Nice physical play by E there behind his own net.  I can live with the defensive lapses a little easier if he's beating the crap out of guys around the net.

Is Franzen playing?

 

Yeah, about 1 out of 20 shifts, it looks like he is.

Looks that way... Maybe he's not going on IR?  Too late to call up XO?

 

From Khan on  Mlive:

 

General manager Ken Holland said the team needs to know the extent of the injury before deciding its next move - whether to place Kindl on injured reserve and call-up defenseman Xavier Ouellet from Grand Rapids.

Go Wings! Any word on Kronwall?

 

 

Ansar Khan ‏@AnsarKhanMLive  23m

Weiss said he's been cleared and is ready to play tonight. Kronwall feels good but said he needs to be cleared by the doctor tonight.


 

Lines:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader

Tatar-Sheahan-Weiss

Franzen-Helm-Nyquist

Miller-Glendening-Jurco

 

Looks like Andersson, Cleary scratched

 

 

***UPDATED based on Khan's mlive article***

 

On Defense:

Kronwall-Ericsson

Quincey-DeKeyser

Smith-Kindl

 

Lashoff scratched.

What exactly does Kindl have to do to lose his spot in the lineup?  He almost singlehandedly lost the game for the Wings last time he played.

I think it's his responsibility to hold the puck and make smart decisions at the blue line. A little indecisiveness and we give up a breakaway

 

I agree about the responsibility but still don't understand how Smith is somehow worse than Kindl in that regard.  This last game we saw Kindl move in from the point and rocket a slapshot into traffic that was blocked and led to a 2 on 0 breakaway that resulted in a goal.  

 

As the lone man back I have no idea what he was thinking.  If you're going to move that deep into the zone you can't take a huge windup on a team that's been tremendous at blocking shots all game long.

Was Weiss hurt again?

 

Yup.  Took a hard hit and got caught with an elbow to the head.  Not really dirty, he had his head low making a play when he got hit.

please hockey gods, let the Wings win this in regulation.  We offer you Kindl as a holy sacrifice.

Holy crap, they're not gonna waive that off??  

 

Isn't O'Halloran the ref tonight?

Kindl just pulled a Lebda.  :lol:

 

skate up ice with puck with speed, as soon as anyone even looks like they're gonna challenge, DROP PASS!!!

Kronwall to the locker room.  Hopefully it's an equipment issue or something.  They're already playing a man down with Kindl. 




#2558669 John Scott Butt Ends Tim Jackman's Face

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 23 December 2014 - 12:28 PM

 

I don't remember how many times the other guys have been suspended or questioned for doing something stupid, but Scott seems to be in the news all the time for something.  

 

He got a 7 games suspension for the headshot to Eriksson.  2 games for leaving the bench to start a fight on a line change.  Interestingly, he was leaving the bench to fight Tim Jackman.  The guy he just butt ended.  

 

 I guess he didn't get anything for jumping Kessel in that pre-season game, which was a chump move.

yea must be a typo.. that makes more sense.

 

although i'd rather see weiss switch with helm personally. 

 

Agreed.  I don't know if this is to ease Weiss back into the lineup given he's only played 11 games this season, or give him less responsibility as a winger to get him going or what. 

 

It seemed crazy he started at wing for his return to the lineup, but Weiss managed to produce in that role.  I'd just like him to work his way back to the 2nd line center he was supposed to be.

Good to see Z get another shot for nof****** reason. Surprised cleary didnt go 3rd

 

No reason? 

 

He was what, the 7th shooter?  And after Kronwall.  It's not like they threw him out there first.
