The Red Wings' West Coast road trip continues tonight in San Jose.
The Sharks lead the Western Conference at 8-2-0, closely followed by Detroit at 7-1-2. San Jose is also perfect at home.
Backup goalie Ty Conklin gets the start for Detroit with Chris Osgood having gone last night in Anaheim. Conklin is 3-0 this season.

Figure I'll get this out of the way now, I've got a bad feeling about tonight. Also expecting it to be a quiet night around here.

I'm a little surprised that the Wings didn't opt to go with Meech instead of Lebda on the blueline tonight. A little extra energy.

Conklin comes up huge on Thornton. Wings haven't had a chance like that yet.

Conks with another one! Massive stop on Pavelski.
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/30/2008 at 11:02 PM
That was one hell of a glove save by Conklin.

I think the Wings will be happy with the result of that period. They played pretty poorly but are still tied 0-0.
And I like that it was a relatively fast period, between the West Coast games all week, my early-morning project launch on Tuesday and playing goal in tonight's soccer game, I'm absolutely exhausted. Need a short game, not another OT game.

Hossa gets one through! Wings out in front!
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/30/2008 at 11:31 PM
Argh, I missed the goal.
Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/30/2008 at 11:39 PM
It was a quick wrister from the right circle. Seemingly-innocent but real fast.

Saw that coming as soon as Thornton went behind the net.
Rafalski blew his defensive coverage.
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/30/2008 at 11:42 PM
Thanks. But I saw this one, unfortunately. And it's all tied up.
Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/30/2008 at 11:43 PM
Seriously? How the f*ck did that get in? And you're telling me the ref never lost sight of it?
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/30/2008 at 11:46 PM
sh*t! McGinn with his first NHL goal.
Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/30/2008 at 11:47 PM
Again, left wide open in the front of the net. The defense looks like my soccer team's defense and we lost 17-3 tonight.
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/30/2008 at 11:49 PM
Oh for f*ck's sake. Just left him in front of the net.
Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/30/2008 at 11:50 PM
I didn't expect them to survive that penalty kill. But somehow the did.
Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/30/2008 at 11:58 PM
And actually looked kind of good on it. Maybe it's a start but I'm thinking that unless they score one more before the end of the period I'm going to bed and skipping the third. We'll see.
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/31/2008 at 12:00 AM
I guess I'll stick around a little longer. Not ready to quit just yet.
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/31/2008 at 12:23 AM
I think I'll watch the first five minutes. If the wings score, I carry on watching. If the sharks score I'll go to bed, and obviously if there's no change after five minutes I'll go to bed.
Posted by Britishwingsfan on 10/31/2008 at 12:25 AM
f*ck it, I'm done.
Another one with someone wide open in the slot. Right in behind Lebda.
Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/31/2008 at 12:34 AM
Oh sh*t. Now I'm definitely going to bed.

Wings just ran out of gas this game. I think sharks are really good this year and I believe this may finally be their year. Anyways, Wings need to utilize some grand rapids depth and call up some players to give others a rest and give a boost to the team's energy. Wings did a good job last year in utilizing their grand rapids talent.
