#2400483 WCQF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 2 @ Ducks 3 (OT) - (ANA leads series 3-2)

Can't clear the zone yet again.

Haunted them all night and really most of the series so far.

The five minute PP failure and Getzlaf goal after changed the game entirely. Wings had them on the ropes and the momentum instead went back to the Ducks.

The Red Wings will respond on Friday and force this to seven games.

Amazing play by Pav to get the puck ahead to Z. Gotta give Sammy credit for not drilling the glass on that rebound.

The next goal would be huge if they could get it.

We should probably bench Howard.

Knocked the hair right off his head!

Pav didn't get hurt, so it doesn't qualify.

That third period was everything good about playoff hockey. Nerve wracking, but exciting and full of action that didn't involve the officials.

Ericsson winner in OT. He's finally going to get a slap shot off in time and to the net.

The Wings are buzzing now. Problem is they miscue and it leads to a very quality Ducks scoring chance. Otherwise, everything is being controlled by Detroit.

Keep up the pressure and don't make costly mistakes.

Bertuzzi has his legs it appears. Put him with Pav and Z instead of Sammy. Might be able to control the puck down low and sustain some pressure with Bert there.

Come on, that was a nudge.

Call it soft both ways if you are going to subject the game to garbage penalties like that.

If something has been beyond brutal all season, why are we sticking with it still?

Obviously in reference to Quincey and Smith together.

Was at the game last night. The pre-game was awesome like usual and the atmosphere was electric. Unfortunately, everything after that point wasn't very memorable. 

 

- Didn't like the way Babcock played last change in this game. I wouldn't use top line against top line personally. I think it negates the one line the Wings need to have going at even strength. Let Filppula's line matchup against Getzlaf instead. They can handle their own defensively.

 

- Game was lost really in the first period. Too many chances on the PP and nothing to show for it. Why do they insist on making cute passes through the middle instead of shooting the puck? The guys at the point did very poorly getting shots through to the net as well.

 

- NHL officials are doing a real quality job ruining playoff hockey again. Nobody knows what a penalty is still on a nightly basis. Put the whistles away and let the players decide the damn outcome. 

 

- The Red Wings really miss DeKeyser and it was obvious. His speed and ability to move the puck out can't be replaced. The entire defense struggled with the Ducks forecheck and clearing the zone. They get pinned in deep and can't transition to offense because no one on defense can get the puck back and make the first pass out cleanly. Kindl and Lashoff especially broke down defensively. 

 

- Jimmy was good, even with the lopsided score. Could have been far worse before the Wings threw in the towel during the third without Jimmy keeping them in it prior to the collapse. 

 

Season rides on tomorrow night. Anything less than 60 minutes of desperate hockey will be disappointing.

With how badly the Duck's forecheck had the Wings frazzled in the 3rd, I want no part of White being in the lineup.


Agreed. White is the last of the three d-man options I want to see play on Saturday. Colaiacovo moves the puck well, so I probably prefer him slightly over Lashoff.

Shame about DeKeyser regardless. Stepped right in and played like a veteran. The Wings will miss his speed and sound defensive play on the back end. I thought he was the best d-man for the Red Wings in the first two games.

YES! What a beautiful play by Filppula and great finish by Nyquist. Wouldn't be how you draw it up, but it's 1-1 heading home and that's the only thing that matters now.

Can't wait to be at the Joe on Saturday night!

I'm not surprised that it's come to this at all.  Certainly our defensive corps stepped up, but we're still young and undisciplined.  Q&S should not be a pair. SHOULD NOT.
Overall, You're talking about a #2 seed that's been solid all year long vs. a team that backed their asses into the 7th seed and the playoffs. 
You guys all act like we're SCF bound when you know goddamn well we were praying for the playoffs!! 
...either that or you just like to bitchandmoanbitchandmoan no matter what we do.  f'ncrybabies.   yeah, you know who you are.


A 4-1 lead in the third should be more than enough to win a game, even being young and undisciplined. No one here realistically thinks this team is going to the SCF, but this series should be 1-1 right now. There's plenty of justification for being upset.

I think the Wings have to score on the PP with fresh ice to start OT or the Ducks are going to win this game.

Can't believe it even came to this.
