#2278233 4/5 GDT : Devils 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 April 2012 - 12:25 PM

Posting this here because I don't think it warrants it's own thread, but the Kings play the first of their two games against San Jose tonight.

I'm a Kings fan too so I'm rooting for them, but keeping the Sharks out of the playoffs would be icing on the cake.

I love Backes' head jerk after Franzen punches him when he's on the ice. It looked like professional wrestling out there.

I was waiting for the ref to turn his back while Franzen went and grabbed a folding chair, or climbed up on the dasher.

I don't really follow the Devils but it seems like even when they're very good, they still have trouble filling seats.

He's one of the only guys on the team who clears guys from the crease. Our other Dmen are either too small, or play like they're too small.

When White was out there last night he practically got shoved into his own net he was pushed around so easily.

After this game, I hereby transfer all of my Ericsson hate to Kindl...

Ericsson looked -- dare I say -- good out there?

E played 26:34 tonight, leading all defensemen.

Malkin and Kane always do that, drives mef****** nuts.

It makes sense as a strategy but it just makes it so much more of a gimmick skills competition. You'd never have that kind of time in a game.

Oh yeah... THAT'S what Mule plays like... NICE

Hopefully he's flipped the switch instead of just playing like he should for a few shifts.

Glad we got a point, but I can't get over the 5 minute PP....such total bulls***.

That was seriously ugly for a team with this much talent.

Letsgowings= Bi-POLAR

yup. Always have been. The bad thing is I think the team caught it from us.

Kindl again. Jesus.

Kindl>Ericsson?

oh if only franzen would harness that anger and remember he's 6'3" 220 all the time.

Agreed.

Though even when he gets angry, it's only for a gloved punch after the whistle.

"anytime ericsson gets the puck go hard on him"

oh god the secret's out.

what's funny is that play highlighted the exact opposite of what they were saying. E took the hit and made a calm pass to Abby.

Wings are handling the Blues forecheck pretty well. Making good outlet passes and not getting rattled by the hits.
