Strong start again, and again we score between the 5th and 10th minute of a period. 5-0 Wings.

Good professional weekend for the Pens in home and home vs Jackets. 4 solid pts. Thats all you can ask for. Just stack pts in Nov, Dec, Jan. Doesnt matter how you do it. First win for Jeff Zatkoff in NHL and a shut out to boot.

Our trip to western Canada ends on a sour note as we revert back to 2nd and 3rd period mediocrity, and go down to a spirited young Jets team backed by an incredibly proactive crowd. Montoya's a good goalie, and we still haven't found an answer to Setoguchi and Frolik's ability to penetrate our defense. These two continue to have our number despite being on a different team. Not having Ericsson and Smith visibly weakened our defensive structure, but we should've given them a tougher fight for the puck. I hope we do better once we face them at the Joe in a few days.

Anyway, it was good to see DeKeyser slap home the first of his many NHL goals to come. Psychologically important home stand begins Thursday night against Dallas, followed by Tampa, the Jets and the Caps. Having lost 4 straight at home, the Wings have a chance to redeem themselves. We're playing 8 home games this month, and gotta make them count.

Best in NHL ? or, best TO had for a long while? Hopefully, the later.

You think Kassian did that on purpose? Melnyk brought similar charges to Cooke with Karlsson inicident. Things happen so fast that it is strange to think that one can actually plant their skate on the back of the heel in the tendon ( a very small area ) while both are moving or colliding. I know in slow mo it looks different, but I think its close to impossible to have intent and act on it. Freak injuries are part of it. Its a fast dangerous sport with men on razor blades. Clarkson hit on Scuderi looked very similar, though no blade was involved, but he has a broken ankle. It was a hit from behind on the boards and the leg came down awkwardly. Not saying he did it on purpose. Just happens.

Why would I say best in the NHL?

Nah don't think he did it on purpose. It was a reactionary statement.

Sorry brother if my tone made you angry. Apologize. Graboski will look good in TO right now.

Whats your thought on the whole Ray Emery Philly fiasco? And look, Downie may have got finally what he deserves ( not nice to say such things, but guy plays so dirty ). It was shameful the way Emery attacked Holtby. And, Philly media gave him a no.3 star for the game they lost 7-0 ! What a joke that whole city and its fans. They choked away a victory last night.

It didn't make me angry at all. I'm just wondering why you would think that though. Kadri-Bozak-Bolland-McClemment. No knowledgeable hockey fan would call that best in the NHL

Philadephia truly is the savage of the NHL world. The way their fans act is absolutely asinine. I haven't seen the emery video yet, but I've heard its pretty bad. What punishment do you think he should get?

I misunderstood, obviously.

Emery should have been banned for at least 10 games. The refs also just watched. Bettman says there was no previous cases like that! What reasoning! That was assault against an unwilling participant. I have no love for Caps, but Emery pulled a bush league move.He is a fake goon. Prying on the weak. Downie and Lecavlier tried to start a fight when the game was out of control, and both got their butt handed to them. Downie sent to hospital and Vinnie wearing face mask for possible fracture.

Cool, another loss at home! Perfect plan and perfect execution of the great, purely academic experiment of playing NHL hockey with just ONE FREAKIN' LINE!!!

More specifically, we have one line, a goalie who’s having awful lapses (highlight saves do not negate bad goals), and the most mediocre defensive corps we’ve had in 25 years, despite the "promise".

Oh, and also we appear to have completely tuned out our head coach.

Good times, Kenny?

Kessel's goal was pretty awesome.

Much anticipated rematch with the Bruins tonight. Should be fun

Déjà vu. The one line show continues at the Joe as we lose 5 straight at home, the first time we've done so since the Dead Wings era. Linemates Hank and Pasha are carrying this team, and that will burn them out real quick. I shudder to imagine what will happen then.

Kenny's boy Quincey's customary defensive error directly led to the Bolts' first win at the Joe since 1994! Kyle panics easily and the mistakes he makes are, you guessed it, pond hockey stuff. Sadly, he's not the only one.

Not re-signing Valtteri Filppula is turning out be yet another example of Kenny's cluelessness. We have a GM who seems to have no clue how to react after the team stopped being elite in 2009. Letting Nyquist sit in the AHL until he’s 25 while having players like Dan Cleary on the roster who does nothing productive is still a mystery to us.

Babcock continues to be tuned out. For the last 2+ years, Babcock has appeared befuddled by his team’s play and given post-game interview after post-game interview about "not being prepared" or "not starting on time" or "not playing to our structure" or "not playing all 60 minutes". I refuse to believe it’s just a talent gap. Sorry.

None of this means Babcock is a bad coach. I think he’s a great coach. But even great coaches get tuned out sometimes. Babcock himself has admitted this many, many times.

Last but not least, every team we've played this year has been faster than us in key moments. Way too many passengers on the Wings bus 2013-2014.

Sure, losing to a division rival is never good, but losing out of 7 out of 10!? Now that's really alarming for a team like ours, especially when we look into the reasons why.

Quote:
I'm *#$%@& baffled. The Red Wings continue to waste strong performances by Jimmy Howard, and thanks to a litany of turnovers, unforced errors and plain-old poor decision-making, the Wings have dropped 3 straight (taking 2 out of a possible 6 points) and have lost 5 straight at Joe Louis Arena, for the first time in 26 years.

This one came in the form of a 3-2 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, a team the Wings will play 4 more times this season, and it came thanks to some really dumb mistakes--whether it was the complete and total lack of coverage on Ryan Malone, the team's baffling inability to cover Steven Stamkos after coming off of over 4 minutes of power play time, or Kyle Quincey's doofy give-it-to-the-game-winner pass to Teddy Purcell under pressure from Richard Panik.

Henrik Zetterberg (2 goals), Pavel Datsyuk, Danny DeKeyser, Niklas Kronwall, Todd Bertuzzi and Howard did their best to take the team on their backs, but the Wings have an error-prone cast behind them (with perhaps the exception of Daniel Alfredsson), and...They look awful. Truly awful.

It shouldn't even surprise you that the Wings were out-shot 4-0 in OT and 34-27 overall, because that's become commonplace.

Good move by Buffalo. Lets see if they still keep Miller and co. moving forward.

Pens are in a major slump. Bylsma should have been canned long time ago. Its so frustrating to watch his insane stretch play system over and over again. Team will make the playoffs, but I am sure another heartbreak awaits. He doesn't match lines ( or, not capable of ) or doesn't adjust. We are very easy to play against. Team has too many speedy small forwards who wilt in playoffs. Shero also gives his players that he wants. Not good.

Malkin is a shadow of former self. I have no clue whats the matter with him. We get Flyers tonight, who all of a sudden is playing good.

1 ES goal in the last 4 games for us. But thanks to goaltending, we are 1-2-1 during that period. Could have been a lot worse.

The Leafs are having the same issue with Carlyle's system that Anahiem had towards the end - not generating good scoring chances on a consistent basis. When you take less than 30 shots on a nightly basis, the goals are going to dry up at one point. I don't know if its the players, or its Carlyle, but we have serious issues with puck possession, and setting up an effective play in the offensive zone. I like to think Carlyle's system, or the lack thereof, in the o-zone has a lot to do with it. We have enough board presence now to get a good cycle game going (Clarkson, Lupul, JVR, Kadri, Kulemin).

If this team wants to go far in the playoffs, they need to seriously address this issue.

Finally beat a good team. But, Ducks were tired in third after a long long road trip. Pens are a team in transition. The third line is shambolic. Crosby and Malkin are going through a rough stretch. But, a win is a win, though Ducks outplayed us for most of the time. I still see a first rd exit for the Pens as this team is built poorly. Bylsma is becoming arrogant and know it all. He won't make changes. He has his favorites in the team and no matter what, they play, but he is brutal on young players. One mistake and you are scratched for weeks. Hope they fire his a**..

NFL note : Saw Megatron in action last Sunday at Heinz. Wow..what a freaking beast.

Trailing 0-1 to the Preds after 2 at the Joe. Andersson's awful turnover led to Weber's PPG, taking our PP/PK ratio of -22! Our curse at home continues. DeKeyser left the game after being boarded, and hasn't returned yet. Hoping he's OK. Rookie mistake on his part, got hit trying to make a non-critical play on their forecheck rather than using his body with hands to the glass, thereby protecting the puck and his head in the process. Helm demonstrated how to do it right later.

Really impressed by the young Texan Seth Jones. Still in his teens, his poise on the puck under pressure and judgement on 50-50 pucks on the attack makes me think of Lidstrom in his prime. He already knows when to join the attack and when to stay back and defend the blue line. Graceful sakter who knows how to skate his way, both forward and backwards, to create better passing lanes. GREAT player in the making if this continues.

Wow Detroit has 7 OT losses already. That's 1/3 of their games .

Megatron is a beast like no other. He might be the best athlete on the planet after Lebron James (in terms of overall athletic ability).

Overall, a decent game last night. The first and mid 3rd was good defensively, the rest was not. Johnny boy made some good saves, the best of which came on an Islanders PP. That team does not know how to PK. They put no pressure on the point men or the forwards around the dot, leaving them with ample space and time to shoot or make a play. Kessel scored one of his goals from there on the PP, and set up some really nice passes, which trigger-shy Franson wasted.

Being out shot is the norm now. Thank god we have two good goalies - facing 30+ shots every night for one tendy would be extremely stressful. Although, the number of scoring chances we are giving up is in the middle of the pack.

Kadri and possibly Bozak comes back Thursday night. It's amazing how we've managed to stay in the top 3/4 when 3 of our top centers have been gone for a week, and 2 have been gone for 2+ weeks now. Trevor Smith, an AHLer, has done an excellent job of filling in with 6 pts in 12 games.

Peter Holland (Center) has been very impressive for us so far. The big man crashes the net on a regular basis, wins about 60% of his faceoffs, and knows who to dish the puck to on his line. If he continues to develop, he could be the perfect fit between Kessel and JVR in the long run. He was taken 15th OV in Kadri's draft, and scored at PPG pace in the AHL. Excellent low buy at the right time by Nonis.

Having lost 7 straight, 8 straight at the Joe, a little bit of sanity FINALLY prevails and Nyquist gets called up from the Griffins. Babcock puts crazy pressure on him right away.

Quote:
“Well, his job, and no different tonight if I were him, he’s still allowed to go back to the minors, is be so good, tonight you put so much pressure on the coach and the manger that they have to do something about it,” Babcock said. “That’s what he’s done. That’s the only thing you can do as a player. The best players in the end get to play, they decide who gets to play because they play well enough to make it happen and he’s done a good job.”
Gee, no pressure, Gus! You get one effing game to prove you’re indispensible. Fail and you’re headed up the I-96 to Grand Rapids until sometime in January. So what does he do? He causes a turnover on the forecheck and goes to the front of the net. The puck ends up on his stick and he finds the net with great tamber and poise.

1-0 Wings with the most challenging periods yet to come.
