I wish I could blame the Refs for this lose....but not even bad calls could explain this one. The Wings look like a team that is 23 and 40 near the end of the season. From the body language I seen, it looks like they just gave up after going down 3-1. Plenty of time to catch up, but why bother it seems. No retaliation for the Hudler hit? Not even a scrum? You can make all the line changes, trades, or bring in players from the minors. But you cant give players back their heart. That is what we are missing right now. For the next games, let the Griffins play the Ducks. I know the Minor League players would show some heart.
LoL, panic mode after a losing two games of seven. Never in my life have I heard a sports analyst, or any sports reporter type, say being a new father effects performance. Howard is what....27? His body should be able to handle some nights of loss of sleep easily. Now if we are talking about Lidstrom, maybe OP's point would make more sense.
