Yeah, Jurco's a little outclassed against the big boys. Move Tatar up and put Jurco on the third. See what he can do against lesser competition.
Too bad Bert couldn't cash in that wraparound.
I went back and took a look. The quick whistle on the first one definitely should have been a goal, but the offside was on Anderson. If he just moves the puck a few inches to get it in the zone instead of playing with it on the blue line, that whistle never happens.
I remember something Fedorov said to the Anaheim coach(could've been Babs?) after he started playing for them, and he was complaining that the D never passed him the puck, and Babs told him the reason they didn't give him the puck was b/c they couldn't, they didn't have the skill like he was used to having in Detroit, getting that first pass on the tape to spring him through the neutral zone with speed
so yeah, I agree it is a big problem with the team now- not enough d-men that can make that first outlet pass out of the zone
I vaguely remember that. We have been spoiled for years on the blueline, and most of it wasn't fully appreciated while it was here, and only now are people realizing how good we actually had it on the back end.
Just finished cooking dinner with my wife, settling in for the game. I will be cracking open the birthday present she got me a few days early: a bottle of Macallan 15 year Fine Oak. Hopefully the spirits will be good luck for the Wings.
I'm hoping things click for the Wings in a big way and they demolish the Pens.
