Decent start to the recent Detroit Red Wings west coast trip. The first one of the new season. A few observations thus far ...
1) Defense. Out of sync. Perfect time to get healthy against the likes of the San Jose Sharks and the the Anaheim Ducks
2) Goalie. Ty Conklin has got to play, just not so often. I realize Bab's wanted to get him in but let Ozzie rest in February and March.
3) Marion Hossa. What can I say? Looks like the player who we thought he was - Crown his a$$!
Last night the defense was still suspect. Improvement is seriously needed. The next two games will show us a lot. One thing that has been reinforced upon me the last two games is our shootout skill. When one team can put Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, and Marion Hossa back to back to back ... that my friend's is some scary stuff.
