I'd say the Red Wings almost won that period. If they would've had the lead, I'd say yes. Finishing their checks, taking a lot of shots (sans Cleary). I like how this team has started out. Keep it coming well have a good shot.
win the next 2 periods Detroit. That Abby move made him look like he scores 40 goals a year...what an absolutely amazing individual play to have his stick in the way, steal the pass, and race away from the backcheck and still score.. geez this game already has me going crazy
Well if the way Babcock spoke about game 1 in no uncertain terms, I REALLY hope this means the Wings will respond tonight and no not some stupid 10 minutes of the first period response, I need to see an entire game effort.
All in all, today turned out fairly well for the Wings. But yeah, no more of this 1 point SO loss garbage. Wins are required.
Pretty nuts to think that the biggest game of the season for Detroit is aginst the Coyotes at home, but it is what it is. No one is going to feel sorry for this team if they don't come out and show they want to be in the playoffs. Tonight went fairly well for Detroit, but this all means nothing if they don't take advantage of the 2 games in hand on Columbus.
