"Howard's nine shootout goals against lead the entire NHL"

His shooters are 3 for 16. I can't imagine there any teams worse in that regard either.

Weiss line has been our best

We seem to keep playing snake bitten teams because we give up a lot of great scoring opportunities

#2549185 Malkin hit on Girardi

You know if it happened after only big hits I wouldn't have that much of a problem with it but as it stands now it happens after every kind of hit.


Agreed.  There was a time when players accepted that hockey is a tough sport and they might have a teammate get caught with a clean hard hit.  They'd just take a number and get that guy back.  Or the hitting in the game overall would increase. 


There were always the few star players who were protected, like Gretzky and Yzerman, but there wasn't all this fighting after clean hard hits.  The point is to separate the guy from the puck and take advantage of that.  By dropping the gloves immediately the team often negates that advantage.  The player starting a fight after a hit like that should always get an extra 2 and maybe even a 10 minute misconduct.  Especially considering it's often more of a mugging than a fight.


For as much as people complain about the league taking hitting out of the game, players fighting after clean hits tries to do the same thing. Hitting is part of the game.  Take a number and play on. 


To be clear, I'm not talking about the Wing's habit of standing around when one of their players has obviously been cheapshotted.

I love when we beat the Devils, walking the dog with a Wings sweater or hat is so awesome.

How did Weiss look?

He apparently played 8 minutes, but I don't recall seeing him.
