E52 has had a good game so far, but WTF was he doing in front of the crease?

It is astounding how much worse the Wings look without Datsyuk in the lineup.

Kronwall just says “fuch you” to my fantasy team.

That’s okay ‘cause I was thinking it.

Wings seem like they’re getting shut out tonight.  No Pavel, no win.

Hope some of the Wings’ players were taking notes there.

Conklin was out of position on that goal.

Story of the night

Wings have 5 hits.  Lots of poking of sticks, no hitting bodies as the Isle skate the zone with impunity.

I agree Jeff, the Wings just aren’t aggressive or dangerous like they used to be, just lets the opponent team coast in to their zone, then let them go back and back-check. They are being under coached in my opinion.

JFC cannot compete with the Isle?

Is Nabokov auditioning for the Wings?

They won’t get up for games against teams from the East not named Pittsburgh.  They’re sleep walking through this and will use the lack of Datsyuk as an internal excuse.  They don’t give a shit.
