Absolute must win. Tie series 1-1 heading back to the Joe would put all the pressure in Nashville.

Let's also stop the god damn negativity around here. Christ it sounds even worse than HFBoards at times. This is the Red Wings for f* sakes.

Please Babcock try something like this... our bottom 6 lost the game for us in Game 1... Our third line would be deadly with these lines... Nyquist would be moved around depending on which lines aren't clicking

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom

Franzen-Flippula-Cleary

Bertuzzi-Abdelkader-Hudler

Nyquist-Emmer-Miller

Score first Wings. I can't remember the last time we did that. Dominate the play and let's steal home ice. I'll be anxious all day go Wings

Dear Mr. Holland. Here are 14 easy steps to making everything ok.

1) Find the player with the most reddish hair.

2) Grow him a full beard by noon.

3) Make sure he's somehow interviewed by lots of members of the media.

4) Laugh and say that Draper was also said to look like Chuck Norris.

5) Keep the player away from the media after the warmup skate.

6) Make sure that, as a Red Wings employee, no one questions that Kris Draper went into the locker room.

7) Laugh as you acknowledge that Kris Draper is looking more like Chuck Norris than ever.

8) Watch in amazement as the player mentioned in Step One completely destroys Shea Weber as soon after the puck drop as possible.

9) Make sure that the camera doesn't get too good of a shot of the player mentioned in Step One as he goes to the locker room after begin kicked out of the game.

10) Win the game.

11) Allow the player mentioned in Step One to face the media after the game, noting that he has shaved his playoff beard in protest which is why he no longer looks like Chuck Norris.

12) Do not allow Kris Draper to address the media. In fact, just for good measure, have him get an emergency phone call during the first intermission and have to leave the locker room.

13) Feign ignorance when the media notices that Chuck Norris is a Wings fan, but oddly enough didn't find his seat until the second period.

14) Cover the cost of Chuck Norris' seat from Illitch Petty Cash fund.

I also think it might be a good idea to load up Hank and Pav on the same line. Pav is not 100% and needs some help out there, especially with Weber/Suter against him most of the time.

We played well enough to win in Game 1 though, and if we play like that tonight we WILL win. Hopefully the refs will let them play more 5-on-5 because we have an advantage there.

This is not quite a must-win, I still think we could lose tonight, hold home-ice and then beat them in 6 or 7, but a win would be huge. Put the ball firmly in our court.

LGW!

Side note to Shea Weber: It's Friday the 13th. You might want to avoid anything associated with the number 13.
