Misconduct

Penalty Killed

The Detroit News has a recap of last night's mess in San Jose so I'm not going to bother with it today.

This marks two games - and two nights - in a row where the Wings have seemingly forgotten to show up.

It's easy to look at the scoresheet and say "Oh, San Jose scored all their goals on the power play so Detroit must have played will at even strength." For the most part, that's true. The problem is that they took half a game's worth of penalties, that leads to a lot of power play goals for the opponent.

The Red Wings played a horribly undiciplined game. They took bad penalties and then blew defensive assignments. That can't continue.

Just as I was about to say that the Wings were looking solid, the Sharks get a PP goal on a bit of a lucky bounce. Let's see if it can get evened up on the Detroit power play here.

Clear the front of the net, damnit!

Holy crap. I hope on his way off the ice, Osgood tells the rest of the team to go to hell.

You missed the important couple words before that. "I hope"Hung out to dry on the first two, the third he was screened on but could have gotten. No help at all.I'm debating turning it off right now, another night where it's not worth it to stay up late if the Wings aren't gonna come to play.

I hope they can get it together! I am thinking about turning it off as well

WTF? I thought the officials now had the ability to say that a player didn't intend to put it over the glass so it wasn't a penalty.

I think that one of the biggest gripes about the NHL this year is going to be the officiating. The last two games have been horrible for the Wings with penaltys. It's almost like the league is out to get them.

To be fair (me saying that? wow), the Wings haven't been all that disciplined in their play. I actually mentioned that in my blog post for today (which was short, because I wasn't going to put much effort in if the Wings weren't going to, either).

I am hoping this is just the early season blues. However looking at history, every great dynasty has fallen. Hopefully now is not our time

What we need is another March 26th, 1997 to get us going in the right direction. I figure Norton can lead the charge <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/cursing.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":cursing:" border="0" alt="cursing.gif" /> <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/cursing.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":cursing:" border="0" alt="cursing.gif" />
