Detroit Red Wings at Edmonton Oilers
October 30, 2007 – 9:30 PM


  • Johan Franzen and Dallas Drake are expected to return to the lineup for tonight’s matchup with the Oilers. I’ve got no idea what roster moves the Wings are making to get them off the IR but I assume they’re putting Hasek or Kronwall on that list, since Dom isn’t going to play for the rest of the trip which means Howard needs to stay up.

    If Howard stays up and they want to give him a start, I would recommend doing it tonight rather than Thursday in Calgary. The Oilers come across as the weaker team to me. Now that I’ve said that, they’ll probably score seven.

    Bill over at A2Y thinks that Zetterberg’s point scoring streak will end tonight just because of all the attention he’s been getting in the media. I won’t argue against it but I’ll be pleasantly surprised if he does notch a point.

    Game time is 9:30 PM which means I won’t be catching the first period live. I’ll catch up via the miracle of DVR starting at 10:00, assuming the drugs they gave me for sawing into my jaw don’t knock me out by then.

  • Yay :).

    Not as late as last night(your cat won’t be wondering, eh?) x]

    I’m afraid to say anything that will jinx the team tonight, so I dunno. XD

    &;; I also think it’s funny the poll on the front page is unanimous :D

  • My DVRd copy of the game got me caught up with realtime just as the second period started. Could have skipped everything up to that point, not much happening so far.

  • The cat is batting at me already and it’s only 10:30.

    Second Oilers penalty is a little weak.
