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.
I was browsing nhl, and I read the headline "Can't miss: Letang lays Big Hit on Tavares"
Now, correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that blatant interference? Tavares was just skating after a dump in with Letang was ahead of him. Letang puts on the brakes, and throws his back/ shoulder into Tavares. I don't understand how that isn't a penalty. Let alone being heralded as a great hit...
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.
He was grabbed from behind and wasn't ready. Certainly he's not scared of Dubinsky.
Oh, I wasn't implying he was scared of Dubinsky. More than anything else kind of enjoying the fact that Columbus as a whole looked agitated after a loss. Doughty just looked funny covering his head, don't really blame him haha
I'm Canadian, and I find this message offensive towards true Canadians... you know the ones that sit in their garage drinking and not caring what game they are watching or who is commentating, as long as it's hockey
Just make sure they're playing the right way.
As for Murphy, I honestly thought he got much better over time, with a few hiccups in between. Maybe NHL Network? Oddly enough I think this season was his best for analysis done right.
