So that's what happens when you crash the net

Wings don't know how to run a power play when they're being pressured

Compare the location of Wings' goals vs Tampa's goals. Three of our four goals have been from floaters from the point, and Larkin's breakaway goal. We are not producing around the crease, from the slot, or from the face off dots. They're boxing us out and we aren't hopping on rebounds, or in the case of game 1, we are simply shooting everything from these locations right into a body or wide of the net. Playoffs are won and lost in the area within five feet of the crease, and right now we're losing that battle. The wings have a plethora of issues to overcome but this is the most glaring to me.


#2668646 Silly Question - to go or not to go to game 2?

First world problems in here. Def go. And toss an octopus in the lower bowl.

It's easy to point to goaltending as the reason we lost because hey this is LGW but frankly Bishop and Howard played about evenly. They both made some terrific saves and they both let in goals they want back. I don't think you can look at either one and say he was the reason Tampa won or Detroit lost. If we're going to point at anything as the reason we lost I think the first place we have to look is at all the scoring chances the Wings couldn't capitalize on. For long stretches of that game the Wings were carrying the play. Tampa struggled to keep the puck out of their half of the rink for the first half of the game. We had a 2-1 shot margin on them at one point. Multiple glorious opportunities from the slot that never even made it to the net. And the only two goals that the Wings scored were two otherwise innocuous shots from the point. Even with the average defense and average goaltending and average players and everything not elite about this team, if the Wings were able to capitalize on just one of those several scoring chances they worked so hard to generate the game is a totally different beast.

So many glorious scoring chances not capitalized on

I got say the Wings haven't looked that bad actually. They were controlling the game until Tampa scored, and since then it's been kinda back and forth. The Wings do need to attack the crease though, and less of these unscreened snappers from 30 feet out right after crossing the blueline bulls***.

i feel howards being over praised, during that "bad stretch" of mrazek's our whole team was playing like trash. Wings management just don't like seeing money sitting on the bench, they play the money. Thus is why they so heavily try to rely on dats and Z. Not sayin their incapable just im not sure they can carry this team anymore.

 

The whole team has played like trash more or less all season.  Mrazek has been a dumpster fire since his birthday, and for the most part it has had little to do with the play in front of him.  Since he started playing bad, Howard has been much sharper.  This is why he's been getting the starts.  Not because he gets paid more, but because he has been giving the team the best chance to win.  If it was because of his bigger paycheck, Howard would have been the starter all season long, and that clearly wasn't the case from October to February.

LGW calculated playoff % chance after Ottawa victory over Boston: 58%

Glenny, Abby, and Helm woulda made the grind line guys proud tonight. I'm sure Drapes was smiling up in the press box.

 

They were our best players out there tonight.  




#2664605 A sight for sore eyes.

The guy was a true troll. I mean he's been permabanned and he once again singlehandedly got LGW to discuss his trolliness in a thread originally dedicated to Drew Miller.

Guys a pro.

I'm not Buppy, but I'm ok with not including Tatar in that cap. Said it before, I would trade him for a 6th round pick. What he brings is available for much less on most AHL teams in my opinion. Does not belong.
Yes he scores, when open and facing the goalie in the slot. More skilled than most, so can score when pressed for time and space.
But so can most skilled small players. Brings nothing but sniping and puck handling ability. Which we can get from young AHL studs for less than 1 million/year on short contracts.
He is a turnover danger everywhere else.

If Holland followed this logic a year or two ago Tatar would be in Edmonton, and you'd have your 6th round pick and Pulkkinen would be in Tatar's spot in the top six, who at the time was considered a sure thing in the NHL based on how he was destroying the AHL. In other words, you would have traded our second highest goal scorer away for beans and replaced him in the lineup with someone who can't even currently crack it.
