Since Babs refuses to put the Eurotwins together I want him to stick to his changes from last game because Pavs has looked out of energy since post- all star break so I think he just needs to get energized with a new line.

Filpulla- Datsyuk- Hudler (I think this can be a fun line with great speed and will force all of them to shoot more)

Franzen- Zetterberg- Bert (Clearly the addition of Bert really opened the ice up for Hank and he was flying last game in the 3rd so hopefully he can keep it up)

Then the regular 3rd and 4th lines which have been very good.

On defense, I want to see Nick shooting the puck more I am tired of White taking all the shots... Nick simply has a way better shot but is not shooting enough.

As for the powerplay units I would like to see:

Filpulla- Datsyuk- Homer
White- Lidstrom (This will give Pavs a line where he HAS to shoot the puck more and will move around well rather then stand around passing the puck like the powerplay has been doing)

Franzen- Zetterberg- Bertuzzi
Hudler- Kronwall (Big bodies, but Babs needs them to get open and SHOOT)

Looks like Emmerton playing again. I want Mursak!


I think Emmerton's getting playing time for all the scouts at the games before the trade deadline. I have a feeling he's trade bait. Here's to a good game from J-Mac. Lets end this road trip with a nice win. GO WINGS!!!

I would imagine Kindl will be in there against the Coyotes.

Nice little surge at the end of the Edmonton game so here's to that continuing into this one against the Yotes. Hopefully J-Mac can take care of biz and the play in front of him is better than it was Saturday as well. End this road trip with a big W boys and come on back home!

It was painful to see Wings lost that one point against Oilers. Hope to see better effort tonight from the team, specifically from Franzen, who has been useless lately and waste of Pavels talent on that line. Looking for better effort al around, especially from our top players. Can't simply pass on easy points from bottom teams.
Go Wings !

The way I see it, if we can come away with a solid W tonight then that makes the record for this road trip 3-1-1 (which is a very good record considering the time of the year and the injury to Howard). After this road trip is over tonight, we have a very favorable schedule, having 18 of the final 28 games at home, where the Red Wings have been so much more dominant for multiple reasons. I doubt we see improvement to the Powerplay tonight, but I think with the Wings being at home so much for the remainder of the season, it will really give babs a lot of extra time to work on things like the Powerplay and things kicking in motion.

I'd like to see Z on that Bert and Franzen line. Oh well, Go Wings!

Getting ready to head out to Westgate soon for the game. We need a good solid start, and a solid 60 minutes, no overtime BS. Wearing my black Cleary practice jersey tonight. We never lose when I wear it.
lighten up people, it's the internet!

I'm not concerned with which goalie starts.

If the team can't convert on powerplays and/or stops playing before the end of the period and/or doesn't give the goalie any help, the results will not be what we want.

Hopefully they learned that it is easier to take the lead than to catch up to the lead.

Wings 4: Zata, Bert, Miller, Kronner
Yotes 1: Doan


Yep. The team wasn't all that much better than Conklin. Not a helluva lotta help out there.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Getting 7 of 10 points would make for a great road trip. Let's do it, Joey Mac!

Not diggin' losing Stuart on the blue line tonight. Not diggin' that at all.

Hopefully Joey can keep up this "I'm gonna steal yo job Conks" style and we can squeeze out a win tonight.

Wings 4 Yotes 3. Get well soon Stuart! Good news is both Commodore and Kindl have played pretty solid when called upon.
