Congrats to the Blackhawks, but also to the Wings. What a season ending with a lucky OT-Goal in Game 7. I'm pretty exited to see what they can do next season with what is hopefully a stronger rooster. Let's GO Wings !
So that's what this team needed to win... A rooster... I never would have thought of that one. Quick, someone call Kenny.
This team played better than it should have. Came close to beating the president's trophy winners... But didn't have the depth to go all the way. I'm excited for the draft and free agency, a lot of adjustments need to be made.
What a miracle team these 2013 Detroit Red Wings are!!
Yeah! It's really something, isn't it? They were talking about this on the CBC broadcast, and you could tell that even they were impressed. Those last five minutes or whatever it was of the PK and then the complete shutdown during the empty net attack by the Hawks was some of the best hockey I've seen this current team play. Six weeks ago, I couldn't have guessed they would muster enough to pull off a demonstration like that.
Bravo, Babs and the boys...no matter what happens, this game tonight made me very proud to be a Wings fan.
Good article, thanks for posting. The point about Babs learning from Bowman and his ability to adapt is exactly why this team is even in the playoffs. I think what was required to adapt was harder than Babs imagined, but he's finally pulled it off and here we are in the second round. Many coaches can never overcome things like that.
But but but he was supposed to have taken Jimmys job!!!!
That stickwork looks exactly like a younger Jimmy, so why not? Jimmy's stickwork still blows...lol
I remember someone saying that if they're eliminated from the playoffs, that means Tatar can somehow return to the NHL. Not sure if that's correct.
I wish them luck, but at the same time, would rather have Tatar back than wish them luck.
He'd make us even better.
I don't think it matters, didn't Lashoff go back and forth to GR during the playoffs already? I think it's more about keeping Tatar in a spot where he can lead the entire team through the AHL playoffs. Its not just about him, he's allowing the entire team to have a deep playoff run, furthering development.
That was one of the most heartless, passionless, gutless playoff performances I've ever seen from the Wings. Sleepwalking. Somebody better wake them up and tell them the series started.
Did you see the Game 7 comeback by the Bruins the other night? Less than half the 3rd period was left, and they were down by 3, not two. They were playing like crap, looked like they had given up. But, they got their chit together, focused, and bounced back for the win. Why don't the Wings seem to have that kind of character?
Everyone says it was a Leafs collapse...I say it was an inexperienced team shellshocked by thef****** dragon the Bruins suddenly turned into with 9 minutes left in the game.
