Red Wings - Kings Game Notes

The morning after a late West Coast game... Not a lot from the Detroit press.

Of course MacLeod is stuck at home since his paper won't send him anywhere. Khan has a recap at mLive and the DetNews has one as well.

I'm a little surprised to not see any quotes about the officiating from Mike Babcock, given his comments after the games in St. Louis and Chicago last week. Of course no matter what he thinks of the penalty to Mikael Samuelsson for essentially driving to the net (among others), he's probably been warned to keep quiet.

For the most part the Wings played a solid game, the Kings just took advantage of every chance they got. A power play goal where Chris Osgood makes the save but LA has a guy right there to bang it in. A deflection off of Nicklas Lidstrom's skate.

Detroit did some of the same, though. Marian Hossa scored on a five-on-three, jumping past all three defenders before beating Jason Labarbara. Valtteri Filppula tied the game late by picking off an attempted outlet pass, putting himself all alone in front of Labarbara.

Osgood did a great job of staying with the shooters in the shootout, while Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg made Labarbara look silly.

One thing I took away from the game is that the makeshift third line of Filppula, Jiri Hudler and Tomas Kopecky looked very good. Much better than the reunited Grind Line, which is kind of sad but also very exciting to see.

Looking forward very much to see the old Grind Line back together again tonight.

Sorry, I missed you all the last two games but I was running the Marine Corps Marathon this weekend up in D.C. Looks like I missed a really good game Saturday.

GO WINGS!!!

I'm glad to see the Grind Line back together and also very interested on seeing the new third line, with Kopecky skating with Filppula and Hudler.

That said, I'd rather see Leino in the lineup so if Franzen is going to be out for awhile I hope they find out soon so they can figure out whether or not to call him up.

Programming note... Probably won't be much pre-game updating from me, I've got a 7:00 AM code release tomorrow so I'll be napping until gametime so I can stay up late for the game. Frikkin' West Coast road trips.

I'm excited. I'd like to see Quincey lose...badly <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

I've calculated I'm going to get about three hours of sleep tonight. HUZZAH!

edit -- Miscalculation, I believe I will be getting four <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

I wasn't planning on watching, but I've just got back from work and probably won't get to sleep anytime soon, so I might watch the first two periods, I'll see. I'm also taking advantage of the europe-North America clocks going back lag (is there an official term?), so basically there's an hour cut off the time difference at the moment. But it had to coincide with a West coast road trip. Oh yay.

Hoping for no OT. By my count I'm looking at a little under 5 hours of sleep and that's giving me no extra time in the morning. Actually not as bad as I expected.

Wings looked slow for the first few minutes but that third line I was interested in got things going a little bit there.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 10:43 PM

 

Go Zetterberg <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" /> That was...an unexpected goal. XD

Were they saying he was going to marry that one lady earlier? I wasn't paying attention.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 10/27/2008 at 10:47 PM

 

Zata gets the Wings on the board!

Raffy waited until about the last possible second to get that first shot off, Zetterberg was in the right place at the right time after it was blocked. Nothing Labarbara could do, stuck out of position trying to play that first shot that didn't go through.

Yeah, his model girlfriend probably had to work hard to convince him to propose. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Kopy with one of those hits that look bigger than they are 'cause they broke the glass.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 10:54 PM

 

Ozzie had to come up big right there. I don't think Raffy tripped him, his stick wasn't on the inside of his leg.

Lmao, that's a good one. XD I thought she was a reporter though? But she's a model. Ooooh, what a hot-shot <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" /> Kings on the powwweeeerrrrrrpllllllaaaaay XD Rafalski for tripping.And they score =/ Damn.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 10/27/2008 at 10:59 PM

 

Damnit. Goal on the questionable power play.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:00 PM

 

Haha, the Soviet Re-Union, that was cute <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

And you bet PD is amazing.

Anyone else find Datsyuk's Rahmani(if that's how it's spelled) commercial hilarious? I dunno why, but it makes me crack up.

Offsides. Three on one. God is on our side <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

I forgot Kyle Calder existed.

He's in the box now, though.

Hopefully a goal will be in the near future! <3 (I feel so lonely here, everyone disappeared XD)

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 10/27/2008 at 11:12 PM

 

Messy end to the period. Lets get that ice resurfaced.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:16 PM

 

Kyle Calder gets the goal, I wish he would've stayed forgotten =/

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 10/27/2008 at 11:35 PM

 

I don't remember Kyle Calder being able to do that when he was in Detroit.

Bad rebound for Osgood but really it was a high enough initial shot that he couldn't do much else.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:36 PM

 

Another bad penalty against the Wings.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:38 PM

 

Nice, long five-on-three coming. I wondered if they would call the second hook.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:47 PM

 

Hossa says "f*ck this passing sh*t, I'll do it myself."

What a shot.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:49 PM

 

Samuelsson gets punched in the head by Quincey, retaliates and is the only one to go. Kings PP.

Ozzie with a massive save.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/27/2008 at 11:56 PM

 

You're kidding me. Samuelsson had the damn puck! How can that be goalie interference?!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 12:06 AM

 

Ugh. Pass off Lidstrom's skate and in.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 12:29 AM

 

I can't wait to hear what Babcock has to say after this game. The officiating is a f*cking joke.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 12:34 AM

 

Dr. Fil comes through! Picked off the pass and stepped in all alone on Labarbara.

sh*t, hold on for the point now.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 1:03 AM

 

Is it just me, or do Datsyuk and Hossa and Zetts and Dr. Fil look like the globetrotters out there every once in a while? It's really kind of funny.

Posted by drwmike33 on 10/28/2008 at 1:07 AM

 

Not often enough, I'd feel better if they'd do it right now.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 1:13 AM

 

Hossa hooked all over right in front of the net. What do the Kings have to do to get a penalty?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 1:14 AM

 

Ozzie with the first stop.

Pav, Hank and Hossa for Detroit.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 1:18 AM

 

Datsyuk gets the Wings on the board. Come on Ozzie!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 1:19 AM

 

Ozzie with the stop, Zetterberg can win it here...

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/28/2008 at 1:19 AM

 

Zata does it! Wings win!
