#2344100 1/21: Red Wings 4 at Blue Jackets 3 (SO)

I hate shootouts but I'm glad we got the extra point. Very needed. Should have managed to win the game in regulation however, we had enough chances. BJ's aren't a bad, they've been underestimated, but they are a team we need to be better than if we're gonna make the playoffs. 

 

Overall a MUCH better game than against the Blues, still too many defensive breakdowns, and too many penalties and bad PK. 

 

But there was a lot of progress made. Bottom 6 looked great imo. Cleary is the only questionmark there. Filppula was good, but needs more help. Franzen was okay but Samuelsson was the worst player on the ice. 

 

Top line showed moments of brilliance. Brunner had great hustle all game, got himself in a bunch of scoring opportunities and showed his amazing talent in the shootout. I think he'll very soon start putting the puck into the net during regulation as well. 

Both Datsyuk and Z have a lot more in them though. Z tried to do too much a lot of the time, maybe something he needs to shake after playing against lesser opposition all season. Great work on the Datsyuk goal though. 

 

On D, it was a mixed bag. Lashoff will be difficult to remove from the lineup. The fact he got so much time on the PK and in key moments of the game obviously shows Babcock immediately recognized the kid was playing more solid than most of our other guys. Quincey needs to go back to basics, Smith has some serious defensive issues to work on, and Kronwall has to simplify his game. White and Colo both were passable imo. 

 

Howard was solid enough, he seems to be finding his game.

Here's something to distract us all from this game - Rick DiPietro's picture for this year.

Can we for the record squash the Parise and Suter whining..it had nothing to do with the money..they wanted to be Kariya and Selanne part 2  ..Holland offered them as much money as anyone else.

 

Here is some advice everyone...mix up your favorite beverage whether its whiskey, beer, wine, listerine, dr pepper, sit down..chill the f out and have a short memory.  See you headcases on Monday.

When the Wings get outplayed this badly and lose this badly and you're still looking for positives, or "bright spots", you're really a Toronto fan in denial.

Super strong start Detroit. Glad I bought NHL Game Center (which I can't even use since it's down).

 

I haven't ordered mine yet....lol  Starting to wonder if I should now!!!  LMAO

My wife left the room about 10 min ago because I "looked very angry". I'm sure Holland has that same look....but he has a lot more $ in his checking account, because he chose to spend none of it.
