Does Nashville score 11 goals, or can we hold the opposition to less than double-digits? I'm hoping for the latter, not the former.

Love the posts so far LOL.

On a serious note, I think we are going to learn a lot about where our team is with this game. Expect Nashville to show up big for this one. They're one of the teams on fire, they're gunning for us, have had success against us this year, and are sniffing that they have a very good shot at ending up in 3rd place in the conference.

I think if we come out flat and get handled again, I think we're in for real trouble. If we come out hard and take it to them and play solid defense, then hopefully that game the other night will be the turning point for this team and we can get to the Wings Hockey we all know and have come to love.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

This was so funny I had to set it as my sig.

Pleeeaaase let's beat the Preds. I'll still feel bad about That Game even if we win this one (it takes me a while to recover from shock), but it'll at least be a bit of an extra boost to beat them.

If anybody thinks that we are going to come out flat and get our asses handed to us they haven't been watching the Red Wings for very long. This is a "bounce back" game. The Wings will give 100% effort on this one. The only thing that stands in their way is Rhinne. It may be a close game but I guarantee we will see maximum effort from the Wings.

The magic number is 2. Any combination of Wings wins and Preds losses means that the Preds can't win the division. A win tomorrow will wrap this up. If Chicago wins tonight against Columbus which is likely, the magic number for them is 2 1/2 (5 points).

It won't be nearly as bad as the St Louis gmae.

Nashville 7, Detroit 2.



So even though this is a "bounce back" game you are going to be pessimistic and predict another embarrassment? Ok then...
Do or do not. There is no try

:thumbup: You are correct, Sir.

Of course I am still :ranting: about the lose. And of course I want them to win, but I am a bit concerned. The team started off looking like Cup favorites at the beginning of the season. It seemed as if things happened too easily for them and they thought they'd better slow down and pace themselves for a long season. That coupled with the injuries and suddenly the've lost their Mojo and can't seem to get it back.

Let's hope. Maybe it's time for Darren Helm to stand upand give a speech in the locker room. if everyone played as hard and as intense as Helmer, we wouldn't be talking about this.

Go Wings
