I am just fuming after that 4 minute PP. The wings are playing to lose. No intensity. Kindl was completely useless. He was afraid to go after the puck. He just backed away and let the Dallas player go and get it. Babcock better tear a bit of skin off his team's arse and demand a better, griity performance.
i don't know that the refs letting them play out there really benefits us. the pp has been hot.
That's right. The refs won't be giving Detroit many, if any, PPs tonight. Dallas will likely get the first powerplay. The young goalie is pumped and hot. It will be very difficult to score on him. Luckily, the wings got a lucky bounce.

Kronwall trying his best to make us lose
I was watching both the PP and the PK and wondering what was wrong. I think it's Kronwall. He's nowhere close to being a proper leader. Maybe he's putting too much pressure on himself. Personally, I'd rather see Ericson on the point because he has the hardest shot on the team. Defensively, he and Kronwall are both liabilities. Babcock needs to change something and this is certainly something that should be tried.
Nashville is a very disciplined team that has been well coached. Trots has shown them how Detroit tries to clear the puck and how they try to use the boards. A Preds player is right there where the puck comes off the boards. They know what Detroit is going to do. Babcock is being out coached again. The man has no new ideas.
A week or so ago I mentioned that it was unusual for Franzen not to be hurt yet. Well - Bingo. Now he has a bad back. He will likely be out a week. That's all he needs - to find out that there is an easier way not to work hard.
