#2604635 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Everyone's just going to ignore the fact that Z looked way more effective as a center than everyone besides Datsyuk. He's also been more productive and the series changed as soon as he was moved from Dats wing to centre

If you stare at the stats then everyone jumps on Nyqvist but he was a hell of a lot better than Tatar. He's always in on the puck and getting zone time. Tatar has no forecheck to his game and kills all offence if he's actually handling the puck and he also saved his worst game for game 7. He still dourest know how to play playoff hockey. Gus was good, sometimes it doesn't translate on the stat sheet, much like most of our forwards




#2602947 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by joesuffP on 28 April 2015 - 08:07 PM

Could have something to do with all those Kronwallings that went unpunished. The NHL has always found loopholes to keep important players playing in important games so of course they would make an exception for the Red Wings. Kronner must be devastated. Reminds me of 07 when Pronger got a game suspension in a pivotal game against us in the WCF and the Ducks rallied without him and won. Well, I hope anyways




#2602467 ECQF Game 6 GDT : Lightning 5 at Red Wings 2 - Series Tied 3-3

This series has been good but the Wings losing game 7 wouldn't even bother me all that much (maybe). They have huge holes on offence and defense and Tampa just has way more skill and fire power than us, even if they play some uninspired hockey. I don't think Tampa has the guts to go to the finals. After game 2 Tampa has pretty much only been able to score after we make dumb mistakes, which is bound to happen with this roster. Need a great dman and great winger plus some growth from our younger players

Looks like the Wings expected Tampa to just lay down and die. They need a big play quickly. Going to Tampa for game 7 won't be easy

Glendening is the biggest factor for us right now. It's unbelievable how much of an impact this man has

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.  




#2598273 ECQF Game 3 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 3 - DET Leads series 2-1

Posted by joesuffP on 22 April 2015 - 12:33 PM

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
