Badly outplayed for the last 35min. 

 

You're high if you think they got outplayed in OT.  I think a good case could be made they were better in the third too, their second period defo. sucked though.

The EP shot in overtime shudve gone in . Unlucky , but man that would be 11 in ten games.  Pretty crazy he is only two behind pastrnak for the league lead with less games played .

Meh, with Brock in there along with Sutter or Beagle to free up Bo from being stapled to all the face offs i have a feeling this one would have gone our way.

 

I wonder how Virtanen would look on EPs line....

I was watching the Red Wings broadcast and they kept comparing Elias to Datsyuk. Also said he would easily go number 1 overall if they re-drafted his year again.

I watched most of the Fox Sports Detroit feed...some observations that I thought were interesting...

 

Play-by-play Ken Daniels and colour commentator Mickey Redmond talk about Pettersson before the puck drop..."he would go #1 today" Daniels says (and repeats in overtime). They definitely seem aware of Dekey Pete's talent. At the same time the banner displays Pettersson's weight as 161 lbs but there is zero talk of his weight or body-build by the broadcasters. They talk about Elias' talent a lot in the first period even before the eventual goal. They concede that the league may as well just give him the Calder trophy now.

 

1st Intermission...Hosts John Keating and Darren Eliot discuss Pettersson and the goal. Keating mentions a hometown nickname "the Alien" and says "he is better than advertised". Eliot says the goal is "Gretzky-like".

 

2nd Intermission...Keating recognizes Canucks are on the first game of a road trip "that is going to last forever".

 

3rd period...The topic of Fortnite was an intro topic after a tv timeout...they contrasted (non-judgmentally) how the Canucks players have banned it but Detroit's young players love it.

 

Redmond says, regarding Stetcher, "that kid has got a good game". Daniels replies "yep".

 

Redmond says, "can you imagine if we could get a guy like that to play with Larkin...sheesh" (referring to Pettersson).

 

Overtime...they rave about the quality of Pettersson's dangerous 2-on-1 shot.

 

Shoot-out...Redmond amazed by deke of Pettersson even though shot was saved.

 

Overall, the commentary was very complimentary of Pettersson and fair in it's narrative of the Canucks.

These guys are excellent. Really good crew they have on fox sports Detroit. I'll be watching more games on that feed. 

 

Is this the same "Fox News" network that spews lies and spreads bs in the US opposing democrats?

good first half of the game, didn't do much in the rest. I hope Eriksson is taken off the Pettersson line.

Loui set up the first goal and miraculously stayed onside and kept the play alive on the second goal that was challenged. If you're gonna hate on him do it after a game he does nothing (which does happen once in a while)... But this game he was solid.

For some reason red wings announcer was praising goldobin throughout the game

I noticed this too. The away feeds usually talk highly about Goldy.

Were they praising him for missing the net every time he shoots?  ^_^

Love the maturity and poise of this kid. This attitude will propel us to big things in the future.

Hard to tell it was in Detroit because the Wings played the game like a textbook road game . Weather the early storm, slow the game to a crawl and chip away at the lead.

 "Nice shot for sure. Really good. He's got a hell of a shot. There's a lot of good players in the league that have great shots. He's got a good wrister, he's got a good slapper. He happened to have time and space and took advantage of it." - Green on Pettersson's goal
