nice gdt as usual. I am glad to see Ozzie is in net again. He needs more starts. Maybe get some consistency. Here's to 60 minutes and a win by more than one goal.
lighten up people, it's the internet!

thumbup.gif Very nice GDT as usual. I'm REALLY looking forward to a win here. The Avs are the team I most love to hate.

Go Wings!

"The way it's going I'm just trying to push onward and play better and better," Osgood said. "I'm close to where I want to be but I'm not over that hump yet."

Conklin made three straight starts before Osgood returned to the net on Saturday at Phoenix. After allowing four goals on 28 shots through overtime, Osgood denied the final three shootout attempts to lift the Red Wings to a 5-4 victory.

"The type of competitor he is, he hasn't been happy to see the other goalie out there the last three nights," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "We're always trying to get his competitive juices flowing. He's a competitor. He's a pro and he's one of the best of all time."


--

Let's hope Ozzie puts a string of wins together to get that confidence back up; he's shown he's a competitor and he can do it again.

According to the Avs boards, Raycroft may be getting the start in net

Who's their actual #1 these days anyway? Budaj? Or has Raycroft supplanted him? I haven't been keeping tabs on the Avs too much these days (with the exception of Sakic doing boneheaded stuff off the ice tongue.gif).

I might be here for the game tomorrow night, but it's not likely. Still dragging more stuff from the department; gotta dismantle our entertainment center and get it out here, plus get myself some more clothes. tongue.gif

I think Budaj has been getting the majority of the starts but neither one is playing exceptionally well.

What kind of pathetic defending Cup champion team can't beat a team 14-3? If the Wings don't win by that score tonight, you can kiss the Cup goodbye.

Get your s*** together, Wings.

He is Lilja.

I forgot to add that he will also have 34 blocked shots.

I hope Ozzie gets the start here, he played relatively well against the coyotes and so he needs some games to build on.

I hope hossa has a good game as well, he needs one. I'd like to see hudler on the line with Franzen and Hossa for at least the first, and see how he does.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I'm so excited for this game. Not only because of it's potential, but because I'll finally catch it on HD television rather than buffering-right-before-someone-scores internet streaming. Hoorah!
