Games have been so close that I'm thinking the Wings are due for a crazy scoring night where they win huge.


They usually save those for when they're 3-1 or 3-0 down in a series these days.

Whatever, a 60 minute effort would be nice. Failing that, if we must have another 30 minute effort, please could it be the first 30 minutes this time, not the last 30.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I am hoping Kronwall "Sedins" Weber. That would be fun.

This is my first post so first of all hello to everybody from Good Old Blighty.

Secondly and most importantly I'm going Wings3-1.

We really need to capitalise on the periods of pressure we have managed put on them like in the third in the game just gone. In another game I would not have been shocked if we had turned them over by five or six but at the moment they seem to be getting the lucky bounces, surely that cannot continue?

On the other hand some of the daft penalties that we are giving away are the sort that you'd expect a team with lesser experience to be giving up. Irrespective of what some people may claim the Bertuzzi dance-off brought nothing to an end and rather than concentrating on the Predators targeting of Hank (see Tootoo's cheap shot on Sunday) we should be concentrating on our own game and stealing a break on the line match ups whilst we have home advantage.

Hope anybody going to the game has a great time, I have 2013 earmarked as my year for a trip to the Joe!

I'll be at the game, my first playoff game! Wings 6 Preds 0 :)



That is awesome, I'm jealous. I looked into going to a playoff game as well as I also have never been to one but by the time I fly to Vancouver then to Detroit and get hotel, food, many beer and tickets I was spending a small fortune. I'll try and do it when they get to conference finals or cup finals for I would love to meet and party with some true wings fans. Hope you have a great experience.

Wings need to shell Rinne again, bury the easy chances unlike on Sunday, keep the crease crowded, and actually play physical, kronner needs a series changing hit NOW.

The way Rinne is playing, I think a "shelling" isn't likely, but a few goals through some heavy traffic (provided we aren't whistled for it) might be just enough to send Trotz through the roof and rattle the Preds a bit.


I never make predictions........but I'll take an ugly win tonight.

Looks like Danny boy may be on the top line, at least to start....hmmmm...

We didn't skate this morning, so, on my lineup card that's how I have them,'' Babcock said. "But since that time we've talked about how we liked Abby (Justin Abdelkader) and Cleary and Bert (Todd Bertuzzi) together, too, so we'll see.

Definitely wait until it's a later round, unless you have the time and funds available to make it now. I went to the SCF in 2009 (all the way from Texas) and it was worth every damn penny. My goal every year is to have enough saved up for airfare and a playoff ticket, should we make the finals. Of course, there is supposed to be a pretty big game at the Big House next year...

Well, i'm not sure I liked the way they played the crease on Sunday honestly. Sometimes it seemed like they didn't know who was due infront of Rinne, so we would have two players trying to screen the same guy which lead to rebounds happening but noone close enough to actually pot it. I like crashing the net, I like pressure, but I don't like seeing cluttering which leads to missed opportunities when you can't let them be missed. What I do want, is to see some chase to the puck, some battling, some space being created. We like to pass and make the perfect play, and with a goalie like Rinne you need to throw pucks at the net and low hoping for juicy rebounds. We need powerful guys that won't be manhandled in the crease, otherwise you're worthless playing there.

we need someone to screen Rinne and go for the ugly goals against him, doubt he'll give up goals from high shots.

Hope Babcock goes for top end scoring putting Datsyuk and Zetterberg on a line again.

At least we have a hard working Cleary with Pavs. No more slow Bert and Floatzen. Now it's just Floater

And keep rotating/moving on the power play. Thank you! :D

I've tried to detach myself from the playoff run this year expecting nothing. But I've bought in after game 2, then let down again after game 3.

I have little faith in us pulling this game out. I hope we do.

Nervous.

I still think Babcock should put Franzen at centre. Franzen himself said he plays better there. Are you listening Babcock? I also mentioned that when the playoffs start, the wings will be a heavily penalized team. This will not change because of the mental fortitude which they do not possess. I have seen this for at least the last 6 years. It's probably gone on longer than that. Unfortunately, with regard to where players are positioned, Babcock is too stubborn to make courageous moves. That why he gets outcoached in key games. The other coaches make changes. Babcock just stands there and swigs his water. Nashville is a very good team and very hungry. Detroit could be a very good team, depending on their disposition.

Preds 3-1. Wings can't score and they will probably give up a few goals on odd man rushes or breakaways and pp.
