Misconduct

Postgame: Blue Jackets @ Red Wings - 3/26

I've got a migraine coming on so the postgame notes will be quick...

Easy to say this one was "only Columbus" but two points are two points, and some of the plays tonight were impressive against any NHL team. Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk each with nearly-blind passes leading to goals, for example.

On one of those, fantastic to see Gustav Nyquist get his first career goal. He's really finding his game in Detroit and clicks well with Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi. I'd kind of like to see him stay there as the Wings get healthy and see what could happen but I don't know if Johan Franzen works on the third line.

Ty Conklin didn't have to do a lot but looked pretty good, much better than he did in his first stint with the team this season.

Two more points in Columbus on Wednesday would be huge but the Blue Jackets are going to want to bounce back from this one.

I'm having an awful day so I'm posting the game thread early and not including any notes. Might be around during the game itself, though. 7:30 - FSD.

In the meantime, watch brawl videos. That's always fun.

No goals yet? What is this?

That's how the power play is supposed to work.

Not a bad first goal for Nyquist. Hell of a pass from Datsyuk.

Jesus... Another fantastic blind pass and some finish.

My god. Where's this offense been?

It's really sad he's getting pulled, 'cause it's not his fault no one's covering anyone.

Agreed, yet I feel sorry for them as they have been the whipping boy all season. I'll take it though, in light of our recent shortcomings, I'll take it.

I love the post...

It would appear that Lidstrom even makes perfect mistakes.

Toying with 'em.

If this was the Pens or the Preds I would be excited. This type of game is expected against a team like Colombus.

Expected but not happening, so it's good to see the Wings rolling when they should.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/26/2012 at 9:13 PM

 

Hope they're not using it all up tonight.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/26/2012 at 9:31 PM

 

Amen

Great effort by the Red Wings. Saw Columbus play three weeks ago. They have absolutely nothing going for them. Their veterans don't even want to be there anymore.
