This is the weirdest GDT ever.
Anyway, after the first 10 minutes of this game I was convinced this was going to be another egg of a game but they proved me wrong. They came out in the second and really put together some good hockey for once. The third was impressive as well, especially defensively. There were moments throughout that I thought they got a bit too passive and seemed to just let the Wings skate into the zone but that's really my only negative from the game. Allen played adequately; not great but made some good saves.
Berglund, Stewart and Oshie specifically stood out to me tonight. Impressive games for them, especially Oshie. His play mirrored almost exactly how Backes said guys needed to start playing. For the most part everyone played more as a team, were more physical and aggressive and played with a sense of urgency that's been seriously lacking lately. They attacked the puck harder, skated harder and the positive results came from it.
