I perdict that the Red Wings get at least one 5 on 5 goal,and control the play all night.

Puck handeling is key for the Wings,no turn overs.


Hope you're right about the 5 on 5 goal just to shut up the cocky Ducks (Pronger).

But my point was we wouldn't break out til game 4. (as we did with the Sharks.)

^^^ yup, had 5 hrs of sleep, woke up at 4am from excitement and anticipation. I shouldn't be up... just had to come to the boards and follow up with fellow Wings' Fans.

I totally don't have a life during the Post-Season. I blow off everything responsible just to absorb hockey. But it's worth it :thu:

In addition to Kunitz out for the rest of the playoffs (broken bone in hand and underwent surgery) Shannon is questionable for tonight (per Home Ice-XM this morning). Having a winger like Kunitz out is not good for the Duck.

The Duck has had major problems taking stupid penalities away from the puck. I predict they will come out trying to hit a little too much tonight and start the stupid penality spiral (happens in front of the home crowd a lot). Add the motivation of Prongers comments (someone please find the picture of Yzerman leveling him from the playoffs a few years ago) and Calder finally being replaced (nothing against his playing prior to the injury but the broken hand is really showing) and I predict a different Wings team hitting the ice in Honda Center (liked it better when it was called "The Pond").

Go Wings! Here's to a full 60 minute effort, fewer turnovers, lots of hits, some magnificent play by Dats and Z, a Kopecky goal and most importantly of all: a Well Refereed Game.

It's going to be a long day of anticipation...
Hudler!!


"If you didn't know him, and saw him without hockey gear, you'd never suspect Datsyuk to be a world-class athlete. He walks a bit hunched over. His gait is somewhat crab-like, almost like he's still skating, even on dry land.

But put him on skates and he's Houdini on ice. He is not the fastest skater by a long shot, but there can't be too many who are stronger or more flexible. Checking him has to feel like checking Gumby. You might get a piece of him, but he bounces away, moving faster thanks to the leverage he gained from your check."

I expect another low scoring game, unless the refs eat their whistles again. If that happens, who knows how many goals the Ducks will "score"? So far, it's safe to say we're not going to get many breaks in the officiating in this series.

Stay out of the box, if you can, Wings. And for heaven's sake, get down there and pester the crap out of Giguere, lots of shots. He's had it way too easy so far in this series for my liking. I will be interested to see how Kopecky does in his first game back, too.

Draper with the game winner. I don't know why I think that, I just do! tongue.gif

Alright tough game tonight but we still should be able to come out ahead. I have a funny feeling that we will win tonight in regulation.

Powerplay will be the key once again.

Good luck guys goal.gif clap.gif

We just have to play hard and win battles down low and I think we will be set. We have to keep capitalizing on the pp. I think we will win tonight, but then again I have two colours in my vision field, red and white. I am so happy that Calder is out tonight, we are better off with someone healthy in the lineup. GO WINGS GO!

Don't make me keep saying this guys... you are all ADULTS!!!!!

PLAY A FUL 60 F'ing MINUTES!!!!!! You flew across the country for this... At the very least play a full 60 to justify your time and fuel it took to get there!!!!!!11!!1 laugh.gif

They may dominate us 5-5 but don't under estimate our ability to get stupid penalties and whoop their ass short handed!

I don't know about tonight yet. Detroit is lucky that the series is where it is, the Ducks have really outplayed us, and they are the first team to be outshooting us in the playoffs. I think that Kopecky will add some more physicality, P.S. this means no Calder next year in my eyes. And if the Wings can throw some big checks early, and control the puck more than they have been I think we will win. THere have been too many turnovers, especially in our own zone, for me to be too comfortable with the series.

Wings need big checks, smarter defense, and to get back to puck posession and I say 3-1 Wings (Hasek is going to want to lower theat GAA again)

should be a great game tonight. I can really see Bert actually stepping it up a gear and doin sumthin tonight, I'm expecting a goal from him. Kopecky, I think he will get his name on the game sheet but have a feeling it'll be a penalty, maybe a roughing.. might just try too hard to be a presence out there right away... either way i see the wings taking this one, goal.gif game winner will be from draper goal.gif

TO ALL FANS:
The game day thread is for pre-game discussion only. If you want to discuss movies or how fortunes were made, please take it to the water cooler and keep the thread on track.
Now I have a pizza to get, so carry on.

GO WINGS!!
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
