Hat trick for Mursak.

But really I feel this kid will find the twine if he keeps up that play. Should be a nice bounce back style game tonight. As normal no predictions from me because they have all been horses***. Wings should win.....

EDIT: LET'S GO OZZIE!!!! 401 and counting!!!

Go Ozzie!

I realize that I'm biased, being a huge Ozzie fan, but I am also strong in my feelings that Howard is the Goalie of the Future for this team.

Still, I feel it is in the best interest of both the goalies and the team that both start as much as possible (edge to Howard) so that Howard is fresh for the playoffs and Ozzie is ready in case of the unthinkable.

Go Wings!!!!!

Ozzie with the double hat trick and a Gordie Howe to boot!

Since Ozzie is in, that which is unmentionable just gets canceled out right???

SHHHHHHHHH

Can't even think about it.


It's nice to see Ozzie in net, I hope he has another great game. It always makes my day when I know he's playing. :D

Thanks Offsides

Please sit Miller so Tatar can play.


This x1000, Tatar has been more visible on the ice in his 2 games than Miller has been all season.

I love Miller, and i think he was a fine addition to this team, but he is one of the players that can be replaced without this team missing a beat.

Hasn't Sauce already shown he can contribute more than Miller? We have Abdelkader/Eaves/Helm/Franzen/Filppula/Draper that can easily take Miller's place on the PK.

I find sometimes the behind the scene games Babcock plays between Howard and Ozzie a little redonkulis if you ask me! Oh well Im no one to judge I guessPosted Image. I hope to christ they pull a good win out of this one LGW! As far as Vancouver goes, let them win the presidents trophy I just want the chance to smash them in the playoffs. As well as san jose and chicago, then of course pittsburgh.Posted Image

YES!! GO, SWEET OZZIE!!!


See? We do have clout! Babcock knows where to come for answers! :cool:

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Exactly, so many people around here think it has to be either or. People arguing for more starts for Ozzie aren't arguing for Howard to be dumped or traded, just that he needs some time to clear his head while we see if Ozzie can continue to play big for us.

Enough Canada-USA talk, :lol: back to real hockey and the quest for a 5th Stanley Cup since 1997.

I'll be out a bit tonight, but should be home for the last half of the game. We've been playing well on the road lately and I expect it to continue. I'm saying 5-2 Wings!
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions

I figured after Jimmy got the hook last game, Ozzie would get the start tonight.

Possible that Babs wants Osgood in vs. a weak and struggling EDM offense and Howard in vs. the Flamers? just thinking out loud here

Also possible that Babs looked over Howard's performance the past month and realized he better start Ozzy some more here... just saying.

He would have a pretty good view of something like that wouldn't he?

This game is a must win. With Calgary and Vancouver up next we need these two points bad. Calgary has been playing alot better and Vancouver will be a very tough win. A full 60 mins is needed. Lets Go Wings!

Well said about the Ozzie-Howard thing. I don't know how you can really not really like both of these guys. I think Howard's got a ton of potential and I really hope he is the goalie of the future and successful at that. But that said, I think Osgood needs to be starting more and I think they need to get back to developing Howard instead of trying to force him into a starting role that he wasn't quite ready for yet. It's absolutely no knock on him as a goalie. We're really, really, really lucky to have a couple guys that aren't head cases, who are humble and team guys that seem to love playing here. It's a great situation. I just hope Babcock doesn't drive Jimmy into the ground this year. That's why I want to see a shift back to a real rotation and Osgood starting in the playoffs for Jimmy to observe so he can really be ready in 1-2 years. Patience is cool. It's why Osgood has got a lot of Cups and 400 wins. Jimmy's too talented and too good of a guy to waste by burning him out early.
-Elliot...does not panic.
