In Topic: ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Yesterday, 05:24 PM

This is a really tough series for our young guys. They may have won the Calder Cup but the physicality the Bruins are bringing is on another level. Dekeyser, Smith, Nyquist, Tatar, Kindl, even Sheahan look a bit rattled. Jurco actually looks good though. 


1st goal was a bit of a backbreaker. In the middle of trying to hold off a great Bruins start you can't give them one for free. We were still in it though, even after 2-0. But when our PP got chance after chance with barely registering a shot on goal it killed our momentum and the Bruins took advantage. 


We're still in a good position. Need to find some ways to break through offensively because we can't trust our defense and Howard to play as perfectly as they did in Game 1. Time to go with what got us here: Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco.

It almost looks like Franzen is telling Datsyuk "...dude, you scored!". Dats was soooo chill after that goal. No big deal, been scoring those goals for a decade.. 


Babcock deserves a ton of credit, he got the guys ready and playing exactly the kind of game they need to play against the Bruins. Now we have at the very least a split in Boston which is a great result to take back to Detroit.

Zetterberg was huge in every game he played, and I wonder if Nyquist would have had the same impact this year without him. He probably made the Olympic team because of Zetterberg and that seemed to give him a huge boost. So my vote would have gone to Z if he had just played a few more games. 


As it stands, this was the year of Nyquist. You could he was going to do something special this season when he scored in his first shift after being called up. That was a turning point of the season, because it was the moment the old guys started losing their jobs. And then he just carried us post-Olympics in a way that is still hard to believe.

Potential D Pairings in GR:


Ouellet - Sproul

Backman - Marchenko

Almquist - Jensen


DAMNNNNNNN so nice. Got that L-R shots all balanced nicely. So much talent. 



Not sure how our prospect pool got so stacked. Well done scouts. We can afford several of those guys being busts and still be solid, especially if Smith keeps improving like he has been.

Both of them look great. Oullet the more steady, reliable of the two but Sproul looks like a potential elite d-man in a few years. Size, skating, skill, shot, physical play.. yep.
