That is weird. Now, defensemen often outplay forwards so much as I think Ericsson is useless I understand that stat. Glendening's playing time is a mystery.

For what it's worth though, I don't have a big problem with Mantha and AA getting low minutes, especially now that the powerplay is clicking and the Wings are scoring goals. Both are just breaking into the NHL,  still need to work on their overall game, and I don't project AA to ever be a star anyways.

Here's a horrible thought as well - this could be Pavel's last game at the Joe!

Gotta end sometime.   He is still great, but he's fading quickly.  

So, the commercial with the DJ dressing in the suit and posing as a financial advisor,  When he's dancing in the suit in the office, I so want to punch his face.........

1-0 Wings after 1. Yep, that was a gift goal. From Gostisbehere I believe. Perhaps Richards helped make it happen a bit.

That's not even playing time!  Points per 60.

 

Your horrible thought is scarier to me though.

Ouch, I misread it. Although I'm not a real big believer in value of Points/60. And surprising, because I thoughb Pavel has been clocking the points at a decent pace once he got his legs back after being off.

2-0 Wings after 2. Keep it up. A regulation win would leave Philly as a nice possible fallback for the Wings in case the Bruins pass them.

Leafs lose to Columbus while Edmonton beat Vancouver. So Toronto is assured of a bottom 2 spot. Likely bottom spot unless they pick up 3 points in final 2 games. Relax, Leafs, you can try really really hard tomorrow against Philly.

Nyquist with just a dirty dangle to get a great opportunity from 10 feet out. You really have to put those home.

Two of my favorite quotes from a Flyers message board tonight:

"What a stupid victory song"

"Hope they interfere themselves into obscurity in a year"
