I missed the third due to my washer leaking water all over the floor. Seems like I didn't miss much other than a bad loss.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Horrible all around. Team looked like it wasn't even trying and two of those goals Howard let in I think he should've saved. So I'm not blaming this one on any one person, it's the teams fault today.

Franzen took the afternoon off, and Howard couldn't make a save with Quincey in front of him. Everyone else on the team had the best 3rd of their careers. Typical stuff.

Don't worry. I'm sure the washer was more entertaining.


I HATE JASON WILLIAMS

Lots of excuses. Bottom line is Howard has been not very good this whole season, Mule shows up for a couple of games then will return after 10-15 games, the defense has been questionable since Lids, Raffi, and Stuart left, and the heart and soul of this team Datsyuk and Z are out long term. Ken Holland needs to hit a grand slam this off season and get this team back to being a contender or be shown the door. If we were still in the west we would be dead last.

So would all the other teams that are battling for a playoffs spot in the east and the difference is that none of them have been nearly as injured as the Red Wings have been this year. Fact is, if the Wings get into the playoffs, which I think they will, and Pav and Hank are back, then that will be the worst nightmare for whoever is in first place. A healthy Red Wings team can easily compete with the Pens or the Bruins and to think otherwise is silly.

A win: "This team could be a contender when we're healthy!"

A loss: "We suck, we have no good players and everything is awful"

Yeah, freakin' bipolar.  I'm not too worried about the East, we have shown that even injured we can beat the good teams.  I don't think we'd run into real problems until the Conference finals.  The trouble is getting in.

I'm hoping the Mule comes back strong next game to "buck" the trend...on second though I hope everyone bucks it...

Nyquist always bounces back after a bad game. The key is the mental toughness to not let this loss turn into a streak of bad play

Haha bounce back? Mule and nyquist are the laziest players on our team, that's why they're first line. They will never bounce back, they are slumping and suck

We have players on this team that have been though it all before. You can lose 3-0 or 6-1 you just lose a game. We have to hope CBJ lose today and lose against us on Tuesday. Everyone has a bad night no need to panic yet.

I know you're being sarcastic, but I'll point out for everyone else; they've combined for 11 points and 28 shots since the Olympics..
