Misconduct

Red Wings - Blue Jackets Lineup Notes

Darren McCarty, back from his one-game stint with the Grand Rapids Griffins, will miss tonight's Red Wings - Blue Jackets matchup. McCarty tweaked a groin injury at Detroit's morning skate.

Derek Meech will remain at forward to replace McCarty on the fourth line after originally expecting to be a healthy scratch.

The only other major lineup change from Wednesday's loss to Montreal is the return of Dan Cleary, who will skate alongside Valtteri Filppula and Jiri Hudler on the third line.

Chris Osgood will replace Ty Conklin in the Red Wings' crease.

It will be nice to have Clears back in the lineup. I also saw that Chelios was skating at practice and he should be making a return early next month.

Cheli looks to be a week away, by all reports. But he's been quick to say that he needs a "preseason" of sorts.

Ohio must've done something wrong the day it was blessed with the Blue Jackets <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/cool.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.png" />

I don't want to be over-confident or cocky, but the Wings shouldn't be outplayed tonight. So that's a reason to be optimistic. I'd like to see Dr. Fil do something!

Commodore in the box, so hopefully the 'best power-play in the league' gets something going!

Anyone heard the results of the Ice Classic darwing today?

First PP here we go.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 7:41 PM

 

Power play looked awful, couldn't even cleanly gain the zone.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/28/2008 at 7:43 PM

 

PK time

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 7:45 PM

 

Columbus looked far far worse on their PP

Friggin' post. That's how it's going right now.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/28/2008 at 8:00 PM

 

Don't that beat it all... Nuts

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 8:02 PM

 

Like I said, that's how it's going right now. When was the last time the Wings had a puck bounce right to them at the side of the net? Of course, I'd rather have that happen now than in the spring.

effing linesmen!!!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 8:07 PM

 

Linesman jumps in quick to protect Torres. What a little bitch.

Zata makes 'em pay!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/28/2008 at 8:10 PM

 

Wooooo hooooo!!!

1 -1

Good d by Franz as well

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 8:10 PM

 

Wings get probably their best chance of the period (including on the goal) but litterally run out of time. Damn.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/28/2008 at 8:15 PM

 

Big stop by Ozzie on Huselius.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/28/2008 at 8:38 PM

 

Awesome. Wings take the lead. Hudler with the goal.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 11/28/2008 at 8:45 PM

 

Another power play goal! Great job for Huds to stay with it.

And on that note, I'm on my way out. Got a soccer game tonight so I'll be catching up with the rest of the Wings game later.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/28/2008 at 8:46 PM

 

Hudler on the Powerplay! Just. Very cynical trip by Commodore for the penalty, serves him right with that goal.

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 11/28/2008 at 8:46 PM

 

Go on Lilja! Glad the linesmen stayed out of that one.

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 11/28/2008 at 8:49 PM

 

Good PK

Good chance for Hossa

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 8:57 PM

 

Urgh. All tied up again.

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 11/28/2008 at 9:01 PM

 

Hossa! 3-2!

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 11/28/2008 at 9:04 PM

 

OK. This web page is giving me some real problems tonight.

Despite the lucky goal, Ozzie has been looking real good tonight. Wings are really good on the D so they need to keep the puck and keep it on the offensive end for the W tonight.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 9:12 PM

 

I hate to say that was classic Ozzie. But that was classic Ozzie. NUTS!!!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 9:28 PM

 

Hossa again!! Back in the lead!

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 11/28/2008 at 9:56 PM

 

Hossa gets his second goal to make it 4-3 with two minutes left.

Awesome. Not going to say anything else because I am feeling a bit superstitious tonight.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 11/28/2008 at 9:56 PM

 

Draper with the empty net to get his first goal of the year. Yay for him! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" />

Also first short-handed goal this season. Did not know that! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Draper with the EN, win wrapped up.

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 11/28/2008 at 10:00 PM

 

Nice shorthander by Drapes. Night all!

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/28/2008 at 10:03 PM

 

A few notes now that I've gotten caught up...

Maybe it's because I had a rough night in goal myself tonight but I feel bad for Osgood more than blame him on the long goal. He bounced back and made some good saves in the third and his team really bailed him out.

Leclaire did the same, Hossa's GWG was an awful goal to give up but then he turned around and made an absolutely insane save on Franzen.

Funny that Draper can hit the net on a backhander from his own end but can't finish on a 2-on-1.

In all, no complaints, though there probably should be.

Yeah He's playing like he did back in the day--that's not good at all.
