The Grigorenko situation was very unforunate. Car accidents have not been kind to the Wings!

Yea the first period seemed a bit fuzzie, as they were still trying to gell and also get a feed on the Sabres.
Period 2 and 3 were much better. Pasha and Maltby's goals at the end of one sure were pretty. Pasha scores again, Draper gets in there, Hudler, BOYDees, and Schneids all getting goals in the 3rd were great!
When the D is working, the Offense clicks! And what small mistakes were there, will work themselvs out. Kronwall did well and Rivers popped in there. I'd but Dandy back with WOOLEY like they were and Put Kronwall with LIDs, SCHNEIDS and FISCH seem to be a pair.
Tonight will be a better indicator if last night was real or just built up anticipation. Malts, DRAPER, Shanny, Hully, Pasha, Boydees, Lids, Dandy, Fisch, Woolley and Schneids all did a great job helping Hudler, Mowers, Kronwall and Rivers gell into this line up. (Lewie sure mixed up those lines. Only Hully and Pasha played together. Shanny, Draper and Maltby kept getting new line mates all night)
WHO IS #4? Is that Rivers? Kronwall is 55 and Hudler is 26 I think. Sheesh...I couldn't keep them all straight.

Wooley deserves alot props from the people that wanted him gone. He is playing Awesome.
Mowers looks like he's a keeper and Hudler will get his time to shine and I think the Wings will have to make room for him when the big guns return.
Devereaux may actually be finding his all around game.
The rotating goalie system seems to be working, they should all be fresh by play off time.
Good GR! Go Wings!

Their loss is our gain.... plus he's a former MSU Spartan hockey player, so that makes it even better!
I did hear that Ryan Miller's family travelled from Detroit to watch him play. Must have been a drag for the kid. What's strange is that he was AMAZING in college. He had a GAA of something close to 1.00 one year. I think this is when he won the Hobie Baker award... I guess it's a whole different game in the big leagues.

Ruff stuff! Why did Buffalo let Miller take that beating? I'm not so sure that a young Goalie deserves that. The poor kids family was watching at the game.
I wanted to check around the other FORUMs to see what others were posting about this. Kesh said the same thing you did. Funny.
I think RUFF did the right thing in that game. Some young guys need to learn, to stand up, stay the storm, keep finding the right move to stop all those puck. Sure it didn't "look good" to keep him. I bet the coach wanted to see how R. Miller reacted. How did that shell shocking affect his play. He didn't get frustrated, he kept playing his game. He didn't get angry and bang his stick like HASEK and CUJO have done. He stayed calm... worked through it.
I bet Mr. Ryan Miller will be a much better goalie. He will have that tape to watch... and learn from, not humiliated. I'm sure his Dad and Bro...were proud that he stayed the course and didn't fall apart. There is something to say about learning though mistakes, esp. in a sport like hockey.
R. Miller get's props in my book for that game. Yea he and his team lost. But he made some nice saves and he needs to be proud about that. Detroit, when they get clicking like that...it doesn't matter who's in the net...they find the holes and there is no stopping that MIGHTY RED MACHINE!
