What We Have Here Is Another Game The Wings Should Win

Yes it is me, Paul, in for Bill again today.

It has reached head-shaking territory for me.

No, I am not talking about the Detroit Lions, but instead the Detroit Red Wings.

Where do we go from here?  Until the numerous defensive lapses are corrected we will continue to have games like last night's loss to Ottawa.

Until the offense decides to go hard to the net, until the dmen stop shooting when there is no screen being created, this is what we get and honestly deserve.

Correct the mistakes boys, play like you want to win the whole game and see what happens.

It's a llive blog #*!ches.

I gotta say Kate, I don’t really understand your vendetta against Howard lately.  He was absolutely hung out to dry on that goal, and bit hard to boot.  Seems to me he is playing exactly as bad as the rest of the team.  He needs to be better, that goes without saying.  But so does the whole team! I don’t see how he is any different.

Argh. Got the Buffalo feed. Jenneret is a decent announcer though.
Helmer having a rough game early. Power play comming up.

Howard is not in goal. But for the record, I have never been a big fan of Howard.

Hah.  I have been dealing with signal issues, snow on my dish that I finally got knocked off, and hadn’t got to see that much yet.  I didn’t know who was in I guess.  But what I said about mistakes and what you said doesn’t just apply to this game, so I guess my Howard statement still makes sense.  I just want the whole team to stop losing, and I don’t care who steps up.

I get it. We’re all edgy because of this slump. We are not used to it and expect things to be resolved in a timely manner, only to be disappointed night after night.

Puck bouncing over many Wing sticks on rebounds. Keep up the pressure and the bounces will start working our way.

Losing is losing. No matter who is in net. I am not a big fan of Monster either.

If you want to be technical, Howard has lost 7.

On a lighter note. My mom called the other day and told me that her friend’s granddaughter has terminal cancer. Abby showed up at their door unplanned and stayed for awhile inviting her to an event that unfortunately she is too sick to attend. Kudos to whoever set up this visit from a class organization.
