Wow, we lucked out there. Loved their hustle and heart but stop the sloppy passing and boneheaded plays in your own zone, guys.

I didn't realize we had 2 games in hand on so many teams. As long as we don't lose a bunch and we win next game against Toronto, playoffs are in reach.

Gotta get some bodies back, though.

Goose with 25 points in last 20 games.  Mule clearly wasn't calling him out.

Miller was good but I agree about ice time. How were Franzen, Nyquist, etc. Not tops in time?

this game reminds me of Game 6 in '08 vs. the Pens

 

exact same scoring sequence

 

2-0, then 2-1, then 3-1, then finished 3-2

 

complete with both Wings' goalies making big saves at the end

 

now if only our defense corps could also remind me of the one we had in '08....

The nerves are still on the fritz. I mean, I'm at a point where I've reconciled that there may be an upside to missing the playoffs in terms of giving Dats and Z more time to recover without pushing through pain and possibly having setbacks. A higher draft pick would be nice. I can wrap my head around the positives of it all. But damn, the drive to make it isn't something you can just turn off, and it feels good to win a game like that.

 

And it felt great erupting with joy for Alfie's goal. Proved to be huge, and hopefully he can build off it. He still looks a bit gassed from the Olympics, but it's just good to get a cold streak out of the way. It's too bad we're not healthier, because with a quick rest, I think Alfie could come back a lot stronger. Anyone who thinks he's not still a valuable asset is just off the mark. There might be better options in the off-season, but there might not be, and we're lucky to have him this year.

Obviously huge two points. It might have been lights out with a loss.

Gus and Jimmy with great performances. Lots of mistakes and sloppy defensively, but somewhat expected given the players out there.

Hopefully E is OK. That third period was ugly without him. It's basically Kronwall and DeKeyser plus four mistakes on defense.

And I know E went down, but anyone want to take bets on how many hours will pass before we hear about the next forward to go down? I'm thinking 15, maybe 16 hours? Sadness.

Imagine if we'd had Nyquist for the whole season. He'd be closing in on 30 goals, and we'd be solidly in the playoff picture.

And while we may not have had a great 3rd period, but bear in mind, we've had a lot of bad 3rd periods and we typically end up losing or heading to a shootout to lose. We pulled it off tonight. Ugly as it may be, we found a way to win. That's a positive worth acknowledging despite the issues. They obviously have to improve, but they didn't quit and scored a couple goals to ensure that we didn't lose or head to OT.

Honestly, the masochist in me in kinda starting to like this whole we-don't-actually-have-any-NHL-players-left-but-we're-still-winning-games things. And Ericsson really hasn't been all that great lately. Maybe Ouellet gets a look?

Gutsy effort, hard work will get you a long way's even with this hybrid AHL/NHL lineup we are icing.  If we make the playoffs and get healthy we will be the scariest 8 seed ever.

Seems these days anyone with 3 working limbs and blood in their veins will get a look  :scared:

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 !!
