The injured Wings take on the Flames in a couple minutes. The #1 defenseman tonight for Detroit is Chris Chelios, that’s how injured they are. Lilja, Lebda, Meech, Quincey and Jonathan Ericsson round out the blueline corps.
Osgood gets the start against Kiprusoff.
You’re kidding me. Chelios goes down. The Wings’ top four defenseman are out right now.
Chelios is back. Good to see.
And Ozzie making stops all over the place.
I say they put Samuelsson on defense if Chelios is seriously hurt. Is he still on the bench? (I am aware I have eyes but I am doing like, 5 billion things at once right now)
Next game, if he is still out, we keep Sammy on defense and bring up Darren Helm for GR!!!!
Holy crap. That is the goal the Flames get?
A minute into it, the second power play looks pretty good.
Chelios out again. Holy crap.
Calgary’s Pheuneuff is a marked man.
Dirty hit by Phaneuf. Anyone expect less from the Flames? At least it wasn’t their backup goalie this time.
Kiprusof being worked over good by the WINGS, but WINGED WHEELERS still scoreless.
Hello, haven’t been around or been watching much hockey lately. Tuned in to some dodgy online stream near the end of the 2nd period. Let’s hope the Wings can continue the pressure into the 3rd period, and more importantly make it pay off.
Welcome back Britishwingsfan. Hopefully you can bring the WINGS some good luck too.
Always good to hear when the Wings are actually available (via dodgy methods or not) overseas. Hopefully the Wings can pull something out here so your efforts are rewarded.
Detroit’s really playing a pretty good game. I worry just because Kipper’s been so solid.
The WINGS can’t buy a break.
Damnit, Draper! You’ve gotta finish!
Draper blows another opportunity!
Kiprusof seems to pull rabbits out of his hat against the WINGS.
Not just the Wings, he’s pretty good like that.
Kipprusoff’s been looking really solid, from what I’ve seen, and great, off air. Back to radio for me. I’ve been taunting a flames fan who’s at the game on another (non-hockey) forum, and I’m going to look like a total idiot if the Wings lose. Things aren’t looking (or rather sounding) good at the moment, the flames seem on top. But Wings Powerplay coming up…..
I’ve gotta say, I didn’t expect an injured goalie and the Griffins defense to be this strong tonight. Hard to believe that that might not be Detroit’s weakness.
Yes, but the WINGS have controlled the play this period — have dominated in fact — with many scoring chances but just can’t get that break to put the puck in the net.
Yes, been hard to tell. Last chance saloon now.
Power play could make things interesting.
Edit: But not enough.
In the end… You’re f*cking kidding me. The Walking Wounded Wings allow a single goal, a fluky one at that, and still can’t get the win. I watched the game so I believe it, but if I saw this score without watching the game I’d be shocked.
Tough one for the WINGS, but they played well. Babcock should feel good about the effort, especially the young D.
Urgh, just one of those games I suppose. Great effort though. Wish I could be making my 100th post in better circumstances.
Will be interesting if CHELIOS is out for tomorrow’s game in Vancouver.
