#2679714 Lindros, Makarov, Vachon, Quinn going to the Hall

Lindros's performance in the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals was an integral part of the Detroit Red Wings franchise's first Stanley Cup in 42 years.

Well, I guess we're up against the wall so here we go, a Voodoo Witch Doctor chanting Kucherov, Johnson, Killorn & Drouin all night long

Hopefully, this is a learning experience that Blashill can build upon and improve.  Part of that learning experience should obviously be to fire Pat Fershweiler immediately.... since he contributes to Red Wing losses about as much as the opposition.

I blame Pat Ferschweiler for the loss.  And Ken Holland, indirectly, for not firing Pat Ferschweiler long ago when he proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he sucks terribly large buffalo testicles at his job.

Like Smith in. Don't really like Quincey out (unless he's hurt). Like Mrazek in (it's just the right decision. Howard should be starting game 3 as well if the roles were reversed). Don't like Andersson still in the lineup. I could understand being conservative at the start of the series, but not now. I can understand playing Andersson over Pulkkinen for size, but at least put Jurco in for him.

But in any case... LET'S GO RED WINGS!!! Come out hungry from puck drop on and show everyone that it isn't just about making the playoffs and extending the streak. Show us you want more that that!!

It's pretty tough when the officials are handing out momentum builders to the opposition like candy.  Should have been coincidental minors on Abdelkader and Johnson (interference or diving - take your pick).

 

Any way sliced, the officiating decisions are the difference in the game at this point imo.

When in the blue hell did Ericsson get 20 points!!!


Well, he had 4 points last year in 7 games.... while Smith had no points in 5 games.

Just finished - had to watch on DVR.  The good news is that, if game 2 is just like game 1, Detroit can win if they can just learn one lesson from game 1.

 

The bad news is that lesson is "don't be complete morons and blow your assignments in the defensive zone."  Which begs the obvious question of... why said lesson wasn't learned long ago by all involved.

Definitely a much more acceptable performance from an effort perspective. Turn it up even more in the 3rd.

All they had to do in that period, really, was not be completely stupid and give up glorious chances to the opposition. Of course, they couldn't do that. Not to mention not dragging the back foot like they actually know what offsides is. These clowns better start showing some desperation and desire post f-ing haste.

Mrazek is young and did come in for Jimmy last game. Jimmy has had to come in for Mrazek quite often recently also.

Mrazek is still the goalie of the future for Detroit, but Jimmy is the right guy to start today based on recent performance, imo.

They like to call coincidental penalties when Tampa starts the roughing, just not the other way around.
