Couple of things: if Kindl is scratched, does that mean our defense is 100% healthy finally?  Also, I wish Babs would try line combinations based on talent alone during this injury stretch.  I understand and normally would support his desire to have balanced lines, but four lines at 40% effectivness is not as good as 1 line at 90% effectiveness, 1 at 70% and the rest at 40%.  Even if they have no prior chemistry, I'd rather he just load up to keep us afloat.

Kane has cooled off drastically, hoping he keeps his scoreless streak alive. 

 

Monster needs to come up big, i'm putting faith in the big guy.

 

2-0 Wings, Helm and Smith.

It's finally healthy, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks now that Smith has shown improvement and even Quincey has reduced the number of boneheaded plays he makes per game. 

 

And I agree on the lines. We've got very little offense from the 'first line', and yet Babcock insists on having Abby there. Helm and Abby have great chemistry, as do Hank and Nyquist. That should be the foundation for 2 lines. Zetterberg needs help from someone else, I think I'd even try Bertuzzi on that line just to get a different look and see if we can start scoring some goals.

I concur. While Alfie is out, I think they should have Tats on the top line with Gus and Z, and stick Abby and Helm together. Would be interesting to see.

I just hope we are still in the game going into the 3rd. We need the likes of Bert, Cleary and Big E to step up and to help Z and Nik

coax this young Wings team through this difficult game and the upcoming few weeks till the injury list starts to subside. Once we do

have a fully fit roster we will be able to compete against the top sides, I hope this doesn't come too late.

I hate the Blackhawks and NBC and injuries and Hawks fans and Bettman and Ewoks and Cleary's agent and black licorice.

Awesome!  We get to play on NBC Sports and listen to that non biased oaf Edzo.  Again, a conflict of interest having him doing any games on this broadcast.  I don't mind Doc though.

 

GO WINGS!

This is a big game. We need points, badly. Finally the defence is healthy, Gus has been our best goalie all year and he's finally healthy. Let's win the game 2-1, or 3-2 and start to get on a roll.

Other than the fact Howard is better and was finding his game, Howard is the only reason we have gotten the last few wins

Lets win this one! Happy the game is on NBC I really do not enjoy the wings broadcast


Agree. The intermission report couldn't be worse and Ozzie makes me puke. NBC is pretty bad tho....
