I hate Legwand on the 4th line. He is simply not involved in the game playing there. Sheahan should move down a line to center Glennie & Miller. With Nyquist, Legwand was dynamite. Now he is lost in the line shuffle. 


Anyways, I really think the team is coming out with a W today. Veteran Zetterberg is surely thinking, I didn't come back early to have my season end after 2 games. I really hope these guys are not already exhausted from making the playoffs in the last weeks - as I see it, last year was alot bigger push to get in and we almost handled the Hawks in Round 2. No excuses for not getting to the net. No excuses at all. I don't care about Boston's size. There has to be guys fighting through their size, and the calls [hopefully] will come.


Losing to the Bruins isn't the end of the world, as they are the best or close to the best team in all of hockey. But losing 4 straight with no effort inside the Bruins zone is pathetic and I hope the players feel that way. Boston is beatable. Win today and we come home Monday with nothing to lose. Boston doesn't want to lose in front of their home fans today and they don't want another Joe Louis game. So let's get out there, have some fun and run them out of their own building. Everyone had written us off before Christmas. I believe this team has alot more left. I hope.

I hope Bertuzzi coming in is huge but I doubt it. More clutching and grabbing and NO hitting. He doesn't bring anything to the table anymore unless you count his "experience".

All I know is the Mighty Red Machine needs oil and it's on Franzen, Nyquist and Tatar to deliver. Quit waiting on Pavs and maybe a special teams Zetterberg tonight.


Gotta think this game is all Red Wings. I gotta think it. I just gotta.

I'm really sick and tired of this team standing at their blueline and passing out doughnuts to every opposing player who comes into our zone. Way too much open ice for Boston to skate with last night. Even if we can't take every one of them out into the boards, and out of the play, the players need to do a better job at covering the Bruins. I will NOT fault Jimmy in this one - although I did see glimpses yet again of him flailing around which makes him look unsure.


The guys who need to score are not.

The special teams are pathetic. We been going down this road for a few years, but in games against goalies like Rask, these special teams are sometimes all you will have.


Another chance to force this series, and another chance missed. Very discouraging to see the team show up so flat, and unwilling to compete. Babcock can take some of that blame, but I got a feeling that the shine of making it 23 years straight is starting to come off after a fun last month. The kids are looking around, and even overwhelmed a little bit. This is the NHL not the AHL.


I gotta believe we will see a different team tomorrow, because if we go down 3-1 - series over.

I think this team has more to show and more to give this year. I really do. But unless we come out tomorrow and take it right to the Bruins, and show we don't give a damn about their size, and Cup pedigree, we will be looking at hours left on our season.


I think it's time Legwand, Franzen, Nyquist, and Tatar start showing up. God help our defence!!

FlashyG for the W in the morning. Red Wings for the W in the evening.


I'm starting to get familiar with these Boston fans and their stupidity. Gullible - we knew from last year's Marathon and those silly "Boston Strong" banners that popped up, but the are starting to rival Philly fans in all the wrong ways.


The PP sucked. The players never listened to Babcock. They were taught a lesson. And now we move on. No need for many words tonight.

The thing is the Wings should not and can not engage into the physical stuff, the Bruins and everyone else knows it. So what are they trying to do run our guys over and hope for a reaction not rocket science but effective.


One thing to keep in mind other teams will have problems against this team too they are the best team in the east for a reason, so no shame in losing against them.

Best team in the NHL yet the doom and gloom in here like we lost to the friggin Maple Laughs. 

A split is what we needed. We win 2 there and that's HUGE, but we got what we expected. 


The team needs to quit trying to match Boston with physical play, play our game, let the refs [hopefully, maybe, probably not though] call the game properly, and go to the net. But fact is Boston simply could not go down 2 games in this series and expect to win. So they went out there and WON! I got no problem with the game, but if we play into their hands on Tuesday then maybe we can start bitching.

Franzen is invisible but Babcock is hopelessly devoted to the veterans that have got him here before. I can't see Franzen staying this s***ty all series ... I hope I am right.


Wings will be fine. And Chara was slow to drop the gloves .... cause he was doing Smith a favor? Yehhhhh right. Mucho respect to Smith yesterday getting pounded and pounded and never giving up.


Home ice is ours, no excuses about refs, Babcock's lines or physical play. This isn't soccer.
