#2589644 4/5 GDT : Washington Capitals 2 at Red Wings 1

Agreed. I guess I'm just not very confident in those two games being as easy as they should be on paper to win. The Wings look defeated and either gassed and/or injured as a group. Helm and Nyquist are the only players that looked like they had anything in the tank tonight.

 

I don't think they looked gassed the second and third period tonight. They just had a very well coached quality team in front of them. That should be different with Carolina. Plus opposite to our usual games against bottom feeders I'm optimistic that we will be desperate enough to fight through these games if things don't go our way. Wings showed that kind of attitude the last two games.

That's what you get for not starting on time and trying to play come back against a very good goalie and Trotz as coach. The Wings played well in the second and third period, but they aren't skilled enough to win games with 40 minute efforts.

Both Carolina games are must-wins and maybe try to steal a point in Montreal. It's truly astounding that it has come to this point. What a collapse.

 

Agreed, but the we also didn't have puck luck today. In end it's simple : Win the two games against Carolina and we're in. It's still in our own hands.

Anybody who thinks the Wings "don't care" or "don't want it" should rewatch that celebration.

 

They should watch the whole third + OT. The whole team was fighting like lions out there.

Nice kill and a decent game overall but we desperately need that second point.

I'm out buying a suit for my GPAs funeral, so updates would be awesome guys and gals!

Condolences. We'll provide you with some updates.

Sens remaining schedule looks far to easy for my taste. Only tough game is NYR, and maybe the slumping Pens. Otherwise it's a cakewalk compared to ours and Bostons.

Are we able to beat the Wild ?

Wild not slumping..................................check

no rookie or slumping goalie .................check

no rookie without a goal.........................check

 

 

That means none of the shenanigans that the Wings can't overcome. Guys and gals, we actually might be able to win this.

Given how crappily the Wings lost that game, I have to say I'm surprised how mellow it is here in the GDT.  Everyone being pretty civil.  

 

The Wings are melting down more than this forum right now.  It's eery.   

 

 

Has our spirit been broken?

 

 

 

(and no, I'm not saying people should start acting out and personally attacking each other)

 

 

We probably just got used to it. :P Which tells more about the state of the team right now than anything else.....

I don't think this loss is on Mrazek. Sure, third goal is a stinker, but he saved our asses many times before that happend. He was also hung out dry at least at the first goal, arguably at the second too.

1st and 2nd period tells me this is all about confidence. We need to find a way to rebuild it. Great teams are made by situations like these.  Guess we will find out if the Wings are pretty soon.
