Misconduct

Red Wings - Blues Game Thoughts

Game recaps can be found elsewhere for this one. While I like to do mine - whether in blog or article form - I just don't have the motivation tonight. Instead, some random thoughts.

Since donning the full facial shield, Dallas Drake has been invisible. I wonder if he shouldn't take the rest of his recuperation period off. He's not happy with the shield and he's not playing well with it, just step away and let Downey take his spot until Drake can play the way he wants to play.

Hasek could have had the last three St. Louis goals. Babcock said after the game that pulling him was about the team, not about the goalie, but I'm not sure how much I believe that. I firmly believe there's a goalie contoversy brewing.

I still only saw one of the calls that gave the Blues their five-on-three. Thanks, Versus, for stupid on-bench interviews where the coaches never say anything insightful. Much better use of time than for replays that could allow people to better understand the game.

I'm sure I could think of more, but it's late and I just don't care enough about the game to keep looking. Sorry.

Bruce MacLeod blogs that Mikael Samuelsson will be out of the lineup tonight. His wife gave birth to their daughter just after midnight and he's gone home to be with them.

MacLeod says that there's no word on who will take his spot in the lineup but I would guess Matt Ellis. Having both Downey and Drake in seems like overkill.

Bring on the Blues! Gotta go to Buffalo Wild Wings tonight to watch the game because we don't get VERSUS on basic cables here in the dorms. Expecting a big game from Hank and Pav.

MacLeod just posted that Lilja will be a healthy scratch tonight. Meech is in.

Cleary makes Manny look like... Manny. And the Blues are p*ssed.

k, well the local buffalo wild wings was only showing the m.s.u. basketball game, so im stuck listening to the game online. How did Datsyuk score?

Hooray for the Lansing area, where no one cares about hockey.

I want to know what both of the calls were that gave StL a five-on-three. I saw one.

Datsyuk just threw it on net from the blue line and the bouncing puck got past Manny.

Catmandu says that Hasek should have had that second one and I agree.

hmmmm detroit always manages to blow 2 goal leads, but can never comeback from being down by 2... chicago.

In comes Osgood after Hasek lets in another.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/13/2007 at 9:02 PM

 

wow, hasek, 4 goals on 12 shots. Detroit needs a goal early in the 3rd, not 15 mins in like they did against chicago

They're not calling anything away from the puck. I've been trying to figure out why this game looks so different and I think that's it.

The Blues "haven't committed a penalty" in over 30 minutes.

Still alive, bitches!

Damnit! Not enough.

Im not even sure I want to do a recap for this game, but at least I got to see Versus bonus coverage of the Leafs getting absolutely burned in OT.

Hmm, another 2 goal lead blown. Oh well, I can stay happy with Valtteri's assist & goal. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" />And the fact Montreal won.

Missed it tonight. Didn't realize it was broadcast on Versus. Checked FSN, and when I didn't see it, I thought I had the wrong nite, so didn't check any further. Oh well, apparently didn't miss much.

Ehh, as much as I agree, I also disagree.<img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" /> That was a pretty sweet goal on Pavel Datsyuk's part. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" /> At least, I don't think I've seen anything like that in my year of hockey. It kept me entertained at most times too, since some of their games lately have just been like....ok, when does the action start. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" /> But a loss is still a loss.

Late post on this one, all I can say is I am glad that I had to work and missed out.
