#2603191 Kronwall suspended one game

In reality, will it be Marchenko or Kindl in tonight? Kindl hasn't played a game in a while but is left-handed fill in for Kronner. Marchenko played well to begin but then was taken out, reasonably, for Smith.


My pipe dream is Kindl and Marchenko both in and Zid out, who has had a few poor games in a row.

Gotta keep the faith alive for the game tomorrow. It could happen.

Let's go Wings! Seems as though this game is being played as a final practice/rest up before the playoffs. Not a bad idea, IMO.


Hockeytown and all other GDTers...thanks so much for another great regular season's worth of graphics, lineup updates, etc.

I am very happy and relieved and proud of DRW for making the playoffs for 24 straight seasons. It's an amazing accomplishment.

I also can do without the extreme negativity, never fun.

But I disagree with a sentiment of, "Hey let's be happy we're in, this team is still great!" Yes they are, but they have faltered after looking extremely promising at several points during this season. Further, expectations are reasonably high for this franchise. I believe it is understandable to be disappointed with this team. We invest so much as fans and sure, these runs to the playoffs are great, but it is not baseless to be somewhat disappointed.

All being said, love this team til I die and here's to an improbable playoff run. Cheers!

Relieved. We have that going for us, which is nice.

Still envisioning a first round exit with the potential matchups, but hey, that's why they play the games.

Things that should stay:

Matter of Trust Billy Joel after 4 goals scored.

Piano Man Bilyl Joel "9 o'clock on a Saturday" on Saturday night games.

Goal horn.


Things that can go:

Muse Uprising after the other team scores.

Don't Stop Believin' Journey (song needs to die, further..South Detroit is Windsor, Ontario)


Things that shouldn't happen:

Individual goal song


All being said, I'll miss the Joe when it goes. I envsion they will have some sort of rebranding with the new arena, but keep some things the same.

Warrior.  I hereby award Drew Miller the Niklas Lidstrom Iron Man trophy for sheer guts and amazing heart.  Betcha he's out there tomorrow night vs. Boston.

#2587780 Opinion: Petr Mrazek should be starting Game 1

Posted by Ram on 01 April 2015 - 08:09 AM

My thoughts are, the goalie situation is likely to not be solved by the postseason if the Wings make it. Not the same whatsoever, but in a similar fashion to 2008 when Osgood was switched for Hasek, if Pete/Jim look like crap early in a playoff series, then Jim/Pete will come in. The way things are going I just don't see them figuring it out completely by season's end.


That all being said, I am glad Mraz is starting Thursday because he looked real solid for the majority of the game.

Ouch. Get well soon Drew. (insert "He's a hockey player; I'm surprised he didn't finish the game." line here).
