Red Wings @ Blues - 12/23

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.

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

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.
