Misconduct

Red Wings - Predators: What Just Happened?

This loss is a little hard for me to explain because it feels like a typical Nashville win. Two power play goals and two goals off of lucky breaks / broken plays.

It feels like the Predators never had any pressure on the Wings all game. Solid defense, of course, and they were playing defensively as the momentum shifted.

Nashville seemed content to sit back and wait for a break to go their way, and then one did when Jonathan Ericsson ran into Tomas Kopecky and lost the puck. It's like if I were to sit here at my computer saying "I'm gonna stay here until a bag of cash falls into my lap" and then it works.

By all accounts, the Red Wings should have won Sunday afternoon. But they didn't. Them's the breaks, I guess. The painful, ridiculous, annoying breaks.

If you want good news to take out of it, at least Detroit showed up to this one, unlike Friday night. So while it may be two losses in a row, they're two drastically different losses.

Well that was quick. I thought for a second Ozzie had gotten his pad over. Ugh.

Zetterberg doesn't want to lose this one, shorthanded goal.

Ozzie with two huge stops, very nice.

Knew that was gonna be called back. Ugh.

And Ken and Mickey are ripping into the ref for not explaining why because the fans in the arena don't know. Nice.

Thank god I'm back in time for the game. I missed the 1st period helping my friend find a prom dress. Not fun! ):

I did see the goal called back, though. Which I agree with.

Yes it was. Tech guys not having a good day, combined with the silent interview in the first intermission.

That site has replaced justin.tv as the best place for sports streams, it seems.

Not at all, I was dragged in kick & screaming. I go to the mall about once a year, and she's already broken that record by forcing me to go twice :| It's a terrible place.That would've been a cool breakaway if Weber hadn't taken it back.

Nice, making 'em pay on the five-on-three. Sammy finds the net for once.

Does this game seem really slow to anyone else?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/29/2009 at 7:09 PM

 

Tied up 'cause Kopy can't get out of the damned way.

Wow, a crappy play followed with the worst commercial in the world. Just peachy.

Yeah, I've got nothing other than an act of God."And the Lord sayeth, 'f*ck the Red Wings.' And the Red Wings were f*cked."Yes, I'm going to hell.

FRANZENSTEIN!!!!!!!!!!

Johan Motherf*cking Franzen! Tied up, you inbred bastards!

You have got to be kidding me. I'm going back to making my layout, again.

Bullsh*t they didn't call that faceoff violation.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/29/2009 at 7:40 PM

 

What the hell is this? Two things not called? |:

We've got some refs really slacking.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 3/29/2009 at 7:42 PM

 

Wow, the refs even f*ck up in Detroit's favor. What a clusterf*ck.

I thought the NHL had given them a cease and desist order a couple of months ago. Hmm.Anyway, only watched bits and pieces of the game, so I can't really comment.

Diego Maradona plays for the Preds now?Sorry, it's just illegal for the words "hand of god" to be said without him being mentioned./reference nobody here will get.

I totally get it. Did he ever admit to that?And actually I purposely lowercased "hand of god" to differentiate between me bitching and that play.

Okay,cool, well he sort of did. That game even has its own wiki article: http://en.wikipedia...._England_(1986) you can check for yourself. Sorry for the total derail, South Africa 2010, there will be a thread.

Can someone explain to me what is happening to our favorite team? Is there kryptonite somewhere in the Joe or what?! Osgood? Chelios? Babcock? What is going on?! (Sorry, I look to the Wings for escape from the woes of the world, and they are just NOT delivering these days!wink.png Go, Spartans! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />
