Misconduct

Postgame: Red Wings @ Wild - 3/22

Alright, quick postgame notes on today's 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild...

The Good
Two points are huge. A regulation win is huge. Really everything else doesn't matter at this point.

That said, Gustav Nyquist growing his legend is a fun story. Leading the NHL in scoring since mid-January and another game-winner today. This is the guy who proves the flaw in "The Red Wings Way." He should have been on the team to start the season.

Brendan Smith had possibly the best game of his career and not just because of his goal.

The Bad
At different points it looked like Niklas Kronwall and Kyle Quincey could be out of the game. Awesome that they weren't but if they're playing hurt, that's a big deal. Especially Kronwall, as there's no way he should be playing with a head injury. Doubly because Kronwall is probably the second-most important player on the team right now, losing him would be a massive blow.

The Ugly
God, that called-back goal was awful. Video is going up on the site shortly.

Kronwall injury is probably the second-worst thing that could happen to Detroit at this point. Awesome.

I'm with Mickey on this one. Prosser acting tough after the whistle and Tatar cracks him one, he deserved it.

The joke is that there's no way Prosser gets called there if Tatar hadn't retaliated.

Smith thinking he's a forward again and it pays off.

So Ryan Suter's 2012 free agent contract finally pays off for Detroit?

Part of me celebrates Kronwall's return and part of me is terrified he's out there hurt.

Oh, I missed Helm.

This Nyquist kid is pretty good.

The only comment I have other than the important two points was the goal that was called back. From a statistics standpoint, is there another team in the NHL that has had more disallowed goals over the past five seasons as the Wings? On average, 50 percent are good goals yet there is always some question about goaltender interference. This is why the coaches should have the same abilities as the guys in the NFL... Thank god that was not the deciding factor in the game.

Is Kronner in the line-up?
