#2511620 Lucic Spearing DeKeyser

Posted by GoWings1905 on Yesterday, 07:31 PM

 

That's ok...we'll give Boychuk the green light to take nail your 2 starts...oh wait...Z's out so we'll nail Dat's and Nyquist. You'll see what it's like to be the Eastern Conference version of the Nashville Preds...1st round bounce.

 

I think they can handle it unless you mean some stupid maneuver like Lucic pulled. If Game 1 was any indication, the Bruins physicality isn't going to throw the Red Wings off their game. My point was Lucic or Marchand would be offended if one of their skilled guys got Kronwalled by a clean check, yet Lucic has the audacity to spear someone in the junk for no good reason. 

 

Not sure what the Wings have to do with Nashville either. 


Last I looked you guys don't have any serious fighters that can chuck knuckles. You guys might have the speed and skill but you don't have the muscle. 

 

How has that muscle done containing that speed and skill through five meetings so far this season?

Bulls*** from Lucic saying he won't do it again. Of course he will -- as long as the league doesn't punish him in any form. Did the same thing to Emelin, so it's not like this is some random act from Lucic. He's a scumbag. The officials never miss a slight hook 150 feet from the play and then let spearing go.

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.

It will probably change closer to game time, but I'm not nervous or anything about this series. Just looking forward to watching the Red Wings in the playoffs after a challenging regular season is a treat alone. Anything they do from this point on is just a bonus and the future is very bright regardless. 

 

That being said, I still want to win badly. It's a monumental task, though the Red Wings have been up for every obstacle thrown at them. Not sure they have enough to beat the Bruins four times, but they will absolutely be tough to eliminate. 

 

Let's Go Red Wings!  :stanley:

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.
