The Blues' hitting is causing an awful lot of errors by The Wings. They've left the puck in front of Howard, waiting for a Blue to pick it up, several times. The Blues have had the puck all alone with only Howard to beat several times. I can't believe they still have no goals. Pretty discouraging.

Saw this earlier this week. Howard plays great, keeps them in it let's hope Eliott keeps up his play and we can get a few past Howard here

Howard making some nice saves but I can't complain. This is an exciting game to watch.

The finishing has been a problem. Very discouraging indeed. Do all of the work to open the chance then sit on their thumb waiting for it to just finish putting the icing on the cake.


The main forum is pretty bad....

Cole's hit is causing a riot. It was a hard hit, but looked pretty legit. I wouldn't be surprised if Cole did get some repercussion. The NHL is making this wussified.

Was that Datsyuk who threw an elbow at Cole later? If so, it's time to target that guy's head. Honestly.

And these Wings guys are whiners beyond belief. Shanahan's going to look at it waaaaaaaah!!!

When the Blues own a period like that, they really need to put something on the scoreboard. Overall, a really good period though. A ton of physicality on the puck, strong positioning/gaps, aggressive forechecking...lots of positives in their play, which is as good as it's been in the last two weeks.

Hope they can carry it through to the next period and put something on the board, because they aren't going to have much left in their legs by the third.

They have GOT to speed up their PP moves. This slow passing is not going to cut it.

Arnott.... I love that veteran.

Anyone have a stream? The one I was using is acting like a broken record.

Yeah, usually.

EDIT: Oh thanks for the new link. And of course I start watching right as they score. CRAP.

I dislike Franzen quite a lot, but that was a pretty nice goal.

This is the first game of the year I've assumed they were going to lose from the opening puck drop.

This is sad...

Seriously bench Berglund, I am sick of hearing

Berglund with no backside pressure.

Berglund misses a wide open net

Berglund doesn't get the puck in deep.

I know he is young and still has a ton of potential. Hell I have defended more times than I can count but I am very close to jumping on the trade him bandwagon.

Dominate the majority of the game, lose anyway. How do we manage to do this all the freaking time? These mental lapses need to stop. And we need to finish on our chances! Frustrating.

I want to know your guys definition of dominate (other than the physical game). The shot clock is 18-16 in the Blue favor...I hardly call that domination.

They're gonna get blown out. Blues just standing around in their own zone. Was weird to watch the first. I know they played well but I felt detached watching it just assuming they were gonna lose.
