#2088360 12/31 GDT: Islanders 4 at Red Wings 3 OT)

Posted by puckloo39 on 31 December 2010 - 11:48 PM

Looking back on the Wings' last 10 games, there's one glaring thing about them: 8 of them had the Wings giving 3 or more goals.

Games where the Wings give up 3 goals:
12/27 against COL (W)
12/29 against DAL (W)

Games where the Wings give up 4 goals:
12/17 against CHI (L)
12/19 against DAL (L)
12/22 against VAN (W)
12/23 against STL (L)
12/31 against NYI (L)

Game where the Wings give up 5 goals:
12/13 against LAK (L)

Here's the goalies where they give up 3 or more goals:
Howard
12/13 against LAK: 5-0 loss
12/17 against CHI: 1-4 loss
12/22 against VAN: 4-5 win (OT)
12/29 against DAL: 7-3 win
12/31 against NYI: 4-3 loss (OT)

Osgood
12/19 against DAL: 4-3 loss (OT)
12/23 against STL: 4-3 loss
12/27 against COL: 4-3 win (OT)

Last 5 games for both goalies:
Howard:
12/17 against CHI: 1-4 L
12/22 against VAN: 4-5 (OT) W
12/26 against MIN: 4-1 W
12/29 against DAL: 7-3 W
12/31 against NYI: 4-3 (OT) L

Osgood:
12/04 against LAK: 2-3 (OT) L
12/11 against NJD: 4-1 W
12/19 against DAL: 4-3 (OT) L
12/23 against STL: 3-4 L
12/27 against COL: 4-3 W

Same number of games where 3 or more goals are scored against the goalies. Guys, don't you think that, maybe, just maybe, the defense isn't doing it's job? It's one thing to say Howie or Ozzie sucks when it's just that one goalie, but that isn't the case.

Again, it looks like the offense is going to have to score 4 or more goals to win games now <_< .


Unless the D steps up, that's probably true. Missing Lilja more than one would have thought, perhaps.

This is not rational, it's factual information. Therefore, it won't make any difference to those who are biased one way or the other re: goalies. ;)

Nice tribute to Ozzie!! It's so good that he's around to see how much people appreciate him. :thumbup:

Ott needs his ass whooped


Doesn't he, though? No one on this team to do that, however. :nonono:

Oh, look what happens when you shoot the freakin' puck at Dallas' goalie. Gah. :rolleyes:

no worries, if the Wings shoot the puck, I will let you know.

Wings look good... they are matching Dallas' energy so far in the first. :thumbup:

Ott is an ass, in case anyone has forgotten that fact.


#2086276 Congratulations Chris Osgood!

Posted by puckloo39 on 28 December 2010 - 04:36 PM

I now completely believe there are people that will never give Chris Osgood an ounce of credit no matter what. He makes 46 frickin saves and people are still bitching that he let in three goals.


So, what else is new, right? I swear, I've seen goalies win games and make spectacular saves and even get a shutout, yet someone will pipe up with "well, the saves weren't really that challenging," or "he only made 18 saves -- that was an easy win." It is never taken into account that half or more of those saves could have been a goal, with anyone else in net. Or that no NHL shutout is actually 'easy'.

I missed the game (damned non-hockey watching houseguests), but assume that the three let in were more than compensated by the other 46 pucks he did stop. I am proud that the Wings did their jobs and got one more goal that the other guys. In the long run, that's all that matters.

Down the road a bit, all people will remember is being there or seeing Ozzie hit the 400 milestone. Or, at least, that is what should be remembered.

If men could menstruate, they would have found a cure for it by now.


#2081796 How certain are you that the Wings will get Ozzy his 400th?

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 December 2010 - 09:18 PM

Get em next time, Ozzy. If you keep playing like you did tonight it won't take long at all for 400 to happen.



:thumbup: Ozzie wasn't the reason for the loss tonight. Not at all.

I can't believe anyone is coming into this thread to brag about being 'right' about Ozzie not getting to 400 in this game.

School's out for Christmas vacation?


#2081012 Little things that bother you..

Posted by puckloo39 on 18 December 2010 - 06:43 PM

Ok cool, but I want a traditional American wedding. Lots of booze and Elvis. Is that ok with you?

We should probably meet once or twice before the wedding, but it's not mandatory. We can answer those pointless questions like "what's your name?" after the honeymoon. ;)


Frivolous details, I agree. And what is a wedding without a drunken Elvis? Now, you can still back out. My dream honeymoon is six Red Wings games - one in each original six arena. I want all 30, but time might not permit.

Back on topic!

People who are so focused on finding and purchasing that last useless, stupid gift for someone who won't even appreciate it, that they nearly run over the old lady in her motorized wheelchair shopping cart in the crosswalk! -- well, they need a good beating. <_<

Will you marry me?



Sure! :P


I am out of coffee here at the house. :( Must get dressed and to get a cup at Java House. Yes.


#2080853 Chicago fans last night

Posted by puckloo39 on 18 December 2010 - 10:14 AM

Their "goal song" alone puts them in a category of idiocy that ranks highest in the NHL, to me. I picture them skipping around the arena like a bunch of goofy kids. Der-de-der-der-de-der.... :crazy: The song is about some skank who likes shoes, for heaven's sake.

Anyway, simple solution to that issue. Wings could f'ing show up and not let them ever play that moronic anthem again. I can turn the sound off - and I do!

As for the way the treated Chelios, it was the act of a fan base who haven't watched hockey for many years, and don't know how to behave. It was classless and stupid to boo a guy who still bleeds for that city, even if he did have more great years in Detroit than in his native Chicago. Glad I don't live there. Hope they lose miserably in the playoffs.
