Not gonna lie, I had a feeling the game was over after they scored first. That's just the way things have gone it seems. Glad I was wrong.

I really hope the Wings run over the Oilers. For some reason it seems like they've struggled with games like Friday's.

Cleary is a solid player, doesn't really excel at any aspect of the game. If he was Bert's size, than he would be a demon in the corners, but he doesn't really have the shot, speed, playmaking or defense to stand out. He does have heart, and that can make a difference like in game 7 Anaheim last year.

Homer, on the other hand, is a maestro in front of the net, but beyond that, I think he is one of the smartest players out there. He rarely makes stupid plays ala Bert and always seems to know when to get the puck deep. Yes, his skating is a huge liability, but he can dangle a bit and is big enough to battle in the corners. Plus no one, I mean no one plays better with Nick on the point shot. I will be a sad panda when the Lidstrom/Holmstrom connection retires.

Just got back.

Our defense looked really jekyll and hyde - the giveaway that led to the Calgary goal was brutal, but they put up the brick wall on the PK. I'll take the two points, particularly in such a tight race for a playoff spot.

Yeah, the Olympic break didnt work for Dano. 1 assist and -3 in 8 games. Where in the previous 8 games before the break 3g 1a -1. He's still hitting better then anyone not named Helm or Eaves, but I think he be placed on the 3rd line. Try and get his game going in a role he's less depended on, besides it couldnt hurt putting a little pressure on Bert to pick up his production with more ice and better linemates.

If you are Babcock you know you'll get a responsible performance out of Clears. Bert is a f'ing crapshoot, but I contend that Helm should be taking some of either or both guys ice time.

“I feel like I’m healthy. It’s much more fun," Holmstrom said. “It’s so tough when you’re battling through injuries. You’re limping around and still trying to play, but it’s so (much) different when you can be healthy. When you’re healthy, every stride doesn’t hurt, then you can concentrate on playing hockey and do what you’re supposed to do out there."

Once again they won and I didn't watch the game. So i'm not watching the Oilers game on Friday either. Like I said in the last GDT i'm not watching them play again until they lose. I swear i'm bad luck. <_<

Anyone else love when Homer tapped the puck back into the net after he scored... just to make sure? AWESOME.

I can't believe that if the Wings had the amount of points they did today in the East then they would be 5th. Ah well, another day.

Gotta love the little bit of breathing room. Love the breathing room.

Wings win with a solid performance from Howard. 2-1 wings. Mule and Flip find the net.


Almost!!

I was there and f*** was that satisfying. Had a feeling that Howard PS stop was going to be key and it was. Pad the cushion gents.

Watched the game this morning. Phew. That was a nailbiter. Huge goals by Datsyuk and Holmstrom.

Wings definitely deserved the win. Calgary played nothing but defense after they went up 1-0.

I hope the guys start looking up towards 7th and higher now, leave this 8th/9th BS behind us once and for all.
