Nightmare on Helm Street:
That was a really boring game to watch. It didn’t seem to me that Detroit had very many quality scoring chances last night. Most of their shots came from the boards with no screen in front. Only one PP the whole game and it was ours. Very uneventful game.
More after the jump:
Howard doesn’t get much help these days and certainly doesn’t get much help in San Jose. His numbers in the Shark Tank are bad, but I don’t fault him for this last game. A lucky bounce on the first goal, then a bad giveaway by Lashoff on the second.
Stop shooting low on Niemi. I say this after every game: Niemi’s pads are so tall, all he has to do is be in the butterfly and no shot will get by him low. There is no gap to squeeze the puck into. It irritates me how many saves his pads make for him, but I have to admit he does an amazing job of finding the puck in traffic. I hate Niemi and his fat face.
Datsyuk made sure that Logan Couture’s name will live on and on long after his uneventful car...

Pavel Datsyuk could dangle his way out of a straight jacket. Thursday during the Red Wings-Sharks game, Datsyuk got fancy in the corner against Sharks center Logan Couture. Couture was left grasping for air as he landed on his tuckus.
Fox Sports Detroit’s Mickey Redmond absolutely loved it, and rightfully so.
Happy birthday, Logan Couture.
Pavel Datsyuk is here to remind you how slippery that ice can be:
UPDATE: Logan Couture was cool about it:

Pavel Datsyuk makes NHL players look dumber than the sequel to Van Wilder (The Rise of Taj). His shootout goals are jaw dropping and his stick handling gives me a sports boner.

Like dropping the mic or throwing the ball into the stands, had Datsyuk...

You don’t see this happen that often in the NHL, but when it does it is a thing of beauty. Check out Pavel doing what he does best and in the process dropping Logan Couture to the ice. Pavel proceeded to pick up the broken ankles, tossed them in a bag, and then brought them home with him.

Tommy Wingles had a goal and two assists for the San Jose Sharks as they blanked the Anaheim Ducks 4-0. Antti Niemi said no to all 22 Anaheim shots and Logan Couture had two assists in the win.
SPIN: Wingles’ three-point night gives him 10 points for the season. He might have a breakout like this every now and again but isn’t roster-worthy in anything but large or deep leagues...
