Glendening should play on a line with Tatar cause he can actually keep up with him.
Babcock should be leaning on our offensive guys and load up. This strategy of balancing everything out between four lines is why you don't score in two and half hours of hockey I think Babcock is playing the injury excuse more than anyone
Just saw that Mantha shootout goal highlight. Impressive to say the least....
Mantha was interviewed about it and said something like he came in and just waited for the goalie to make the first move then deked. Made it look easy on a very good Swiss goalie. That's some instincts you can't teach. He reminds me of Rick Nash a little bit. What I love about him is he doesn't force anything or hold on to the puck too long
Are people really bashing Howard? He was Detroit's MVP for sure... made a bunch of good saves and didn't have much of a chance on either goal
he pooped himself in the shootout. the winning goal was a flubbed shot and it still went in so pretty much anything directed at the goal was going to go in. i just have no sympathy for howard after that nashville game. gus has been the better goalie all year no reason why howard deserves to be in the net.
What penalties did you have a problem with? I believe it was an obvious trip and 2 high sticks. They had to be called. Canada carried the play for over half the game. Power plays usually follow when that happens. US had the advantage in power plays earlier in the game while they were carrying the play
