#2501558 3/25 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 4

After all these injuries and with only 10 games left the positive is that the Wings are in a playoff spot, that is incredible in itself.

 

It really is pretty incredible. I mean, we're all bent out of shape about our team not getting it done (and justifiably so, I guess), but, like, look at it from the perspective of a Wild fan. We should've been an easy four points for them. No team has any business being as competitive as we've been with the injuries we're dealing with. (Yeah, I know, the Penguins. But everyone knows that's a lame comparison.) And now we may be getting a bit healthier.

 

So, yes, losing this game sucks. But that we're even upset about this loss is a remarkable thing. Our season should be over. We should be in free fall mode like the Sens. None of this should matter. And yet, here we are, holding down a playoff spot.

Amazing that Zetterberg is still our points leader, he could have had career highs if he stayed healthy. Bottom 6 is pure defence which is fine with me they've been doing a good job. If our two top lines both show up we win big

happy with a point and lets face it when we went 2-3 down who honestly thought we'd get back in it?

 

Next season upgrade on the bottom pairing D, either we keep Q and make him a 5/6 guy with E and

sign a top 2 guy to partner Nik, with DeK and Smiffy as the 3/4 pairing. Marchenko as the #7.

 

Up front when all are fit to play just a top 6 power forward and we should have a good year as long 

as we dont repeat the injury records we set this year.

 

The next 4 games are going to make or break our p/o push. 

 

I say call up Ouellet or Marchenko now, send Kindl to GR or trade him for a case of stick tape.

I was very happy to get a point out of this one. It was fairly obvious the team didn't have it today, we looked slow and tired and Minnesota looked hungry. 

 

Huge games coming up. We're in a decent position, but a lot will be determined in the next 4-5 games.

Tough break, at least it's one point.

3 points in a home and home ain't half bad.  Would have preferred 2 points, but at least they're hanging on in games with this depleted lineup.

Methinks Legwand just won some hearts with that plastering along the boards.

Find ways to win, every point is huge right now and that is the kind of game that could fire up a win streak.

 

Nyquist quickly becoming a leader with Datsyuk and Zetterberg out.

 

100% agree. Very easy to see that the captain has rubbed off on him in a huge way. He is like a mini Z out there. I think one part of his game that goes unnoticed is how rarely he takes penalties. Kid only has 8 penalty minutes in 43 games. 

What is it now like 25 points in 20 games? The kid is doing everything he can to carry this team down the stretch.

We've got to make playoffs. We may finally get to see a fairly healthy roster if we do. God that'd be exciting.

Beat Pittsburgh and Toronto and we'll be competitive again.
