#2470872 1/4 GDT : Red Wings 5 @ Stars 1

Posted by GoWings1905 on 05 January 2014 - 12:12 PM

Jimmy obviously bailed the team out in the first when things could have gone south quickly. That's the type of performance the Wings need more consistently with Howard while they battle injuries and likely aren't going to be scoring five goals very often. 

 

Also, I think it's absolutely clear now from the past couple games that Brendan Smith should never be paired another second with Kyle Quincey. Smith has looked composed and much more assertive jumping in offensively playing with Kronner. I would keep those two together and have E/DeKeyser on the second pairing. Whichever of Kindl/Quincey is less of a disaster at the time with Lashoff then. 

 

Good win with a very tough three games looming in California.

Really unfortunate Helm can't stay healthy because we all know what a difference maker he is on the ice for the Red Wings.

 

It would be nice with Weiss out too for Helm to center the second line because I think most games the Wings need Z and Pavel together to carry the offense. Hopefully this isn't long-term and Helm will come back contributing offensively like he was before.

Both Toronto goals today were due to that last effort players are taking to score. We do not have players willing to do that and we lost. 


Bozak throwing his stick up and having a point shot hit it is extra effort, but Abby driving the net hard to tie the game isn't?

The Red Wings loss today had nothing to do with compete level. That was the best 60 minute performance they have put together in awhile.

c'mon that was a piss poor performance in the shootout for jimmy the winning goal was flubbed and still went through a huge hole he left open. he was determined to lose that shootout. once again we lose a game we would have won if gus was in net. but morale victories right


Jimmy was great the first 65 minutes. I highly doubt he was determined to lose the shootout, given the stakes and his competitive nature.

It's hard to be upset with the Wings effort today. They were the better team and if they duplicate that in upcoming games, wins will follow.

Is there a more fitting outcome given this season? Red Wings played well and probably deserved better, but that's how it seems to be going.

January is a brutal month in terms of the schedule. Really gotta find a way to string some wins together and display some consistency.

Awesome event, no less. Enjoyable to watch despite the disappointing loss.

Besides the obvious stupidity of Cleary on the PP, he is taking faceoffs while not being a center. So, the Wings start chasing the puck right away.

I'm not quite sure what the infraction was that Abby got called for. Looked like a harmless play.

NBC is garbage. Are the Penguins playing today? Enough with highlights of them and injecting Crosby into every discussion.

Ozzie forgot he was mic'd up there or just doesn't care. "I'm f****** freezing!"

First game was pretty cool, but this second game is going to be awesome. Can't wait to see the reactions for Stevie and Nick.

Wings have been playing well since the end of the second and Jimmy Howard has completely wrecked their chance to win. Control the play and Nashville comes down the ice for two shifts and it ends up in the net both times. The forwards have been working hard and Howard can't make a single save.

Why did Jimmy play that puck to no one when the Wings needed a change? Four very bad goals tonight. Monster should start the Winter Classic.

Nice energy shifts at the end there. Babs just needs to stick with some lines and let them work together for more than a period.

But Eaves took his place. We're not short.

I thought they had enough forwards. OK, I'm back to really hating these idiotic lines.

How about Babs get it together and stop sticking our best players with anchors? Tatar-Dats-Bert, Nyquist-Z-Abby, it's not that difficult. No Dano, and No Abby+Bert. And another PK upcoming, yikes.


His lines are a complete joke. Tatar gets one period as a first liner? Why even keep Jurco up if Babs is going to throw him on the fourth line? It has to be absolutely demoralizing sometimes being a young player in this organization with Babs and Holland around.
