Wings Blow It...

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , , , ,

Wings blew it tonight. Up 5-2 with 16 minutes left in the third period, the Red Wings let the Penguins mount a third period come back, as Jordan Staal's goal with 23 seconds remaining sent the game into overtime. It was Staal's third goal of the period! I puked a little.

In overtime, a guy whose name I can't spell, nor pronounce, nor do I want to try, scored about a minute and a half in to give the Penguins a 7-6 victory. I know this game goes under the OT section of the standings, but the "loss" is painful. 4 goals in the third period is pretty Jason Grilli bad. However, it wasn't just the third period though. The Penguins scored 5 goals with less than 10 minutes to play! That absolutely can't happen ever again.

Chris Osgood in those last 10 minutes looked more like Goldberg in his first game against the Hawks rather than Julie the Cat Gaffney.

The Wings have gotten off to a great start this season, despite the defense and goal tending being less than stellar. Those two units will have to start playing better if the Wings expect to overcome the Sharks in the West and defend their Cup.
