Red Wings vs. Senators: Rank 'Em!

The Senators traded for Dion Phaneuf just to face off against the Wings on Wednesday night. I'm flattered. The Wings got a 2-0 lead and then took a million penalties in the third to let the Sens claw back into the game. Fortunately, the Wings learned "protect lead" and won 3-1.

Quick Thoughts

  • Bobby Ryan gets away with a lot of holding and interference stuff for a big forward who's hard to get the puck by. Even without the cheating he's good, so it's not that; I just think he cheats too much and since he's not a Red Wings that is a bad thing.
  • I'm writing this bullet during the second intermission and I'm saying Brendan Smith is having a really good game. Here's to hoping the third period doesn't screw that all up.
  • I think the Wings were trying to help Mrazek's Vezina case in the third period with all the stupid penalties. /

Now you vote with your thumbs. Up for good, down, for bad, none for neutral. Thanks!
