Misconduct

Zetterberg Back Against Blues

I'm about an hour behind a bunch of other people on this but the news this afternoon is that Henrik Zetterberg will return tonight against St. Louis.

MacLeod says that Zetterberg rejoins a second line that still features Mikael Samuelsson with Jiri Hudler on the third line with Valtteri Filppula. Kris Draper is back on the fourth line with Darren Helm back in GR.

Andreas Lilja is out tonight after yesterday's appendectomy, Derek Meech remains in the lineup to take his spot.

Considering what a fabulous job Meech has done, he should stay and Lilja to GR. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Just in my opinion.

(sorry for the bad grammar mistake, which is now eliminated)

Conklin gets the start, forgot to mention that earlier. Last year's best backup in the league vs. 2004's best backup in the league.

Evening all! Let's see if the Wings tighten up the D tonight.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 8:45 PM

 

Wings passing seems a little off already tonight. Forcing it again.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 8:47 PM

 

Conklin comes up huge! Holy crap, I can't believe he got that.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 8:53 PM

 

Nice save by Conklin. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Wings need to get out of their zone.

What a save by Conklin!

Really bailed out Lidstrom.

I personally don't like the new NHL site. I haven't used center ice, but only because I'm fortunate enough to have FSN. Zetterberg scores on his game back! <3 WOO

Alright Zata!

Could see that play coming a mile away but I thought Legace would have it.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 9:03 PM

 

What a way for Zetterberg to return!

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/22/2008 at 9:04 PM

 

Hook by Hossa seemed no worse than any of the stuff that gets let go regularly. I guess I just don't understand the officiating yet this year.

Well, since I'm living down here in Norfolk, I need CenterIce for my addiction. Other than that, I go to the Scope Arena to catch the Norfolk Admirals. I have to wait until March 27th until they play the Griffins. Hopefully, I'll get to see D-Mac and Howard play.

That was close

Tkachuk way left his feet. No call?

Haha, this is going to sound totally immature and all, but does anyone else find it funny that the logos at center ice are 'Toyota' and 'Bud-Light'? <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.png" /> Not the best combination, there.

What an amazing stop by Conklin! Wowza.

How much did the Wings pay for Drapes form the Jets?

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 9:35 PM

 

Oh, now they say there are six players so I'm missing one.

Edit: Damnit, I forgot Doan actually played for Winnipeg.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 9:35 PM

 

You can add Shane Doan to the Jets list

Draper was $1 - not sure if a loonie or a greenback though

What a play! Hossa's fine not scoring if he's gonna keep finding Holmstrom like that.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 9:38 PM

 

Awesome! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" />

Holmstrom is...I don't even know what to say.

I hope he gets more credit this year.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 10/22/2008 at 9:38 PM

 

St. Louis has some good TV announcers. Ten times better than Vs but that ain't saying much. Still, no one can beat Mickey Redmond.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 9:45 PM

 

You did well with the Hartford list...I can't find anyone else...Legace never played for them, but I was surprised to learn that JS Giguere played 8 games there.

Posted by Stormo on 10/22/2008 at 9:47 PM

 

Kariya has got some jets!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 9:48 PM

 

Woops, I was playing rugby 08 on the pc during the intermission and I lost track of time, missed the second goal.

Gah! I knew there was another goalie.

Wings smacked around the St. Louis PP. Glad to see it, don't like giving them the chances when they've been on fire lately.

Haha, I love the turkey vaccinator bit. (According to my spell check, vaccinator is not a word. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" /> I think you're all intelligent enough to know what I mean) Turkey vaccinator...what an odd job!

I can't believe half the period has gone by already. Wow, this period's flying.

This thread is getting really weird.

Do you know what rugby is?

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/22/2008 at 10:02 PM

 

The Blues announcers just brought up an interesting stat. The Wings were last in the league last year in fights. Considering the Wings style of puck possession play, is there a tightly synchronyzed line rotation that can be disrupted by fights and their penalties? In other words, could this explain the lack of fighting in the Wings game? Or, is it because the Wings don't invest in enforcers?

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 10:03 PM

 

I'd say it's more that the Wings don't invest in enforcers. Why waste a lineup spot on one?

Great save by Samuelsson! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" />

Slightly scary moment there. I think it hit the side of the net?

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/22/2008 at 10:06 PM

 

And Lidstrom with a blast <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" />

Once again, props to Homer.

Power play goal!

I like these Wings a whole lot more than the ones we had been seeing.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 10:07 PM

 

Joke of a call on Kronwall.

I used to play winger, fullback, and outside center. I was a small quick guy.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 10:09 PM

 

Yes Lidstrom!

And St. Louis are on the power play. Another save by Conklin.

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/22/2008 at 10:09 PM

What do you mean by that?!?! Aren't you thrilled to hear 'Bluuuuuuuuueeeeeesssss on the pooooowwwwweeeeerrrr plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!' ;DNext the NHL'll have Mexican soccer announcers. (Gooaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllll...etc.)And McDonald scores. I like him, but not when it's against the Wings =/

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 10/22/2008 at 10:10 PM

 

Well, could see that coming as soon as they put Kronner in the box. Detroit scores and it's "Quick, get St. Louis back on the power play!"

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/22/2008 at 10:11 PM

 

Nice set up by MacDonnald. There goes the goose egg.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 10/22/2008 at 10:11 PM

 

Blues are doing that, "You might be beating me but look how big my dick is" thing where they spend five seconds after every whistle cross-checking people, knowing that stuff never gets called.
