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.

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



I'm having flashbacks to 2010 looking at that lineup. Interesting to see Franzen on the third line. Let's see how long that lasts. To be honest I don't have a good feeling about tonight. Logically we should trounce Columbus, but we've been down this road before with terrible teams...

Good thing your useless predictions don't hold any weight around here or we would go 0-82.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Here's hoping the Flip/Hank/Huds line can break the trend of only scoring at home, and that the newly formed lines can find some chemistry. I actually like the way the lines were put together considering who we are missing, maybe Franzen can learn how to skate again by playing on a line with Helm and Miller, and that line of Cleary/Abby/Bert could have a great game crashing the net. This is about as ideal as the Wings could ask for to break out of their recent mini-slump, but they have to want it. I just hope they want it as bad as we fans want it for them.

Was he really that bad? The gwg wasn't his fault, the first one was set up because of an unfortunate bounce off of a skate, and the second one was because of a turnover directly in front of him.... I mean, I wasn't as focused in the game as I usually am seeing as I was visiting with friends I haven't seen in a little bit... but it didn't look like Howard was that s***ty

you're right. he wasn't that bad, but he wasn't that good, either.

he's also lost 3 in a row. probably just trying to mix it up a bit.

It's not like the team really gave Jimmy a chance in the past three games. Excited to see the young guys in the line up tonight though, and hopefully Joey can win another one. Hopefully Franzen meshes well with the 3rd line and the top 2 lines decide to show up before the 3rd period.

Also it seems like Nash isn't as down in the dumps as everyone is hoping he will be. Hopefully CBJ doesn't use the drama as a rallying point. I need some Red Wings wins in the near future.

Nash needs to go into politics.

The Wings WILL win tonight. I wore my unlucky shirt yesterday, so it is not touching whatever shirt I will be wearing today. Apparently, unbeknownst to me, the bad luck can pass on to the Wings even if I don't actually touch the shirt on game day, as opposed to what was previously thought. It also wicks through the other, innocent shirts and bespoils the Wings efforts. No more. It has been banished. The Wings WILL win tonight.

Those are the same lines Babs switched to in the third period last game, and everyone played a lot better afterwards.


Injuries or not, this is a winnable game.

it is the freking blue jackets, they freaking suck, yeah there is a possibility we could lose, you can lose to any team on any given night, but they have a bit more leeway seeing that columbus is horrible.

so we have the Grand Rapids Griffins on D tonight....

God, I hope the PP can get going

2 out of 6 isn't majority so no
