Two Word - Win Again

Paul here for Bill...

Now that the Nyquist fiasco is over with, we don't have to worry about any more roster moves until DeKeyser returns or someone else gets hurt.

So we will deal with that when the time comes, meanwhile, how does 2 wins in a row sound?

Now is the time for the Wings to put a nice winning streak together and move on up in the Eastern Conference standings.

On a positive note, the line of Franzen, Nyquist and Helm has some promise and I believe it all depends on what type of "Mule" shows up.

On the negative side, can we say Dan Cleary?

Babcock will start the game again with Cleary, Datsyuk and Bertuzzi but I wonder how long Cleary will remain with that line until we see someone like Tatar moving up?

Play a full game boys and win, again.

It's a live blog bitches!

I’d rather have Jack Klugman playing defense than Kyle

God, it is unbelievable how slow this Red Wings team is. It’s weird to see.

Its the terrible passing slowing them down, not the foot speed

well, most of them anyway

No, it’s the foot speed too. Just no skaters on this team.

They looked a lot faster when they had Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Stuart, running the backend. None of whom were fast skaters.

I hear what you’re saying, but this game they seem to have been moving quite quickly. Definitely the passing and giveaways tonight.

They’re too afraid of giving the puck away on these 5 on 3s. A lot of the time I think it’s even a problem on the 5 on 4s.

Force it in!

all these point shots. Howabout some high slot or wide deflections?

Nyquist botched at least two sequences with bobbles / bad puck handling.

I can’t tell on my feed, but is the ice bad tonight?

Totally serious. Things just look slowed down for them. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me.

That Chase to the puck in the corner just prior to the penalty call was a good example.

Every goddamn thing about this game is frustrating me now. Every possible thing is going wrong, even the net coming off at the worst time.

Remember the days when 5 on 3s were always so exciting because you just KNEW there was more than likely going to be a Wings goal?

Now….it’s just disappointment in waiting.

If this is McLean’s idea of how to go after the Wings, shame on him.  But more shame on the blind zebras.

Hell I’d rather go back to the days of the NHL/NBA referee exchange program after the lockout.  At least the players were hesitant to goon it up not knowing what rules had changed…

Kronwall gets a penalty for defending himself….

Franzen gets his knee whacked from behind and it’s fine?

Are you kidding me Kronwall? Walk away from that stupid shit!

I’m almost out of words for this game. Just like Kindl this season, no one really grabbed the bull by the horns tonight. Everything is too out of control. Too many penalties, players putting themselves in bad positions…
