Florida @ Detroit, Friday

Postby Pop Zeus » Fri Jan 05, 2018 8:16 pm

Wings take a 1-0 lead early.
Athanasiou with the early goal.
Florida beats Howard twice but the posts were his friend.
Not a great period despite the 1-0 lead.

I had the spicy scallop something at Bravo and it was quite good.

Still plenty of time to put an end to this streak.

Baxter! Bark twice if you're in Milwaukee!

Wings are leading 3-2, not sure how. Dialing in to see if Wings can hang on for the last 5!

Great win. Good to see the kids scoring. Hope they give them more ice time. Howard saving the day!

You do understand that much of that is due to Blash rewarding him with more TOI when he is playing well right? The dolt does occasionally get a few things right.

It's abundantly clear that when AA is on he is a difference maker.

Jimmy Howard. Not good enough when he had a good team. Not bad enough when he had a bad team.

Unless there are injuries elsewhere it appears that NYI is the only possible destination for him.

Halak makes 4.5. Jimmy 5.25. Jimmy for Halak and a 4th or something works for me. We can eat the salary difference if necessary.

I don't watch the wings much anymore because the product on the ice is inferior. The skill and smarts are gone.
The wings go to play is clearing the zone to open ice where a speedy winger picks it up for a shot on goal and the tender keeps the team in games.
Makes me want to get some cats

Earlier this year, the last time Detroit looked good, AA was playing a lot.
Then Blashill dumped AA the the 4th line again.
Sure, he still got 15-16 minutes some nights. But he was playing 1/2 those minutes on Line 4, then cycling through the lines and playing PP2.

Athanasiou had one bad game in Edmonton (as did Larkin and several other Red Wings) and he got jettisoned to Line 4.

This recent promotion to the Larkin line was a happy accident for Blashill. Bertuzzi was slated for Z's line and Mantha for Larkin's line. Aa was staying on L4.

But Mantha got hurt. AA got promoted. THe team won two-straight and Blashill, fighting for an NHL job, isn't quite stupid enough to mess with that.

But I suspect as soon as he has the chance Blashill will send AA back to L4.
