Getting Better

Some nights these Wings make any sane person want to pull their hair out. It's always with aboot four minutes left in the third. The mad scramble, the defensive lapses. That has to change, and, it will.
The Wings have been slowly getting better, which makes for high hopes every, single, game.

With Datsyuk back and Richards too, there is more focus. More leadership for our youngsters. Every game since their return the Wings are improving, gaining confidence. Now, if they could just go on a goal scoring binge...............

It's a Sunday afternoon Live Blog. Bitches!

We owned the perimeter on that pp but the middle,not so much.

That perimeter is some prime passing real estate.

3 defending Pavel Datsyuk is a mismatch in favor of Datsyuk.

Tatar needs to stop making moves at the blue line and get in the o-zone.

Nice to see that after showing some life towards the end of the first period the Wings have gone back to sleep.  sick

Jurco not impressing so far, but to be fair, no one else on the Wings is either.

I don’t know what the exact numbers are, but the Wings have to have lost 80% of face offs so far.
