Light That Fire

The road to making the playoffs is hard enough without having to carry the added weight of players that are not getting it done. All season long the Wings have had a problem with scoring.

Putting Pavs and Z back together is a move in the right direction, but, how do the Wings get more from our other lines? Someone needs to light a fire under these guys or whatever it takes to get them scoring again because too many players are simply not getting it done in all areas of their play. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

Something's gotta give, and soon. And yes, missing Kronner and E-52 is hurting the Wings big time. Mrazek can only do so much and he does it very well, but scoring goals is not in his job description.

Here's to hoping Blash has a couple of tricks and some kindling up his sleeve. Light that fire!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

It's a live blog. Bitches!

Good evening to all and thanks for hanging oot tonight. To start things off on the right foot I would like to announce the birth of my very own Euro-Twins.

The twin Grandsons, Lincoln James and Logan Michael arrived on Super Bowl Sunday. Two more little Wings fans into the fold. I was waiting for my Son, YYZerman to make the announcement, but he handed it over to me.  wink

Maybe because they insist on trying to make cute plays in the neutral zone instead of getting the puck deep?

Probably more scared of breaking Petr’s confidence with another loss.

A one goal, low scoring loss is one thing

an .800 save percentage, 6 goal route is another

Im sure even that win in Boston didnt make him feel real good about his game.
