A Back To Back-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack

Back to back, and on a major network usually means TRAP for these Wings. Plus the added dimension of facing our former Coach who knows a thing or two aboot his former players is going to pose one of the bigger challenges the Wings will face this Season.

They better be prepared to out work, out muscle, and most importantly, out score the Leafs by as many goals as possible.

For what it's worth, the 19 will be ecstatic as long as the Wings can manage to score just one goal more than our opposition by the time the final buzzer rings.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

A Different Kind Of Game Wrap Up

from Rick Carpiniello of Rangers Report,

- And some calls. I mean, Justin Abdelkader took the mother of all stupid, needless, jackwagon penalties when he slew-footed Lundqvist with 5:42 left in the third period, tied 1-1. Not only was it a needless and brain-less play, but the Rangers had two players out of gas at the end of a long shift in their own end, including Dan Girardi, whose stick was on his knees as he hunched over. Just the stoppage was a blessing for the Rangers, never mind the penalty.

- Anyway, the Rangers go into Detroit and the Red Wings – who don’t wear their alternate jerseys for Original Six matchups, thank God – are pretty much all over them in the first.

- Meanwhile, Mrazek – under pressure during an early Rangers power play — got clubbed by Nash, who was shoved into him. Mrazek went down, stayed down. So I guess the Saturday Rulebook means the goalie can get a stoppage when he’s hurting. Ten days ago, Lundqvist didn’t go down, asked for a whistle, didn’t get it, freaked out and tossed the net and drew a penalty in Pittsburgh. Today’s opponent, Marc-Andre Fleury, by the way, called Lundqvist’s actions “baby stuff.”

- I see Richards is now playing fourth-line wing. Sounds familiar. Time for another mutiny?

- The Niklas Kronwall knee injury means more minutes for Mike Green, which could be enough to keep Detroit out of the playoffs. Ooops. Sorry, I meant lower-body injury.

- The Rangers hacking up two points to Detroit must have really irked Mr. Snider and his fine organization, which is chasing the Wings, among others.

How Bad Do You Want It?

It does not matter what any other Team in the league does. Whether they win or lose, is not the Wing's problem.

All that matters right now is taking care of their own business.

Every single player and Coach in the Or-gan-I-zation has to ask themselves, "how bad do you want it?" It should be an easy question to answer.

The Team We Cheer For

For better or for worse the Detroit Red Wings are the Team we cheer for. That is what 19 of us are here for. It could go down to the wire, but, we are here to cheer the Team into the post season.

Expectations have certainly been brought down a few notches and some are doubting another run. That's fine just as long as we hang on to that glimmer of hope that the Wings will make this right. Get ready for some epic clenching.

Don’t Look Back

The one thing Red Wing's Fans are waiting for is some semblance of consistency. We are in the home stretch of the season, and there are 19 of us that have been more than patient. No one wants to see their Team back their way into the playoffs, but at this point we are willing to take anything we can. With less than twenty games left it's going to be a tough row to hoe, but hard work makes it all possible. It's time to tighten up every aspect of our game and move forward.

Don't look back. Just get into the post season and take it from there.
