Detroit...

I'm sittin' here watchin' the Det/Col game and can't help but think that IF the Oil make the playOffs we are frickin' going to be eatin' alive by their powerplay. I keep having these flashbacks of that game against them earlier in the year where they effortlessly popped like 6 or 7 seven goals on us (I don't remember exactly how many). Our D just won't be able to get it done IMO.

But then again maybe the Oil somehow play the majority of the series 5 on 5 and give themselves a chance to win a few games. It is nice that Det doesn't have their goalTending solidified because maybe that's how we get a leg up on 'em. Maybe, just maybe this team could will a few goals with their tremendous work ethic. Then again this team doesn't seem capable of holding a lead when they really gotta and that leads us back to our D.

Ah who am I kidding, if this team makes the playOffs all logic is thrown out the window and anything can frickin' happen. St. Louis will be a very telling game IMO.

Or... maybe we can get 7th and play San Jose. That would be a series we would have a good chance of winning (not that playing Detroit would be impossible, but SJ just isn't the same).

I too think that Detroit's powerplay would absolutely slaughter us.. I think we would outplay them 5on5 but their special teams are top notch.

5x5 is our bread and butter this season. OUr PK and PP have gotten better but we would still get eaten alive in a special teams battle. The key is to stay our of the box. That being said we have been playing some games against some of the leagues best recently and have been looking good in comparison.

I guess we'll just have to see what happens WHEN we make the playoffs.

It's a whole new season then

Honestly, I don't think we can match up 5 on 5 either. That defense is rock solid. Granted, Colorado is slumping but Detroit forced the Avs into only 5 shots in the 3rd period. The Avs got manhandled today.

that sounds eerily similar to what happened here. Think the Avs are trying to let him feel at home
