Certainly not the third period we were looking for. The effort was there most of the night, but turnovers were the Red Wings’ undoing in this game. The Ducks scored 4 of their 5 goals off of turnovers. Yes, injuries are a problem, but our key injuries are to forwards and the problem was on defense. Howard did what he could, but there were too many turnovers to overcome. More after the jump: The first goal by Anaheim appeared to be Kronwall’s fault because he looked the most ridiculous standing there with his back to the play, but the goal scorer was Zetterberg’s man. Kronwall was responsible for the d-bag standing behind the net. Not saying he was in perfect position, but if Zetterberg has his man, that goal isn’t scored. However, it was more of a great play by the Ducks than a bad play by Zetterberg. As for their second goal, that’s just terrible luck. White’s stick explodes and goes right to Perry. Congratulations to Perry on his first NHL goal, by the way. At least I’m assuming it was his first goal ever since he celebrated like it was. Goals 3, 4 and the empty netter were from neutral zone turnovers. Great game by the Griffins tonight. Tatar is making Ken Holland look foolish for signing Samuelsson and I love it. Not so much that Ken looked bad, but that Tatar is taking advantage of his ice time. What little he’s given, that is. He and Andersson looked great tonight. Speaking of Andersson, congratulations on your first goal, kid. Un-fun Fact: The Wings are 0-2-1 when Tatar scores a goal. Really not much else to say here. Turnovers killed us. Next game is Sunday in Minnesota where the Wings will have a chance to make up for their last two games. LGRW Oh, one more thing: I give Corey Emmerton all kinds of crap on this blog and talk about how he doesn't do anything. Well, the last 5-6 games he's played, I've really liked him. He's finishing checks, working hard in the corners and tonight we saw him block three straight shots from Sheldon Souray. The first two hurt him, but he kept going back for more. Outstanding work. Keep it up.
