Quick Recap- Wings/Panthers

How about a goal from Patrik Nemeth?  How about a goal from Mathias Brome?  Here at the KK/A2Y Casino, we would have taken 500/1 odds of those two scoring tonight.

Jonathan Bernier was great Danny DeKeyser was rusty but spotted well throughout the game.

Florida really came on strong midway through the third period but coud not get the equalizer, Detroit wins 2-1.

Detroit goals and a questionable hit on Zadina by Gudas are below.

Better effort mostly all around.  Also got some luck their way.

Early in the game was not great, but as it went on they seemed to fall into a groove a bit more.  Defensively they also did a better job filling shooting lanes and hounding the puck.

Wasn’t great, wasn’t pretty either, but…. they got a much better result, even if they’d given up a late goal for a tie or even lost.

if Greiss is in goal..do we win this one ?

humm ?

I don’t think so.

I wonder if we should be “proud” of our game. We had a good stretch of dominance in the second but outside of that we were chasing the Panthers..all over the place. Larks was all over the ice..Helm had too much icetime same for Nielsen, Brome didnt have enough icetime.

I sure love to know what Helm is good for. Late in the game to watch him trying and trying to get the puck out..just can’t control anything..hilarious.

Bernier was amazing…Dk look better..maybe the scare of the waiver did something to him…dunno

Is Zadina injured ? Didnt see much of him late in the game..

I thought Merill played his best game as a Wings.

Anyway fun win…but let’s not get carried away ...they still outworked us in a good part of the game..but this time it wasn’t that obvious.
