How many were on the Ducks' power play?

In this order - 1. Howard; 2. Dats; 3. Eaves. Good job Brunner, but he was just Johnny on the Spot, he was pretty much a non-factor otherwise. Eaves played a GREAT game, just doesn't show up on the score sheet. Hon. Mention to Cleary, Nyquist and Bert - solid play. Finally, can someone buy Kronwall a stick with negative curve? The guy had at least two legit chances to finish and blew them both way over the net.

HM: Smith and Gus. Gus is slowly becoming Mr. OT. Z played well too.

Lashoff seriously needs to go, though. Bring in White please?

Yep. We're catching glimpses of the offensive defenseman he's supposed to be.

Not sure what game you were watching then. They made 2 horrible defensive blunders that ended up in the back of the net.

Besides, that "they gave far more then they got."

Its not like they are playing the California Golden Seals....The Ducks are legitimate Cup contenders, who I suspect will take the next 2 from the Wings.

But for this roster, I am pretty happy. and consider this the Magnum Opus for the season.

Crazy bread. Maybe they'll win in regulation.

The defense screwed up badly twice, otherwise Howard might have had a shut out

For anyone who hasnt seen the goal yet on the Fox sports Detroit feed, go watch the highlites on NHL.com. Ken and Mick are celebrating like we won the Cup. Hilarious. I love it.

1. Howard (Now that was an Ozzie like response to a bad game... he had some puck luck tonight be made the saves he had too. He looked big tonight. I'd like to see a little better rebound control)
2. Dats (He just turned in on in the 3rd. When Dats is physically involved... he is absolutely dominant)
3. Kronner/ Ericsson (a legit 1st pairing tonight, great offensive zone plays by E, huge check by Kronner... great game!)

Nice to see Smith looking good offensively. If we can get him a solid vet defensive dman (or Dekeyser lol) I think we could see a different Smith next year!

Datsyuk
Brunner
Smith

Howard made some great stops but I feel like Smith deserves a star for his best game of the season.

That was another ugly start of a game. CONNECT A PASS. Jesus.

After the Kronwall hit the fans refused to let their team relax again. They deserve a lot of credit. Then Datsyuk went into beast mode, Zetterberg hounded the puck, Franzen looked angry that they took a goal away from him....

I want Kronwall off the team. He go shoot pucks off the glass somewhere else. And he can take Flip with him.

The two halves of the game were night and day. As soon as we started bringing the puck to the net and crashing the crease, good things started happening. Imagine that! Diddling the puck in the corner with sweet passes to the point and the eventual turnover is not a winning strategy.

Ericsson deserves credit for his game today. He's been great. Huge turnaround from last season, it seems his confidence is growing and his dumb defensive plays are barely happening anymore. When he signed the contract for 3.25 I was scratching my head, now I wish the contrcat was longer.

Aside from a few stupid plays, I thought Kindl played well defensively. Good skater with ability to take the puck away from an opponent.

Have to say . . . Detroit isn't my first, favorite team because I grew up on another one . . . But Datsyuk has to be one of my favorite players if not my favorite . . . Can not get enough of that guy. Unbelievable skill . . . Like unbelievable. Classy. Tough as nails though not being huge. Man, what a player. MAN what a player. He and Sid are the best two players in the league and its close with the edge to Crosby. But Pavel has intangibles that the Pen captain doesn't even have . . . Just on absolute awe of his performance tonight. And that's an understatement. Just wow.

Yep, Kindl has his moments every game but for the most part he's solid.

If we want to win this series, Smith is going to have to play like he did tonight. He was a legit offensive defenseman.

I disagree. The highlight of the night was either Perry hitting himself in the face with his own stick or Beauchemin trying to run Datsyuk.
