Apologies for the condensed GDT, it's late, i'm strapped for time and I have a busy day tomorrow. 

 

From my understanding, 3 points in our remaining 4 games is what we need to secure a playoff spot, there is no reason why we shouldn't secure two points in this game with Buffalo in their current state.

 

Red Wings unleash the force, Glendening and Nyquist with a pair each, Datsyuk with a goal and a helper. Wings win 5-1. 

Tonight's game mascots, the honorary Jedi wings.

Not sure as to why Jurco's been sent down to the 4th line, especially when I read a quote yesterday I think it was from babs who said he's been extremely happy with the Kid line offensively and defensively. Maybe just time for a shake up which is always good. Hoping for 2 points tonight!

so, if I am doing my math correctly, 2 points for us in the remaining games and 1 or less for Jersey in any of their remaining games puts us in....

 

must get those 2 tonight!

playoffs are a lock now, but we gotta play for the 7 seed. We can take the pens first round right now, but we need the BJ's to beat on the bruins a little bit for us to have a shot.

 

Another tight, and unnecessarily close game.

 

2-1 good guys.

I said it the last game against the Sabres. I think the Wings are over playing down to their opponents And while we played down to them for two periods it didn't matter. Hoping for at least a two goal win here.

I believe Washington can still get to 91 points. So we need three, as of right now.

Also, I think Toronto has the ROW tie breaker with us, so unless tey lose we need three points to get out of their reach officially.

One word, one # and an exclamation;-) 2 points! Big game tonight, a must win for my blood pressure! I want that 7th seed to avoid Boston til we get Hank & Big E back healthy! I think we can beat Boston but we'd be better off getting Pitt in round 1 and getting healthy for our presumed battle with the B's. Hopefully the BJ's knock the Bruins out early but let's just stay "fockused" (in my best Johann Strauss voice) on the 7th spot for now ;-) ramble over....

I've always liked the Flames. They gave us a lot of help last night, NJ was my main concern as it looked as though they could win all their games. Now we have absolutely no one to blame but ourselves if we miss. Gotta win this one and then we'll basically just have to get 1 point in any of the 3 other games and we're in. 

 

Let's do it. 

 

 

Not sure as to why Jurco's been sent down to the 4th line, especially when I read a quote yesterday I think it was from babs who said he's been extremely happy with the Kid line offensively and defensively. Maybe just time for a shake up which is always good. Hoping for 2 points tonight! 

He's just the odd man out unfortunately. He'll surely be the one scratched if/when Z returns. With Nyquist the kid line does become a bit more defensively sound, allowing Babs to play it more. But we're starting to see the kind of decisions we'll be forced to make when we're healthy. Helm on the wing? Jurco on the 4th line?

Jurco gets hurt-Tatar struggles.

Jurco returns from injury-Tatar gets hot.

Tatar gets hot-Babcock puts Jurco on the fourth line- yeah this makes a lot of sense. Argh...

Why is Abby back on the first line? Does Babs have a learning disability? Why doesn't he get that Abby doesn't belong up there? I don't care how much space he creates, he has no business on the top line. I just hope these lines will change after a few shifts.
