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!

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.

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.

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:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader

Nyquist-Legwand-Franzen

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco

Miller-Helm-Glendening

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

Z-Dats-Bert/Abs

Gus-Legwand-Franzen

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco

Miller-Helm-Abs/Glendening

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.

LGW!

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

Khan reporting lines are

Z-Dats-Abby

Gus-Helm-Franzen

Bert-Sheahan-Tatar

Legwand-Glendening-Miller

Not sure I like taking Jurco out although I wanted to see Bertuzzi. Also still feel we are under using Legwand

The addition of bertuzzi is the worst coaching decision ive seen in awhile

I don't think playing Bertuzzi is bad. I just don't think it should be in place of Jurco

Because Anderson is such a better option at this point...

Did you watch last game?
