Hey guys!

 

   Go Wings, get it done tonight!

 

 

I hate to be a buzz kill, but I think we need 2 points, not 1.  Hypothetically if we only got 1 point in the remaining 3 games, it would give us 91 points.  That would keep NJ from catching us, but Washington could win their remaining 3 games and also get 91 points.  But they would have more wins than us.  I am assuming that Columbus will win some more as well.  Looks like our math was a little fuzzy yesterday.  I hope Washington and NJ both lose at least one game to help us out, I damn sure don't want to go into St. Louis on Sunday needing 1 or 2 points.  How bad would St. Louis want to beat us that day to be the team to break our streak? Especially after all the playoff eliminations and season defeated we have handed them in the past.....ugh!  Lets just get our two points tonight against an ailing pens squad, if not then please lets win against Carolina, a game we should win anyhow...

We have ROW the tie breaker over Washington. If we get one point they could win the rest of their games 10-0 and we would still be in.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

OK, so I am a bit confused then....I thought the first tie break is number of wins? If that is the case, if we get a OT/Shootout loss for 1 point the rest of the season, we finish with 38 wins.  If Washington runs the board and wins all three of their games they will have 39 wins..... NEVERMIND! LOL! Wins are counted for both ROW and Shootout...and we have more ROW! Durt de Durt!

 

 

Lets go Wings!

Tiebreaker:

 

1 - ROW (Detroit has this over Washington

2 - Head to Head (won't matter due to 1)

3 - Goal differential (won't matter due to 1)

 

Wings need 1pt to clinch, or 1 loss by Washington.

The Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets can clinch Stanley Cup Playoffs berths Wednesday, while the Anaheim Ducks can clinch the Pacific Division title. Here are the scenarios:
 
DETROIT RED WINGS
 
The Red Wings would clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs if they get at least one point against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
 
COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS
 
The Blue Jackets would clinch a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs if they defeat the Dallas Stars in any fashion.
 
ANAHEIM DUCKS
 
The Ducks would clinch the Pacific Division title if they defeat the San Jose Sharks in any fashion. That result also would clinch a first-round matchup between the Sharks and Los Angeles Kings, with the Sharks having home-ice advantage.
 
NOTE: A loss by the Red Wings in any fashion would clinch a first-round matchup between the Canadiens and Lightning, with home-ice advantage to be determined.

News is that Andersson is skating in the warm up in case someone can't go.  No word yet on who specifically, but I wonder if Alfie's back is acting up again.

 

Edit: It is being reported that Babs said that the potential injury scratch is not Datsyuk.

We should be well rested after yesterday's game. Seriously, it looked like everybody was moving at half speed most of the game.

Washington doesn't have the heart to win 3 games to make the playoffs.  They'll go 1-2.  As for tonight's game, I think the Wings surprise some people on here and win this game 4-1 with a full 60 minute effort and Glendening makes Crosby completely melt down.

For all the fear on this board of the Bruins, Neal's elbows scare me far more than Lucic's fists.

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

That's legit.

 

The Penguins are a much dirtier team than the Bs. I guarantee one serious, dirty-play-related injury to a Red Wings if we have a long series vs the Pens.

looks like Red Wings will play the 'most arrogant organization in NHL' in the first round of playoff. and tonight game worries me, as that organization wont hesitate to go after our player or players. they used to have cooke, it's succesfully been replaced with neal. kuniz is also in the same category of players.

 

that is a main concern for today game...

Neal has two elbows and two knees. just a reminder.
