#2600932 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

Well played all around. We deserved this.


Kronwall played one of the best games he's played in a long time.


The rest of the defense also deserves credit for dominating the second half of the 1st period and all of the 2nd.


Great backchecking by everyone!


Let's take care of business on Monday! Detroit Rock City!

Abby made his presence felt.

Petr has taken the reigns.

Defense stood up.

Awesome game!

You separate Pav and Z at the start and play a tight checking defensive game... especially on the road where TB gets the last change, makes sense to separate them for matchups.

If we take the lead, keep em separated... we need a goal late 2nd or the 3rd, they get put back together.

Depends on the situation.


But that's not the worry. Defensive zone turnovers are the worry.

I really like how our lines are looking... Helm-Pavs-Tats is such a good line

Totally agree with the Glen/Miller post. Every time someone comments that Miller is expendable and doesn't add anything I shake my head. These guys are the reason our record is what it is.


We're top 10 in Goals for, Goals against, Goal Differential, Penalty Kill, and Power Play.

That's not to diminish nestrasil either, Cuz he's not a bad third liner, he seems snake bitten too, and his positioning is pretty damn good too but Jurco seems like a larger part of our future than him, and if he develops good chemistry with helm then our third line could be dominate once he gets going.

Tonight on that wraparound attempt from helm, where Jurco drew the hooking call, they just played off each other really well...
But then again so did nestrasil, you can see him lurking up ready to jump in the play or fall back....theyre honestly not a bad checking line, they do a lot of good things together which will only get better the longer they're together.
Unfortunately they're not scoring, but Jurco hard in that sophomore slump, and being dominant in the ahl would probably do wonders for him.

Agreed. Man, that one sequence where Quick stood on his head... I would have loved to see one of them cash in. Totally agree that Jurco has a way higher ceiling... just need to get him going.
