From NHL.com

 

 

Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard plans to start Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets after he was pulled from the team's previous game with blurry vision.


Howard left in the first period of Tuesday night's 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville after giving up two goals on seven shots.


In other lineup news, forward Jan Mursak is set to play for the first time since opening night, when he injured his collarbone. Defenseman Kent Huskins is also set to replace Jakub Kindl on the blue line.


The projected lineup for Detroit:


Valtteri Filppula - Henrik Zetterberg - Damien Brunner


Daniel Cleary - Pavel Datsyuk - Justin Abdelkader


Tomas Tatar - Joakim Andersson - Jan Mursak


Drew Miller - Cory Emmerton - Jordin Tootoo


Niklas Kronwall - Brian Lashoff


Jonathan Ericsson - Ian White


Kent Huskins - Kyle Quincey


Jimmy Howard


Jonas Gustavsson

Might as well trade Dats if youre just going to screw him by making him play with crap. That 2nd line is making me want to heave.

Pavel will be doing it all himself yet again tonight..

But I like the look of that third line.. Could be the difference maker tonight.

 Thanks for posting that info, OP.

 

That line should be capable of three goals tonite.  CBJ , knowing the other two are scrubs, will totally focus on collapsing on Dats, so Cleary will be open to pot one just like last game;   Abby can get a garbage goal in a scrum, and Dats will feel the need shred the D to get another one all by hisself.

 

With my awesome (in my mind only) evalueation skills, I will keep an eye on Mursak, comparing him on that line to NyQ.  At this point, I feel like NyQ has more jump, more of a nose for the net and getting open in general, and is a titch more skilled, and is a bit more all round competitive and effective.

With all the injuries, what choice does Babcock have?

 

Maybe he can call up some rec league players or something.

Switch Tatar and Cleary and I'd be fine with it.

That second line makes me want to vomit.  Injuries have murdered any depth and effectiveness we might have.

AS much asCleary may have something on babs, I'm starting to think babs is screwing with Pasha... Abby on the second line? Cleary got his goal for the next 8 games, so he needs not worry.

That or switch Abdelkader and Brunner.  Give Z a big body to work the corners and front of the net, give Pav someone who can take advantage of the space he creates.


"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

As long as Z & Brunner and Dats & Tatar are together I really don't care who plays with them.

But even Fip has a suprised look on his own face when he actually shoots and scores.  He always looks like, "Wow, I shot the puck!!! And it went in!!! Holy s***!"
