Got away with it in Chicago but just barely. Didn't get away with it here in Detroit. Tough penalties and a dumb move by Petry be damned.
It is an absolute chicken **** way to play hockey. Oilers played an incredible first 40 minutes. But they deserved to lose the way that the team came out in the 3rd period. Krueger is such a poor coach.
Kruegerian hockey at its worst. They stopped attacking, sat back and let the Wings dictate the pace and just looked generally lifeless after getting the 2 goal lead.
I especially love the move to promote Smyth to the top line and basically staple Yakupov to the bench. Poor Petry, i'm pretty sure that he just wants to go hide somewhere, embarassing display by him.
I feel bad for Hall, he was the only one who came to play. I don't know what's going on with Eberle but it's concerning the hell out of me, Nuge as well.
Oh well, this isn't a playoff team anyway. They played 2 decent periods so i'm sure that Krueger is satisfied with that.
