Red Wings – Ducks Pregame Notes

This pregame report is brought to you by hand-me down-snowblowers. Hand-me-down snowblowers, clearing my driveway since about 45 minutes ago.

Mike Babcock did his equivalent of tearing his team a new one in the press today. You’re not gonna get any argument from me.

It looks like the Wings will use the same lineup they lost in Boston with, save for Chris Osgood getting the start. Hopefully that’s not a pun.

Tomas Holmstrom and Chris Chelios practiced but will not return tonight, instead aiming for Thursday.

Anaheim’s starting goalie is unknown. Jonas Hiller has filled in remarkably for Jean-Sebastien Giguere but faced a heavy workload last night in Raleigh. Giguere has been on the ice only once in the last week, having had to left the team to deal with a family issue.
