I really hope Weiss scores tonight or at least picks up a few points. I think Babs should put him on the second PP unit (correct me if I'm wrong, but I am pretty sure he hasn't had any PP time). I will be utterly disappointed if we don't see Kronwall own someone or Alfie get a hat trick against his old team. Pretty confident about this one since the Wings outscored their last two opponents 11-1. LGRW!!!!!
Great period by Monster... the only reason that this game is still tied.
- Cleary is awful. There is just no place for him on this team. He just gives the puck away and he can't even stay on his own feet anymore.
- Kindl with one awful turnover and about 10 shots of his have been blocked. He really needs to learn how to shoot the puck with his head up, and this is why he should NOT be on the 2nd pp unit over Brendan Smith
- Helm has had a couple turnovers, but ultimately another great effort and a nice goal.
- Alfie doesnt seem to have missed a beat thus far, though I wish he would have shot the puck on the 3 on 1.
Also, that is a joke that there was no interference call on the hit on Tatar.
The Red Wings NEED to win this game. Anything less than 2 points is a joke.
I have been saying this for a long time. Brendan Smith should be the guy manning the point on the 2nd PP unit... not Kindl. Kindl is like a little kid when he gets the puck... he never knows what to do and then just ends up making a stupid play. Smith has the offensive instinct and the ability to get points. Babcock is making a huge mistake not playing Smith on the PP
