SO win on national tv. Incredible. Maybe a good omen.

 

AND an afternoon game.  Something is wrong, very wrong.

 

St. Louis fans must be nervous.  Losing their last 6 of the season?  Ouch.

I hope the wings practice breakaways in the off season, jeez. Great game though, awesome for Mrazek to get that shutout.

Even the best shootout guys have a success rate in the 40% range, which means they only score 4 goals on every 10 shots.  That's with having time to plan your shot.  Missing two breakaways isn't exactly shameful.

St. Louis has lost in the early rounds the last two years in a row.  Looks like three years this season, because I don't see them beating Chicago.

 

They're becoming a team that's only good for the regular season.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Which is odd because they seem likd they should be built for playoff hockey.

That's going to be a dynamite series. The best part? Someone's going to lose. :)

 Chicago hasn't exactly been dominant the last few months either.  They're both missing key players to injury. You just never know what's going to happen.  That's what makes sports, and especially the NHL playoffs such a blast.

I actually feel kind of bad for them also. They just can't catch a break. Just goes to show you how hard it is to win the Cup. Everything has to go right and staying healthy is a huge factor. I mean if they get knocked out of the first round because of injuries that would suck. Oh well, on the other side they probably wouldn't be feeling sorry for us.

 

I don't feel bad for them.  (Well, maybe for some of them.)

 

I usually empathize with hockey fans everywhere, but I had the misfortune of living in St. Louis for several years.  The core Blues fans are great, but they're a distinct minority.  The vast majority are idiots, who couldn't care less if their team ever won a Cup.  As long as the other team leaves the ice on stretchers, they're happy.  No coincidence that, for as long as most of us can recall, the Blues never fail to goon it up like crybabies every time they fall behind.  Just giving their "fans" what they want.

I've also had the same experience.  Nothing worse than a fanbase that acts like their team has actually won something in its 45+ year history, when in reality, it hasn't won squat.  

 

They'd probably lose to Chicago even if they were healthy.  Only difference is, their injuries made them drop in the standings in order to play Chicago instead of Minnesota or Dallas.  But still, the Blues are not a team that gets it done in the playoffs.

ST. LOUIS — The NHL has not officially released a playoff schedule, but the Detroit Red Wings are starting their first-round series against Boston on Friday.

Game 2 is Easter Sunday; the Wings are under the impression it will be an afternoon game on NBC, but they aren’t certain.

 

Game 3 will April 22 in Detroit, and Game 4 will be April 24, also at Joe Louis Arena. if needed, Game 5 shifts back to TD Garden, on April 26. A Game 6 would be April 28 in Detroit, and a Game 7 would be April 30, in Boston.

Babcock said Games 1 and 2 are Friday and Sunday in Boston.

Wings thought they'd be starting Thursday but apparently TV had other ideas.

Ok, I didn't really know this. I honestly don't know any Blues fan nor have I ever been to St. Louis so I would have no idea.

A nice positive at the very end of a very exciting season. Abby's hard work pays off with, as they say in soccer, a brace. The Wings are playing with confidence. They are playing fast and hard. They are a dangerous #8 seed. 

 

The Blues are a mess.

This is very positive for the wings. The longer layoff gives more rest for our vets and most importantly more time for Hank to be ready. Now instead of him returning in round 2 we will likely see him in game 6

Yes I'm aware, but aside from tatar's first I didn't even think they were good attempts. And it was 3 I thought? Not sure, either way though you can't argue that we're bad in the shootout.

Let's hope so! Though, man, the Blues have no pulse. Feel sorry for their fans. Looks like this probably won't be their year, after so much promise.

How many guys are hurt now?  And they don't have good players to bring up like the Wings had.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I'd rather have him logging up minutes with the Griffins. Monster is a good backup.

 

Not when he's always hurt.

Kinda sucks we don't start until Friday. I was hoping we would get a weekend home game this round but it doesn't look like we will.
