Judging by the Bruins fan (not the one who stated we need to keep things clean), I think we have their fan base a little worried. I mean bring up how they "owned" previous playoff games some 4 years ago and how it took...... what 40+ years to win between Cups for them, I guess we have a lot in common don't we Boston????? I like when we get under the fans skin, that's one thing we have been doing for 88 plus years and that's something Boston knows nothing about but will by mid next week.



In Topic: 1-13-2

By the end of next week (March 23) we will see if the Wings are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. If we are not in within 5 to 6 points of the 8th spot, I really think the remaining 3 weeks should look like preseason games. There is no reason to have guys like Datsyuk, Franzen, Howie, Alfie, Helm, Legwand and such out there for games that do not mean anything. This would however be a great time to get guys that we need to see for next year which will then help decide what positions we need to target in the off season.


1-13-2 is very UnWings like, but the NHL is changing ALOT and parity is the new word in the NHL these days. 1-13-2 is really not shocking when you see teams locking down in the third period when they have the lead. The major reason the Wings do not have a decent hold on a playoff spot is because they could not hold onto leads in third period. There was a stretch I believe in November and December where we lost 5 straight games in shootouts and had the leads in those games. Dallas was the only Western Conference team we could "afford" to give points too, otherwise teams we are fighting against were handed 2 critical points.


The next 6 games will be huge for the Wings (12 possible points) I would say the Wings need 9 points of the 12 to still stay in the race. 2 Huge points against Toronto and Pittsburgh up for grabs mid week may just decide the playoff fate of the Wings.


Good God I hope that I am wrong and we pull of a miracle, but I just don't see it.

My understanding is that NHL Network will broadcast the ceremony prior to the game. The NHL Network stated that they will start the broadcast at 6:30 tonight. With that being said, if you have gamecenter I am almost certain the game is blacked out on gamecenter.

I have to agree with Kipwinger on this one. I am not sure what Neil was attempting to prove??? Maybe that he can still take out the leading scorer for the night in a fight??? I always respected Neil until recently, his game has slipped over the last few years, and personally I believe if he would have played when Probie and Kocur played he would be the only one with lipstick and a purse. Lets face it, Probie and Kocur would have chewed this dude up. Just my opinion.

As a former broadcaster myself for Oakland University, If I could give Osgood any advice, I would tell him to listen to his broadcasts over and over again. It didn't make sense to me until I did it, once I listened to myself I then realized what everyone else was hearing. If it didn't make sense while listening to it, just imagine how the people understood it or lack thereof during the broadcast.


Broadcasting is definitely an art, so I have some sympathy for Ozzie.
