Wings fall in a shootout to the Jets, 3-2. They played well for the most part, but can’t win.
More after the jump:
Howard has to be better. He’s making too much money to have a goal per game that he regrets giving up. Defend him if you want, but he has been better before.
Still, you’re not going to win many games when you only score 2 goals. The team has to find offense. They have to start burying their chances. Seems like all but two guys have resorted to playing like grinders. They just hack at the puck in the general direction of the net. It’s horrible to watch.
I don’t know for certain, but did Pavel and Hank play more than 1:00 together in OT? I know Pav played a lot because of the PK, but the point is this: what good is it to play guys from your third or fourth line when you have your two best players sitting on the bench for 3 minutes straight? Roll 3 Lines in OT, moron.
NOHS Three Stars of the Game:
First Star: Datsyuk had two goals.
