Well,I predicted the right score last game. I will likely be wrong this time. I think Phx will get every break in the book and win tonight, and we'll all be sweating a bit for game 4. Just my opinion, and knowing how the NHL keeps manipulating games.

Am I the only one that likes the late games? I mean I'm up until 2AM normally anyway so it fits perfectly into my schedule. Otherwise I have to race home at 7 to catch the game.

Read my words:

Powerplays 2:1 in favor of the yotes. If we get 3 PP's, they'll get at least six.

5 on 3: Guaranteed for the 'yotes

Also, Homer will have one goal called back for phantom interference. At the other end the 'yotes will bulldoze Howard and the goal(s) will stand.

That would make it 8 or 9 games in a row where the opponent of the Wings would be the recipient of a 5 on 3.

Blaayze, the game will not be on NBC. Those are only weekend games and Games 3-7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

dcd, this is one of those games where we hope and pray the game before us on Versus (which is the channel it'll be on *exclusively*) ends before the start time of our game. PHI/BUF starts at 7:00 ET and DET/PHX begins 3.5 hours later. As long as the PHI/BUF game doesn't go deep and past the first OT or longer, those with Versus will be able to see the Wings game in entirety. Those without Versus (in the USA atleast) are gonna be S.O.L.

If the game does go past the first OT, we can only expect live look-ins until the game concludes. Scary s*** for any non-local Wings fan.

Have I mentioned that I HATE VERSUS?

Refs are going to suck for both sides. Expect whoever is losing in the third to get PPs.

I expect a 3-1 win. Datsyuk will get ran a couple times. Helm will be a beast. Abby will fight. Lidstrom will finish -1 and have a PP assist. Big E will be Big E and I expect a huge bounce back game from Howie, a clean sheet from him wouldn't surprise me.

Luckily for Lids, if your prediction comes true it'll be impossible for the score to be 3-1, Nick to have an assist and finish -1.

I'm gonna go with 4-2, tense for the last 5 minutes or so of the 3rd, but Dats puts the empty netter in on his own this time to seal it. LETS GO WINGS!

Ummm what? Powerplays don't effect your +\- unless the shorthanded team scores.... There are plenty of players who score 3+ points and still finish -1 in a game that ended 5-1.

Good quote from Doan:

Coyotes captain Shane Doan said Datsyuk has "been incredible."

"You tip your hat to him, the things he does and the way he plays," Doan said. "You admire him and you cant give him any free opportunities. He's so good at creating opportunities you have to make sure you don't give him free ones and you do your best to limit that."

Well its no surprise that the NHL appoints Chris Lee to ref this game... the man who has called off the most Wings goals since Dan Ohalloran stopped back in 2009. Honestly, I am starting to really wonder about the NHL. Someone above said that this would be like the 7th playoff game in a row where they got a 5 on 3 against them... at first I laughed but now that I think of it that is true. That alone illustrates the terrible officiating that is taking place in the NHL. So far, the Wings have beaten the Coyotes along with the officiating in games 1 and 2, so lets hope tonight we only have to beat the Coyotes.

I bet they try everything in their power to limit Pavs tonight, but I don't think they can keep him off the score sheet... he is playing very confident and is leading the Wings shift in and shift out. As always, first 10 min are key, and there should be lots of Wings fans in attendence. Hopefully the boys can get a W so that this series can end quickly and this year we can wait for San Jose much like they did for us last year.

Really believe we're gonna win the game tonight. Howard wasnt his best last game, I think he'll bounce back. If we limit the penalties, we'll be fine.

Yes, but unfortunately it's not entirely up to the Wings -- or even the Coyotes for that matter. Perhaps some method involving the placement of the stars or the formation of tea leaves is the determining factor?

It worked for games 1 and 2, so here I am posting before the game again haha :]

Anyways, don't let off the gas tonight, I have a feeling the coyotes are going to be playing with some energy on home ice, but we have to weather the storm and just keep doing what we've been doing!

Go Wings!
