E will never have another kid, but the Wings might actually win this game now.

That's why Helm deserves no part of playing on a line with Pav. Get Tatar there instead.

Nothing good happens with Franzen out there. Vacated the right point off the faceoff for some unknown reason.

What a waste of Weiss. The Red Wings can't score goals for a month basically and he's on the fourth line still. Babs needs to break up the Euro Twins, too. Tatar with Pav, Gus with Z and build from there.

Babs is sucking the life out of these games trying to win 2-1 every night. The best stretch of hockey the Wings played this season was when they scored goals in bunches and played more wide open. The forwards are the strength of the team. I get trying to gut out wins a year ago, but it isn't necessary nor advantageous with the personnel anymore.

I criticize Babs quite a bit for his lines and TOI management, but Abby has been just fine this season. 9 goals, 18 points in 30 games is excellent production.

I think the larger concern is guys like Glendening, Miller, Helm and Franzen receiving better linemates and more chances than Weiss, Tatar and Jurco. Last night was the perfect example. The Wings get down a couple of goals, Helm goes into the top-six and then we barely saw Weiss or Jurco. Franzen has one goal in 15 games and is -13 this season. Weiss and Jurco have made just about any line they have played on better, yet they somehow always find themselves in the non-skilled fourth line role.

Lol.  Glendening and Miller had more ice time than Weiss and Tatar tonight. 

 

Completely inexcusable nearly all of the time -- even more in a game where the Red Wings were only shorthanded once.

Can't win games when you don't play for an entire period. The Wings better end that bad habit real quick with a ton of road games and tough opponents coming up the next two months. They played well in spurts, but need more intensity for 60 minutes on a consistent basis.

The defense is just sorry, though. That's a problem that can't be fixed with effort or starting on time. Ouellet needs to be up permanently and Holland has to get creative and make a move for a top four d-man after failing to for years. The Wings aren't getting to the next level with this crop of d-men.

It was an obvious high stick what are people complaining about?


Not sure it was all that obvious in any sense. One, I don't think it's certain that Tatar actually ever did touch the puck with his stick. Two, I never saw an angle where Tatar's stick was definitively above crossbar height. Third, and most importantly, the initial call on the ice was a goal -- despite what those clowns claimed after the fact. So, technically they needed conclusive evidence to overturn it, which didn't exist.

Gus! What a shift and individual effort. Looked like Z taught him well protecting the puck.

No shootout!

9-1-2 when Stephen Weiss plays. I'm not sure what the effect is, but damn it he needs to be healthy.

Well, this is a lot more fun. The Wings needed this for their confidence.

Great night all the way around except for everyone's favorite player.

I hate when Franzen skates up along the boards and fires a wide high shot hard enough that it rings around the glass and goes ALL THE EFFIN WAY BACK DOWN INTO OUR END.


You had me sold after the first five words alone.
