#2511219 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

This team is remarkable. They just don't get rattled by any opponent or situation. Amazing 60 minute effort on the road against the best team in the league.

Playoff hockey makes everything else in sports look silly. That was a blast to watch.

Pav and Jimmy -- thank you very much! The great Howard showed up tonight. I'm gonna need hours to calm down from that win.

Get Franzen away from Pavel. I don't even care if Abby stays, but give Pavel a winger that is actually going to compete. Everyone else for the Red Wings has ramped up the intensity.

Smith is a better forward than Franzen.

Hate to say it but my prediction is Bruins in 6, maybe 5. No Zetterberg or Ericsson, going to favor Boston. Our defense is a mess and Howard isn't better than Rask. And of course anything can happen and I hope to God I'm wrong but I just don't see the Wings winning this one.


Agreed. With both of those two playing, I would seriously like the Wings chances of winning the series. Z is a playoff beast and E is really necessary to make the defense somewhat steady. The Bruins are a machine and I don't trust the Wings defense at all right now, let alone against a deep and big forward group.

Jimmy is going to have to be the goalie from last year's playoffs for any shot. Regardless, I'm stoked just to see playoff hockey from the Red Wings. They really shouldn't be there at all given the way the regular season went, so anything they do now is a bonus.

Quincey's mandatory penalty per game. The defense is a nightmare. It's like a competition between Lashoff, Kindl, Smith and Quincey each night of which can outdo the other in stupidity.

Get Abby off the top line. Talk about offensively inept.
 
I sure hope that isn't our top line in the playoffs.


Pathetic. Nothing like anchoring your best player with a lazy winger on one side and no-skill winger on the other. Put Jurco back on the kid line instead of Gus or up with Pavel. Abby needs to skate around and hit people on the fourth line, not be asked to play a first line role. Just not a fit at all.

What is Ericsson's status?

 

Better with one hand than Kindl or Lashoff with two.

What a total fluke. I hate the Penguins.

Boom! 23 consecutive playoff appearances!

That was a well-earned point.

Gus's struggles don't negate Howard's struggles


Except Howard hasn't really struggled lately. Everyone wanted Monster to start because he was winning games, even though his numbers weren't that great. Jimmy has been playing much better recently and winning games in the process.

That third goal tonight might cost the Red Wings a shot to clinch in a game they deserve at least a point.

Monster is awful. The Pens have about 15 shots and three have gone in the net. Sure, he won games the first half of the season, but his numbers aren't good at all after the new year.

Wings have controlled this game and then that goal goes in. Howard would have six pages of posts if he let that through.

Everyone hates on mule until playoffs


To be fair, he hasn't delivered in the playoffs for about four years now either. That was always his fallback for disappearing for long stretches during the regular season. Sad thing is, up until about three weeks ago, Franzen was very engaged throughout this season when healthy. Now, he's back to being a non-factor.

we should be getting some calls soon....


You would think, but remember who the Wings are playing here.

The Red Wings have controlled the game and the Pens have still gotten three consecutive power plays. How does that work? I don't want to see these idiots in the playoffs because the refs always give them the Crosby factor treatment.

Montreal is full of morons. Good for Jurco defending himself.

Typical night of officiating in the NHL.
