• Had to let DH.N Bot kick off the game thread ’cause the Wings are unbeaten when he does.  And I probably just jinxed it.

  • Kyle Quincey’s first goal of the season would be like that.

  • Really solid period, helped a lot by the pair of power plays even if they didn’t score on them.  Lots of possession.  Better than the last game against LA, for sure.

  • Awesome PK.  Best of the season.

  • Lead only being one terrifies me but the Wings are playing a really efficient game, especially in the PK.  All about positioning.

  • Both of the penalties to put the Wings on that five-on-three were deserved (though the faceoff violation is a stupid rule), but, damn, Kings have had nothing in this game outside of their power plays.

  • I’m gonna be fast because it’s late.


    You don’t usually deserve to win a game where you score one fluky goal.  It would have been somewhat embarrassing if Kyle Quincey’s bouncing mess of a first-period tally was the only goal of the game.


    That said, there’s a bad feeling about the Kings scoring the tying goal on their third minute of five-on-three in the game, in a game where the Wings saw no five-on-three time.  There’s something that feels wrong about the Kings tying it up after Dustin Penner wasn’t called for his high hit on Brendan Smith, with a goal where the puck came free because of a trip.


    The Wings may not have done enough to win this game, but it doesn’t seem like the Kings did either.
