Shut out in the last two games. Goalies playing great. Heck the whole team as it stands playing great. Two consecutive games where shots hit the post...then the goalie...but not enough luck to roll in.
Speed and skill generate luck. Speed and skill are hurting on the IR. These guys from GR are doing great. Smith is playing so well with Kronner that I am wondering how the lines will look when Big E comes back.
So many points were given away earlier in the season. Losses to poor teams. Poor efforts against good teams. Now injury ridden the team has shown they are capable of playing with the full 60 mins. Play well without the stars that are missing.
Will the injury bug get squashed before the Wings slip to far out of contention? Who knows... We all hope.
One thing that I feel pretty sure about. If the Wings keep playing like this, the speed and stars come back. It is going to be one hell of a ride through the rest of the season.
I have been guilty of wanting major changes in the system and line up earlier in the season. Tonight I really hope the management staff does not make any knee jerk moves to improve the team for the short term of making playoffs this season....this team, when whole, is to be feared.
Kenny said two year rebuilding process at the beginning of last year... The future is bright... This season maybe if that damn injury bug goes away...next season if he stays away. One more Cup in the Joe? I think maybe
