It's weird seeing Ruslan in the highlights of the last game against Florida. Almost forgot about that....sad stuff.

If the Wings want any shot at 4th, I think this is pretty much a must-win game. The Red Wings have the toughest remaining schedule by far of the three Central teams in contention. Chicago has a home-and-home with lousy Minnesota and the finale in Detroit. Nashville gets Minnesota and Dallas at home, finishes at Colorado. The Red Wings do have a game in-hand on both teams, but I don't think winning at St. Louis looks too promising right now. Game 82 against the Blackhawks is shaping up to have major implications.

More than anything, I just hope the Red Wings use these final four games to get in playoff form. I don't think relying on the proverbial "flip the switch" is going to work well against a team like the Predators. They need to compete harder and clean up their defensive lapses very quickly.

Free Nyquist and Go Red Wings!

Welcome back Samuelsson ... Florida will be hungry to keep 2 pts ahead of Washington, this will be anything but easy. Let's get it going.

We (puckloo39, Chelischick and me) will be at the game, row 14 behind the bench. We're meeting up with Kira and her husband and Jenny and Casey at Hockeytown Cafe after the game...stop by and find us if you want.

I really hope we play like we want this because Friday to me was a must win to secure a good spot and they played flat.

Go Wings!!!

Most likely 4-1 Florida. Should be a slam dunk in a world where they play with some heart, though.

The Nucks, Hawks, and Kings have all been rolling the last 10 games. The Wings haven't. It's a little late in the season to still be tweaking lines but there is still time to get their game in order.

I'm anxious to see how the second line performs today.


From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

Hi, I'm new, first time poster. My screen name is a slam on Forsberg and I loathe Coloradical. Been posting on other forums for about eighteen years as Poison Ivy and Smilin Spleener along with this one.

I've been looking for U P Guy who used to post on the Detroit News WingNut Forum. Anybody seen him?

Anywho, Babsie is "tinkering" with lines...hah! Hows about putting the best line in the entire League back together - Z D and H. And folks wonder why their production is down. Homer is the hardest working man in the buiz with the hand-eye coordination of a wizard. That trio had chemistry like no other. I honestly feel that without these three on the ice together, Detroit doesn't have much, if even a prayer of seeing the second round. It's not too late, Babsie, give it a go! These last five games could get 'em tuned right up.

Florida's been playing pretty well, we look like s***.

I'm not expecting much, but I'll be rooting for a W.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Just do the best you can. I don't care if you lose (well, yes I do) but at least put forth the dann effort.

Win and we're back on track to get 4th spot. Lose and we're on our way to 6th spot. Pretty pivotal game.
