The problem is, what can Babs do? The D-men are all so bad they make Ericcson look good.

I meant tonight's game.
Just a complete, top to bottom pants shitting. Can be outshot by 20 in 2 periods and expect to win. Regardless of if Howie would have made all the stops, we'd still be going to OT and no guarantee at all that we'd come out with it. There are so many flaws in this team. I will be shocked if they get out of this round.
I'm shocked they got out of Round 1.
Bad game all around. Defense has to be better for Detroit to take a game. With any luck, that will happen next game.
Listen, I can dream, can't I?
Thank you, Denicos.
This D corps looks very subpar. Its difficult right now to tell if they are just young and inexperienced, or not very good. I fear that its all three, in a few cases anyways.
Holy shit that was ugly defense to see in person. You would think the people of Chicago could come up with a different cheer than "Detroit Sucks"
chicago fans are so fucking stupid. I love that they were chanting Howard's name... he was the only one on the Wings playing worth a damn!
At the risk of piling on the kid.......
I'm a big fan of Brendan Smith's game and his future is extremely bright, but I don't remember the last time I saw a d-man have a worse game than he did last night.
Hoping for a bounceback performance on Saturday.
Why did the wings fly home today? WTF? Is that right? Fly home today, get a skate, get on a plane tomorrow and fly back? Does that make sense?
It's an hour flight & they have two days off. Doesn't surprise me at all.
They did indeed. Busy day yesterday for Redbird III.
That third goal was his fault. WTF was that shit? Playing pucks on the back of the net?
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Smith is really bad in his own zone, this wasn't just one game. For much of the Anaheim series he was poor in the defensive zone.
he was trying to freeze it in the net to get a faceoff....
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
It would have frozen itself, metaphorically speaking
Based on how the hawks player actually did get it off the net, I'd say you're wrong.
So why would he go after it if the potential for a fuck up was possible?
I thought the announcers were morans for freaking out about Howard "trying to get the puck off the net." He was obviously going for a freeze.
How old is Franzen in mule years?
Agree 100%, but he took it to another level on Wednesday night. Unfortunately I hold my breath any time he and Quincey (a lost cause) are on the ice.
Corey Crawford career record against the Wings since taking over in 2010-2011 (including Game 1): 12-1-2 1.77 GA .943 Save %
That little nugget is for all of the media that "doesn't buy in" to Corey Crawford being very good.
For those who argue he has a really good team in front of him (which I'm not denying): he allowed 2 goals or less in 12 of those 15 games.
And is/has been playing a Red Wings team good enough to make the playoffs but not make it past the opening rounds.

To do his best to prevent said player from knocking it off. It's not that hard to comprehend, really.
It sort of is. Ended the game.
Can you explain how you think the result would have been any different had he not done anything?
