First NHL shut out for Coreau!!!   Wings win -- and I could not be more proud of them.  I just knew this was the game they would turn it all around.  Sooo happy!!

 

LGRW!!!  :wub:

 

What the hell just happened? Who are these guys, I'm very confused. My girlfriend asked me what I was mumbling about, going around here in the morning after having watched the first period repeating "Wings are leading 3 - nothing after the first..".

Great game but this schizophrenic stuff is getting to me.

Great game last night. Now the hard part. Keeping that going in our next game. We have had good games before this season only to be followed up with complete stinkers. Can we get 2 good efforts in a row? Something that is ENTIRELY on the coaching staff.

well this was a pleasant surprise to wake up to :D LGW 

Agreeing to this. Checked score before bed and it was 3 - 0 and figured would wake up to a 4-3 loss. Was VERY PLEASED. Now just need a Blue Jacket type streak to squeak into the playoffs...LOL

So, I'm actually watching tonight. Looks like Blashill has stumbled upon some good line combos. Glenny looks good back on the 4th, eh? I love 62, 51, 72. One change I make, drop Tatar to the 3rd with Sheahan and Nyquist. Move Larkin up with Z and Mantha. 

39 - 40 - 71

72 - 51 - 62

14 - 15 - 21

20 - 41 - 29

 

I was saying this same thing last night, and when we get 43 / 8 back slide one of them in at C and sit 15.

Great all around game.  FYI, after watching the post-game with AA and Blashill, the penalty shot call was on Dekeyser not AA.  After watching it again I can see why they called a penalty shot.  Dekyser didn't go for the puck, he just hooked the guy up at his shoulders.  Great defensive play by AA but a reasonable call.

Get up 3 early, buckle into the roller coaster ride, get out played terribly for stretches, hold on, regulation win. 2 points.    In all seriousness it was a good win.  We are still so bad in our own end for stretches but actually scoring some goals alleviates so much pressure. Congrats to Coreau on the shutout

Those stretches are called the Drew Miller experience.  We are basically short handed during them.

Sit 15 and 14. Put 43 and 8 in their spots on my 3rd line. Let 15 and 14 earn their way back in.

When Helm is back, I would rather put the Nyquist-Helm Vanek line back together. Those 3 had excellent chemistry for a 3rd line. Sheahan I agree with.

What sucked about last nights game was the ice time for the F's. AA was 9th out of 12. Nyquist was almost 16 mins. In fact AA, neilsson, and Vanek were 3 of the bottom 5 in ice time. The line that played the best was used the least. Think about that. Yes MANtha was the leader in mins which is good. But the #2 line was used to little.

AA had 14:44 of ice time, Nyquist had 15:42, Nyquist played 58 seconds more. You make it sound like one played 16min while the other played 5.

When you take into account real life game consequences (ie. A guy gets hit and takes a shift off etc) and the fact that they won 4-0 so Blashill easily could have been giving guys like Nielsen and Vanek rest, the ice time seems fine to me. Saying it "sucked" seems a bit over the top.

I'm not sure if you even watch the games.  Drew Miller is not Sidney Crosby but every time Miller Ott and Glendening are on the ice they work hard at least. Rarely make a mistake and mix it up a bit. Exactly what you want your 4th  line to do.  You can dislike the guy, thats fine, that's your opinion. You can think that bringing up Nosek or Callahan and benching Miller will be beneficial. Once again your opinion but at least pay attention to what is going on out there when he's on the ice. He does exactly what he's supposed to do.

Accountability has to be brought into the equation here. AA was held accountable for his play and bingo he gets 3 points.

He was 9th in ice time, which is what I said. Nyquist should be benched. AA and his line (he did just sit a game) should have been out there for 16-17 mins. There is no reason for the 3rd line to have more time on the ice than the second line which scored 3 goals to none. It shouldn't be close. But hey keep defending the management.

Advanced stats discredit your argument.  Drew Miller is the biggest driving force of the opponent's offense.  When he is on the ice, you can bet the puck will be in our end with a penalty or goal on the way.

IMO,  those three last game looked more unbelievable than if you reunited 14 with 43 and 62. I just feel 14 needs to sit to get the message across. There is no way AA nor Mantha should ever be a healthy scratch again.

Wow! Talk about a stretch lol. So now ice time is managements fault? Didnt know Holland was telling Blashill what lines to use and when to play people during the game.

As far as Blashill goes, I think he should be fired and I am not defending him if you are implying he is management (which he is not). I will call out hyperbole when I see it, and the majority of your posts are hyperbole. They won 4-0, relax.
