WE FINALLY HAVE A SHORTER INJURY COUNT THAN THE OTHER TEAM (knocks on all the wood)

every game is a must win in my book. LGW

Expected Sabres lineup:

 

Cody Hodgson - Zemgus Girgensons - Brian Flynn

Ville Leino - Tyler Ennis - Nicolas Deslauriers

Marcus Foligno Some AHL Guy - Johan Larsson - Matt D'Agostini

Cory Conacher - Matt Ellis - John Scott

 

Christian Ehrhoff - Rasmus Ristolainen

Mike Weber - Chad Ruhwedel

Jake McCabe - Jamie McBain

 

Matt Hackett

Nathan Lieuwen

 

We're 21-2-1 (plus a tie) in our past 25 games against the Sabres. 12-0-1 at the Joe.

I'm excited for this game.   Should have worn my 'moves like Datsyuk' shirt today.  If Pavs stays on the third line against that Sabres' lineup, hold onto your hats Wings' fans.

Didn't Foligno go down for them yesterday? Thought I saw that. Not that it'll make a lot of difference but it could be one less big body to have to play against. Let's all hope Scott doesn't kill someone this game.

Let's see, won a few games, facing a terrible team with nothing to play for with a third string goalie.

This has upset written all over it.

But seriously, a multi goal win would be great.

Yep, you're right, Foligno is almost certainly out. My bad.

 

I do worry about Scott. I also worry about their no-name goalies + any player that hasn't scored a goal at the NHL level.

 

The really good news is that Jimmy absolutely owns this team.

Normally I'd say I'm nervous about this one, but after Boston on Weds, I'm certain it's gonna be 2 points in regulation. Not only are we head and shoulders better then Buffalo, but we're 100% more desperate. TOR and CBS won last night, so it's an important game tonight.

Is this right? Leino has ZERO goals in 54 games this season?!? Only 10 in 134 games since Buffalo signed him?!? I know the guy is talented. He showed glimpses here and played well in Philidelphia. I guess some people play better when less is expected from them. Let's hope he does not break out of his goal-scoring slump tonight ... unless it's when Detroit has a big lead, then I won't mind so much. I feel for the guy.

Winners of three straight, the Wings enter tonight’s game with a 91.6 percent chance of making the playoffs for the 23rd straight time, per Sports Club Stats.

 

 

gotta love having our fate in our own hands, esspecially with the play as of late.

Wings win 14-3.  Datsyuk with a goal and 13 assists.


"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

does it? really? this is what a classic let down game is in the websters dictionary? can we get a reference please 

 

Just looked it up see number 6 specifically

 

let·down

[let-doun] Show IPA
noun
1.   a decrease in volume, force, energy, etc.: a letdown in sales; a general letdown of social barriers.
2.   disillusionment, discouragement, or disappointment: The job was a letdown.
3.   depression; deflation: He felt a terrible letdown at the end of the play.
4.   the accelerated movement of milk into the mammary glands of lactating mammals upon stimulation, as by massage or suckling.
5.  Aeronautics . the descent of an aircraft from a higher to a lower altitude preparatory to making an approach and landing or to making a target run or the like.
6.  game a game where the players from Detroit decide that they will win games on talent alone and not a combination of hustle and talent.  Then decide to play with 10 minutes left in game down  2 goals. Usually occurs after a heroic game/moment but has been seen based on opponents after a west coast road trip.

Looks like Datsyuk and Nyquist (aka Datsyuk Jr.) will be on the first PP unit. Stoked to see what these two can do together.

As I said in the playoff race thread, our win vs Boston is only huge if we win tonight. I really feel we are over those let down games this time of year and I think we will win by at least 2 goals but I'll take 2 points in any form.

 

Go Wings!

This is a really good point. there would have been no difference if we lost to Boston, and won tonight.

 

We just need to win all we can from here on out.

Our PP is starting to look as slow as a game of shuffleboard at a retirement home, hopefully with Pav back in the power play will pick up.
