I didn't get to watch all of the first two games but it seems like this game is par for the course so far when we are talking about defense.
Yep. So far the Wings D has allowed 36 SOG by St Louis, 33 by C-bus, and 32 by Dallas. Granted, the Wings were able to outshoot both the Jackets and the Stars, but those are still high SOG allowed #'s against average to possibly below average offenses (C-bus anyway). I'm not the first to say it, but what happens when Detroit plays the teams with elite offensive talent on multiple lines? Could be seeing 50+ shots allowed which is going to wear Jimmy out.

The offense needs to start sustaining pressure in the offensive zone, and the D better improve on clearing the puck out, or the long season will continue.
