Well we got to see a relatively healthy Wings team this series. And they weren't nearly as good as we thought they'd be. Big changes this off season. Series is over. I've never seen the Wings so roundly outplayed in a series. Even the sweeps were more competitive. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

Nyquist has been a complete non factor every time he touches the puck it goes back to boston

If only the Wings had someone with offensive talent in Abs spot this game would have been over in the first minute of overtime.

Can not turn the puck over like that on a long pass, can't go for the homerun stretch pass every chance in OT. It's as good as a turn over.

They're CLEARLY just the better team. This game should have never gone to OT anyway. I can't believe Marchand missed those open nets.

This is pretty much playing out like a team that made the playoffs by 2 games against the presidents trophy winners. 

 

Monster in relief was impressive, there was zero control over the OT goal, you can't stop a double deflection like that. We had our chances, and didn't capitalize. 3 straight or done.

Exactly like the Nashville series, split on the road, s*** the bed at home. Now granted this effort was the best of the series, and Z was a warrior out there, but he had no help. Nyquist is scared to death out there, Franzen is floating, Babs has Legwand wasting away with Glendening and Miller. Nothing going our way, the kind of bounce Boston gets in OT is when the hockey gods tell ya it's not your year.

The Bertuzzi line saw way to much time in OT. I know you like to say you want to run four lines but when you need that next goal that s*** line shouldnt be touching the ice unless another gets stuck in long shifts.

The team is just not good enough.
Alfie not in
Big E not in
Weiss could have been atleast a small factor is not in

They played really well but will not last a series against a team like Boston. The wings is still built for the West. Thet may have been up in the series if they were in the West.

Franzen needs to go. I get sooooooo frustrated watching him. It's like he's playing a preseason game. He has no backcheck and he gives the puck away too much.

For some reason, teams like Dallas and Columbus are doing pretty good against the higher seeds.  We don't have less talent than those squads.  

 

We just don't have a team that believes in its coach and the attitude in the organization isn't correct.

Someone like Vanek who could have been gotten with a late round pick? Naaaah.

 

Instead we give up more for a 4th line center.

There was no attempt to win this game after we scored the 2nd goal. Babcock failed the team in OT by trying to change every time we had the puck. However, if Holland would have upgraded Kindl or Lashoff we probably wouldn't have turned the puck over 151 times tonight on the 1st pass in the neutral zone.

It was bound to end that way. The 4th line was awful all night and Babs played the hell out of them.

The Wings can hang with the Bruins in spurts, but overall they are just the superior team. It's a shame the Red Wings from the first period disappeared over the course of the game.

The Wings are always a defensive miscue waiting to happen and the Bruins are good enough to take advantage. That's not ideal in a series where you are struggling to score goals anyways. The kids are overmatched and Franzen/Legwand bring absolutely nothing to the table.
