I’m beginning to see where Babcock’s crush on Glendenning is coming from. Amazing game for him tonight. He manhandled Kane when they went head-to-head.

I've always hoped Eaves would be able to get in a groove with his terrific wrister. We all know he had 20 in a season once in his career, and whenever he uses that shot you can see how. He isn't the greatest skater in the world, but he works hard, good PK guy, and when he shoots it like he did tonight, it makes you wonder how he doesn't score more regularly.

I don't agree with the Hawks beating us 4 out of 5. Just something about Chicago that brings the best out of this team. I miss the west for that very reason. 

 

On another note, how good was Jurco tonight? It was by far his best game of the year as a Wing.

Didn't we lose something like 9 out of the last 10 meetings before moving East? Other than the playoff series they've kinda had our number, though I agree Wings always play with effort against them. 

 

As for Jurco he was terrific. Really physical. Great bounce-back game after what I thought was maybe his weakest game as a Wings against the Blues. Tatar-Shehan-Jurco had some simply amazing shifts.

Not to over-do it, but, WHAT A FREAKING HOCKEY GAME. The kind you want to detail in dramatic story form to the nearest sentient being, be it a friend or your pet cat.

 

I'd forgotten how much I love beating the Chicago Blackhawks. Sooooooo satisfying.

Negative Nancy time.

 

This win doesn't mean a DAMN thing if we don't beat Montreal and Florida in these next two games.

 

If we can play like that against Chicago, we have no business losing to those two teams.

God showed up, and his name is JONAS!


I hope this is a joke, he was one of our worst tonight, he was very shaky, we were lucky to come out on top of that one. The rest of the team however played pretty well aside from Quincey and smith with some boneheaded decisions

Florida will crush us. Because the universe and physics.

 

Habs game is up in the air. Unless we play like we did tonight. But I'm not expecting that.

Absolutely! But this game was FUN! I bet most of us wouldn't be feeling so bad about this season if we had more games like this. Kids playing big roles, offensive hockey, fun times. It's amazing what a difference it makes when Bert, Cleary and Sammy aren't dragging 3 out of 4 lines down. Now they dragged 1 way down into -3 territory, but in a way that's almost better because it frees the other ones up to do offense. 

 

Montreal is struggling and we're just plain better than Florida. No excuses. One thing though: we need better goaltending.

Truly. Monster was clutch in the shootout, but man oh man did he look shaky for most of the game. I mean, I get that that's sort of the way he plays, but this was NOT the Monster we grew so very fond of earlier this season.

I like Hossa, but that's a stupid statement coming from a veteran player. I don't want to sound like the Red Wings are flawless characters, but I can't imagine someone like Z, Pavel or Kronner ever coming out and accusing another team of something like that. Professionalism seems to always reside within the Red Wings organization, though Hossa isn't exactly surrounded by models of exemplary behavior in Toews and Kane.

Yes he was really shakey but he made some key stops late in the third and then stopped the last 3 shooters in the shoot out so it made up for it in my opinion

To be fair, we have a bit of a reputation for being...dickish trolls, for lack of a better way to put it. Many players on many different teams across many years have voiced similar complaints. We saw a bit of it right out in the open with Zetterberg-Toews in last season's series with these 'hawks. Even Z's little request at the beginning of tonight's shootout (he asked the stripes to check around Crawford's crease, make sure there wasn't any snow built up around it. That was 100% about messing with Crawford.)

In all fairness, they are great players and they didn't have a roster of hall of famers to learn from.
They were drafted high and counted on from day one.
Chicago's success of late is because of them, but you can't compare them to pav. And z, kronner or the wings because our character has always been exemplary....
But passed from generation, to generation.
Its obnoxious the amount of greats we've had here, they're learning on the fly.
And they're still young, but none of them, ever disrespect our franchise.
Hossa is kind of a different story.
He's a journeyman scorer that's already played for us, let him try to grab onto whatever excuse he has for losing to our lowly struggling, mostly ahl-er team..

The best part of the night was walking out of the arena as they played "the night Chicago died" on the sound system.

 

Hee.

 

Loved the fourth line tonight.  I'm ready for a youth movement.
