#2504542 4/2 GDT - Bruins 2 at Red Wings 3

Datsyuk and Alfie out? Awesome.

Saying "Datsyuk out" makes it sound like he hasn't been out for a long time and is ALMOST BACK. 


I have a good feeling about this game. Or maybe it's just the feeling of finally playing a game that doesn't feel like a complete must-win. We're in a solid position, even with a loss tonight. And a win would to me feel like almost locking up a playoff spot.

Those percentages change so fast. This team can easily lose the next two games. Tampa and Boston. I don't care about what are odds are, until we're actually IN every game will have me a nervous wreck.

Hopefully this game serves as a wake-up call. If so, I'm ok with it.


I'd actually consider scratching Franzen and giving Jurco his spot.



This board man.... wow. Franzen had an okay game. Not great, but probably the best player on that line. Alfredsson was awful, Legwand invisible. But even so, none of them come close to the horrific play of Bertuzzi. I assume Callahan is out if Jurco is in, but I'd rather see Bert gone. He is so obviously done as a hockey player, there's nothing left in his tank.

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.

Pathetic beyond words. Dallas Eakins is the biggest joke in the league.

Wow, wonder how that feels. We can't even win 3 straight.

They're, as usual, the team to beat in the East.

This game might have been the most impressive Gus has played. He was actually a dominant player out there, and we were playing one of the top teams in the league. 


Setting up the OT goal by knocking Malkin down and creating a turnover is just epic.

Ya win some ya lose some. A couple of wins and we're back in the wild card. Playoff race is far from over.

Agreed. But this team hasn't won 3 in a row for about 3 months. "A couple of wins" is HARD for this team, and it's looking unlikely to get easier. 

Columbus is a red-hot team and will probably keep climbing. So hopefully we can beat other teams and get into the playoffs somehow. Just seems like this is the year where we've had one bad break too many though. 


Early season mis-management ruined what could have been a solid start and since then injuries have piled up. With Nyquist since Day 1, could we have had 2 points more? 4? 6 or even 10? All those OT and SO losses, maybe some of them would have been wins? We wasted time and it's catching up now.

Usually I wouldn't write this team off for making the playoffs, but without Z for 7-8 weeks, I'm not liking our complete lack of leadership.  Alfredsson's been a sleeper since the Olympics ended, Ericsson's been terrible, Kronner's been on-off-on-off...  Howard has been bad this year.  Dats is gone for 2 more weeks.  


Basically without Z, our team is like an Army without their General.

There's a pretty good chance Dats is gone for way more than that. They're waiting 3 weeks to see if there's any chance he doesn't need surgery. Because if he does, that's his season. 


We're facing healthy teams playing at 110% trying to make the playoffs. We're broken down, playing with plugs, losing new guys every game, shuffling lines, playing kids... and like you say, we are without our two leaders. The two guys that can carry this team through most things. 


A miracle is what can save the playoffs streak now, nothing else.

I'm just done with this season. The hockey gods are taking a dump on Detroit this season.

This is honestly how I feel too. Enough is enough. 20 years of success have been channeled into giving the Wings 1 year of nothing going right. It's gone way beyond "fire the trainers" or "we're old and fragile". Everyone gets injured, all the time, in every possible way. 


If we make the playoffs it will be the biggest miracle in the modern hockey era.

We ALWAYS lose the battles in front of our own net. Pretty much the most important area to win battles, and if there's a lose puck there it's always the opponent that gets a stick on it, creating dangerous shots or passes. This is something that I've noticed the last weeks/months and it has to change.

A win: "This team could be a contender when we're healthy!"

A loss: "We suck, we have no good players and everything is awful"

Gustavsson is out with a sore groin? Are you serious? Is our training staff for real? Are our players for real?

Eh, Gustavsson's been having recurring groin-problems as long as he's been in the NHL. He can't stay healthy enough to ever be a #1. Howard would get the start tomorrow anyway so it's not a big deal, hopefully this time Gus won't be out long.

Wish nothing but the best for him. Wouldn't mind having him around but I'd rather see him get a chance to be a regular somewhere else than be scratched with us.
