How many helmets did you guys see on the ice last night? Yeah more then I have ever seen hit the ice in a game.
I also noticed that, T. I am so sick of seeing our guys get mauled... with no consequences at all, either from officials or our players standing up for each other. I miss Mac - he would have at least glowered at the other team and made them think he was going to get them next shift...
Well, when you only score one or two goals a game this is what you get. I think they've looked decent so far this year, but they have GOT to start scoring more. Then we won't have to worry about bulls*** waving off of goals or uncalled penalties or what the f*** ever.
I have been saying for several years, the Wings must score 30% more goals than any other team in order to win a game, since so many of their perfectly good goals are disallowed... and the refs make sure the ice tilts in the direction of whatever team the Wings are playing.
Must find offense, somehow. Jimmy was spectacular tonight... D was adequate. Wings must become over-achievers and soon, if they expect to succeed.
