#2278264 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blues 2 (SO)

I never said it shouldn't have been a penalty. I'm saying Backes is either really really soft, or he embellished. The blood probably came from hitting his chin on the diving board.

I don't know how you can say they are looking better from that game. They played hard for about four minutes of the game, got a lucky bounce to tie it, then settled back and held on for a convincing shootout win.

That won't do you any good in the playoffs.

They only gave up one goal and they won. That's better than the last two games. :)

Seriously....who is this Franzen everyone keeps talking about?

He is struggling now but I fully expect Mule to come alive in the playoffs.

They're looking better. That's all I can ask at this point in the season. Good D and goaltending, The scoring will improve.

The Nucks, Hawks, and Kings have all been rolling the last 10 games. The Wings haven't. It's a little late in the season to still be tweaking lines but there is still time to get their game in order.

I'm anxious to see how the second line performs today.

Please don't come out with an effort like the last game.

Oh, and hey, Rinne,


Thanks, Mike. Stellar job. :thumbup:

Just duplicate the effort of the last game.

Win and move up to a 5 point lead on Chicago and move ahead of the Preds. Sounds like a good enough reason to me.

#2273868 Needs to be said

Posted by MidMichSteve on 25 March 2012 - 11:26 AM

I would not want to take the risk of playing against the Sharks in the first round and give up any home ice advantage during the playoffs.

Plus, no team lower than a 5th seed has won the cup before. Not sure I want to give up on the Cup just because the team is underachieving right now.

Well said. :thumbup:

Home ice is extremely important in the playoffs, particularly for the Wings this season.

#2273133 Which team would piss you off the most if they won the cup?

Posted by MidMichSteve on 23 March 2012 - 10:45 AM

Sharks. I hate the Sharks. As happy as it would make me if they missed the playoffs, I would love it if Detroit would sweep their asses even more.

Conks gets a reprieve from his day job.

#2271548 Do the Pens Have the Cup Locked Up?

Posted by MidMichSteve on 19 March 2012 - 01:09 PM

Nobody wins the Cup in March. Seriously, how many times have we seen the Wings dominate in March, then get knocked out in the first or second round? The playoffs are a totally different game. Everybody gives a little extra. There's a little more fighting in the corner for loose pucks. More willingness to give up the body to block shots. More willingness to stand in front of the net to chip in a loose puck or deflect a shot. All these little things make a big difference in the postseason. Winning in the regular season is all good and fine, but they won't be playing Carolina, Winnipeg, Isles or Leafs in the playoffs and the good teams they'll be playing will be playing much differently than they are now. I'm not saying they won't change themselves, but winning a bunch of games in the regular season doesn't prove anything. Our fan base has learned that lesson a bunch of times.

And we promptly forget it at the beginning of every season.....myself included. :rolleyes:
