Misconduct

Wings Woes Continue

This late, I'm not even sure what to say about Detroit's loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

As I said in the forums, I hate staying up late for a West Coast game only to have the Wings seemingly go to sleep early. Unfotunately, that happened again tonight.

After getting the early lead, it didn't exactly look like the Wings were going to quit, but once again they didn't get the breaks they needed while their opponents did.

The Kings got on the board with a goal that never should have happened. Vishnevski carries the puck the length of the ice, pushes past Kronwall, and bounces the puck in off of Osgood.

Most of the time something happens in that sequence to stop the goal. He gets stopped by Kronwall, or Osgood doesn't give him a gap, or he doesn't get the bounce off of Osgood's padding. None of those came through for the Wings.

The game-winning goal was an attempted pass tipped into the Detroit net by defenseman Danny Markov. How often do we see the Wings score into their own goal? Hardly ever, but it happened tonight.

Detroit put forth an effort that would win on some nights but on nights when all the bounces are going the other way, they have to do more. They didn't and they got the loss.

Hopefully the loss against the sharks is in our rearview mirror, too bad I have to leave for Rhode Island early in the morning otherwise I would be behind the penalty box again!!! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":notworthy:" border="0" alt="notworthy.gif" />

And the Wings open up the scoring in under three! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":notworthy:" border="0" alt="notworthy.gif" />

So far we are looking ok, have missed out on some really good scoring opportunities

So far, they're holding out longer than they did in San Jose <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/notworthy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":notworthy:" border="0" alt="notworthy.gif" />Wings need to bury some of those chances. Could come back to bite them in the ass later. Playing fairly well defensively though.

Ugh. Great pressure by the Wings but the Kings are the ones to get the goal out of it. Bad break, Ozzie came off the post but it still needed just the right bounce to get through.

goallllllllllllll

Well, they fell to sh*t pretty quick there. Anyone want to play defense?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/6/2007 at 11:49 PM

 

No, they all want to be forwards today.

We better not blow this! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":notworthy:" border="0" alt="notworthy.gif" />

Every time I hear Kronwall's name, the Wings are about to score, but then a goal is scored 20 seconds later. I know he is/will be a good scoring defenseman, but it may be hurting them. He is leading the team in shots so far.

Things are not looking good right now, we need to be playing the body!

HA! I like that line.They're trying too hard. Forcing passes and all that. We'll see if they snap out of it.

He wants to be like Schneids and Lidas!

Posted by SYfanSD on 1/7/2007 at 12:17 AM

 

Okay, what the f*ck? Ozzie gets steamrolled and no call!? Meanwhile, Homer looks wrong at a goalie and he's off for two.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/7/2007 at 12:38 AM

 

f*ck, way to go, Danny.

I f*cking hate staying up for games that the Wings don't stay up for.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 1/7/2007 at 12:58 AM

 

The game was killed by poor reffing in the end. The steam roll on Ozzie started it, but the worst was a no-call on a hook on WIlliams getting in the zone (the ref warned the player rather than calling it), then Kopitar draws an equal hook and the Wings get the penalty, kinda sucks

I can't believe we lost to the Kings! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":notworthy:" border="0" alt="notworthy.gif" /> <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" />
