11/29 GDT : Stars 1 @ Red Wings 3

Recommended Posts

I did not like Blashill putting Kronwall, Ericsson and Zetterberg out there to start that 4-on-4 late in the third. There were other things I didn't like, but I thought we played pretty well overall and deserved the two points.

On a general note: I want to live in a world where Larkin, Mantha, Athanasiou, Jurco, Sproul and Ouellet are all in the lineup and doing awesome young guns things, like some kind of awesome young guns biker gang. Ouellet would of course be the leader of said hypothetical biker gang, because, seriously, that 'stache.

"Zetterberg to Mantha... SCORES!!!"

I've heard that quite a few times lately. Looks like a good chemistry to me. It seems to go under the radar but many of our young players  have shined as Zs winger. First Filpula, Hudler, Abdelkader eventually Nyquist, then Larkin, now Mantha. That's why I still appreciate having brokeback Zetterberg. Next bring Svetchnikov in, get him trained up as well and Z will have done his last duties to the org.

Well, it's been my (and some others) opinion for a bit that Smith should be the one traded and not XO. When Marchy gets back, he should be the rotator with Kronwall.

When Helm and aa get back, waive Miller and send Bertuzzi back to GR, just a business move, nothing personal.

Not a good visual...no.

Wings played decent until the third period. Blashill sends the defensive studs over the boards to protect the lead and they take penalties and give up the best scoring chances of the game. Fortunate to get a win in regulation thanks to Mrazek and some luck

This is the game we get from him when its clear that its his team. This is why i was glad when howard got injured and why i will be glad when he is gone. Mrazek is our guy blashill needs to keep rolling with him.

On another note, wings totally outcoached in that 3rd period. Jurco needs to play on the 2nd line and glendening needs to go back where he belongs.

It wasn't there to start the season when it was announced as his to lose. He lost it. I'm glad he won and had a great game but it's gonna take more than one strong W to convince me. Let's see if he can keep this up for a couple months and not go back into train wreck mode.

I understand your desire for Mrazek to get starts, possibly proving that Blashill should keep rolling with him, and maybe finally showing that he's our number one. I can even understand why you'd be glad when Howard gets traded,  but I'll never understand why you'd be glad to see a player on the team that you supposedly root for get injured.  ...but don't worry I'm not telling you "how to fan."

Glenny's only on that second line because AA is injured.   Jurco's been back how many games?  Let's let him get his feet underneath him before we go putting him on the second line.

When they scored off the first faceoff I thought oh no Mrazek is going to lose his cool but he just played better and better.  We were still lucky to win considering how many SOG they had and also a 5 on 3.  I will take 2 points either way though.
