#2601008 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

Bottom line:  the Blots have no answers for a Wings team that plays the entire 60 minutes.  I believe that lesson has been learned by our guys.   This was a HUGE win, no matter how you look at it.

I am so proud of this team and how they ignored the potential effect of the meltdown last game... and destroyed the Blots.  Awesome stuff. 

 

Happy birthday to me!  They did it and won for me, and I could not be happier right now.

 

Stars #1 Mraz (duh), Kronner #2, and E #3.  I can't really argue with that... although I thought Miller (and his line - Landon and Glenny) pretty much are the x-factor vs the Blots.

 

I will be happy to claim Monday as my "2nd birthday" if it helps.  ;)  LGRW!!!

This game will be the test - do the Wings belong in the hunt, or not?  Of course they do!  In my mind, this is a must-win... and it will be tough.  Hostile arena, Bolts have momentum - whether Babs believes in it or not - they do right now.

 

Today is my birthday.  It would make everything better if they would win for me.  No pressure, Wings, you will just break my heart if you don't. ;)

 

LGRW!!

Jimmy is very aware of the situation, and he knows this is how it goes, sometimes.  I have said before (and am sure I will again), Jimmy will be ready if he's needed.  It's Petr's job right now, undoubtedly.  It's why we watch hockey.  You never know what will happen.  I am grateful we have two goalies who are able to rise to the occasion when needed...

 

I am thrilled for Mraz and I have little doubt that Jimmy is just as proud as can be right now.  :thumbs-up:

that was more fun than I can remember in quite some time... aside from the penalty fest, great effort.  And Mrazek is the real deal.  I couldn't be more pleased.  I have another Czech goalie to love, as a bonus!  I love this kid.  He is cool as can be, and yet has that quirky fire that makes for a truly great goaltender... I think Petr's job description just jumped a couple of pay grades.

 

More of this Thursday, please, minus the PKs, which were great -  but make me nervous, indeed.

 

Bet Glenny is still grinning.  :cheesy:

I rather like the lines, and glad to see Smith back, as well.  Thanks for the GDT, Mikey, as always - great job!!

 

Wings have got this!  What, me worry??  LGRW!!!

Great job on the GDT  as always, Mikey.  Thank you!  Dearest Wings, I love you so much, please shoot the damned puck more than 14 times and stay outta the penalty box and other such shenanigans.  Matinee game + NBC is rarely a good thing for us.

 

A little advice:  Check.  Then check some more.  Here a check, there a Czech, everywhere... back, front and sideways - you get the idea.  TB will not play perimeter hockey, and Gigantor-goalie will not suck (as much) this game..

 

Mraz should not be setting records for the most goals faced in a playoff game, seriously, just because he can do it.  LGRW!!!

Mraz in post-game interview, seems much older than he is, and is just one calm, cool little Czech cucumber.  Impressive.

 

44 saves, he laughed and said it was "fun"  ;)

thanks for putting up the win tile #1 of #16, Matt

 

Three stars:

 

1. Mrazek (no brainer)

2. Dats

3. Boyle - should have been Glenny




#2592149 Buffalo clinches last spot

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 April 2015 - 09:36 PM

Buffalo Sabres have been my long-time underdog team, one that I wish could have some success for the sake of their fans, especially.  I have good friends who live there, great knowledgeable hockey fans - they deserve to have a team they can rally around and have some fun.

Posted by puckloo39 on 09 April 2015 - 09:49 PM

Three things: 

 

Jimmy is honest and admitted (post-game) that he cheated on the GWG and he owned it - made me think very highly of him, not that I thought he played badly.  He denied that it hit anyone, just said he should have had it. 

 

Smith should be packing up smelly hockey gear, loading the bus, and apologizing profusely to everyone else on the team for a long time to come. 

 

Pavel Datsyuk is the most amazing player in the NHL.  He is the man, playing in pain, and still better than the majority of other players on the ice.

 

On to Carolina and a solid win, dear Wings.  I pray one day you will make the playoffs without costing me more grey hairs and all of my remaining fingernails.  But, I will take it!




#2590695 Erik Cole out for season, playoffs due to spinal cord contusion

Posted by puckloo39 on 08 April 2015 - 12:11 PM

that is awful, poor guy.. really sorry to hear that and hope he's OK, long term. 

 

PS - wish for the 1000th time that Mule wasn't broken... we need him




#2587949 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by puckloo39 on 02 April 2015 - 02:22 PM

Cleary, Weiss and poor Pookie... that's just mean - two old goats and a kid line?    :lol:   Shame that Dats can't get it going here... he's the missing piece that is causing a lot of the discombooberative activity out there, I believe.

 

Miller is my freaking HERO!  What a man.  :wub:

 

We shall overcome, it's time the Wings got their s*** together and played like they need and want two points.  Boston will not feel sorry for us (Obvious Loo)

 

LGRW!!   Don't stop believing!

Warrior.  I hereby award Drew Miller the Niklas Lidstrom Iron Man trophy for sheer guts and amazing heart.  Betcha he's out there tomorrow night vs. Boston.
