Taking a too cautious approach here by the Wings.  Attack the net, getns.

All that pressure from a bad play by Abs throwing the puck towards his bench with everyone changing.  Gotta be smarter than that.

Apparently the Wings D thinks Conklin needs some extra work.  Need to step it up a bit here.

Jeebus, 2 on 4, one of those 2 being Franzen back defensively. Scary scary.

Fils with a giveaway in the offensive zone and then he fights for it back.

Good player, I heard, he is.

At least he might motivate them… you know “Play well or I’ll pick you off”.  Wait… you didn’t mean it that way… my bad.
