Alright, finally some hockey instead of drama!

This is the kind of game we need. Howson looked like a jerk in his press conference and I am sure CBJ team morale is low so I hope the wings come out flying and have a solid THREE period performance tonight.

Love to see FRANZEN have a "great" game and get a scoring streak going before the playoffs!

Lets go WINGS!!!

4-1 Wings. Rick Nash won't be heard from all night long is my guess as the long slow divorce plays out publicly.

Helm (SH), Franzen, Kronwall, Flip (PP)

Trying to get home in time to DVR this one. I want to see Smith. We've heard about him for years now is his chance to earn a starting spot for next year.

4-1 Wings Mule with the Hatty

After the boring trade deadline day Iam excited to watch Smith and the Wings win this one.

On the other hand it will be painfull to see Nash and his tallants being waisted in a team like blue jackets.

Hope to see him in Wings uniform next season.

Oh well.

4-2 Wings.

I hope the new blood gets things going tonight. We need to win and Columbus is a good opponent for that to happen against. If we can win with Lids and Datsyuk out that should help the guys' confidence. That and maybe we can play the entire 60 minutes.

Go Wings!

Quincey out tonight too! Janik taking Lidstroms spot I guess! Would like to see smith get those minutes to see what he can do!

Here is the lineup via Winging it in Motown:

Henrik Zetterberg -- Valtteri Filppula -- Jiri Hudler

Danny Cleary -- Justin Abdelkader -- Todd Bertuzzi

Johan Franzen -- Darren Helm -- Drew Miller

Jan Mursak -- Cory Emmerton -- Tomas Holmstrom

*Doug Janik -- Ian White

Niklas Kronwall -- Brad Stuart

Jakub Kindl -- Brendan Smith

Jimmy Howard (starting)

Joey MacDonald

Per Helene St. James on twitter, Joey Mac is getting the start tonight.

Lol its Griffins night in Columbus. Looks to me they are just giving up on this game TBH. Why not call up some more kids.

so,

no datsyuk

no lidstrom

macdonald starting

throw in the wings' play against terrible teams this year, and i'd say it's a 4-1 columbus victory tonight.

i do like the fraznen demotion. if only babcock had the balls to stick with it or actually bench him. the reality is that he'll be off the 3rd line in no time.

Forgot no quincey, Geesh this might be a rough one.... On a good note we could have the "keep your head up" d pairing... Kronwall - Smith

4 regulars out of the lineup and Joey Mac in net ... this will be huge morale booster if the boys can win this one on the road with this skeleton crew. Even short a few studs we SHOULD be able to get 2 points from CBJ and Minn. In the 5 games this year that Lids or PAv have been out weve gotten 1 point thusfar - time to take accountability and raise the compete level. Id like to see Bert throw up a few points tonight.
