Tuzzi and Z were so happy for Tatar.  It was very nice to see.  The hug on the bench from the Captain really hit home.


Definitely a tremendous effort by the Wings all round in this one and to steal 2 point on the road is huge. Howie was incredible, Tatar and Sheahan were top notch also. Really hope that Sheahan stays for a little while longer. 

 

I do think it needs pointing out though how, without Howard's stellar play, the Wings would have been beaten, simply because there were far far too many defensive zone errors - missed opportunities to clear the zone, giveaways in or around the slot etc etc. They really have to sort these out otherwise wins like this will be hard to come by. And it's not just the guys who we love to bash around here making these mistakes - Quincey, Kindl, Samuelsson etc. DeKeyser had one in the 3rd that nearly led to the Kings go ahead goal. Never have I seen stretch where the Wings have looked so sloppy defensively

 

That said, tremendous effort, and I loved how the Wings didn't back down physically.

The Wings finally did something to help Jimmy out though....instead of screening him and not blocking shots they sold out hard tonight as a team and blocked shots and played physical.  A lot of the shots that got through to Jimmy were tricklers and then he made all the other saves and some of them quite big.  He definitely had to save us on a few boneheaded turnovers.


Sheahan and Tatar show some chemistry, why not keep Sheahan and demote Andersson to fourth line? Send Glendening down.

Glendening has been our best PK guy and he's twice as fast as Andersson and forechecks harder and better than probably anyone not named Helm.  That's an element the Wings also need to keep along with Sheahan.

i think a lot of ppl  looked at nyquist and thought intant classic and possibly the next datsyuk im not going to say he wont be but right now head and shoulders tatar is amazing i have always wanted him up and when he had to deal with the whole crap earlier this season  with being scratched it disqusted  me now that  he has proven over and over again his deication maybe babs will realize he deserves quality ice time

Nyquist has really good chemistry with Z, he just needs to bury a couple to get back on the horse.  Give Dats Tatar on his wing and I'm sure we'll see the chemistry they had the couple times they played together and then move Franzen and Alfredsson around on the other wings on those lines and you have a pretty dirty top 6 once the team is healthy.  I don't care who is better...we have both.  It's like comparing Dats and Z.

i agree kip always liked tatar more all around better at everything and he  just gets better

He's used to the NHL size and speed now and you can tell he's comfortable out there.  He's got swagger.  He's hanging on to the puck and making things happen.  He's not afraid to drive the net with the puck and it's getting us goals lately.  The past 3 games he's been ridiculous.

I am so far beyond impressed with Tatar.  His dad passes away, he plays.  And he doesn't just play, he was absolutely awesome.  He really showed a lot of heart out there for his dad.  I'm glad that we have an undersized forward on the the Wings that plays with as much heart and compete level as Z and Dats.  :clap: To me, Tatar is a true Red Wing and showed why tonight.

Smith wants to punch someone!  Let him go zebra!


I'm actually liking this game with all this snarl.  I'm seeing some kind of throw down soon with either Abby or Smith.

Smith is gonna throat punch Fraser.  I can feel it coming soon.

I'd be accidently shooting a puck at the ref tonight...hint, hint!

I've done it, it feels good.  They get the message...




#2472107 Post your hockey collection

Hopefully the pictures work below.  I finally got around to unpacking my hockey stuff and set it up in my spare room as best as I could.  Hope you all enjoy.  I would love to see other LGW'ers hockey collections as well.  Mine is mostly Wings, so I figured you'd all like it.

I had to work.  How did Marchenko look?

Like Danny DeKeyser in his first game as a Wing.

Marchenko and Smith finish the game as the D pair on the ice.  I like.

bout time a game went our way. Z a beast

Z is a huge beast!  Tatar stepped up, Nyquist stepped up, Marchenko was solid and didn't look out of place, Jimmy's playing like last year Jimmy, Cleary got his 7th point and Miller and Andersson got goals in the same game.


Ok, thanks. Though, I don't need an app to avoid basketball. ;)

You do if you ever watch highlights on TSN.  Raptors.....barf.

 

What a game by the band-aid roster tonight.

Zetterberg with a laser. I'm going to be greedy and ask for curly fries.

Wow that was a nice one-timer.  Beauty pass from Cleary.  Yup, I just complemented Cleary.

I would love to see Smith go up on a rush and score a goal the same way Tatar did.  Or just a big dirty clapper top corner.

They just did a Marchenko montage showing his stretch passes this game and standing guys at the line with the poke check and it looked like DeKeysers 1st game with the Wings.  And Blashill is very high on this kid.  Liking what I'm seeing from the kid.  I noticed he was very steady in the GR Winter Classic game as well.

he's probably pissed due to his last name being Garbutt

Sounds like some sort of angry or perhaps agressive butt.  Or the worst pirate name ever.  Grrrrrrbutt!
