#2601021 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

I didn't realize that both the Wings and Montreal have already advanced.  Is this a best of 5?


Exactly everyone just calm down

Now look at Montreals Centers and D... What will they do against us? Price is great but he can't carry them forever

Just got free tickets to the Nats and Cardinals at 4 p.m.  Gives me just enough time to get to the bar afterward for the Wings.  Today is going to rule.

I don't see Howard getting moved.  One, because nobody really needs a goalie of Howard's caliber all that bad.  Two, Ken Holland (and Mike Babcock's) M.O. is to keep guys around for "competition".  Remember two years ago when we had more players than roster spots and cap money?  That would have been an ideal time to waive/trade someone and it didn't happen.  As long as Mrazek is cheap (and he will be for a little while), they'll keep Jimbo around.

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.

Excellent game tonight. And a big atta boy to Brendan smith. He played a really solid game. More of those and he'll get no complaints from me.

From The Score:

"Stat of the Night: The Lightning have been shut out twice in their 85 games this season. Mrazek has both of them."

The Wings win to go up in the series. Mrazek plays great and gets a shutout. Yet people are fixated on Howard??   :eh:

 

I will never, ever understand the desperate need for goalie wars here.

I think it is foolish to believe there is some magical combination of lines that suddenly turns this team into a top tier force...we simply lack the depth and personnel to compete with the Lightning, especially given how inept our top young guys like Sheahan, Tatar and Nyquist have looked.

 

I agree.  I don't think we can compete with them no matter how we arrange the lines.  But I do think that you can arrange players in order to maximize your potential, even if the ceiling on that potential isn't as high as another team. 

 

Babcock's job is to make the Red Wing be as good as they can possibly be.  If that's still not good enough to beat Tampa, so be it.  But if we're not the best "us" that we can be, then he's doing something wrong.  So far, I honestly don't even think he's done a bad job.  We had some key injuries, and you had to know that Tampa was coming out strong.  Now we're in the adjustment phase.  We're very much in this series, but we need to find a way to get guys like Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan involved.  I agree they've looked bad.  But we know they aren't bad.  So whatever the problem is, fix it.  That's partially the coach's job. 

 

I'm eager to see what he does from here on out.

He's like the love child of Axl Rose and Tomas Holmstrom. Sex, drugs, rock n roll, and hockey. Those are the things that really matter in life.

Just don't let him sit at the end of the bench.

Well, now we know what the man in the street is saying at the end of that Radiohead video.

 

"Edmonton gets McDavid."
