I've always liked Glenny, but man oh man, who would've thought he'd become this important of a player to this team? You've got to love it.

Now would be a phenomenally great time to capitalize on a power play.

Come to think of it, I think I'm bleeding inside my chest.

 

Okay, maybe not, but my chest actually hurts. Maybe playoff rage isn't healthy.

The beers have moderated me. I am calm again.

Glenny will have a letter on his sweater when pav and z leave.

 

No doubt.

I don't mean to be hating on Z but 34 isn't old lol damn Lidstrom was 42 and playing damn good for his age. I see slapshots that can't even hit the net most of the time Lidstrom hit the net from far out near the blue line just hasn't been any slapshots. I would love to have a screen player like Holmstrom man how i miss those days. I guess I am just not liking whats happening to us as a team. Also worried the hard reality is Babcock is gone this year that leaves some big shoes to fill.

 

Lidstrom never had chronic injury issues.

Mrarzek should have had that first goal. He saves that bad angle short side shot then we win 2-0.... no chance on the other goals. It's infuriating that our "top pairing" is the most easily rattled players we have on the team. DD and Q are pretty much better at every facet of defense. What do we do with E and Kronner? Locked up long term and pretty much keep our defense stagnant at mediocrity unless we upgrade so much they're on the 3rd pairing

 

Kronwall's had to change his game in the post-Lidstrom era and it just doesn't fit him, and E should just be gone. I've said it for ages. He might not be quite as bad as some of us make him out to be at times, but at the end of the day, he too often just doesn't have what it takes. It's the principle of the matter more than anything at this point to me. We hang on to guys like him and we're less inclined to do what we need to do to really make this defense better.

Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive now

Glendening injured his thumb. Says he'll be back for Game 5

 

Best news of the night at this point. I don't believe we'd stand a chance without him. He's too important to shutting down their offense at this point. If he was out, I was throwing in the towel on this series. We might still have a fighting chance now.

I've avoided posting it, though I've thought it a thousand times, but I've never felt that it was more relevant than tonight...

 

This team will never win a Stanley Cup with Jonathan Ericsson.

It could be any goalie. If people are going to put Mrazek on a pedestal as the savior then they need to call him out on his shortfalls just like they would whoever else is in net.

 

Man, you really want to start s***ting on him now the way he's been playing??? It'd be one thing if there weren't mistakes in front of, but there were. And he's been outstanding the last couple of games. He isn't the one dropping the ball right now, it's thef****** defense, in particular that s***ty ass pylon wearing number 52.

Just keep drinking.

 

I lost track of how many beers I've had in the 2nd. I've drank 2 just in the last 15 minutes though now. This OT is going to be absolutely brutal.

It's really weird. It's ok to have some schadenfreude, but not at the expense of a guy who represents your team. What has he really done that makes people hate him so much? The guy had a terrible season, sure. But he responded by getting in excellent shape and playing at an all star level until he got injured. He then lost his starting job to a third stringer. If anything, the guy deserves pity.


Agree. I think Mrazek is locking down the starter role right now moving forward, and I think it's very possible that Howard could get moved this summer. But there's no bad guys here. Howard isn't a terrible goalie. He's not an *******. We're just lucky to have a guy like Mrazek coming up who's pretty damn good, and he's making the most of this huge opportunity. It's a rough deal for Howard. I'm happy for Mrazek, I think he's proving why he's the future starter for this team. But I genuinely feel bad for Howard. Again, he's a good goalie who's had some tough luck. If we move him, I wish him all the best.

Glad we've got an extra day. It's nice to be even after starting on the road, but anyone seeking conciliation in that alone is grasping at straws. This team has been outplayed up and down and needs to be a hell of a lot better to stand a chance. We improved in some areas, but the amount of defensive mistakes in this game was just nuts.

 

And for the love, little GR regular season champs: did you learn absolutely nothing last year?!?!?!?

 

I'd be mad at Z if I believed he could help it, but I just don't think he can at this point. We can't rely on him to be an offensive force.
