How To Win A Game

Paul here for IwoCPO.

How this sound, instead of playing down 0-2, how about the Wings get a lead for a change?

Power play you say, I’d be happy with one pp goal and no shorties tonight.

Initiate some hitting, don’t wait to be hit.  Wings may be surprised to get a few turnovers from those hits.

Stop the cross-ice passes in the offensive zone, sure they look goo when they work, but far too often, the opposing team is prepared for that pass.

When bringing the puck into the offensive zone, how about trying to continue to skate instead of stopping at the half boards, a few strides in the zone.

Remember Detroit fans are watching at home, don’t make us go to bed at 11:30pm tonight, we want to stay up and watch a complete game.

When all else fails, depend on a parrot.

It’s a Live Blog bit****.

Figures, I thought rock bottom was yesterday.  Sad thing is, this may not be it either.

Rock bottom will be a 1st round matchup against the nucks

Optimist.  There’s still a chance of missing the playoffs.

Yes, but this would require a GM who is not complacent.

Gotta love Zetterberg’s postgame quote:

“I think, overall, today we did a better game than we did in L.A.,” Henrik Zetterberg said.

Wow.  Really?  They carved your asses up and served ‘em to you on a plate, and your point is?

Complacency.

So is the supposition that the Wings had tuned the coach out when they had the best record in the league after 61 games, or only during the last 10 games when they’ve been missing the forward voted best in the league in 6 categories by his peers, the league’s best defenseman, the league leading goaltender in wins, and as many as 7 starters out at the same time?  Cuz, that really doesn’t sound like tuning coaches out. The same stance was attempted when the Wings were 5-5-1 too, but quickly disappeared.

This didn’t feel like a quicksand game to anybody else?
