Him being a better all around player. I don't understand all the flack he's getting I thought he was one of our better players these playoffs. There's more to his game than just points. He's developing as a good playmaker and his defensive game is getting better and better. I think the franchise views him as the more valuable asset as well. Tatar was the most disappointing player these playoffs for me
I just watched Coopers press conference. He was claiming that the game depended on a lucky bounce we got on the Datsyuk goal and they on the other side didn't get, calling it a "game of inches". If thats the message he is sending into the Bolts locker room good for us, because they will loose the series then. While we certainly had our fair share of luck yesterday, but we also outplayed and outworked them. It sounds like he is a little too sure of his team, let's hope they have to pay for it.
Tonight is the series really, we win tonight and put some serious pressure on TB or we're most likely screwed.
I was going to say the same thing. This team must play on the front foot to be successful. They can't be wasting home games trying to catch up to Tampa and not go down 3-1. Draw the line in the sand tonight or don't draw one.
Since shootouts cannot burn us any further this season I'll say the game goes to overtime and instead of losing a shootout 3-1 the Wings win in OT on a goal by Marek Zidlicky.
