I meant don't race them to 5 goals....has to be a low scoring game. Hope you understand now

Abs in is a big boost for sure, if not on the scoreboard well then at least in the hitting department. Weiss sits is, well expected... What Detroit needs to do is win those 2-1 games not allowing any mental mistakes, and Andy is more defensively responsible then Weiss. We aren't going to outscore the opponent that lead the league in goals, so try winning a different way. From what Weiss is shown (granted he is playing with Andy) he wont produce much if anything, and at this point its a coin toss who would score first be it him or Andy (again if either).

Weiss with a new coach could actually be a good thing, a fresh start for Weiss that is. Babs with this whole not signing until the seasons over really makes me wonder, is he that set on staying in D-town? So much has been made of this delay for a decision, whether he goes elsewhere only puts pressure on him, and somewhat on this team (even though Babs says otherwise). If he really wanted to stay in Detroit why go through this roller coaster where the damn Maple Leafs are asking "what if". I don't know but I got a feeling Babs might be on his way out... 

 

What other way is there to win besides outscoring the opponent?

From St.James :

 

http://www.freep.com...speed/26081585/

 

 

Zetterberg estimated Smith "has learned stuff. He is more experienced and I think he played well for us this year.

"Tampa is a high-speed skating team, and when Smith plays, he can really skate with the puck, and he can keep up with their forwards. I think he's a good fit for the series."

 

 

"Stay positive, that' the biggest thing," Smith said, "I was working hard and bag-skating myself, getting Tony to help me out with things that we're working on."

 

As for what he thought of Babcock's message, Smith simply said he wanted "to be ready when my number is called."

 

 

Abdelkader, who missed the first two games for health reasons, said Smith's stay in the doghouse, "was getting at him, but he stayed positive and he worked hard. He's going to provide some physicality for us - he's a big defenseman that takes a body, makes it hard for opponents to get to the front of the net. I think he'll be a big boost. He's raring to go."

 

It's from St.James, but doesn't sound like Smith has attitude problems. That's good, I hope he has a huge game tomorrow.

Earlier in the season I'd have been pissed to see Andersson in over Weiss. But now I just get it. Andy is more responsible with the puck. He might not put up many points, but he isn't giving up glorious scoring chances either.

 

Weiss is the most frusterating player for me to watch because he clearly has the skill and the instincts around the crease to be an effective player, but he's just awful at every other aspect of the game.  I honestly don't get it.  But anyway, I'm with you.  Andersson, who does nothing great, but plays responsible hockey is probably a better option than Weiss at this point.

52-28

I thought he was solid in Game 1.  Not so much in Game 2.  I'm hoping having Abby back and possibly switching up the lines will generate more offense so Ericsson isn't defending in his own zone almost the entire game.

 

I think so. These lines give us much more balance and depth, both scoring wise and defensively. Removing Weiss and going with Sheahan and Jurco together with Andersson at least makes the 3rd line not a liability, and I've liked Jurco's game so far this post season. Just needs to crash and bang and create a few chances. 

 

Lines: Abdelkader-Zetterberg-Nyquist Helm-Datsyuk-Tatar Andersson-Sheahan-Jurco Miller-Glendening-Ferraro Weiss, Pulkkinen roating in.

Simply can't call that first time in a game like this during OT. If you want to call it earlier.


Wow, what a save by Andersson.

I hope the Wings are taking notes on how to slow down a really fast team. Hit anything that moves

Hearing a major league sports player uses cocaine surprises me as much as Barry Bonds using steroids.
