Abdelkader is a game time decision, if he's out Landon Ferraro will be making his NHL debut. If that's the case I have no idea which line he'll be on. Leafs lines are an educated guess.

Well not to repeat the obvious for the 17th game in a row but this is the season right here. Not a chance they catch the Leafs but would be nice to deny them points. LGW.

Love the Rob Ford pic, greatest picture ever taken.

It seems the title of the thread was cut off.

If Abby is out, move Pulkkinen up to the 2nd line, and Smith to 3rd line winger with Gdening and Injured Alfie.

Massive game doesn't even begin to describe his one. I thought they competed well against Chicago until that debocle of a shift at the end of the second. No doubt the same effort will be needed plus more. Go Wings get it done.

Losing this game = Leafs are more than out of reach


I have absolutely no expectations save for an honest effort of course.

Thanks, Gord, you can still make me smile despite the circumstances.  Tootoo looks hot.  LOL~   Last game I said really all I wanted was a good effort and no one else to get hurt.  That last part.. never mind.  We cannot get through a game with injury it seems.  :confused:


Still hoping for the best out there, especially since Mule has thrown down the gauntlet.  ;)    Go, Wings!!

I do. I also want this to be Franzen's statement game. Take this Wings team by the throat and drag them to victory, Mule.

Hard to expect much of anything with that lineup, let alone a serious push into the playoffs.

Need a big night from Franzen and Nyquist. Goals are hard to find, so another scoring tear from one or both would be huge.

I really miss Henrik Zetterberg. I feel like just his presence alone would drastically alter our opinions of reaching the playoffs.

Good lord this lineup is laughable. Who would've thought at the beginning of the season we could be playing a 3rd and 4th line of





That is... atrocious. I would like to see Smith play wing tonight. Just for fun, because really how much worse can it get? Maybe Mantha's team will crap the bed in the playoffs and we can get him in for a few games of experience before the season is over. 



Ferraro will be the 7th Griffin to make his NHL debut this season according to the Wings website.
