I have a feeling this year is the year for the Wings, but I'm still nervous. Nashville gave us a run for our money and they're not giong to go away quietly. Add in the return of Legwand, and a player returning in mid-series is usually a boost for that team.

Nashville is going to play a lot harder so I hope the Wings do, too. Don't lift your foot off the accelerator!

Nice GDT Aflac, thanks!

No predictions today, but I would like to see Abdelkader play.

You do that, you go to the box, you know.
Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know.
And then you get free.

A big yay for matinee playoff games which I can watch from the comfort of my own PC smile.gif

I'm confident the Wings are gunna take control of the series with another win. I'll be back sometime in the 1st period once I get the kids in bed.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I really can't wait for this one! Wings know the Preds will come out even stronger, so they gotta reply right back!

No predictions, lets just get a win!

Great GDT as always aflac. I say the Wings win again today, I dont care how they do it but just that they do. Also, I hope the Wings, certain ones especially, welcome Legwand back with a few good hits.

LETS GO WINGS!!!

The first game was all us...hopefully it is the same in this second game.

I'm calling it...Datsyuk is due...he gets the game winner, and the Franzenstien will score again.

Predators 11, Red Wings 2

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's radical strategy of dressing only 8 skaters for the game drew major criticism. "We need to rest our key players. We can't go far in the playoffs if our best players aren't healthy." Reports that Babcock responded to comments from the press corps that the playoffs had already begun by looking disbelievingly at an NHL calender, turning white and storming out of the dressing room without further comment could not be confirmed.

Discussing his team's success, Nashville coach Barry Trotz said the key to the series will ultimately come down to injuries. Pressed to explain in more detail, Trotz offered, "We need to injure their best players so they can't play. We think that will give us a big edge."

I'm going back to my 14-2 predictions. Except this time I can't say "x" points for Datsyuk to break 100.

I am predicting that secondary scoring will hit this game...a goal from either Hudler, Draper, or Sammy...just a hunch...
This is going to be an intense one today

Go Wings!
