Zetterberg Can’t Shoot…out

I am the last person I would expect to be calling out the Red Wings head coach, but desperate times call for desperate measure Mr. Mike Babcock. The Wings are on the verge of being knocked further down in the Western playoff race. They have now lost three in a row and would be in 10th right now if it weren’t for a late third period comeback against the Blues.

My issue is their shootout lineup. Henrik Zetterberg, their supposed sniped, has not scored in six straight shootout attempts. When things aren’t working, you need to make a change! I don’t care who is the highest paid or biggest name, they need goals in the shootout and Zetterberg isn’t giving them. It makes it even worse that all you need to do is deke to the right and Jimmy Howard will sprawl out on his stomach. Zetts is now 2 for 10 on the season; fellow teammate Pavel Datsyuk is 6 for 10. Johan Franzen was back in their lineup for god sakes!! Now he probably would have went fourth had they made it their, but why not put Mule in for Zetterberg….2 for 10!!!!!!!
