I don't think he'll be back in this series at all. He was injured at some point in the BJ series and then had 8 days off before game 1 and he still wasn't well? Forget it, he's done. Wings have to rise above w/out him. There's no other way to cut it.

Yes it is absolutely. 2007 Wings down 2-1 to Sharks and 30 seconds from going down 3-1 playing in San Jose. The Wings score, win in OT and rattle off 3 straight wins for a 6-4 series victory.

I see 3 straight Wings victories....

Do or do not. There is no try

if that is the case, then it's time to shake things up and go with a 5.5 d-man roster... and I say 5.5 meaning dress both Lebda and Meech and have them split duties, with other guys taking more ice time

for example:
Cycle 1 -
Lidstrom-Ericsson
Kronwall-Stuart
Lebda-Lidstrom

Cycle 2 -
Lidstrom-Ericsson
Kronwall-Stuart
Meech-Stuart

Cycle 3 -
Lidstrom-Ericsson
Kronwall-Stuart
Lebda-Ericsson

Cycle 4 -
Lidstrom-Ericsson
Kronwall-Stuart
Meech-Kronwall

and repeat...

Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond said last night that Ralfi won't play game 4 but is expected to return on Sunday's game 5.

No they didn't. They said he was unlikely to play in Game 4, but that there was no official news that he wasn't going to either.

And that's because he turned into an alien and flew to Jupiter for a couple of days. It's a long trip so he won't make it back until the game five.

Rewatch the FSN game, obvioulsy you missed it. They said "he will not play in game 4 but is expected to return for Sunday's game 5".

Here's some positive thinking. The Wings don't lose another game in this series. They are MUCH better than this team and as soon as they crack Hiller, its blowout city. Losing like this should only fire up the Wings even more.

It was just one game, not the season.

Ya im over the last game now, and i firmly believe the redwings will win the next three games. I expect them to play out of their minds cuz their so pissed off. I know when i played mad i played so much better.

He may be out, but its not official yet.

I highly doubt that. The situation is more serious than we think right now. If we do not split the games on Thursday, we will be f***ed up again. We mentioned again and again that this team can be better than this but never happened. If the team can be better but they do not become better, there is no point of saying how the things go.

Besides, it is not just one game. It is the PLAYOFF. If we lose ANY GAME IN THE PLAYOFF, we have to take it seriously. I know the Wings are good on road but something has to be done. If we lose this series with this much amount of talent, huge amount of problem is on babcock. He has done nothing this series so far. What the f*** is the point of keeping the line which has zero chemistry?

By the way, heres some realistic positive thinking.

Anaheim's #6 Dman is fricking Sheldon Brookbank. Their #7 is an injured Brett Hedican. They traded away Huskins and Montador at the deadline, and unless I'm mistaken, their new #7 is Mikkelson. A 21 year old rookie who has 34 games of NHL experience.

An Anaheim squad that was once 3 paird deep, is now just 2 pairs deep. Say hello to a Brookbank-Mikkelson bottom pairing. In other words - say hello to Pronger and Niedermayer running on empty for half the game, since theres no way Carlyle is putting out those 2 together on the ice when we have 3 lines that can score.

If there ever was a turning point in a series against the Anaheim Ducks, its when they FINALLY have key injuries to their D. If we grind out a W in game 4, and get Rafalski back for game 5, with Wiz still out, this series is ours.

younguns, that's at best a wash when we have the brutal lebda-chelios pairing. rafalski better be half-dead to be out of the lineup for game 4.

Injuries happen, I don't think any team doesn't have to deal with them ever in the playoffs. That being said Raf coulda made the difference in game 2 and 3, but so could the players on the ice. Expect a whole 60 minutes in game 4, because this starting up in the 3rd period s*** isn't cutting it, and this is pretty much our last stand because we won't be coming back if we get down 3 - 1. It's true though, regardless of our halfassed effort last night, OT still shoulda been forced, but that's that, and the Wings need to forget about it and play a full game tomorrow.

Wings in 6!
