i actually think we matched up better last night than we have in a while...the shotcount was lopsided obviously, and Pekka made a few big saves, but really it was just that Datsyuk\Bertuzzi\Franzen line giving us real trouble. It didn't matter who was matched up against it...if that line was out, the puck was in our end and it was staying there. We got far more offensive traction\chances than I'm accustomed to, playing Detroit.

I've never had a problem with Wings fans that come to the games. This was back when I was a season ticket holder. Most are pretty civil. I have a lot of respect for Babcock and a few other coaches in the lead. Glad that we could get out a win last night. On to the next one.

I seriously doubt hillen has been told to play the front of the net like a pansy.

and our pk that has been very good as of late? 10/14 or 71%. before last night, 5 penalties in 4 games helped make it seem like it was doing very well. Our pk has stunk this year, and last night went 0 for 2. and our 4 game losig streak that preceded this nice little run our pk was humming along at 64% or 11 kills in 17 chances. 82.7 for the year, which is 15th, or average. our improved pp offsets it a bit, but to my point, our pk stinks compared to the high level we are used to and hillen is a big part of that.
All I know is both Bouillon and Hillen played their men the exact same way, as did the Wings' defensemen against our guys in front of the net. And regardless of what Crusty says, that is the way defensemen cover those guys in front of the net on the kill these days in the NHL. I agree both Bouillon and Hillen, especially, could have done a better job handling their guys, but this is the way they are taught to play them. They would rather block the shot than allow a tip.

Up until last night the PK had not allowed a goal in the previous 4 games. It now stands at 15th in the league at 82.7%. It needs to get over 85% to be in the top 10, which I think it will. Trotz said last night he has been happy with the kill even though they were dinged twice last night.

you have to take into account that we are not taking many penalties right now too. But that works both ways, have a ton of them, it may inflate the stats a bit due to sheer numbers and practice killing them. Have too few of them, the ones that do go in make the number look terrible. I know what I see, and I see our guys watching too much still on the pk, esp from the d-men.

It would generate a whole lot more offense than skating in, making some half-assed pass and then turn it over.
Come on really? We are talking about Detroit Red Wings
I think Fisher's line did a good job in shutting down the Dat sucks, Mule and Brutetuzzi line.....

I was at work on Wednesday, and the manager turned on the replay of the Calgary game. Two of them were in the store until the second intermission the night before, and they both missed the entire third period. I didn't ruin it for them, but I did try to watch as much as I could without being lazy. At one point Crispy says something ridiculous and I just sort of laughed and said, "Haha Crispy's drunk again." The manager laughed and responded, "Crispy is freakin' nuts".

At least there's that
I thought he was drunk?

Agreed. There was one series of passes- four or five in a row- last night that all hit the recipient in the skate. Rythmn or timing gets off then gets stuck for bit. I think a lot of times it's fear of turning the puck over, so they don't lead the man like they should. ahem.. smithson

Weber played BIG last night and needs to continue it. Beast defensively and then late in the 3rd in the offensive end.

Good to see and hope he keeps it up.

Like I said, you'd probably have to PM Sam and DSL, or get in just after midnight EST or something. We're not exactly the most organized in the world with our GDTs.

What is the Preds record against Detroit this season? Last year, I believe that Nashville won 4 of 6.

1-1

Detroit won the first game 4-1

Nashville won the second game 4-3

(I have a season series bet with a Wings fan friend of mine. Loser pays the winner's bar tab up to $30)
