Quick Recap- Detroit/Carolina

The Wings tried hard against one of the better NHL teams but as Carolina exhibited, talent usually rules.

Final score Carolina 3 Detroit 1

Since around 2pm today, stomach issue started and it continues now, so no post game media from me.  Hopefully get to it by the morning.

Team Stats

Detroit goal is below.

Veleno 18+ mins and 63% faceoffs

We are competitive against the best NHL teams without 3 top forwards and I do not care if the opponents take us for granted, it’s still impressive.

Under 20 shots is not a good effort, it’s playing to not lose.

Garbage game.

Veleno belongs on the team. No need for Flip and Weird Flip next season.

I agree but this is pretty much the same roster that put up 7 goals not to long ago.

How was it different from when we beat Carolina last?

I’ll give you a hint: Replace Adam Erne with Joe Veleno.

This game is what failing at “low event hockey” gets you.

This.

I guess you could call it a good effort but it was by no means impressive. Low event try not to get blown out vs playoff spot secured and know just how much effort needed to dust a bad roster. The Vrana goal was fun and i’m glad veleno is getting real time and not looking out of place. Not much else to pull out of this one.

Vrana goal was a beauty.  That was an example of him seeing a play and making a move on it - that’s something I never saw Mantha do once. 

Those two will continue to be compared to each other, and that is alright, but there is a subtle but noticeable difference in how they both play. 

Mantha reminds me of the kid in school who is naturally smart but is bored, so he doesn’t really try too hard.  He was the best of his class at every level and was able to coast through each grade.
For a change, now he’s finally at a high level and the students around him are as good as he is.  He needs to step up but years of slacking off engrained bad habits.

The Vrana goal was nice.  We are used to seeing a Detroit player just shoot the puck into the goalie, hoping for either a leaky goal or a rebound.

I watch a lot of hockey and when I see a guy score a goal like this, I wonder who on Detroit could do so.  Now we know.

Replace Adam Erne with Joe Veleno.

We lost because Veleno was playing instead of Erne (who did not play because of COVID protocols)? Just want to make sure I understood it correctly.

You got the faceoff number right but must be looking at Filppula’s TOI, Natural StatTrick and ESPN both have Joe down for 13:58 in TOI. Which is good, a whole second more than the Svetch, who had the least F TOI at 13:57

No, you asked what was supposed to happen with the roster iced; I showed the difference between the previous victory over Carolina and last night.

You draw you own conclusions.
