One of my customers is an Avs fan. We both wished each other good luck for tonight's game. Then we both smirked and snorted.

Wings take this one because Pavel was out last time we played them.
Wings: Hank, Homer, Raffy
Avs: Hejduk (sp?), Wolski x 2

Shootout: Dats and Williams score for Det. Hejduk for Col.

Wings win 4-3 (SO)

Colorado is really beat up but they keep rolling, don't they? I am thinking Tucker is out, as well after the hit he took last night from Ruutu. link

Anyway, the Wings better be awake tonight, or they are going to get their butts whooped.

5-4 Wings win in OT

No prediction since it doesn't help. Just play 60 minutes of defensive hockey and help Howard win.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

6-1 Wings. Hank finally gets the scoring going and nets a hat-trick. Datsyuk with 4 assists and a goal. Lidstrom and Leino with one each.

Wings Lose because our D isnt up to snuff and playing like dung!!! and Howard is in net!

I'm hoping for the best, but my confidence in this team is certainly waning. Having Howard back there doesn't help that in the least. The highlight will be having May back in. The Avs will have confidence and the home crowd going into the arena tonight, which also doesn't bode particularly well for the boys in white and red. The dark clouds are gathering...

Having sucked at predictions for my entire life... I'd like to hope for a good 60 (or more) minutes of hockey from the Wings... win or lose. I have yet to see a game this year where they played their hearts out. If they lose when doing that, I have no issues. But if they put 40 minutes of quality on the ice and tank again... I think management needs to look at what can be done to motivate that hasn't been tried already. We are quickly closing in on the 10 game mark. It's not the time for panic, but it's certainly a reasonable barometer for the team's play this season.

LETS GO RED WINGS!


Regards,
Jeff

Wings play good for two periods, in the third the meltdown begins, defense increase turovers by 150% and Howard lets in a softie or two. Wings lose 5-3 last puck empty netter

Ok last time I did this it seemed to work...

Avs win 4-2. Colorado prove to be too tough at home, prepared to play the full 60. Rookies O'Reilly and Duchene continue from where they left off against us and cause havoc. Howard will suffer yet another loss and more pressure will follow.

Zetterberg and Cleary score for Detroit.

On the contrary. The team plays the whole 60 minutes due to lack of confidence in the goalie. My prediction stands.

Agreed, because that's a great mindset for them to be in. And if the Wings play 60 minutes - especially the last five - they can win this game. Ain't no doubt about it.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

We won't know reality till it happens. Cup is at least half full. Gotta be. For their sakes', not ours.

Howard is in so I say Avs win 4-2. "Bad bounce" and a "would like to have back" goals are scored for the Avs.

Such melodrama! Wings, just hold on to the lead that you are clearly capable of getting (game after game). 3-3-2 and you don't expect a win? I'm sure they do or they wouldn't be playing the game...
