#2500359 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by darkmanx on 24 March 2014 - 11:06 AM

Second time this year Nyquist is the star of the week.

 

 

Nyquist, Lundqvist, Iginla named 'Stars' of week

FIRST STAR – GUSTAV NYQUIST, RW, DETROIT RED WINGS

Nyquist led all players with six goals and tied for the League lead with seven points to help the Red Wings (33-24-14, 80 points) earn seven of a possible eight points and move into the first Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. He opened the week with two goals in a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs March 18. Nyquist followed that up with 1-1—2, including the primary assist on Daniel Alfredsson's last-second overtime winner, in a 5-4 triumph over the Pittsburgh Penguins March 20. He then scored his fifth game-winning goal of the season in a 3 2 victory over the Minnesota Wild March 22 and capped the week with 2-0—2, his fourth multi-goal game of the season, in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild March 23. The 24-year-old native of Halmstad, Sweden, has 23-17—40 in 46 games this season, including 7-1—8 during a five-game goal/point streak and a League-leading 18 goals in 23 games since Jan. 20.

I love how Gus looked back and saw how much space he had and knew that he could do anything he wanted.

 

Reminded me of Pasha doing that.

#2499483 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by darkmanx on 23 March 2014 - 08:17 AM

I don't get why so many people were going for the Habs last night?.. So short sighted in my opinion, I'd prefer to look at the bigger picture.

With the Habs winning in regulation it put them six points ahead of us and the Leafs just one point ahead of us with two games in hand on both. So, yes it made it much easier to pass one team but we could potential pass both teams and lock up a top three spot in the division.

If the Leafs had won in regulation it would have put them three points ahead of us and the Habs four points ahead of us with two games in hand on both. Both teams would be within reach, we would just have to continue playing well, which I believe we will.

Even if we pass Toronto we are still in a wild card spot, I would much prefer be in a fight for one of those guaranteed top three spots. Just my opinion....

 

Baby steps. We just want to get in and get healthy, after that I think we have a dangerous team to take on anyone.

Reimer is terrible. The Leafs look like the most vulnerable team around the Red Wings right now. 

 

Leafs look like the most vulnerable because it's the same tune that happened in Anaheim. Carlyle looks to have lost the team, and after his comments about Reimer and the feud between him and Kadri the lockerroom is a mess.

Which is exactly why I said a nomination.  The 2nd part of your statement is some weird attempt at questioning the coaching staff I take it?   I'm confused.

 

Don't think that's what he/she meant, it was taken in different context.

 

I read it as the Wings have been so successful in the last 20 years they won't win it based upon that. If the Wings bottomed out for 3 years and went on to make the playoffs then Babcock would probably win it.

Just because we have the lead, doesn't mean we have to play like s***.

 

I agree. It all of a sudden looks like we stopped skating...

Kid is incredible. Going to be a great future star for us. He is proving he doesn't need Zetterberg and Datsyuk to put up points which is great.

The Wings have 11 players on their roster from the Calder Cup winning team. Griffins have 10.

 

Let that sink in for a little.
