#2567569 1/31 GDT : Islanders 1 vs. Red Wings 4

Wings can't beat any good Eastern teams.

 

Mrazek is the worst.

 

No kidding eh?

 

This game should keep the s***-trolls away for awhile. Where’s SimonSin?

Pretty good period. Thought Johnson manufactured that interference call on Glendenning. Need to cut down on turnovers for the rest of the game. 




#2567341 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Do I think Holland would pull something like this off? Back when he had fire and drive for sure...the current Holland would hardly do it. 

 

:lol:

 

 

I mean other than Mantha, Larkin and obviously McKee I'm sure other teams do have their own Pulkinnen, Athanasius, Ouellette... So none of them alone will return much

 

 

:lol:   :lol:

Wait, you mean our rookie, third string, goalie had a bad game against the best offensive team in the league?  What a bum!

 

In all seriousness, I'm glad to hear it. Obviously, looking at the score it seemed like one of those games where we just looked retarded for 60 minutes.  If the team played well, and Peter was just off, oh well.  Obviously I'd like to see them win, but over the course of an 82 games season you're going to lose some games.  If that's the case, I'd rather they lose because one guy has a bad game than because 20 guys did. 

 

Oh but haven't you heard? Last night's loss means they can't beat any of the good teams. The 65 points they've earned this season have come from playing Buffalo 30+ times and doing well in skating drills in practice :lol:

So, I didn't have a chance to watch this one last night.  What the hell happened? 

 

Nothing as bad as you'd read in this thread.

 

Wings were better in the first. Tampa were better in the second. Shots were pretty much even after 2.

 

Mrazek was ugly-bad, and that was the difference in the game. Plain and simple.

 

McCollum played well enough in the third to keep some of Tampa's hotdogs from padding their stats. Small victories........

Take it easy.  We're just talking about the other playoff teams in the division.  But who cares about beating them, right?


Ah yes. I forgot. Only calm level-headed discussions, grounded in the roots of logic exist here on LGWs in the wake of brutal ass-thumpings.

And here I thought I people were overreacting by making blanket statements about who the Wings can and can't beat after a game where our rookie net-minder had a save percentage of .666.

That and, you know, the presence of SimonSin is always a good indication that we're having a rational conversation.

My apologies.

Best team in the east will be a tough test would be happy with one point

 

Actually, right now The Wings and Isles are better. But if you say so........


 

High Praise from Jon Cooper

 

Joe Smith @TBTimes_JSmith 8m8 minutes ago

#TBLightning Cooper said the #RedWings are best team in the East. "Everything goes through them. They're the real deal."

 

 

Yeah, I'd rather be underestimated, tbh.

 

Although I doubt he really feels that way. Probably just trying to challenge his own team more than anything.

In response to that first link: Mr Murray, maybe the reason it's so slow in trade land is because GMs like you are asking for the moon for a guy like Chris Stewart

 

In reponse to that second link: d'uh

Have you watched the last 6 games? I'm loving the wins. Unfortunately they are not indicitive of our play lately. Can't keep getting 4 goals against and expect to win

 

I watch all the games. Typically, after a win, I’m happy. Regardless. I figured after the break that tonight’s game would resemble a game of pond hockey, and it did. What I take away is that they played well and got clutch goaltending late in the game, when it mattered. 

 

I was way more upset about blowing the lead last Tuesday.

 

That leaves four other games in this 6 game stretch, in which they held two good teams to 2 goals per, Buffalo to one,  and had crappy 1st period against Buffalo in another. 

 

Don’t worry, they’ll soon be losing games 2-1 in California. I’m happy to see them rack up the points now. 


and the sad thing is when Jimmy takes over again the goals against will go down but the goals for will too and he will get crucified like theres no tomorrow even though Mrazek has not been great in every one of these games his 5-0-0

 

He was great late in the game tonight. Because he’s clutch.

Detroit is playing leafs hockey the past couple weeks.

 

Funny. Their record says otherwise.

Apparently we can't kill any penalties when mrazek plays. Gotta save that

 

BUT, we can win shootouts   ;)
