Misconduct

Postgame: Red Wings @ Islanders - 11/16

No game recap from me tonight, I'm tired of talking about shootout losses. A couple quick notes though:

1 - Detroit's second line is finally scoring. Funny, since it's not the second line they started the season with. Both Weiss and Alfredsson are out and suddenly Franzen is playing well. Have to wonder if it's just that he woke up or if there's a chemistry issue.

2 - Glendening has been solid in all of his call-ups but I'm very curious as to why a center got the nod when a winger was hurt. What's it going to take for Tomas Jurco to get a look at the NHL level?

3 - The Red Wings didn't deserve to win this one. Would have been absolute robbery to have gotten two points.

4 - As I Tweeted, the Wings have one shootout goal on twelve shots this season. That's the worst shootout shooting percentage of teams that have at least one goal.

5 - I'm not disappointed that there's a couple days until the next game.

Helm just killed Nabokov.

When you allow a goal to Helm you have to exit the game.

But, seriously, what took Franzen so long?

It's okay, now the Wings don't have a lead to blow in the third.

Isles' forecheck up a goal is better than Wings' forecheck down a goal.

So the team that scores last in regulation in a Red Wings' game wins, right?

Refs can't count or properly tell what's a hook.

Automatic penalty? No call. Judgement call? Goddamned right we're calling it.

Daniels emphatically says "That's offside." Like he's yelling it at the refs to make sure they get the call right.

Lets see if the shooters can be a bit more creative than last night.

Zetterberg hasn't gotten any better at the shootout I see.

Well, for once the shootout got it right, the Wings sure as hell didn't deserve to win this game.
