#2513937 ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

You guys are bitching about Franzen, but he's tied for the team lead in points in these playoffs.

 

Because he made a pass 4 feet behind Datsyuk and Dats is just a witch and hauled it in and scored? Way to go, then, Johan.

I think he's hinted he might go that way if Andersson isn't really clicking right off the hop and/or he wants to get into the matchups chess game straightaway.

 
Alfie's out, back problems. Andy's taking his spot on the third line, but he'll probably get bumped down to the fourth, with Leggy moving up to the third.


Oh I thought he was talking about casino Babcock lol

Am I doing this right?

That made my day marc!

Edit: lol it really does work! I'm cracking up. Disney should reimburse LGW for endorsement!


Yup disney.com for everyone :)

My biggest conceen is where are the vets on this team?

 

Hey, Franzen leads the team in assists in this series.  

 

In all seriousness, the vets you refer to are for the most part too old to contribute.  Bertuzzi, Sammy and Cleary are not playing, and shouldn't be.  Alfredsson is like 41 years old and has gotten worse as the season has gone on.  Someone mentioned earlier today that he looks like he's hurt.  If so, that explains it.  

 

Franzen's goal scoring has tailed off over the last month plus.  I'm not surprised he's struggling this season.  He wasn't going to get any better at 34, or play any harder than in the past.  He's not a leader because he's too lazy.   

 

Kronwall is the one I'm most disappointed with.  He needs to play with a chip on his shoulder after his abysmal offensive output in last year's playoffs.  He had a great chance early in the game, but ended up blowing it.  He's a much better player than the guys I mentioned above, and I expect him to step up at home.

 

The other vets are Datsyuk and Zetterberg.  Datsyuk has looked good, but is neutered with bad linemates (thanks Kenny).  Zetterberg is a big question mark.   I hope he can play in this series, because I don't see us winning without him.

Franzen needs to start playing or be bought out. He is not worth the cap hit for the 25 games a season he shows up for. The rest he brings nothing to the team. He can't live off the playoffs anymore as he now has just as many bad ones as he has good. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

NBC has great love for the Nutcracker and all things Boston Goon related.  I take back what I said earlier about out-smarting and out-playing them. The Wings are going to have to figure out how to out-goon them, somehow.


You mean bring back Dmitri Mironov to take slappers at their chests and Marian Hossa to give them the Berard treatment? I don't think it's necessary.

Everybody should have expected the Bruins to come out hard today, and their shenanigans shouldn't have surprised anyone.

Howard's giveaway just set the tone for the B's to dominate, and the quick second goal after a complete defensive breakdown just added fuel to their fire. The fourth goal was also weak, IMHO. Howard still made some great saves, but they lost this game in the first. The anemic PP compounded the issue.

Nobody should have expected the Wings to cone out of Boston up 2-0. Few people beforehand would have given them a shot at the split. If the PP actually converts in the 1st or 2nd it's a completely different game. I'll take the split.

Regroup and come out for game three focused and ready to play. The Sunday afternoon on NbC malaise has been evident all season. It's a best of 5 now.

Team with the best team in the NHL vs. the 8th best team in the east, Detroit wasn't going to sweep.  Not a great game, but I'm ok with the split.

Boston has played this game like a must win which it basically was. Wings played it like they were content with a split going home. Plain and simple. Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk

I agree. All they have to do (aside from fixing the power play) is say, "Do what we did in Game 1. Don't do what we did in Game 2."


Ya let Boston try the BS stuff after the whistle, take it and go to the bench. Don't get goated into their game and obviously the pp needs work. On a positive note I thought we've played really well 5 on 5 since the end of the 1st, and pavel datsyuk is far and away the best player in this series

I'll take the split. Boston may be winning but I'm not impressed with them.

Say it with me everyone... SEVEN-GAME-SERIES.

 

We made the playoffs with two games to spare, the Bruins clinched weeks prior. We are going back home with the series tied 1-1.

 

If this team has proven anything this season it's that they can step up in big moments and win games they shouldn't win. There was some clutch play out of this same team not weeks ago when it came down to making it this far or not. 

 

We might win, we might lose, but we made it this far, and we are facing a tied series now. There's zero reason to jump ship at this point if you have stuck it out all year and seasons prior.
