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.

For a coach that lives by "starting on time", he sure can't seem to ever get his team to do it.

He was thanks to the impressive effort of our defence. Howard cannot be counted on to win important games


Are you arguing the defense has played at the same level all season and Howard just declined?

Yikes, worst loss of the season given the opponent and dire need for points in the standings. Wings controlled most of the play, but they gotta find a way to win that game.

Hopefully Pav and Kronner are back Thursday and Cole isn't seriously hurt. This is a full-fledged desperate situation to even get into the playoffs now.

Perfect example of officiating by the score and based on recent penalty calls. Stick held for 15 seconds and it's overlooked.

Guarantee Smith is flopping again.

Okay im as big a howard supporter as the next guy, and i love the guy. But do you guys honestly think we could win the cup with him? He can be a dominant goalie but not consistently which concerns me. hes dominant, but he also has horrible games... kinda frequently. Not trying to hate on howard just sayin..


This team wouldn't win the cup with Carey Price right now.

Abby! I think he could seriously be the Wings MVP this season. Nice pass by Kindl too.

The A on Ericsson's jersey is to designate him as atrocious.

It is funny. We were happy to leave the west cause we were finding it easier to play against Eastern teams but now that we're here we're better against Western teams

 

6-0 against Nashville, St. Louis and Chicago this season. Can't beat Montreal or Tampa Bay for anything, though. 

 

I think I'll still pass on those 10:30 start times.

Interference reference. Took three minutes.
