I was thinking the same thing...Howard makes all those great saves on other shots tonight, but that backhand from Stastny is what goes in? How does that happen?

Maybe it's because they need to take a faceoff and win it, and then they'll pull him again...what a moronic thing to say in my opinion.

Have to agree with that.

Yeah, he's just a homer and wants the wings to score

In Duchene's defence, no one else was getting anything done either.

To be honest I don't really think we've played that badly tonight. Some bad plays (Elliott giveaway, Mitchell not burying that backhand) but overall this game highlights to me the difference in coaching.

The Wings suffocate our breakout each and every time and box out the puck carrier, while we let them make huge transition passes and then east-west passes in our zone.

Elliott needs to stay up and play. He's had a couple glaringly bad plays but outside of those has actually looked much better to me than in his earlier games. Let him stay up and figure it out.

Stastny has had a good game. O'reilly was much improved today and needs to be playing with some better players but we don't really have the depth right now. Gotta figure something out.


EDIT: As I'm posting Avs score.

LOL Sacco calls the timeout...


I would REALLY like to be a fly on the wall for that conversation between Sacco and the players, I imagine it would go like this:


"Uhhhhh guys, you needz to put the puck in the net. I don't want to get fired and we needs to wins the game. So goes out there and score so I can keep my job"

Duchene had the game on his stick. Flubbed it.

Tough one to lose.

Duchene, Parenteau and Mitchell were all so close.

Yes, out of everything that happened tonight, that cost us the game.

Maybe Stastny losing the last three offensive zone faceoffs is the reason we lost.

I thought Avs were the better team. A little bit of luck and a great game by Howard got Wings the win.

O'Brien and Barrie were excellent.

No replay on the Wings feed. How close was Duchene?

Yea that was ********. There's was like 1:30 left with the faceoff at center. Why would they risk leaving him out?

Avs played a good game, just couldn't finish. Unfortunate bounce off the board costed us the game. Giguere has got to be aware of those though, the whole entire league knows the boards are lively in Detroit, he's gotta be more aware than that.
