Postgame: Ducks @ Red Wings - 2/15

Two thoughts following tonight's 5-2 loss to the Ducks tonight...

#1 - The Ian White broken stick giveaway that turned into the Ducks' second goal really does exemplify the Wings' season to this point. Seems like things are under control, then some crazy thing you couldn't have planned for comes up and everything falls apart with no one able to pull it all back together.

#2 - If that play didn't exemplify the season, the game-winning goal would. Great tip by Cogliano, for sure, but that pass never should have gotten to him. Kronwall has to take away that passing lane, even if just by lying down. Brutal defensive play; an inability to do the simple thing that ended up burning them.

That's all I've got.

So what's the injured return look like? Who's out for how long?

Think that means Bert is out at least ten days, retroactive to the last game he played. So not much longer but they don't think he's getting better right now. Lots of wait and see.

Missed the first but saw that Datsyuk was out via the NHLN ticker. Awesome.

I guess the one good thing about this is that a lot of young guys are getting ice time.

Proving they're ready. As I said on Twitter, I'd love to see Fil up on the top line and the Griffins line put together as the second line right now. No need to have Cleary and Abdelkader playing in the top six right now.

Kronwall could have cut off that pass so easily. Really p*sses me off.
