All three had beastly games. Emmerton had tons of chances and finally buried one, and Smith/Kindl were both rocks on the backend and joined the rush at perfect times. So excited about the way those two have been playing.
Smith is deserving of a star but Kindl got a goal so gave it to him. Smith has been our best defenseman these past two games, just isn't getting any luck offensively. Kronwall can either score a lot of points and suck defensively or not score and play great defense.
I'm no abby hater however how can you justify giving him a star when he made an empty net goal? I would rather give that to Howard or at least two or three other people lol. Either way maybe this sparks something in him going forward?
Emmerton (Has he really stepped his game up this year)
HM: Smith, Abs
Anybody else think that Quincey has played really well over the past couple of games? I think now that he's settled down into that shutdown dman role he's turned his game around.
I also don't think we are going to see White in a Wings uniform again. Unless the injury bug hits before CC is back I think he'll be moved the day or day after CC is back. Especially with the improved play of the younglings on D he's expendable now.
