Postgame Thoughts: Red Wings @ Sharks - Game Two

I started to write a long post about the Red Wings only putting in five minutes of effort and how it reminded me of Game Seven of the 2009 Finals and how much that pissed me off. Then I realized that I was probably putting more effort into writing that up than the team actually gave in the game itself. To hell with that.

At the start of Game One and the end of Game Two, this team showed that they can be better than the San Jose Sharks. The problem is that in between those times, they've played like they haven't cared to.

If today's game were a home game, the Wings would have deserved to get booed off the ice. Their lack of effort should offend fans and they deserve to lose this series if they don't turn it around.

I firmly believe they can turn it around. This isn't over by a long shot. They're just going to have to decide which way they want to play.

No lineup change, Draper, Modano and Kindl are the scratches.

Beautiful day to be inside watching hockey. Have I mentioned that I hate afternoon games yet?

Oh, Sharks PPG. What a surprise that the PK fails again. Though it was looking good for awhile there.

They're making us look like what we make other teams look like.... This is not us. We're done.

Ugly period but plenty of time left.

I think Jimmy just made a great save but they won't show the replay.

Datsyuk for Vezina. Wow.

Have the Wings won a battle along the boards at all today?

One good shift. Glad to see the Wings can still turn it on, they just have to actually do it.

Holy hell, not a good start.

You are f*cking kidding me. After all that...

If we don't hit another level, the octopus could come to have another meaning altogether....I do not mean to be negative....

That was a bullsh*t call, in my opinion....

This had been a let down. Completely and totally unmatched. I don't have an answer and I think it's only a matter of time for golf.

Still alive. Fantastic shot by Zata.

Five minutes isn't enough. I'll expand on that later.

Better effort...need some luck.

Posted by OldBroad on 5/1/2011 at 6:08 PM

 

I did say they (sharks) are better at basically every position, but i didnt think the wings would be dominated like this hahah. Complete garbage, and oh yea, we were the only team not to make a deadline deal. Old and Overrated! Told ya so?

It's not like the Wings are getting blown off the ice...they have their chances...just not able to finish, and maybe that's the talent of the other team...maybe it's puck luck. Howard has NOT disappointed. Let's see what the third game brings before we write them off completely.

They are simply outmatched at every position. This series is over. Its the Sharks best chance. Wings personel is just overly passive and aged. They may have skill but the other team is bigger, faster, stronger and younger. There was times in the Coyotes series where they looked like they were just waiting for the other team to do something it was really odd. I would really love this team to be blown up after this season because i'm tired of seeing a passive team playing hockey... Keep the core, add young fast hard hitting players instead of the same "I'm going to hesitate in the slot and pass it" players..

Wings are prime for picking. San Jose has the CONFIDENCE and believe they can beat the Wings any game. At least get one game wings, please?
