#1910186 3/7 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Blackhawks 4

Their goalie is making saves, ours isn't.

Pretty simple stuff.


I don't think Chicago necessarily played all that much better than the Wings.

We had a more consistent attack (but nobody on this team can finish).

We did have some pretty bad turnovers, but Chicago did as well.

The difference to me has been Howard's terrible rebounds.

The first goal was 100% a result of his inability to direct rebounds into the corner, it went right back into play (like it always does) and they capitalized.

Can't blame him on the second goal.

But there have been plenty of times in the first where Chicago gets more of an opportunity to do something because the first shot is kicked right back into the slot by Howard.

He has played well this season, but rebound control is horrible by him, and most of his bad games are where teams capitalize on that.

Lets try to stay on Vladdy here guys:

I am just glad to see he remembers his old friends and that he is on the walker and out of the chair.

I cannot judge the divorce at all. I feel bad for Vladdy because it must be hard on him, but I don't know what went down, and I can't dislike his wife for it at all. She stood by him for so long, we don't know what happened. I just hope to see Vladdy keep getting better, and I hope he stays a big part of our organization as a motivation and a reminder that their are in fact bigger things than hockey.

I remember how sad I was the day of the accident, I just didn't believe it. Glad to see Vladdy is a bit better.

It is sad that only Vladdy gets any recognition still form it. Mnatstakov wasn't a player, and was only the team masseuse but his story is equally tragic, and I would hope he gets similar support as Vladdy as well.
