Hard to be very optimistic with all our injuries, going up against one of the best teams in the league. But ya never know, there's always a chance. If our overall D can hold up we should at least make it a competitive game. If not, it will likely be a blowout victory for the blackhawks.

A win tonight could put some serious wind in our sails.

Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

There's a reason games are played on the ice and not on paper (or internet message boards ;) )

"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

We need this game.

Also, release the Tootoo.

We could
Look at this in a couple different ways. 1. We play really well, everything click, we bury our chances and Howard stands tall, or we play like the last two games and get destroyed

As long as we get at least one point, I'll be happy.

This game will end up being played in 3 possible ways:


1) Hawks come out and completely expose our injured and mediocre team dominating the game 6-0 or something.


2) Hawks have an uncharacteristic game and the Wings score a lot despite the injuries and win,


3) It's a tight defensive checking game where the first team to score 2 wins.


I personally think #3 is the most likely option because I think Babcock will be sure to implement a defensive minded game plan. I think the Hawks have lost 2 in a row, but they are getting Hossa back tonight. As always, this is a huge game for the Wings need to get at least one point. LGW!

Tootoo and more Tootoo. hope he gets 2 goals and 2 assists!!  That's my reality.  Never say never, always go out there intending to win... no other options need to be considered!!

You know, I don't think a win is out of the question, but really do we think that 2 points is the only thing to play for here? (go ahead and feel free to lay in to me here…) 


What I am referring to is a momentum builder for the wings, where even if they don't get the full 2 points, they play really good competitive hockey and take it to the Hawks? 


I really really really think we need 2 points, but this team has struggled so much with consistency. The least we can hope for is a good bounce back effort after a lacklustre game vs the Oil. 


Edit: Loving the 4 captains in the graphic btw.

I don't know what its all about, but the Wings always play the Hawks good even with injuries. It'll either be a close game with us winning or we'll get blown out. Either way I'm sure our boys will be ready at puck drop. Cross fingers. 


On a side note anyway else hate Sunday night games?

2 possible outcomes


1 (more likely). complete domination by the Hawks = boatrace

2 (tight game) with a chance for a point


Bollig versus Tootoo could be interesting although I'd say edge Bollig :(

Yea, how about giving Alfie someone to play with instead of 4th line players.

Hopefully we win tonight, but I am not too optomistic seeing how we have only scored 1 goal in the last 2 games.


Either way I hope we see some of this from Toews boy tonight. One of the best game montages ever. CBC is great at them.

I have a feeling that we need a strong Howard today.
