1. They are getting tons of chances. They will go in. Early in this season they weren't the chances.
2. The defense is playing very well. All 6, even though there have been mistakes. Mistakes are going to happen it's you react afterwards.
3. They have beat 3 hot goalies in last 3 games. That must mean our goaltending is hotter then theirs.
4. Bertuzzi is just simply flying. He looks 10 years younger. His goals will come. He's very hard to knock off of the puck. 5. With Helm and Draper we still have probably the fastest two guys around.
6. Lidstrom. Enough said.
Eaves is pretty quick too.
Agree with #4. Impressed with Bert, people might get on his case about not scoring but he's getting so many quality chances and you know a player like him will capitalise shortly.
I've just watch the game.
The goal Osgood allowed was soft. The goal was a bit unfortunate as Ericsson fell what probably distracked Osgood. It was not well placed shot it just went through his legs. He and Nabokov made a lot of saves, but a very few of them were really tough ones.
I think the Wings vastly outplayed the Sharks and deserved to win.
Datsyuk has to shoot more. Bertuzzi will start to score, he is getting chances.
Stuart had a strong game as well.
Now it remains to stay focused as the Wings will meet a very weak team the Leafs and it should be an easy win.
I feel the problem with Bertuzzi is he is thinking to much. Their are so many chances where he should just take a rocket shot at the goalie and takes his time to do something fancy. He shot also seems pretty weak. That being said he is hustling and creating many chances but needs to work on knowing where his teammates are so he doesn't chip it to noone in the offensive zone but that will come with time.
