Not to mention the pens played the night before. This is the problem the wings are having this year is carrying over their play into the next game.
Unfortunately, we've seen last night's game before. The Wings being uninterested in the first 40 minutes is nothing new for this season. However, only playing hockey in the 3rd period just isn't going to cut it come playoff time, where teams desperate to win a cup will be pulling out all the stops.
The Wings are professionals, and I think they'll do well in the playoffs if their enthusiasm level matches their talent level.
