Chris Osgood gets another chance to go for his 400th career win tonight against one of his former teams, the St. Louis Blues.

It's night one of Detroit's month without Pavel Datsyuk, which means Kris Draper is back in the lineup.

I haven't been paying attention to news today so that's all I've got. I'm running around a bit tonight so I might be late getting to the thread. I'll check in when I can.

Well... It looks like 400 is a curse and not going to happen any time soon.

1st period was a wash. The first goal was not Ozzie's fault as there was no way he could see the puck. The second one was all him as he was out of position and the final goal was just a clusterf*ck all around.

Need to come out in the second with our heads out of our collective ass.

The PK needs to get their sh*t together as well because they are facing the number 26 PP in the league. Right now they are looking like they are in the top five courtesy of the PK.

Well... I guess we start getting ready for the next game as this is a waste of time and energy.

Wings have absolutely been dominating, but they're almost out of time.

Babcock's glare for the refs was, "If they can haul Cleary down in the slot could we have kicked Halak in the face?"

Despite my last comment in the GDT, this is not a loss that the Red Wings can blame the refs on.

I am shocked that while being dominated for the last seven minutes of a one-goal game, a team that averaged 17 minutes of penalties per game did not commit a single infraction. But the Wings shouldn't have needed a power play at that point.

It was yet another game where the Red Wings got a late start. That could be seen in the first two minutes.

I don't want to throw him under the bus but I'd do it to Jimmy Howard: Chris Osgood needed to make one more save, maybe two. Yeah, Jonathan Ericsson made a pretty awful giveaway leading to Matt D'Agostini's goal, but Osgood got faked out on the breakaway. Stop that shot and it's a different game.

The loss was a team effort, though. Just like a comeback win would have been.

The team really turned it around for the second half of the game. Osgood was sharp, the defense limited St. Louis' chances, and the offense controlled the puck. Those last seven minutes were pretty amazing, aside from not producing a goal.

I dunno, I'm mad about this loss but not as mad as I expected to be. Of course, I thought the Wings would drop this game and the Vancouver matchup so they came out with two more points than I was predicting.

All I want to know is why they couldn't play the entire game like they did the last half.
