  1. Surprises could come at the morning skate but it looks like Downey remains in with Drake still out and Hasek gets the start.

    I predict that the Kroninator will open up the scoring with PP goal. Lidstrom and Datsyuk will get the assists.

  2. :o If you think they’ll snap the losing streak, say ‘Aye!’? :rolleyes: (I have no answer as of right now)

    I won’t be home for the game, but thanks to good, ol’ fashioned VCR’s I will catch up in a few days….hopefully.

    You guys try & leave me something funny to read when I get back! :o

    (Hopefully have a new name for Kronwall, also? XD)

    Here’s to wishing they’ll win and Dr. Fil and PVD will score a goal!

    (I don’t know of any game notes, sorry, but I am a horrible commentator :))

  3. Surprises could come at the morning skate but it looks like Downey remains in with Drake still out and Hasek gets the start.

  4. Wings got back on their heels and it gives the Canucks the chance to get back in the game. No panic yet but the next one is big.

  5. What bad luck for Rafalski. Off the post at one end and off his skate at the other.

  6. Had there been any rebound on that Datsyuk chance, it’s in the net with Homer on the doorstep. Good job by Luongo to hold on.

  7. Did I hear 32-17 SOG?

    Yes, but as usual most of the WINGS shots were 30-40 feeters, angle shots that Roberto will stop every time.

    The WINGS need to put some pressure in front of Luongo to win this.

  8. Homer was just robbed by Luongo.

    Cleary will go for the Hat Trick.

    CLEARY was Just ABSOLUTELY robbed by LUONGO!

    Dawg, diggity DOG

  9. Gotta leave for a late soccer game. I’d feel a lot better with the Wings up by a pair right now.

  10. Good end-to-end action.

    Officiating has been noteworthy as well, given as physical as both teams have played.

    Still would like to see CLEARY rewarded!

  11. Pretty solid game overall. Very important to come out of the slump before going out west.

    Dom played big in the shootout.

    Hey “KRONINATOR”? How will the DOMINATOR feel about that? Can’t have two “Nators” on the same team.

    Nope, no good. Lets try again.

    And whats wrong with KRONBALLS??

  13. This should be a great mental test for the WINGS. They’ve lost their last 3 games, If I recall, another loss, will be the longest losing streak since before BABCOCK took over.

    This should be interesting.

  14. Ahh, I’d missed all those bad goalie inference calls on Holmstrom, it’d been too long.
