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.

Reimer is terrible. The Leafs look like the most vulnerable team around the Red Wings right now.

Haha, Babs is the man. "Thank God we didn't have any team doctors here or Kronner would have been out a month."

He laughed, but probably some underlying sincerity and frustration.

Yes, screw the people who take an honest rational look at his play and voice their concerns.
 
The world needs less rational people and could use a few more who blindly praise people based on selecting only the info that supports them and ignoring the info that contradicts their presuppositions.


He was fantastic today. That isn't blind praise. Also, you do realize there are plenty of people here on the opposite end of the spectrum regarding Howard, right?

Great PK to end regulation for the second consecutive game. Smith should be first star -- that might have been his most complete game in his career. Legwand, Sheahan and Kindl were all good too.

Officiating was horrendous, but what's a little more adversity for this group? Keep rolling with Jimmy tomorrow. He is playing well and getting wins.

The call wasn't all that bad.  Franzen did bump the goalie, but it really didn't prevent him from making the save. 


Franzen only made contact because he got knocked into the goalie. Not like he was the one that even initiated the bump.
