Sucks that Pavs and Mule won't be playing. I'l be at this game S222 R6. Was looking forward to Howie giving Cindy another well deserved face wash, but oh well. Just hoping the Wings can start putting together a string of home wins going into the playoffs. Gonna be really pissed off if Cooke is playing in this game.

how is hudler out for this many days with the flu???

No kidding. Though the MLive article posted at the top said Hudler was out with an "upper body" injury. Holland said last week the doctors told him Hudler would be cleared to play on Monday so I wonder if there's more to the story than just the flu.

Go Red Wings! Need the points with the Sharks right behind.

shouldnt Cooke be taken out of their projected lines? i can't imagine him being able to play

It's a perversion of justice if he plays Monday. Which means I wouldn't be 100 per cent surprised if he did.

Weird its my birthday too. I also will be in attendance, but sadly my fiancee is a Pens fan and because its just shy of 3 hours to Det. and I was meeting with an old French teacher we both had in HS I am bringing her along and coughed up the money for 2 additional tickets foregoing the one I had right behind the Pens entrance tunnel. BUT in good news the old French teacher is a Wings fan so she will take my place to "welcome" the pens to the ice. We will be in S218B R9.

Hank always seems to play well against Pittsburgh.

Cheers to that happening this evening beerchug.gif

I shall be in attendance so don't everybody get too worried about that yet. I feel like I have to get a W under my belt eventually and Hank steps his game up even more when Pav can't give it a go. Let's hope that is exactly what happens tonight and he pots a couple. Feels more so like a big game from Flip is on the horizon though. I am all for a 60 minute effort with Red Wings scoring many goals. Make it happen!
