#2576345 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Predators 3

Posted by TheXym on Today, 05:57 PM

9 points out of 12 on a road trip many thought could bury the Wings. Even without Hank for most of it. If they show up for the opening bell every game, they can do some damage in the postseason. I'd like Kenny to make a trade IF it helps and doesn't thin our prospect pool for a lower tier rental. I DON'T want a trade for the sake of making a trade.

What's the short recap on what I missed? I'm guessing we went up 2-0 then some ticky-tack calls led to the deficit.

Just got in for the phantom call on Smith and the dive (at least they called the embellishment).

Marchenko!!!

On the way home from region chorus (I got a kid into states!!!) and hitting Starbucks for caffeine and to check the score. What is the short recap?

Btw, great GDT - the volleyball for Wilson was a great touch.

I believe everything evens out in the end.
The refs miss some for us, and some against us, same goes for every other team.
The only difference is were paying closer attention to the ones missed on is because those are our guys.

Over time, I'd tend to agree. However, I've said numerous times that BOTH teams and their fan bases deserve a game that is fairly, consistently, and COMPETENTLY officiated. In far too many cases, that hasn't happened. I don't want my team to win or lose on a ticky-tack or, even worse, blown call.


#2573540 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by TheXym on 22 February 2015 - 11:55 AM

Benn should be facing a suspension, but since it was against a Red Wing, and Pronger is now employed by the department of player safety, I'm expecting to be disappointed. Still hoping Hank is OK. It would be only too fitting if next season, Benn went to hit Zetterberg and Hank went low like Stevie Y did on Pronger back in the day.

Pavel does his dangle thing and buries it!

I'm hoping Kindl plays well and racks up a couple of assists. Pairing him with DeKeyser makes sense since it is a bit of a safety valve to allow him to move the puck. Smith/Marchenko is going to gel into a good tandem, IMHO.


#2572819 Corey Crawford, you're gonna be on the news for that

Osgood is very very sympathetic to Crawford after watching this replay.

Maybe they can stream a movie about it. And, I'm no clown, or juggler (or juggalo, for that matter).

Guess he also missed the memo on the Wings management caring about making the playoffs. Clearly it's a priority to them.


But.... I thought the Wheelz were on tha TANK!!!

In all seriousness, if things come together in the near term for the Wings with Cup win number 12, and the playoff streak has stayed intact, how awesome is that?

Cool vid, thanks for the link. Sometimes we just need to sit back and realize how blessed we have been as Wings fans to watch players like Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Lidstrom, and Yzerman on an almost daily basis over the years.

It amazes me that Howard let Kane get that close to him without even trying to poke check him.
And Jesus was that beautiful by tats!
IS THIS REAL LIFE!!


Is this just fantasy?


Edzo's tears are delicious!

Just got in. An unforecast snow squall made it whiteout conditions most of the way home. What's the short recap of the third?

I get it, the missed offsides is the NHL refs' version of subtle interference.

I'm hitting the road, Let's Go Wings! I'd love to arrive home and find a few more in our goal column.
