example of suspension-worthy hit, with intent to injure. Yes, Pronger was suspended one game.
What Zetterberg did... skating too fast, and unable to pull up in time, was not at all the same thing. We shall see if the league wants to make these two situations equal in magnitude and intent. One of these things is not like the other.
I am glad Nikita is fine. He left the arena under his own power.
Thanks, Mikey! Hope the Wings saved a couple of goals for this game. Both teams traveling to Dallas for the game (Dallas lost to St. Louis 1-0).
It will be interesting to see if the "road woes" follow the Wings we saw vs. Buffalo Monday night at the Joe.
Wish I could be there in Dallas. Why they put the only two games vs. Wings in January, and both on a week night, I couldn't tell ya. Too much of a drive for me, on a work night -- but I will be watching!
Welcome to the forum. Hope you didn't expect any support for this thread. Conks wasn't the issue tonight. Lots of near misses, good chances not completed, and lack of scoring lost the game. The Wings never had a handle on this game, not for one moment.
Blame the goalie if you want, but scoring one goal won't win many games. End of story.
I'll be here but have to miss part of it, maybe it'll work to be intermission. We'll have our chance to see Nabokov to see what we're missing out on. Wish Conklin would have gotten another start...but this is Bacock's way, probably won't see Ty for another month.
I say we'll have a good night.
I fixed the accidental neg for you.
Early puck drop for me, but i will rush home for most of the first... no Nabby, meh. They should let Ty play again, IMO.
