#2595139 Post-GDT ECQF Game 1: Red Wings 3, Lightning 2 (DET leads, 1-0)

A lot of nyquist and Tatars struggles I think came from being matched up against the stamkos line for much of the night. I'm sure that's a matchup cooper with stick with in tampa's home games. I would imagine Babcock will try to avoid that matchup and maybe try to match Datsyuk's line against them.
As far as the defense goes, someone said we played really bad defensively but I actually thought the opposite. We lost the puck possession game really badly and gave up a lot of shots but I thought everyone was in the right spots, clogging the middle and forcing outside shots that Mrazek didn't have any problems with.
The best news of all is that we have so much to improve but we still got the win. I don't think we'll see a game as lopsided as this one again



If you ever listen to Bill Cosby, he has a saying. Dont ever challenge worse. Things can always get worse

Hate to be that proverbial bucket of cold water, but they cannot play like that again. Team looked so old and slow it was insane how Mrazek played but cmon.

Watching the clock at work... Nothing like the zing of playoff hockey in your veins to make that second hand look slower.
 
Get that W tonight boys! LGRW!


24 straight years. Its still light outside starting to get hot in the house, and theirs just a feeling of anticipation in the air. Easily my favorite time of the year.

That bafoon will probably get a hatrick

Pronger 2.0?  How many times was Pronger suspended again? 
 
Of course I'd be mad, but it was hardly the most vicious slash I've ever seen.  5 and a game was plenty, especially in the playoffs.  And I'm sure it hurt Stone but he needs to toughen up.  You'd think his hand was cut off with the way he flailed around.
 
I'm not even really a Subban fan.  I used to dislike him, then saw CH24 and grew to like him more (or dislike him less) hearing him outside of the game.  He's still immature but also gets more crap than he deserves.  
 
What if someone ended a Red Wings career the way Abdelkader basically ended Lydman's with his charge a couple years ago?
 
What if someone suckerpunched Datsyuk the way Franzen has suckerpunched several players?

Its brutal. Not to sound like Don Cherry, but I miss the hockey that I grew up with. Subban would be made to answer for his cheapshots in the form of a fight. Nowadays these guys can het away with anything and that's why you see these insane slashes and hits from behind. There is no physical punishment to deter this garbage. It makes me sick.

Some interesting claims by Murray but the Sens have zero credibility on this right now after their coach's comments.  They're lobbying (and threatening) the league hard after the incident.
 
 
Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun  9m9 minutes ago

Murray says disturbing part for him is that he says Subban made a threat to Stone previous to the incident

 

Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun  7m7 minutes ago

Murray says Stone is ''very questionable for the series.''

 

 

If the "threat" is true at all I'm guessing it was Subban saying he'd be coming after him or a fairly typical playoff chirp.  I doubt he said "I'm gonna break your hand with a slash."


Wouldn't suprise me to see Suban get cheap shotted. Would love to see it too. Reacted like a little punk

Good call throwing out PK. That was a totally unprovoked and unnecessary assault. These TSN announcers are major homers. Disgusting.


His reaction was hilarious. He didn't even think that was a penalty

I have zero problem with calling that a major, and if its broken then he should be suspended


#2593315 Money On The Board!

Posted by matt198913 on 14 April 2015 - 11:06 PM

$5 for any Smith point
$10 per series win
$25 for a cup win
$1 for any OT goal by a Wing


#2593314 Why so negative?

Just listening to the NHL network fawn all over Tampa who hasn't won a damn thing in 10 years, talking about their experience and their speed. Just amazing to me. When the Wings are down they are too old, when it's playoff time the Wings are young inexperienced, and too easy to play against. I understand they haven't set the world on fire lately, but this team is a 100 point team. Please believe that the Red Wings aren't a good hockey club. They will run right through you.
