#2387070 4/20 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Canucks 2 (SO)

Cory Emmerton has developed into a very solid role player. One of the few players that has exceeded expectations this season.

Nyquist needs more minutes. Something good has happened most of his shifts the past two games. Enough of this defensive responsibility nonsense. The top-six needs offense.

How is that not a penalty on Roy on the face off? They have called that all season.

Typical garbage officiating by Brad Watson. Someone needs to really go after that idiot Burrows too.


#2386544 The Race for Eight: Blue Jackets, Stars, Wings

I still feel like people don't realize that we actually played well last night. They only had 17 shots, remember. We put on 34. We Were buzzing. Not much you can do about a goalie standing on his head.


The Wings did play pretty well. The only issue is I have seen that high shot total before with nothing to show for goals. Namely the series against Nashville where they peppered Rinne.

The Red Wings still play on the perimeter too much and many of their shots are rather harmless. They can't or in some players cases (Franzen and Filppula stand out) won't go to the tough areas of the ice to score goals.

This team desperately needs some size and goal-scoring ability on the wing.

How many finishers do the Red Wings have?


None. Haven't had one since Hossa left.


#2385466 Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 April 2013 - 08:50 PM

How exactly are they going to do ice outdoors in Los Angeles?

 

Typical of the NHL to ruin a good thing. There's no appeal when you do it six times.

Strong night for both Nyquist and Andersson. They have sustained some pressure and are hard on the forecheck.

It's not exaggerating to say the Red Wings have three players. Everything is dependent on Jimmy, Z and Pavel.

How bad of a line is Franzen - Filppula - Cleary?

I have more confidence in the fourth line scoring a goal.

The skills competition deciding the extra point for the second straight night in a playoff race.

Gary's thrilled, while everyone else is disgusted. They gotta do away with this garbage.

Quincey out, Lashoff in on Sunday please.

We don't have time for Quincey to readjust to the game if he's going to play this poorly in the process.

Positive finish to the second. Getting the next goal early in the third would be huge, as they won't have their legs playing back-to-back.

Jimmy is going to be busy.

Franzen - Filppula - Cleary

Not willing, can't and won't score. Get Nyquist who actually generates chances on a skill line.

Franzen bringing the effort. Does he ever drive the net? Two lazy floaters on goal from the outside already. At least Abdelkader and Cleary try to play in the tough areas.

The disparity in skill and speed in just six minutes so far is unreal. Jimmy is the only one playing.
