This is do or die, tie the series or be put in the situation where 3 wins straight is the only possibility to advance. Play hard, with desperation, and act like this is the biggest game of the year against the top team in hockey. 


Lets GO Wings, bring us a victory in game 4!


In memory of Steve Shoen, Rest in peace.

Hoping for a Zetterbeard return and a tied series tonight! Especially because that means I'll for sure be at game 6. Let's get it done boys!

I'd just like to see us get a better start. Can't give the Bruins an early lead again. 


If Zetterberg returns it's huge.. but I can't imagine he'll play after only 1 real practice. 


I hope Oullet plays instead of Kindl. And that we start the game with different lines than we've had lately. We really need to find a way to break through the Bruins defense. Rask has been good but other than a couple saves he's mostly been stopping weak perimiter shots.

C'mon WIngs, you're fighting for your lives here!  You need to come out guns a blazin!  Amp it up and get engaged 60 minutes.

Wings play well under pressure. I think they will find a way to win this one. 4-2 Wings.

Has the League officially changed the branding of the "Quarterfinal" series to the "Round 1" series?

According to Ken Campbell of the hockey news, Z is back in tonight. The Wings beat guys should have confirmation of that shortly. Huge news if true. Even limited minutes of Z can make a difference against Boston.

Honestly, if Z can help them win tonight, I wouldn't even mind them sitting him next game. Obviously we need him, but I'd be okay with him staving off disaster for a game and then coming back for Game 6 or 7, too. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

Z!! His beard alone is intimidation enough...but seriously I assume they are doing the right thing so I won't think about that, he will no doubt add a spark under this club. LETS GO WINGS!!

If nothing else, he's a huge boost mentally for the guys in the room. The most clutch playoff performer since the 04 lockout, the Captain.


Hopefully Babs runs:

If I was Babcock and I am not, my lines would be









This is assuming Alfie is still having back issues

I definitely don't disagree with those lines but my bet is we will see that with Legwand and Helm switched...

Random question... is Tootoo still with the Red Wings? If so, they should dress him. He is like Brad Marchand with maybe a little less offensive upside.

Call me crazy, but we have been getting called for stupid penalties anyways, might as well dress him and see what he can do... he has playoff experience, as well.

Not trying to reopen the Tootoo debate, but I still feel like he could make a positive difference at the end of the night, at least more than some of our other "plugs" at the moment...

I just want a win tonight, no matter what the cost. Maybe switching things up wouldn't be a bad thing...

We need to focus on playing our game, fast-paced to tire out their defense.  We also need to quit setting up camp in our own zone.  Game 3 was awful.  We pretty much lived in our zone and could move the puck past the blue line.  I know we aren't a physical team, but we need to put a body on some people otherwise this series is over.  I think with Z returning (possibly) the wings will pull this one out 2-1.

According to Khan


Its Z-Dats-Abs together.  Pretty much expected


Alfie is not on the ice and Ouellet is still around


Also Bert in and Jurco out

I just want to see a solid effort, and when the night is over, I want everything left on the ice.
