The kid line is skilled, but they compete so damn hard every shift. Maybe the veterans could do the same too soon.

That went well. Good urgency and execution for a huge game.

I don't want Alfie back for any price. Already have too many forwards next season and he just hasn't stepped up with the injuries.

Glendening's line played way too much. They aren't going to help when trailing in a game. Better hope the kids bail the Wings out because Franzen doesn't appear to be having fun again.

What a nightmare. Nice showing following a terrible effort in Columbus. This defense is just awful at everything -- coverage, moving the puck, chipping in offensively.

Howard has to stop that shot. Weak goal.


That was a nice shot. What was the four million dollar d-man doing?

Has Bertuzzi ever made a pass forward? Everything is backwards or cross-ice through five bodies.

Interesting strategy to play defense exclusively against a backup goalie.

Ref show tonight. Maybe they can allow us to watch some hockey soon.

Does anyone else hate having Andersson on the wing as much as I do?  Slow and doesn't score...awesome.  He's good defensively and at faceoffs, I get it, but if he's not going to play center (where those things matter) then why bother?


I mostly hate having him on the team at all, but I do agree with you. Just don't see how Andersson has any long-term spot in the organization when guys are healthy. He's about the eighth best center and only slightly better than Emmerton.

Not sure it was deserved, but that's a huge point. Thankfully Nyquist and Tatar bring it every game.

That second point sure would be nice. Maybe Franzen can skate some in OT since that hasn't really occurred through 60 minutes.

The PK is clutch. Some huge kills late in regulation the past few games.

Koivu gets away with everything. That honestly all started though with Smith turning the puck over. Wings have to start skating and applying pressure. Blew another two-goal lead at home, but this one was well deserved.

Ferraro is not very good. Hate to make a snap judgment, but there is just nothing impressive about him so far.

Howard is stealing this game right now. The Wild are controlling play.

Really wasn't a very good period, but the result feels nice. Gus learned something from Z about carrying the team on his back.

Jimmy was the difference. Could have easily been a deficit before Nyquist got loose.

Different day, different refs, same nonsense.
