Red Wings - Flames: Detroit Lineup Notes

The Red Wings continue their Western Canada road trip Saturday night in Calgary but there are already lineup reports coming in for tomorrow night's game.

Khan says that the Wings will have Niklas Kronwall back in the lineup but that Tomas Holmstrom will remain out. Derek Meech will be shifted to forward to cover for the open roster spot on wing.

Tomas Kopecky remains on Detroit's top line, taking Holmstrom's spot alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Marian Hossa. Meech will skate with Kris Draper and Darren McCarty on the fourth line.

Ty Conklin gets the start.

Kopecky on the top line with Dats and Hossa should be interesting since he looked real good on the power play at Edmonton. Any word on when we can expect Cheli to rejoin the lineup?

I was just thinking about that earlier today. We've heard nothing about Cheli except that it's not going well. He was originally supposed to be out 4-6 weeks but we've hit the six week point with nothing.

OK, so its 10:05 EST and I'm watchin NHL Center Ice and they're still showing the MTL/BOS game

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 10:06 PM

 

Not on FSN yet, either, so you're safe so far.

Interesting. Apparently if a goalie dives on the puck but then slides into the no-play zone in the corner it's not illegal. Never knew that.

OK so the MTL/BOS game ends in 2 OT with BOS on top. Give me the Wings!!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 10:20 PM

 

Booyaaa!! They join the game just in time to see Maltby ding one in!!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 10:23 PM

 

Maltby from Lilja. Sure we couldn't work Samuelsson or Lebda in on that to get all of the least-loved Wings in on one goal?

Real nice play.

First power play shift looked good but the second had some trouble.

I'm going to have a good holiday season. On 226 December, I go up to DC to see the Caps play. On the 27th we fly into Detroit and an the 30th we have seats behind the glass for the Hawks game. On New Years Eve, we take the Amtrak Wolverine to Chigago and on New Years Day we're going to the Winter Ice Classic. I'm entered in the drawing but either way I WILL get tickets to the game.

They looked out of position on this PP

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 10:38 PM

 

Congrats on the Winter Classic tickets. I'm in the contest and watching the resellers, not sure if I'm buying anything yet.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/22/2008 at 10:39 PM

 

I you don't win the draw go to the Hawks website and check with ticket exchange. These are usually the best prices.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 10:43 PM

 

D-Mac has been looking really good this year

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 10:48 PM

 

Not to stay too off-topic, but I thought TicketExchange couldn't have those tickets because the NHL hasn't officially made them available yet. Weird. I'd been watching StubHub. I see prices I like but it's not just up to me, I've got family in on this too.

Maybe your right but either way, I'll get tickets from the draw, ticketexchange, stubhub, or etc. I'm going to the game.

Ahh, got it. Thought you already had the tickets. I've been keeping a close eye on that stuff so it surprised the hell out of me.

Wings need to score on this power play, Calgary's gonna get some eveners soon.

Not this time but there was better presure on the PP. Kipper will keep the Flame in the game tonight.

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

 

You knew there'd either be a penalty or a goal the way the Wings were scrambling there. I'm glad it was a penalty.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/22/2008 at 11:12 PM

 

Conklin's in the Z tonight

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 11:26 PM

 

Boooyaaa!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 11:27 PM

 

That's why you shoot the puck! Two-goal lead, that never should have happened. There's the Lebda play I was asking about earlier.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/22/2008 at 11:28 PM

 

You're kidding me. That was really bad. I let one in like that in my soccer game last night but I'm not paid to stop 'em.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/22/2008 at 11:29 PM

 

That was a BS eripping call but glad to see we survived

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 11:35 PM

 

Yeah, not happy with that call but it doesn't surprise me. Eveners.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/22/2008 at 11:37 PM

 

Holy hell, how many ways can you miss on one shift?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/22/2008 at 11:41 PM

 

That period felt like it lasted forever. Glad to see it over, Wings defense started loosening up a bit at the end there, feels like they could use the intermission.

It looked like the Wings were on a PP. I loved the staredown between Lidsy and Kipper. Too bad it didn't go in.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/22/2008 at 11:49 PM

 

Bad tripping call. Also can't believe interference wasn't called on Regher a couple shifts ago.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/23/2008 at 12:11 AM

 

Knew that was coming. Give 'em enough chances...

It was already even at that point, each team had three power plays. Calgary got their fourth and scored on it.Of course, I hate the idea of eveners anyway. I'm always screaming for consistency.

f*cking rocket from Hudler! Holy sh*t, I didn't know he could do that.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/23/2008 at 12:22 AM

 

YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! Go HUDS!!!!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/23/2008 at 12:23 AM

 

What a move by Pavs! No idea how he stayed with the puck.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/23/2008 at 12:34 AM

 

BOOOOYYAAAAA PAVS!!!!!!!!!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/23/2008 at 12:34 AM

 

Hossa with the ENG, this one's over.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/23/2008 at 12:37 AM

 

Goodnight
