Back On the Pond

After going into the postseason on a four game winning streak, Detroit came out flat in Game 1, and clearly were not happy with their performance Tuesday night. "As a group we didn’t feel that we played very well," coach Mike Babcock said. “We didn’t execute very well coming out of our own zone. We didn’t have a lot of speed, therefore we didn’t have attack time. We didn’t have good separation forwards and our D. We didn’t like our game very much.”

The Wings managed 22 shots on Jonas Hiller in Game 1, but they'll look to be more offensive in Anaheim's zone tonight. “I think we need to sustain more pressure in their end,” captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "There was too much one-and-done. They’re playing good defense. They’re clogging up the neutral zone pretty good, so we’ve got to get the pucks deep and go work in their end." If the Wings can get these things done tonight, they may be heading home in a suddenly best-of-five series.
