#2559184 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Senators 2 (OT)

Posted by Dabura on 27 December 2014 - 03:58 PM

From a Sens blog:

 

[T]he Red Wings are probably underachieving in the standings. They sit second overall in 5 on 5 Corsi and sixth in Fenwick. The power play has had success with 24.1%, good enough for fourth overall. The penalty kill is stronger, running at second overall and 87.9%. This should be a team in the hunt for the league lead, not sitting third in the division.

 

From NHL.com:

 

The Red Wings recently did not win for six consecutive games. During that span, they allowed nine goals and and still procured four points. If that's the worst "slump" of the season, Detroit is going to earn an invitation to the tournament at the end of the season with ease.

 

The slump sucked, but this is still a very good team. And guess what: aside from Gustavsson, everyone's healthy.

 

I'm pumped.

#2558671 12/23 GDT : Sabres 3 at Red Wings 6

Sabres, Red Wings dealing with injury concerns

SABRES (13-18-3) at RED WINGS (17-8-9)

TV: MSG-B, BELL TV, FS-D

Season series: Zemgus Girgensons scored in the third round of a shootout and Michal Neuvirth stopped Henrik Zetterberg to seal a 3-2 win for the Buffalo Sabres against the Red Wings on Nov. 2 in Buffalo. The Red Wings had won seven straight against the Sabres; Buffalo's previous victory against Detroit was a 6-2 win Oct. 13, 2009.

 

Sabres team scope: The Sabres canceled practice in Detroit on Monday, mostly because coach Ted Nolan wants to make sure a flu bug that already has affected forwards Patrick Kaleta and Matt Moulson doesn't spread any further. Their status for Tuesday is unknown, as is the status of captain Brian Gionta. Gionta sustained a hard hit from the Boston Bruins' Matt Bartkowski at 14:08 of the first period and did not return to the game because of an upper-body injury. In addition, Marcus Foligno sustained an upper-body injury fighting Bartkowski after the hit on Gionta and did not return to the game. If the Sabres decide to recall a forward from Rochester of the American Hockey League, it might not be in time for the morning skate Tuesday.

 

Red Wings team scope: Goaltender Jimmy Howard practiced Monday, but his status for Tuesday remains unknown. Howard injured his groin in the first period of a 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders on Friday and left about halfway through practice Monday, according to MLive.com. "I was surprised [Howard] was out there on his own, then I was surprised he was in the net," coach Mike Babcock said Monday, according to MLive.com. "I gave him the boot out of the one net to say are you starting tomorrow. I don't know if he is. We'll know tomorrow morning." Petr Mrazek will start if Howard can't, but Howard told MLive he's feeling positive he'll be able to go. "There's a chance, but I don't know. I'll probably have to talk a little bit more to [the training staff] to see what's best for myself and for the team. It's responded every single day with treatments. It felt good out there on the ice today, so hopefully tomorrow, another good work day, and you never know."

Anybody think our lack of right handed shooters are CONTRIBUTING to our losses in shootoutsSent from my iPhone using Tapatalk


I think it has more to do with not having an enforcer. Opposing teams might think twice about dangling on Howard if Punchy McGrattan was staring them down.

I can't believe we pissed away the easy part of the schedule. Securing a top playoff spot is not looking great now going forward

 

Think of it as a moral victory.  Despite the fact that we didn't win most of the games, the opposing teams hardly scored any goals at all.

I've held off on promoting this in the past, but I think it's now viable to discuss replacing Franzen.  Why is viable now...because he is not in our top 3 offensive group anymore.  Yes, he has 19 points thus far and an assist machine.  However, at a cap hit of $4M...I think his offensive numbers actually make him trade-able at this cap hit. 

1.  I'd replace him with someone younger who can produce for us for the next five years.

2.  He's 34, and a big boy, father time and father injury are not in his favor.

3.  The assists are great, but we need goal scorers.
