Who will Oiler them?

Also, I didn't realize the 2006 Wings created a new hockey phrase.

The leafs will.

Wings win 6-2

Z gets 2 assists.

Ends up being -2 on the night.

Meh... Hedman is one of the tallest defensemen in the league, and he barely caught that clearing attempt. If it were 90% of the other defensemen in the league, that puck would have been out.


But he did catch it. So it was pretty brutal. It's not like Rafalski didn't know a 6'6 monster was standing between him and a clear sheet of ice.

Roflski take way too much s*** around here but that play hurt to watch.

all it means is he got 2 pp points and was on the ice for 2 non pp points

8th in the league in points though! :o

I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Don't short change the man, tied for seventh (f*** that games in hand s***). ;)

His goal scoring is way down but he's on pace to smash his previous mark for assists. In fact he's third in the league in assists right now, if you can believe it. As long as the puck keeps going into the net, I'm okay with it.

That might have been the biggest I've ever seen in all the years I've been here. On the road we've had some unbelievable crowds, but tonight, that was a good crowd.

Just looked at the box score for the game.

Anyone else realize that Howard made 38 saves tonight? Sure as hell didn't feel that way to me (which speaks to better defense on our part - causing weaker/poorer shots by Tampa).

It felt to me like he had a pretty easy night. The 2 goals definitely weren't his fault at all.

Wow! That is pretty amazing. It seemed like we were in control of the entire game. TB got a surge in the second when they scored those two goals, but aside from that, it felt like we were on their end the whole night.

So happy I got to see this game. Thank God Center Ice was doing a free preview this week (although I can do without seeing Crosby score on Howard every single freaking time there's a commercial break. "If Crosby lights the lamp in Pittsburgh, will anyone in the rest of the world give crap?"). It was a fun game to watch. My three year old was up at 5am watching the replay. :lol:

I agree w/ xtrememachine1, howard was a STUD on the ice last night. I did get a little worried during the 2nd period when tampa had those two back to back goals, but my fear was completely dissapated when our wings stepped up huge and put another 4 goals on net. Best part was the octopus toss lol!

Did anyone else see Babcock and Hudler after Datsyuk's second goal? Babcock was in his ear on the bench and he was getting kind of intense. I couldn't tell if he was pissed or just fired up after that sick goal.

I'm actually kind of annoyed I missed this game, but I'm still happy to see the Wings managed to win, and win big. I'm sure a small part of it was probably strange for Steve, but it's just business, and no matter where he ends up, Detroit will always be home.

Glad I caught the game, what a cracker that was. Unfortunately for some reason I couldn't access the FSD feed through my Slingbox so had to make do with the Tampa Bay version via ESPN America.

Its not the same watching the Red Wings without Redmond and Daniels.
