Two thoughts following tonight’s 5-2 loss to the Ducks tonight…
#1 – The Ian White broken stick giveaway that turned into the Ducks’ second goal really does exemplify the Wings’ season to this point. Seems like things are under control, then some crazy thing you couldn’t have planned for comes up and everything falls apart with no one able to pull it all back together.
#2 – If that play didn’t exemplify the season, the game-winning goal would. Great tip by Cogliano, for sure, but that pass never should have gotten to him. Kronwall has to take away that passing lane, even if just by lying down. Brutal defensive play; an inability to do the simple thing that ended up burning them.
That’s all I’ve got.
