Nhl.com say Alfie has unspecified injury. He's looked like he's been laboring lately, like he's playing because he is "less" injured than the other vets.

 

I think Alfie sitting isn't a huge deal as he's been rather ineffective lately. I'd rather see Callahan in over Bert, but I don't think it's that huge of a difference.

Saying "Datsyuk out" makes it sound like he hasn't been out for a long time and is ALMOST BACK. 

 

I have a good feeling about this game. Or maybe it's just the feeling of finally playing a game that doesn't feel like a complete must-win. We're in a solid position, even with a loss tonight. And a win would to me feel like almost locking up a playoff spot.

I probably shouldn't say this, but I feel like if Alfie can play through fatigue and an injury for however long it's been, Datsyuk can at least play sheltered minutes tonight. Like, I'd totally get it if we didn't really have a timetable for his return, but we do, and it's a whopping two days from today. Is his knee ready to go or not?

 

meh. We'll blow the Bruins out of the water tonight then get shut out on Friday. This season is evil.

According to Khan his knee is good, but now it's just a matter of conditioning. I'd say with another practice on thursday he'd be good to go friday.

Could've worded it better, I guess. Point was, instead of definitely Alfie and quite possibly Datsyuk as well, we get neither. Because we can't have nice things this season.

The petulant child in me feels like two hours of conditioning being the difference between playing and not playing is lame. But I get it.

It makes a huge difference. Especially against the bruins team. Dressing someone who can only play sheltered minutes against the bruins won't help because you need to be able to play everyone in order to beat them. Buffalo is the perfect opponent for pav to come back to.

Yea I agree. It's better for Pav to come back in a game that potentially will be slightly easier. Although we shouldn't underestimate the Sabres, it'll be better for him to get another practice in there.

Hoping for the W, but this is a Big mean Bruins outfit and have that 6-1 mauling on their minds the last time they visited the Joe.

I'd take the ot point here and now !! Go Wings.

All I'm asking for is no more injuries and Pasha as much as I'd love having you back please sit out this game, it will be an ugly one regardless.

 

No way this team can go toe with Boston which isn't a shame, only a select few in the West can.

 

Thornton, McQuaid, Lucic and Chara...may god help us

 

FFS, we  hear this crap before every Boston game, and yet we've beaten them home and away this season.


"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

My worry is that he comes back a touch too early. With the way the guys are playing I'd hate to loose him for the long haul then wait an extra game or two.

With Alfie out if love to see Pulkkinen up here too

Agreed, Nev. The Boston phobia is excessive. We do just fine against them. Win some, lose some. Nothing to cower under the bed over.

Upset that I had to give up my tickets to this game, because I have the flu :bad:  (I think). I was really looking forward to some original 6 hockey.

Thank you, with the amount of doom and gloom on here lately, you'd think Armageddon was upon us.
