#2640847 12/1 GDT : Buffalo Sabres at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

I also thought the game was more lopsided than the score indicated. The only thing that really annoyed me was Blashill changing the lines after we dominated them for two periods.

Hank had a dumb giveaway on the first goal, 99 times out of 100 he doesn't do that. We gave up 2 power play goals, which we almost never do, on a series of dumb penalties. The only goal I didn't like was the fourth, which involved our 4th line getting hemmed into the d-zone.

I'll consider any game in which we get 4 goals, 40+ shots, and 2 points a success.

We had 3 goals and 30 shots through two periods. Coming around offensively. Which is nice to see.


#2639081 Who and What are the Detroit Red Wings?

Posted by kipwinger on 23 November 2015 - 07:50 PM

Who are the Red Wings? A team that's sitting comfortably in playoff position and one who is now consistently playing well, and often beating, some of the better teams in the league. Yep, that's us.

Seems like there's considerable effort being made to make this team out like its worse than it really is. Look around guys and gals. We are a good team. And the best part? We aren't even as good as we are going to be in a month or two.

Are you trying to explain cognitive dissonance to Frank? Lol.

Am I the only one that's pretty much fine with how we develop, and bring along, talent?

Well, heaping helping of crow for this guy.

AA with two goals tonight. The Jurc assisting on both. Legit chemistry forming between these two.

I hate Pulkkinen. He's more of a passenger than Wesley Snipes was in that one movie.

I'd rather see win or lose with Mrazek in goals than Howie. Howie would be very good with a team that usually score 3 or more goals per game... With a one/two goal Wings, he just can't win regularly.

You'd rather see the Wings lose with Mrazek than win with Howard?  Interesting.  You'll fit right in around here.

Eminem came up empty for me last time, so I need something new.  It needs to be gritty, aggressive, grinding.  Something that's almost synonymous with "fire in the belly", but that's also from Detroit.  Something to be symbolic of the kind of intensity this team needs. 

 

This is hard. 

 

Wings: 3 (Green, Nyquist, Helm)

Kinds: 2. 

 

Oh, I just remembered.  What about this guy?

Lines are stupid as hell.


#2638272 Richards to return Friday; Athanasiou sent to GR

I'm OK with him going down, but I'd love him to stay and play wing on the third line too. I like the idea of suddenly having some size on the wings with him, sheahan, and Abby all playing there.

I'm probably the only one, but I agree with Zetterberg. We won the 5 on 5 battle last night. But its hard to score when all your offensive guys are off the ice. I liked our game minus the penalties. This team is going to be fine.

Can anybody on our team take a slap shot without teeing the puck up first?

Keeping with more of the same after a good win in Ottawa.  Keep on grinding. 

 

Wings:  4 (AA, Datsyuk, Helm, Nyquist)

Wash: 2

 

This.  Is.  Survival of the Fittest.
