meh....a mistake by Howard and a pp goal. Boston ain't impressed me yet...
Good for Smith getting mad. He should have dropped his gloves and hit him square in the nose. Drrrrrrrop! Chara has lurch speed, he wouldn't've known what to do...he reminds me of Andre the Giant....der derp duh arg, derp.
It depends on what else they do. I'd like to see Marchenko on the 3rd pair, but the free agent market is going to be paper thin, with a few decent players and a bunch of guys who are old, injury prone, or just plain bad, if not a combination of them. The odds are anyone they'd sign won't be much of an upgrade, if at all, just have different issues. Ideally they can trade Kindl and a prospect or two and get a top 4 quality defender and use Smith and Marchnko as the 3rd pair with Lashoff as the #7. If not, trading Kindl for a pick and re-signing Quincey to a pay cut to play on the 3rd pair won't be the end of the world.
Playing one decent game against a floundering Blues team does not necessarily equal a Hall of Fame career.
Always such a pleasure to listen to Dave Strader call a game. Ken Daniels isn't bad, but Strader is just so smooth and professional and doesn't fall back on a lot of the silly clichés. Dave and Mickey were the best.
Any loss is disappointing, but these games happen. They had a ton of chances, just couldn't capitalize. I find myself not wanting to wish for one team over another because it never ends well when the Wings get the team I think is the "easier" team.
