You don't find it odd we allow an average of 24.2 shots against per game, but that game we allow 33? There's a reason and while some of it falls on the forwards who weren't backchecking very well in the first period, and a few real boneheaded passes by the D as well, Bernier's rebound control also factored into things quite a bit. The Red Wings aren't the Chicago Blackhawks, they aren't as good as we made them look that game, Bernier included.
So what you are saying is that the Red Wings played a real good game, shot the puck at Bernier 33 times, and let in only one fluke goal? And we won?

I am not going to nitpick the entire game with you. If that's your perception, that's your perception. Despite their lack of defense, Detroit still has plenty of talent. You act as though the game was completely in the Kings' hands, and Detroit was "allowed" to play well in our defensive zone. Please. Detroit had something to say too about the flow of the game.
