I would agree - but if howard doesn't deflate the building with that softie to start the game we might be playing much better. We were okay before that happened. 

 

We're on the same page, then. I think? I'm saying Howard has to save that. He has to be a wall for us, like he was in the first game. He can't be anything less than phenomenal.

But is Babcock really playing Kindl and Lashoff as much as I think? Or does it just seem like they're out there all the time because they're screwing things up really bad?

 

They're out there all. the. freaking. time. Been that way ever since E got hurt, I think.

At this point, I would put more blame on the lack of goal scoring.  Kinda hard to win games when you only score 1 goal per game.  Heck, today we have nothing and only 3 shots on goal.

 

Lets put it this way, if Howard was allowing 5 goals and losing 5-4, I would agree with you.  *cough cough* Lindback

 

Fair or not, Howard has to stand on his head just to give us a chance in this series. We knew that going in, and nothing's changed. He can't let in softies. Can't happen. That we're not generating offense just hammers the point home. Time for him to earn his big fat contract.

When Datsyuk won game 1 with a similar wrister, do you think Boston fans were calling for Rask? That was a great shot. Maybe not unstoppable, but hardly a gimme. Rewind and look at it again.

 

Rask was totally screened on Datsyuk's shot. He had no chance.

yup dabura is right I believe unless babs switches leggy and andy

 

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.


What? I'm confused. But that's normal

 

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.

What are the lines tonight?

 

No changes beyond Andersson taking Alfie's place on the third line. I think?

The Chief has spoken:

 

http://kuklaskorner....t-came-the-belt

 

The Wings were not outskilled yesterday.  They weren't outcoached. They were beaten down. Their talent is not in question.  Their manhood is. I have to think that the short plane ride from Boston last evening was pretty quiet.

 

This is not about the calls and not about goaltending.  I know. Both are important. But neither are the storyline that will define this series.  The entire thing is going to come down to whether the Wings are willing to hold on to the puck a little longer and absorb punishment like they've never had to endure, for the sake of speed.

 

This is not about Smith's dance with Chara. That was a sideshow.  It meant nothing and nobody should be claiming it was an indication of anything. Coincidental roughing minors?  Really? We're going to point to that as an indication...of what? Tempers? 

 

This series is not going to be determined by toughness after the whistle. Character and courage between them will be the deciding factors.  Grit. It's going to come down to the kind of grit that keeps a strong team from having their way with you in front of your own net, or in the corners.

 

Bang on, IMHO.




#2512812 Howard = Average

Posted by Dabura on 21 April 2014 - 01:12 AM

The thing I don't like about him trying to play the puck more in these past two games is that, by his own admission, it's because he saw Mrazek do it and he thought it was great. Which is fine. I'm all for trying to improve your game and become a more complete player. Just save it for later, i.e. after the playoffs. Don't experiment against the frickin' Bruins. He was probably in their heads a bit, and now he's not, largely because of that stupid mistake.

 

As for him being average, I'd say he's probably above average. Name 12 goalies who would tear s*** up behind our defense.

About Howard - he made a really weird comment yesterday, something to the effect of "You don't really know how it's gonna go until you're in the game. Maybe you have a good night, maybe you don't. You never know." Does kinda make me wonder about him a bit.

Well, he's young, has two games of NHL postseason experience, and he's playing the Bruins. And yet, he's probably our second best defenseman. The slashing penalty was costly and 100% on him, but I've no issue with his play.

 

Also, he's paired with Quincey.

The Bruins need the officials in order to beat us. Whatever.

Or maybe Holland can figure out how to build a team like Boston, instead of taking over a team of Hall of Famers with an unlimited payroll.  

 

We're (likely) gonna go home with a split, all without Zetterberg and Ericsson. We don't need to blow up the team. We need to score a power play goal.
