The Red Wings didn’t deserve to win tonight, and that’s painful enough. On top of that, you have the seemingly magic bounces the Canadiens got to seal the win.
The whole thing was ugly. I don’t even want to talk about it.
Detroit had better bounce back against Columbus on Tuesday.
Nope. I don't wanna. I don't wanna write about the Red Wings' loss to the Canadiens.I said on Montreal Hockey Talk before the game that I expected a Detroit loss and it happened for exactly the reasons I expected it. The Wings' defense is not what it needs to be to compete with the top teams in the league on a regular basis. The top pair of Niklas Kronwall and Jonathan Ericsson is not a top pair on most of the elite teams and it dominos from there. Ericsson had an awful night. Mike Green had a brutal turnover that turned into a goal. Kyle Quincey's horrific misplaying of the puck led directly to Montreal's first goal.

I was going to do a postgame post with all sorts of multimedia on why Montreal's final two goals were off bad calls but, while I do think that and will spend some time on it, that's not the biggest story of the night, just the part that makes me most angry.
