If the playoffs started today, Wings would be in the playoffs. 1 point up on Montreal, 5 up on Ottawa and the 4th place teams in the Metro. The current collection of players (as constructed and playing as they are now) isn't going to do anything in the playoffs, but what does switching coaches really accomplish? They need to do a better job of carrying the puck into the zone and setting up once there. Defensively, the main issue is that they're spending too much time in that particular zone. They could really use some young quick players….like….Tomas….Tatar…..and…….Gustav……Nyquist……umm…..hmm.

@Twig Fair point, especially given that we were on a west coast back to back (and San Jose is farther from Los Angeles than people back East think it is).

Not sure I agree with Gussie as 1st star. I thought our defense did a good job of hustling to keep him from facing too many difficult shots. The only major error was Abs losing control of the puck on the way out of the zone - and that ended up in a goal that I thought Gussie should have stopped. The offense was nice, but it is concerning that our only goal was Kronwall launching one off of about half the players in the ice, though we had some other excellent chances that resulted in 'just wide' or in good saves from Niemi.
