Wow, one bad game and the bandwagon Wings fans are jumping off. Please delete your account off the site and go join the ranks of the Canucks. Some members on this site are an absolute embarrassment to real Wings fans who back their team.
This was a defensive performance 3 years in the making. 2009 we got bailed out by our powerhouse offence night after night. 2010 we blamed it on injuries. This season has got progressively worse defence wise. The continuous mistakes, the lack of hustle, intesity and willingness to sacrifice from everyone, forwards to defence, Lidstrom to Ericsson, coupled with goaltending that oscilates between average and mediocre have all built up to this. This is not an overnight phenomena, and I don't see it being fixed overnight on the day the playoff start.
