seriously though Klein, thats the play on film that you dive and stick check. The one you've probably seen 80 times before. It's not!! the one that you try to jump behind the streaking Bertuzzi, you're obviously outmatched skating since he just beat you to the puck!
What did everyone think of the Dumont, legwand, Jones line tonight. From what I saw they dominated the play almost every time they were on the ice. Jones seemed to be everywhere.
I completely agree, this these 3 were phenomenal together. And Jones was the exact player that won the spot last season and got a 2 year one way contract. But at the same time...I'm not ready to abandon whats got us this far because of 1 over time loss.
Edit: Not saying you want to change the lines, just adding my own thoughts to the end.
Im surprised no one has commented on the refs, we got called on ticky tack stuff and the Red Wings got away with plenty of holds, 2 high sticks and a blatent trip on Dumont. They also seemed to be scared of a fight breaking out and broke up absolutely everything, though Bertuzzi is quite a sissy and wouldnt fight Jones.
The other thing I noticed is why do we still try to poke check Datsyuk and Zetterburg, it has never worked and their deking leaves them open for monsterous hits if we would actually follow through.
We can't win them all and sweeping the Wings is probably a pipe dream, but I am confident in saying from top to bottom we have the better team.

Please explain to me why Bertuzzi should fight Mr "2 pts on the season", Jones.
Its Jones' job to goat other, better players into a fight so that they are gone for 5 mins.
I am sure that Wings fans everywhere are quite happy Bert did not drop them with some 4th line schmuck, seeing as he did end up scoring in OT. Who knows if that happens had he dropped them with a 4th liner.
