WE WON !!!!!!!

I never thought it felt so good !!

A lot more organize tonight, more intense..except big Mo who is still floating around, counting money of his brand new contract.

Fabbri’s line was the best, Zadina can’t score yet but can make plays when it matters. Againe he is improving, stronger on the puck, plays a better overall game..

Staal still slow but strong on the puck and doesn’t turn the puck over that easy. Not like Hronek did at the end on the empty net goal when he cleared the puck right in front of our net..thank God it went through…

Overall the newbies were better ..Staal, Stetcher, Namesnitkov all look a lot better..

And Bernier played well but our defense was much better tonight so..it help !

A little note…Brome should have more offensive responsability. Good ol Blash is trying to turn him into a defense specialist..

A my first star of the night is…. LIL BERT !!! I wish Big MO would be as intense as Lil Bert is…

So we are 1-1 ..let’s make it 2-1 in monday at NOON !

Very nice game by the Wings.

This game is not won without Zadina. I know a few here chastised him last game but I thought he had a pretty good game then. Some very good stick checks and steals and tonight he continued and had better line mates to capitalize.

Stecher and Merrill look very good again. My biggest bitch was Mantha. Man, he looks like he is collecting a paycheck half the time. He did some good things, then he looked stoned and disengaged.

Also, I think hats need to go off to Blashill and coaches. They got these guys playing physical and changed up the defensive pattern often. I saw a 2-1-2 most of the night then at times 2-2-1

Bert is game on almost every game. Man, he is inspiring. Larkin looked much better but he keeps forcing shit in the O Zone and keeps getting burned. Bad habits.

Awesome Win! Let’s Go Wings!!!

When he was playing in the world juniors the year he was by the Wings, I had nearly identical gripes with him.  And then I turn around at the stats and he played 30 or some odd minutes that game.

If we’re looking at another Not Hossa, I hope he proves us wrong.

I have to agree. Zadina’s passes to Bobby Ryan, and then later Fabbri were right on the tape, then bam! into the back of the net. Very nice work indeed.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

I noticed Stetcher tonight a couple times which is great. He made some nice plays.

I have to give Blash some credit tonight also he seemed to have the guys ready to play tonight.

Hopefully they build on this and keep improving.

I missed the blog, but managed to catch the game anyway.

The way we played tonight was like watching a completely different team. I hope this is the team that showed up more often this season.
