Seriously bro? They already clinched their playoff spot when they got blown out 10-3. Howard and Datsyuk out with injury as well. The Red Wings are allowed to take a game off; they earned it by clinching their playoff spot early. The Rangers, on the other hand, didn't EARN that luxury and have 5 goals in their last 5 games, so it's not just one game either. It would be 4 goals in the last 5 if not for that gimme goal here at the end, and we'd be on a 4 or 5 game losing streak right now if it weren't for Hank playing in beast mode the last few games.
Yes, absolutely seriously. You're making the SAME POINT I made before- the only reason this loss blows is because we're clinging to a PO spot. All teams lose to teams they should beat. "Taking a game off" is BS because the Wings got spanked, plain and simple. Im not saying they're not a better team, but this loss would not be nearly as much a pain if we were comfortably in the POs.
