And and it doesn't make you -- to join us once again from the Joseph and activity there was injury added to the insult us after the loss of -- policy remains were costly afternoon for the way. Yes obviously you wanna get the two points when you lose to players like that and that's probably it's something to do with that do not to join McDonald by any stretch but you're down to five defenseman. And both teams are missing star forwards in that Datsyuk continues respectively but the Red Wings without Lidstrom and then you lose Kendall and Chicago was a smothering defensive game. Were I thought they were a little bit more desperate that the Red Wings today having Gregory didn't play a bad game by any means but you know you didn't get a lot of scoring chances. Twelve to seven after forty minutes does not. Very -- normally if Detroit is coming their quality scoring chances they like to be up room for the through -- game -- Cleveland was very solid but look at this look at the way through these. -- in the clocked no pun intended on the backside of me didn't didn't give Detroit a lot from the improvement to go back with the defense fits with him and it might not. If you look at Pete did a really good job that he was very active but -- -- to the ice they were very physical front every. At all at all did a pretty darn good job to. To shut Detroit down from getting a whole ton of quality scoring chances here. Handed -- McDonald I mean beat number one but really Chicago didn't have a whole lot of chance to know they didn't. This was. Kind of what the I don't put the kind of game it was Chicago -- they're looking over their shoulder thinking we got to get some points longer and other. And they're playing desperate right now that they -- and may not make the playoffs all. They played like it here today they played much much. Better as a team I think defensively their defense coming back forwards every just solid enough to get a chance to win and they took advantage of their chances and again. Red -- power play. Zero for four today -- the other hole we're -- three for thirty on the last thirty chances they got to get that thing fixed in a game like this. Power play goal. You and Chicago it's our political heroes it'll last seven games around 38%. And again when Kindle goes down and you don't have Lidstrom meeting up the minutes on defense that means others played more. And let's look at the minutes and Brendan Smith plus five minutes and potential couple in their -- to fight that he set up. Well normally you wouldn't see anybody -- 27 minutes and you see both -- all white with that. And twenty that he was going Brad -- well I mean yeah you go down no one man short and we hope that that's not anything serious for Kindle as well they really. Have a -- the bugaboo right now and we don't know what's up with Jimmy Howard -- Pomona to the first period. That's in that suit there I don't think we're gonna Steelers from on Tuesday I don't think so you're never old -- they -- have Doug Jennings back up here before you don't against. Yet after the once the trade deadlines faster only allowed four waiver call ups it's for call ups in the American Oxley it's weird except in emergency situations. And that's what -- was but Bertuzzi could go and so the Red Wings haven't used them but that's strange you don't wanna be running into too many injuries this. No you don't there's nothing you can do about it -- just got to you know you get -- hold your breath I mean they're gonna have every team has them all your normally has them all year. And right now it just seems like it -- another Edmonton or get animals into.
