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 wonder how Weiss feels, Helm missed much more time due injury, isn’t supposing to be a top 6 player but compared to himself, he plays as one…

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.

Terminal cancer makes this bitchy bullshit so worthless and petty. Thanks for some much needed perspective.

Stopped him.  But wow, crazy soft call. If it was a wing, he could have been tackled and there is no guarantee there would even be a penalty.

Or work on your one timer. But, yeah, you can’t receive the puck. Stop. Then wind up. Then shoot.

Wings need a significant change. With Quick out, perhaps we could temp LA with Mrazek + Sproul for Voynov.

Normally I’d hate me some Quincey, but he barely had the stick between the legs and Leino clamped down as hard as he could and wouldn’t let go of Quincey’s stick trying to make it look like a penalty that it really wasn’t (in my opinion).
