#2586892 Petr Mrazek is the #1

Again, technically, Howard DID give up the GWG to the Isles.... just saying...he could have made that big save when we needed it!

 

Or Mrazek could have made any save before it reached that point.

Poor refs or not, the Wings have been shorthanded ten times in a game and a half now. That's just lack of discipline in many cases.

Halak seems pretty beatable himself if the Wings stay out of the box and don't keep gift-wrapping the Islanders goals.

Well I missed this one.  How'd we look?  I mean, clearly four goals and a shutout means we looked good.  But anybody got a run down?


Started on time. All four lines played well at even strength. Much more energy and attention to detail than they have shown all month. Tampa Bay rarely got anything sustained offensively and the PK was exceptional.

Oh, and Abby is officially a sniper.

#2586363 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

I think the difference with this team and the other teams we had with terrible stretches is that we just arent that good.
 
 
We stole points with heroics probably 7 times in the first 30 games. That was clutch as ever, but it has to be mentioned.
 
The cup winning teams had the best roster in the NHL and we knew it. Everyone else knew it. Do you really see a cup contending team when you watch us play? 


The Wings have like nine shootout losses too. Even four more wins and they are well within the playoffs and fighting for home ice.

AFTER that yeah... And I didn't have a problem with him then and went out of my way to say how well he was doing! Didn't you read my spiel about changing opinions with changing situations?


After when? The thread you made after the second game of the season? You never gave Howard a shot. Now, he struggles and you can claim you were right all along. Your opinion on the matter has been consistently anti-Howard.

*Looks through Howards recent stats*
 
*80% bad*


You were writing the script in October.

Best team performance all month. PK was terrific and the Wings cut way back on the turnover plague.

Gotta roll with Mrazek again tomorrow.

Two extra minutes for being up 3-0.

Gus! I knew hockey would be fun again someday.

There we go! Babs is a genius after all. Andersson third line center is paying off.

The Wings look like a competent hockey team today so far. Small win, but this period has been pretty good.

Too little too late. They played well in the third, but it has to be constantly deflating when you battle back and neither goalie can make a save in response. Mind you, the defense and turnovers deserve plenty of blame as well. 

 

Weiss and Pulkkinen both need to play more at even strength. I know Babs is stubborn, but when your team's season is on the line, you gotta make adjustments and find a way to maximize your chances at winning games. 

 

Pav has to come back on Saturday, but even then, he isn't going to suddenly fix everything that has gone wrong this past month. They have to collectively dig down and play 60 minutes of hockey that isn't marred by miscues and careless passes.

Weiss made that slick pass in front to Helm. He needs to play -- Babcock is only to give him four minutes anyways, but he does things during them at least.

I don't care how ugly it is, the Wings need to get two points out of this game for so many reasons.

Probably not the savior. Nobody can magically fix this team with the turnovers and Ericsson inexplicably playing on the first pair all season.

Don't think the goalie matters. The Wings are just a dumpster fire all the way around.
