Should be an easy win for us... Meaning we lose in a shoot out or OT. Yes, just full of optimism tonight.

One advantage of being on the West Coast is you get first look at the GDT in all its magnificence biggrin.gif

So here's the big difference between the Wings and Oilers that I see.

On the Oilers, the top pair of defensemen is Steve Staios and Ladislav Smid. On the Wings, a friggin' legend of the game is listed as 3rd pairing.

Folks, this is not a playoff team the Wings are facing tonight.

When has that gotten in our way? It's an excellent chance to play down tonight. wink.gif

I think they'll handle the Oilers like Phoenix though: Keep it close, then shut it down in the 3rd.

If Malts repeats slicing pucks past Dwayne-O then all the better!

No, it's definitely excitement.

We already lost twice to a non-playoff team this year

Zetterberg is going to continue to dominant and post another 2 goals and 2 assists. While Holmstrom will deflect a shot from the point off his skate and Refs will call goalie interfernece and he gets a penalty and the goal is waived off.....
WIng win big.

Red WIngs: 6 (Zetterebrg 2, Rafalski, Cleary, Franzen, Rex)
Oilers: 2 (Penner, Horcoff)
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Franzen, Drake join lineup; Hasek, Kronwall still out

Update from practice Monday in Edmonton:

Wings coach Mike Babcock said Johan Franzen (sprained knee) and Dallas Drake (fractured cheekbone) will be inserted into the lineup for Tuesday's game. He said Matt Ellis and Aaron Downey are likely to be scratched. Franzen will center the fourth line with Drake and Kopecky as Babcock wants to keep intact the No. 2 scoring line with Valtteri Filppula, Mikael Samuelsson and Jiri Hudler. At least, that was the plan after practice.

Babcock was surprised that Niklas Kronwall (groin) didn't practice Monday, saying Kronwall told him the day before that he'd be able to go. He won't play Tuesday. Groin injuries tend to linger, so it wouldn't be surprising if he took a week or so off.

Chris Osgood will start in net. Dominik Hasek (irritated hip) didn't skate. Hasek said he might skate in the next couple of days, but he definitely won't play on this trip. Hasek didn't seem too concerned about the injury, saying he doesn't believe it'll be long-term. The way Osgood is playing, there's certainly no reason to rush Hasek.

Kronwall out for a second consecutive game, it's starting again people!

Detroit $1.45 favourites, those odds aren't worth it.

Something to keep in mind, the Red Wings have just two wins at Edmonton since January 1999.

Another interesting stat about tonight's game - oldest team, Wings, versus the youngest, Edmonton.
When it comes to the physical statistics of the game, the numbers don't seem to add up for the Red Wings. On average, the Wings are the oldest (30.5 years), smallest (72 inches) and lightest (195 pounds) team in the NHL. While 45-year-old Chris Chelios and 42-year-old Dominik Hasek distort the Wings' average age, there's no arguing with the tape measure. Wings players are on average 18.5 pounds lighter than the heaviest team (San Jose, 213.5 pounds) and almost 2 1/2 inches shorter than the tall trees in Washington (74.4 inches). Edmonton is the NHL's youngest team with an average age of 26.6 years.

Close game with a rusty 4th line.

Wings 4 (Homer, Draper, Lids, Flip-EN)
Oilers 2 (2 random greasy puckers)

Detroit are due for a loss. And they will take Edmonton lightly. Lazy effort. Rusty 4th line. Osgood has a bad game.

5-3 Oilers.
