#2599838 ECQF Game 4 GDT : Lightning 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) - Series Tied 2-2

Posted by joesuffP on 23 April 2015 - 09:41 PM

It's alright when you think about it like we stole game 1 and they stole game 4. It just makes me sick to think how close we were. Aside from Ericsson letting his man walk straight to the net, our defense played great and we got good goaltending, aside from the first goal. We just seem lacking offensively. Could have run up the score, especially on the PP's that were wasted.

Mrarzek should have had that first goal. He saves that bad angle short side shot then we win 2-0.... no chance on the other goals. It's infuriating that our "top pairing" is the most easily rattled players we have on the team. DD and Q are pretty much better at every facet of defense. What do we do with E and Kronner? Locked up long term and pretty much keep our defense stagnant at mediocrity unless we upgrade so much they're on the 3rd pairing

Kronwall blew so many plays offenisvely. DD and Quincey, and even Ericsson have really raised their game but Kronwall doesn't look anywhere near an impact player.

Wings played great, all the way down the lineup but I do agree that it was a game of inches. I never felt comfortable watching the game until Glendening scored that empty netter. That SH breakaway Mrazek saved, the 5 on 3 and a handful of missed nets. I still think the Wings were the better team and deserved to win but all the dumb penalties kept Tampa in the game




#2596609 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by joesuffP on 19 April 2015 - 01:15 PM

Ericsson is getting the job done. There is a million other things that are hurting us worse than Ericsson in this series. Has he even been on the ice for a goal against in this series? Usually our defense is our downfall but i think they have stepped up down the stretch and these first two games. Aside from Datsyuk and the 4th line our forwards have been complete garbage

If I'm Datsyuk I stop passing to Z entirely

Penalty calls were ridiculous, especially in the third.

we really don't need to s*** all over Howard just because Mrazek played a good game


Won't lie and say that I saw this coming.  Still shaking my head at how Wings pulled that one out of the hat.  

 

Not to temper people's excitement but I'm still a realist.  Last year, we won first game vs. Boston then lost next 4 and out in 5 ...

That's what I keep thinking about

Loved seeing Dekeseyer level Flippula... he had a great game, looks like a vet

Most saves in a regulation playoff win for a Red Wing by Mraz... making history

He's a competent 5/6 defensively but besides his speed, you don't see a lot of offensive upside to his game which is concerning at this point of his career. I think Babs makes him nervous. A guy with his skill set should be physical at least

Put Z and D together we have 1 trustworthy line that can play all situations. They were separated all year and Z managed to lead the team in points. They've played 3 games together and suddenly it's unthinkable to seperate them

I like splitting up Dats and Z. Yeah they've acored but they're not playing unbelievable or anything. Our center depth is one of the advantages we have over Tampa

I wouldn't like to see that. Ever.


people getting carried away with the Ericsson hate. He's actually been playing great lately
