothing will change my mind that the SO is pure garbage. A horrible gimmick that needs to be put down now. Otherwise, the 65 minute game was great!

If all stadiums were like that (108,000,outdoor/indoor) and tickets were 20 dollars, wouldn't they make the same amount of money if charging 50-100 for tickets at the Joe seating 38,000?

Right z has never gotten a breakaway before. It doesn't matter how much time is left you don't give someone a breakaway cause the buzzer might go off shortly. That buzzer was unnecessary, completely ruined the flow of overtime

Tough warmup for liles. I might have swapped him for Quincey, they'd both still get to play.

Almost didn't go.. ticket plans fell thru and ended up buying them on the way to Ann Arbor to celebrate new years with my friend the night before and I'm so glad I did.

It was freezing cold and unfortunate that we couldn't get the win but I don't even care, what an incredible experience :)

LGW!

Also nice to follow it up with a rose bowl win. 2014 has been pretty great so far!

Very good game by our team despite the loss.If we could put the same effort every game we'd be fighting with the Pens and the B's for the the #1 spot in the east.

Had a great time at the game, but a win would've definitely been nice.  98% of the Toronto fans were cool.

great spectacle for the game, but the bottom line is we dropped below the leafs in the standings and missing the playoffs is starting to look a reality more so now. i just hope we can get a settled consistant side for the final 20 games.

For people who went, how was the view? I always thought the downside of playing in a giant football stadium would be that you couldn't see the puck way in the back.
