I suggest we all do the same as well. We have been through this before, we will go though it again, and last year we still overcame.

Zetterberg was going to get to the puck before Oshie. He did the right thing considering there was no chance a ref was giving us another penalty and he wasn't getting to the puck.

There was a pretty big gap between Z and Oshie when that race started, and Z ate it up so fast I thought he was going to walk right around Oshie at the end of that play to tuck it in.

A dive might have worked to sweep it to the corner, but then Z just walks over and picks it up judging by how long it took the 3rd man back to enter the play.

Not a lot of great options at that point. He just didn't have any legs left to my eyes. I agree with CN...the Pk time (especially with a long kill right at the end) and back-to-back pretty much sucked the jump out of the team there by the end.

Yep.

On that note, I'm going to go bed. If I stay up posting on these forums this evening, I'm just going to get myself in trouble.

Good night.

@ the refs.

Could be worse, could be a playoff game. Blues will be still be the #1 seed in the West. Adversity is good for a team. It makes them hate to lose even more.

I can't even read the comments on NHL.com anymore. The bandwagon Wings fans are unbearable. Wings fans on HF are usually level headed, but I swear they have some of the worst fringe fans in all of sports. I'm shutting down the computer for the night. It's just going to piss me off.

So, is it too much to hope that Backes does not get suspended as well?

I can see an NHL official or two trying to finagle an "intent" angle on this to cover this particular debacle.

Does anything EVER happen to these refs for possibly costing teams games the way they did tonight?

I know that if they perform poorly during the regular season, they don't get to ref post-season games, but that isn't the same.

If every other NHL employee can get suspended, its high time we start hearing about the penalties the refs receive for piss-poor performance.

The refs are not NHL employees they are a union and the NHL has very little power when it comes to the refs. Walsh will probably get a write-up just like any other job when some one does something stupid, but that will be it.

Referees will never be called out. The closest we will see is Backes not getting a suspension, which is the NHL's way of saying the ref made a mistake. People will dress certain things up as accountability, but there is very little.

As for the thread on the main boards about the Backes hit, that has turned into an embarrassment.

You nailed it on both parts.

I hate when the main boards discussion becomes a "how many championships has xxxx won in the past xxxx years?" kind of deal. I is completely classless and I do not take any part of it.

I do however commend most of the Red Wings fans here as they are not the typical Wings fan that you run into on other boards or on the street.

It was an awful call and now that I am done being pissed, I will move on as will the team. There will be bumps in the road this year but I still love our chances at making a serious run.

I agree with this. I think the Blues are gonna come out pissed on Tuesday and definitely next Thursday.

Winning them all creates a lull. And let's be honest this team has been taking periods off recently.

If they are a union, then they are NHL employees, just like the playes.

The NHL Ref union doesn't cut the checks, the NHL does.

If the NHL can suspend players who have a union, they should be able to suspend refs.

Very impressive that 8 games into the season and the Blues give up their 1st ES goal against. That along with the insane shots against speak to Hitchcock running an elite defense down there. Scary.

Thankfully a mod ended the thread on the main board about the hit. That was just embarassing for both teams fans.

Regardless of that garbage call or whoever ended up with the 2 points, these games against the blues are something very, very special.. It seems for the past 3 years every game between the two teams have been extremely entertaining. Luckily we'll see each other alot more this season.
