#2512678 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

So has Holland by not improving this defense over the years.  We've got one defenseman hurt, so that results in a scrub like Lashoff having to be inserted into the lineup. What does that say about our depth?  


Slow down.  I'm not going to defend anything Holland has done.  But other than Datsyuk, Boston has dominated every single legit NHL player on this roster as well as the AHL-level defense.


This team has been barely squeaking into the playoffs the past few years for a reason.  they aren't that good.  Boston is on a completely new level compared to Anaheim last year.

I want Gazdic and McQuaid next year on this team

Another cowardly play by Lucic. He had absolutely no reason to do it. Dekeyser routinely ran him into the boards. He did it because he knew he could.

Guy acts like the toughest s*** but runs away from legit heavyweights. He's ducked Colton Orr multiple times, Georges Laraque multiple times, and just ran away from John Scott last week.

#2508349 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 April 2014 - 10:17 PM

Last time we played Pittsburgh in the playoffs, we had Lidstrom neutralizing Crosby. That's the one factor at play here that worries me about the Pens. I feel like they're a team that can be beat, but it's going to be very, very hard for this team. Nyquist, Franzen, Tatar and Legwand are going to have to really contribute to the scoring, because Datsyuk is going to likely get tasked with staying on Crosby at all times.

Don't worry, Lashoff will shut down Crosby and Malkin with one hand tied behind his back. He's that clutch.

Kindl played 12 minutes, and Lashoff played 11. And those 2 dickheads cost us a point in that little of ice time, for f*** sakes, they make Quincey look like Nick.

Considering the league didn't step in when we traded a fisrt rounder for Quincey, I'm going to go ahead and say no.

I hate Franzen. Doesn't shoot nor get a pass to Nyquist on a 2-on-1 and then lingers in the zone offside because he's tired from skating for the first time in three weeks.

If there's one thing I miss about ESPN covering hockey, it was the guys involved with calling the games. Thorne, Clement, Pang > anything NBCSN puts on television. It didn't make me want to switch channels during intermission.

Datsyuk wont be at 100% at anytime this season, who knows about Zetterberg. And before anyone says Datsyuk at 60% is better than not at all, as true as that is, that wont get us past Boston or Pittsburgh.

#2503456 Do you want monster to start tomorrow?

Posted by DickieDunn on 30 March 2014 - 08:33 AM

He'll give up 4 goals, Wings will win 5-4, people will say "Monster should be #1 he wins his games," then tomorrow Kahn will tweet that Gustavsson tweaked his groin and will be out 2 weeks.

So you expect Howard to just shut them out after half the game. Howard has already made a couple extremely timely saves in this game. How about a timely PP goal?

Yes, I do.  He has to steal us a game here somewhere.  Chris Osgood just said the same thing.

In the last 18 games, Howard has 10 sub-.900 save percentage performances. Of those 10, 9 resulted in a loss, including the last 3 games. His goals-against over the last 18 games is 3.333 per game.


Is his defense crap? Yes, but at what point do we stop making excuses for him and accept that if you are going to be a good goaltender, you have to make the difficult saves, especially at crucial points in the game. As I've said elsewhere, he allows his glove hand to dip, resulting in two goals tonight, his rebound control is as bad as its ever been (which is really saying something with Howard), and the way he has been the last few games reminds me of his early season stretch of awfulness. By the the second goal you could read in his body language that he was feeling sorry for himself. He looks lethargic at times and he is allowing back-breaking goals.


Is the problem honestly that this injury-depleted team can't score an average of 4+ goals per game to win? Bad as our defense has been, Howard has been just as bad, and getting worse.

I really hope Gustavsson can start soon. Jimmy Howard is just not good enough to win big games. This sieve is going to cause Detroit to be swept during this key stretch.
