#2480359 2/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Capitals 6 (OT)

Guys, this isn't on the refs. We spotted the Caps three goals in the first by playing the absolute worst "hockey" we have ever played. As always, we do it to ourselves.

It needs to be said: we are a disaster. Yeah, five goals, great. But six goals against.

 

Remember when a game against the Panthers didn't feel like Game 7 of the SCF?

What's reassuring is that their "downs" haven't really been that bad.  Normal for players of any caliber.  And they seem to bounce back from droughts, unlike, say, Brunner.  They're the real deal.  Let's just hope they're not playoff chokers now, haha.

 

Well, we already know Nyquist can be clutch in the playoffs. Tatar, I feel like he was born to play on The Big Stage.

I like to believe that it has more to do with that he's finally lost the jitters.  He's the counterpart on this team to Tatar as far as our young guys go.  Both have had some ups and downs this year and they're both really comfortable in the NHL now.  So other teams better look the f*** out cause we have 2 dynamic duos on this team now and that's not counting Sheahan and Jurco who are getting really comfy here.

 

If I had to guess, I'd say it was mostly a timing/rhythm/pace issue. When he was cold, everything he was doing was just a half-second or half-an-inch off, i.e. he had to re-adjust to the NHL game after having adjusted to the AHL game.

Franzen might be done for the season. Datsyuk, who knows. We have no defense. Jimmy is on drugs. Heaven help us.

We can't handle speed, aggression, pressure. And every team knows it.


They tried.

 

And they failed. Quincey and Colaiacovo, not good enough.


Why would Z go back-door on that play?

We need more low-percentage shots from the point. Those work really well for us.

I'm down with firing Babcock. Best coach in the league, but pretty clearly losing this locker room. Yeah, I know, injuries, but the guys who win the Jack Adams are the guys who make contenders out of injury-ravaged lineups (e.g. MacLean last season, John Cooper this season). Even with the injuries we have, we've got enough talent that we shouldn't have to get on our knees and pray for a regulation win every single night. We've become underachievers, and it's pathetic.

 

Crash for Blash!

This is actually kinda kinky. "We're gonna play drunk and injured. And you're gonna play sober and give it all you've got. And we're still gonna win. You suck that much."

 

Also, I hate Kyle Quincey.

Hey Dabura, I was in the bathroom when Nyquist scored  :lol:

 

As long as you weren't scoring with Nyquist in the bathroom.

That is why we have Alfie on the point. Knew exactly what he wanted on that shot and got it. Harder than it looks.

it appears the Wings have already checked out for the Olympic break Superbowl.

Thats Sochi spot they just showed? Not a single shot of hockey.




#2479611 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

I like to think that Kenny literally kicks tires. Like, he has this small collection of tires that he keeps somewhere in his office, and every day he kicks them. Then he wonders why no one is calling, so he tries kicking them again, this time with the other foot. You get the idea.

Ovechkin and Datsyuk have a secret post-game chat.
