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.

No worries, you’re in Austria and you still speak English better than most of the Michiganders on here.

That PP wasn’t as good as it might have looked.

Too slow to take open ice…gotta move around more still.

Heh. We should just keep taking the puck out and coming in on the rush on the PP instead of trying to set up.

Zetterberg’s 700th career point? Sole possession of 2nd place for points this season? Cool.

Henrik Zetterberg, ninth player ever to score 700 points as a Red Wing.

Beginning with this game and thanks to early starts and holidays I am going to be able to watch four consecutive games in their entirety.  Unreal.

Not to be a dick, but more than ten times during this game did I consider turning it off and going back to work even though it’s the weekend.

at least two additional points in the bank and no injuries. kudos to the sabres for playing clean considering they have every reason to be frustrated.

I feel pretty ho-hum about this win.

Probably need a few more before I can feel excitement again. Know what I mean?
