I'm really looking forward to this game. Pavs and Hank vs. Ovie. Doesn't get much better.


Nash didn't register one shot on net last night. Bold prediction: Ovie doesn't do much better.

this is the first time I get to see Brunnstrom play. If he plays as good as he sounds, look for our 4th line to dominate their 4th and probably their 3rd liners.

Gonna be an awesome game but I'll say one thing: our big guns have to show up. Speaking mainly about Hank and Pav. They've got a few points each and haven't been bad, but nor have they dominated a game yet like they can. It's great that our 2nd line is doing so well but against a team like Washington we need our top players to be our top players and match/outmatch Ovechkin and Backstrom.

One team will have it's winning streak broken and hopefully it's not us..

5-3 Red Wings!

The GDT is a thing of beauty, as usual, Mike, thank you! I am sorry you have to miss a chunk of the game tonight, but we will be waiting for you when you get here.

I think the Wings will be ready, lots of momentum from last night.

I love me some Ovie, but I do hope they keep him off the scoreboard, like they did Nash. Big test for our D, but they can do this!!

I am SO looking forward to this game! I watch the Caps when the Wings aren't playing, and this is a huge game for our defense. I don't think we're going to have an easy time of it, so my prediction is 5-4 in OT.

I do kind of wish that Babs had started Conklin last night against CBJ and kept Howard for tonight. Oh well, as long as the defense plays as strong as it can, Conklin should be fine.

I agree with one of the above posters - Pav and Z need to be at their best tonight. Cleary could stand a goal. Helmer too.

Great matchup, though. I really just want to see good skating and 60 minutes of effort.



LGW!!!!!!!!!!!!

If we shut their 1st line down, we should win. Our 2nd and 3rd lines are beast.

^ Happy birthday!

Can't wait! Last night's game was great, and that was just against the BJs! Someone's going home tonight un-undefeated...I know where I'm putting my bet.

I hope Cleary gets a little payoff tonight; he looked good last night, but the puck just wasn't going in the right direction for him. I know Pavs will be great anyway, but I hope he really puts on a clinic in front of Ovechkin, hehe.

I think it'll be a close game, but we pull it out 4-3.

I am pretty excited to watch this game and see how long we can keep this streak going. The quicker we can separate ourselves from other teams in the conference the better. I think Brunnstrom will have an immediate impact and at the very least get a point, maybe a goal. 4-3 Wings.

I can't be here for the game tonight, but I'm recording it so hopefully it'll be a good one with a Wings win at the end. Both teams have their perfect record on the line but I expect the Wings to play harder.

Go Wings!!

Also, he's the first European-born player to play in 1500 regular season games. For the hell of it, while I maintain my predication of a 4-3 Wings win, I say Captain Perfect here gets a hat trick. Why not.

I'm on board for this one, definitely raising a glass of the Macallan for Nick. 1500 games is one heck of an achievement, let alone 1500 games played at so consistently high a level by one of the classiest acts to ever lace them up. Nick has been the best of his generation of defenseman and one of the best of all time. We as Wings fans have been fortunate to witness his excellence game in and game out for a long time. I'm hoping the team comes out and plays inspired hockey to win it for him. As a side note I hope the franchise honors him for it at a home game.

I like the Nick hat trick idea, Electrophile, but I'd be fine with 1 goal and multiple assists and a good +/- to shut up the critics. I'd love to see the team go to 6-0 on the season.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.
