With this lineup, I didn't. We did get 3 of 4 points. But they need to improve in shootouts.
It starts with Howard. He can't let beach balls get past him each time there's a breakaway. And yeah, he played a good game, but still, he needs to be better in shootouts. Whether you like them or not, they're a part of the NHL, and for bubble teams like the Wings, they're immensely important.
This one actually started with Nestrasil looking like a 6 year old boy trying to score on his dad.
You guys are forgetting Malkin didn't play. Not sure if he's going to be ready for the playoffs or not but he's an ENORMOUS factor. I would have loved the win to cap off a great night though. 23 years it is. Go Wings!
You're forgetting Cleary will be back in the playoffs.
This is the time of year he lives for. He doesn't care about the rest of the season. He rises to the occasion in the clutch, when most of us would fail under similar pressure.
