Boudreau Stresses Detroit Is A Good Team

from Lis Dillman of the LA Times,

Boudreau addressed several topics in a media session here after the team arrived in Detroit: the slow starts in each period by the Ducks in Game 2 and allowing three power-play goals in the 5-4 overtime defeat.

"The Wings are a good team," he said. "We're not playing the Florida Panthers here. They're going to make you make mistakes and that's gonna happen."

Said Ducks center Saku Koivu: "You play every second day and have a travel day, so there's not a lot of time to really think about why it happened or what happened. You have to move on.

"You can't get, after a big win, emotionally too high. And same thing with a tough loss last night, you can't dwell on it too long."

more on the Ducks including Hiller will start again...

Except that, you know, they aren’t actually a good team.  The standings and their performance indicate pretty clearly that the Wings are mediocre.

Oh, Bruce. You damn us with faint praise.

Well, the standing may have more to do with the Wings losing more man games to injuries this season than any other team.

But the “mediocre” part has some validity to it. It just depends on the game. The last four games of the season? Way above mediocre. The first game of the playoffs and the last 10 minutes of regulation in game 2? All too mediocre. Tonight? Who knows.

It’s what makes the Wings so hard to watch this year.
