I'm not doing any GDT details, I just wanted us to have a place to banter about today's game. It felt like something was missing. HT001, feel free to make your own GDT and then the mods can delete/merge this one.

Let's Go Wings! Set that club record on the way to #12!

NHL.com Preview

SABRES (19-20-5) at RED WINGS (28-15-1)

TV: MSG-Buffalo, FS-Detroit

LAST 10: Buffalo 3-5-2; Detroit 7-3-0

(...)

Injury Report: Few on Buffalo's bench have avoided the injury bug. Brayden McNabb (concussion) and Robyn Regehr (upper body) are questionable for Monday's game. Christian Ehrhoff (upper body), Andrej Sekera (upper body), Colin Stuart (lower body), Tyler Ennis (left ankle) and Corey Tropp (upper body) are on injured reserve. … Detroit's Mike Commodore (bruised left ankle) is questionable, while Patrick Eaves (broken jaw) is out indefinitely.

Stat Pack: A trip to Detroit is a homecoming for Miller, who is expected to get the start in the state where he grew up and starred for Michigan State. However, Miller is just 2-5-2 with a 3.30 goals-against average in nine career matchups with Detroit. He's also struggled on the road, losing his last six decisions with a 3.45 GAA.

Matchup of Miller brothers a subplot as Red Wings seek club record win streak at home

Drew Miller’s Detroit Red Wings can do something special tonight. But Miller’s older brother might be standing in the way.

The Red Wings can establish a club record with their 15th consecutive victory at home, against the Buffalo Sabres, who are expected to start Ryan Miller in goal.

It would be the fourth time the siblings, who grew up in East Lansing and played at Michigan State (but not together), have faced each other in the NHL.

Wish I could go to this one, I like both of the Miller brothers but I have to hope Drew has a better night...sorry Ryan :P


Since it's a home game we have a good record going right now, hopefully we'll add to it tonight.

Sorry, little Sabres... you must lose tonight. Go, Wings!!!

Ya how the hell is emmerton over Mursak?? Who cares about the whole center thing ... Abby centers that line most of time, bad move Babs emmerton time is up brings nothing to our team. Mursak is great!

I have actually liked the way Emmerton has played when he gets in but I would definitely rather see Mursak with his speed and skating ability. I am sure he will play tomorrow because of the back to back. Hopefully the team isn't thinking about the record as much as we are because that could end badly. LGW!

Cannot wait for this one!

Couple reasons to win today:

1. Will break our record for most consecutive home wins (unless I missed something).

2. Will have 59 points, almost 10 clear of the final play-off spot in the Western conference.

3. We have the most talented forward - Todd said so and he has a Stanley Cup.

4. Duh, "WINNING!"

I feel you completely, I'm really starting to miss the good old days when Ties existed.

I'll predict this one 5-3 in the Wings favor, in a fast paced and slightly lapsed defensive effort on both ends.

Precisely why I've been advocating a complete overhaul of the points system, though I was doing that before this season. There shouldn't be any reason for points awarded to a loss in OT, since there should be no points awarded for any loss, whether it's regulation or otherwise. That's an entirely different thread however, and I don't mean to thread jack.


LET'S GO WINGS! BEAT BUFFALO!

No worries. I completely agree. I don't care which one, but get rid of the extra point for a loss OR give an extra point for regulation wins. Be consistent. I never liked it, but to have it actually affecting our standings based on absurdity...is bothersome to say the least.

This would be much better AND much smarter, but if it's something that will help improve the game, or make it more equitable, it ain't gonna happen. Sucks for the fans.
