Detroit Red Wings at Ottawa Senators
January 12, 2008 – 7:00 PM
TV: FSN


Comments

  • It looks like Zetterberg will give it a shot tonight, after sitting out this morning with the flu. In the most-hyped game in awhile, the Wings will have their full lineup.

    Hasek gets the start with Ray Emery going for Ottawa.

    I’ve got this feeling that if you were looking for a game to bet against the Wings on, this would be it.

  • I miss getting CBC, I haven’t had it since I moved across town a couple years ago. Ken and Mickey are great but I’d love to see what someone else has to say about the officiating.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 1:01 AM
  • HASEK is looking bad ….. from my vantage point {haha} he should have had that one.

    Well, Clarke theres your two goals …

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 1:13 AM
  • Well, I do enjoy HNIC …… and CHERRY is a hoot ….. his suits … his commentary, especially the banter between him and the other guy in COACH’S CORNER (don’t know the name of the other guy) .. anyway, I feel fortunate to get another hockey channel besides FSN-D and Versus.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 1:16 AM
  • No CBC here! What a bunch of bullsh*t this is! And can we score a friggin goal?

    OMG I LOVEEEEEE DON CHERRY! XD My brother and I think he should run Canada. He should, it would be so funny.

    :) You are now the greatest person on this site :)

    This game looks like it’s lost already XD

  • By the way, the CBC HNIC play-by-play announcer reminds me alot of BUD LYNCH, the old-time RED WING announcer.

    Does anyone here remember the voice of BUD LYNCH?

    I know no one here will remember FOSTER HEWETT, the old time HNIC announcer, from many, many years ago. But, I Do. I’m talking the early to mid 60s and maybe into the early 70s. Guess that really dates me.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 1:23 AM
  • Wings defense with bad giveaways and offense isn’t getting any good shots.

    Really, really odd that the goalie interference wasn’t called when Dom got knocked down but was when it was Emery in the first.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 1:23 AM
  • If that would have been Homer hitting Emery it would have been a penalty

    Haha. Thanks. Yes he is a hoot …. Never seen so many wild suits and ties worn by anyone like he does …. and how about those shirt collars? WOW ..

    As for the game already being lost … well, unfortunately I tend to believe you. But this should be a good TEST for the RED WINGS …. Top Team in the Eastern Conference ….. OTTAWA is still only 10 points behind the RED WINGS in total points, but they’ve also played 3 games less ……so, if Ottawa can pick up 2 here and a few more in their game played deficit, they will threaten Detroit’s point standing.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 1:27 AM
  • Well, so far it definitely looks like OTTAWA wants this win more than the RED WINGS. WINGS seem off balance due to effective pressure on all sides by the SENS. The WINGS don’t go down 2 goals very often. Bad feeling here.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 1:33 AM
  • Bad feeling here.

    Just now? I got mine during the first goal. ): Usually it the Wings doing that, not the opposing team.

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 1:36 AM
  • Heatley hurt? The Wings could use all the help they can get, I hope shaken up and fine but can’t return for the night.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:09 AM
  • Way to go Raffy! Great shot, smart pass by Pavs.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:14 AM
  • RAFFIE made no mistake on that one! Gawd I love it!!!

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:15 AM
  • At least they won’t be shut out :o

    [bwahaha, I got post 28 XD I feel lucky now :o]

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:16 AM
  • Up to this point the SENS have done yeomans’ work in shutting down the WINGS machine coming thru the middle … a lot like the old NJ DEVILS trap ….. lets see how the WINGS can adjust now that they are back in the game …..

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:17 AM
  • Since the goal, the Wings look a lot better.

    Edit: Until Dom decided to go for a stroll.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:19 AM
  • HAHAH! That was awesome, how could they miss that? XD

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:20 AM
  • Since the goal, the Wings look a lot better.

    Edit: Until Dom decided to go for a stroll.

    Haha. yeah. I don’t know yet what to think of DOM ….

    Yeah lets see how the WINGS adjust and adapt. Should be an interesting final 8 minutes.

    anyone else??

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:23 AM
  • XD YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o BACK IN THE GAME!

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:24 AM
  • heheehee… Wagers now anyone.. Gawd I love it!

    hey Mathieu whadaya think now???

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:24 AM
  • Come on guys, no mistakes. All tied up now, don’t waste this.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:25 AM
  • heheehee… Wagers now anyone.. Gawd I love it!

    hey Mathieu whadaya think now???

    Haahahaha, I think I just made a total fool of myself. XD

    Luckily no one is home, i may have just screamed my soul out :o

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:25 AM
  • Huge save by Hasek! Way to go Dom!

    That one’s going on the site.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:26 AM
  • hey, hey, hey … hockey town. Hudler!

    Sens on the ropes!

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:26 AM

    Yeah Please. I missed it between the set and the fridge. Damn.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:27 AM
  • hey, hey, hey … hockey town. Hudler!

    Sens on the ropes!

    Allllliteration :)

    I think we need Dr. Fil in here to clarify things. XD I’d like to see him get a goal.

    edit;;
    You said you were watching it on the CBC? It seems like that’s one or two seconds ahead of FSND.
    What’s Don Cherry saying right now? :o

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:27 AM

    Yeah me too. You gotta love the guy.

    Cleary or Franzen or Samuelson chipping in might be just as well too.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:30 AM
  • We have ourselves a real hockey game here now.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:33 AM
  • Well, that was something the Wings didn’t want. And I think they got away with a bit there.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:34 AM
  • I saw that goal coming when Lidstrom went to the box.

    T_T

    It screamed ‘HAHAHA’ in a menacing way.

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:35 AM
  • Damnit! Hell of a screen by Spezza.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:35 AM
  • oh gawd, I should have shut up. Damn, Damn, Damn. I think the jury may still be out on HASEK. From my vantage point, he should have stopped that.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:37 AM
  • oh gawd, I should have shut up. Damn, Damn, Damn. I think the jury may still be out on HASEK. From my vantage point, he should have stopped that.

    The dude’s almost 43 though, I mean, it shouldn’t be an excuse but no one’s that great all the time.

    (he is still my favorite if I have any say)

    ._. What a sad day. (This just makes me mad, why couldn’t they do this to Anaheim in the playoffs? >:|)

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:38 AM
  • damn .. great game. Great come back by the WINGS.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:39 AM
  • oh gawd, I should have shut up. Damn, Damn, Damn. I think the jury may still be out on HASEK. From my vantage point, he should have stopped that.

    Even I can’t blame Dom there, like I said, hell of a screen by Spezza.

    3-2 Ottawa is actually the score I predicted earlier when asked elsewhere. I wasn’t going to mention it because I didn’t want it to come true.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 2:40 AM

    Well, looking at it again, SPEZZA did make a good screen. LIDSTROM in the box too, which is a rarity.

    I’ll give DOM the benefit of the doubt, He earlier made a game saver ….

    I’ll say it again, This was a great game, at a great time in the season. Lets see how each team adjusts to the other’s great play.

    We may see both teams again on the rink together at the same time.

    Hey Clark … you were close! hahah.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 2:45 AM
  • Hey Clark … you were close! hahah.

    Since you were so eager to bet people, did you? :o

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 2:46 AM
  • Hey Clark … you were close! hahah.

    Since you were so eager to bet people, did you? :o

    Wasn’t me, my mom’s boyfriend was asking and that’s what I told him. At least he won, I should have asked for a cut.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 3:56 AM
  • Nice pre-game ceremony for Yzerman going into Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame…Don’t see that in the other team’s barn too often.

    Stormo January 13, 2008 12:09 PM

    Do you wanna wager on this one? I’m game if you are.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 12:10 PM
  • So much for trying to take a lead ._.

    XD Ouch. 1:10 in. Oh well, this will be entertaining I’m sure.

    Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 January 13, 2008 12:17 PM
  • Looks like this could be a taste of the finals :)

    SYfanSD January 13, 2008 12:32 PM
  • Do you wanna wager on this one? I’m game if you are.

    I stick to table games, I hate betting on sports.

    Mickey’s having fun with the weak calls. With the hooks that have been called, I’m surprised they didn’t call interference when Cleary was held up after dumping it in on that second Sens PP.

    Clark Rasmussen January 13, 2008 12:33 PM
  • For once the stupid calls seem to be going against both teams. I have to admit Mickey has been pretty funny tonight!

    SYfanSD January 13, 2008 12:37 PM
  • We need to capitalize on this one

    SYfanSD January 13, 2008 12:43 PM

    OK …. you would have had to give me an Ottawa win by two goals anyway. I only say this because of the SENS PP goal after only a minute into the game.

    and, as for the calls so far, MICKEY R is 100% correct —- pure garbage.

    But, at least it looks they are calling them both ways! So far at least, anyway.

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 12:44 PM
  • Hehehe. MICKY is quite animated tonight and rightfully so …… how about that SENATOR taking down the WING (not sure who it was) just as the WING PP ended????

    Jeepers.

    Bounces in front of EMERY are not going the WINGS way so far either

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 12:47 PM
  • Finally a delay of game call that goes in our favor.

    SYfanSD January 13, 2008 12:49 PM
  • Is anyone watching this on CBC? I have on on both FSN-D and CBC. Its interesting the differences in commentary …hehehe

    skyguy52 January 13, 2008 12:52 PM
  • What goof-ball Don Cherry is … hehe. But you have to love him too, especially his attire …. He wore some multi colored suit during the broadcast a few weeks ago. Looked liked a used car saleman to the third degree. Too funny.
