  1. The Wings go for their third win in a row today and will be doing it with a couple lineup changes.

    Valtteri Filppula looks to be able to play today after a leg injury kept him out of Friday’s practice but Tomas Holmstrom will be out with a groin injury.

    Nicklas Lidstrom could return to the lineup, he’ll take the pregame skate and unless there’s a setback either Meech or Ericsson will be scratched to make room for him. If he can’t go, both of those players will be in, meaning someone else will be a scratch (I’d guess Lilja, as always).

    Darren McCarty is with the team but won’t play, he’s unable to even practice with a rib injury.

    I’ll be at the game so there probably won’t be too many in-game comments from me. Depends on how things go.

  2. You’re at the game? D: How insulting! I begged for tickets the past four months to go to this game T_T

    Oh well, have fun :)

    Lots of injuries again, oh my.

  3. Mickey Redmond tells it how it is with the, “How about playing hockey here?” statement.

    Lots of penalties. Franzen converts one of the many calls into a goal :) Woo!

    Radek Bonk may be the coolest name ever :)

  4. WINGS with opportunities on the Power Play.

    Noticed lots of empty seats today.

    To think I could have been gracing the Joe with my presence then! :) (kidding)

    Hudler makes it 2-love. Was that a powerplay goal? I wasn’t paying attention. Lots of criscrossing across the net. He ‘got the monkey off his back’. Coolest phrase ever x]

  6. Kronwall, Filppula and Hudler team up …. Hudler breaks out of the scoreless drought.

    Yeahahaha.. :)

    Yeah, I’m thinking there are tickets available. You just have to know where to get them. Too cold lately to go down early and try to pick them up outside JLA before the game.

  8. The tickets were a gift so I have no idea exactly when they were purchased.

    Wings looked good in the first. Not a lot of chances for Nashville. Power plays helped. Converting on them helped more.

    Downey and Tootoo out against each other for one shift and it got chippy. Surprise.

    About 75 photos taken so far, no idea what’ll turn out.

    Awesome :)

    I hope there’s a fight.

  10. Mason is really solid tonight. WE NEED GOALS! :) I wish I was alive when the wings had that, oh…what was it? 15-0 game?

  11. Both goalies looking stellar in the latter half of the 2nd period.

    I’m hoping the WINGS consider that a 2-0 lead is one of the hardest leads to maintain.

    No break downs here please.

    I do recall a 10-0 win against Montreal (Patrick Roy in the nets for the Canadians) in ’95. I believe that game was the stimulus to move Roy to Colorado.

    I’ve heard about a few like that with Roy. Hmm.

    :) That story that Redmond told just lightened my spirits. I don’t think Hasek would believe he’s Gretzky, though.

    Woo! Stuart! Yay! He was realllly deep out there.

  14. No replays here…

    Hasek’s delay of game penalty seemed deflected and he dove on the inteference call.

    Stuart with the goal!

  15. closer than it should have been, the last two Nashville goals shouldn’t have happened. A win is a win though.

    Agreed.

    Did you get nice pictures?

  17. Haven’t gone through the pictures yet. Just got done watching the replay.

    Corrections on some of my thoughts from watching live… Hasek definitely threw the puck over the glass, but he didn’t dive when he got hit. And Hamhuis added a second shot.

    The holding call on Kronwall was absolute crap. An evener, since they went both ways throughout the game.

    Hasek made some key stops but couldn’t control the rebound at important times. I’m not worried about blowing so much of the lead, that’s what you build leads for (in games and in the standings). All that matters is that Nashville didn’t score that last goal.

    The arena was more full than games I went to earlier this season. The two seats next to me were open from the end of the first on, though. I don’t know how to convince people who don’t really care to stick around for the whole game.

    I have an idea! They stay at home at watch the games comfortably and leave the seats for people who want to watch it and obsess over every last detail of the play. (And the fact they’re in the Joe! Watching rich people play hockey!)

    I noticed that when I was at the Columbus game last year, too. Lots of people leaving after the first period.
