Misconduct

Red Wings - Blues Postgame Thoughts

Who needs good defense when you've got such a high-powered offense?

Oh, yeah, that's right. You still have to outscore the other team.

What we had here was another game where the Red Wings had defensive lapses where someone didn't cover their guy and it led to goals. It's like the team has forgotten how to play their own brand of hockey.

I don't fault Ty Conklin (aside from on the goal where he went wandering), just as I don't fault Chris Osgood (mostly).

I still believe in the magical switch the Wings can flip to be better for the playoffs but this is frustrating as hell to watch right now.

Tonight's game kind of snuck up on me. Two wholly-depressing losses in a row followed by a bunch of time off usually means two losses to end the playoffs and then an offseason.


Did I read that wrong or when did the playoffs start? :xI hope this goes better then the past week, which was terrible. Maybe it was the Wings' sort of April Fool's joke.Powerplay for the Wings!

Nice move by Kronner. Can't expect him to score on those, though.

I hate to say it, but that was pretty boring |:

Yeah, I know I'm exhausted to start with but this game is putting me to sleep.

I've got a 10:15 soccer game, Wings better get in gear and wrap this sh*t up before I have to leave.

Blown defensive coverage. Ugh.

Not really the start anyone wanted |:

but considering the game is about halfway over, I guess it's not really the start.

Another wide open guy. Maybe I'll turn this off and take a nap.

Wooo, Datsyuk! |: 2 - 1.

Feeling slightly less pessimistic.

Nice, nice tip. At full speed, that didn't seem intentional.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 4/2/2009 at 8:57 PM

 

Kronwall and Stuart were out there for a second on the PP. Odd.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 4/2/2009 at 9:00 PM

 

Man, I sure did hate the April in the D song, but I don't think this one is much better |:

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 4/2/2009 at 9:15 PM

 

Yes! Lidstrom makes the game more worthwile!

Tied at 2.

>:|

So much for that. Backes with the hat trick. Jerk.

I come back late from intermission and miss two goals. Jesus.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 4/2/2009 at 9:27 PM

 

I like Andy McDonald but not when he scores against the Wings.

SOMEONE GO BREAK BACKES' LEGS RIGHT NOW. Bleh.

Holy living f*ck, that was nice.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 4/2/2009 at 9:32 PM

 

This game is getting somewhat ridiculous...and exciting!

Haha, they picked up the pace and you probably have to leave soon, Yzer! P: That really blows.

Yeah, I'll deal. May I have a better night than Conklin, I'm putting my unbeaten record on the line.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 4/2/2009 at 9:41 PM

 

Alright, I'm out. Go Wings, Go FC TSC.

Bonne chance!Backes got another goal, darn!

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 4/2/2009 at 9:56 PM

 

Blues win 5-4.

Oh well, at least the Wings had a chance tonight.
