Red Wings - Flames Pregame Notes

The Red Wings wrap up their four-game homestand tonight, hosting the Calgary Flames.

For the Flames it will be there third game in four nights, meaning that backup goalie Curtis McElhinney will likely get the start. Ty Conklin will make his second start in a row for Detroit after picking up a 5-4 shootout win over the Blackhawks on Saturday.

Mike Babcock juggled the Red Wings' lines in practice this week but will sticking with the combinations used on Saturday for Wednesday's game. The lone change is Kirk Maltby's return to the lineup, leaving Derek Meech as a healthy scratch.

It's a kids game but it's great for chat.

I have a club set up called "NHLers" for anyone who wants to chat hockey.

I'm going to the game in Dallas on Friday. I hope Babs has the new lines in play then.

Great D by Kronner on the two-on-one.

Damnit, off Datsyuk and in. Don't see enough of those going the other way.

I hate Todd Bertuzzi.

Langkow with the goal. Hmm. As the commentators keep saying, the net was 'wide open'. Not good. But I still feel calm. I mean, look at what happens to all the Wings' two goal leads!

Urgh, Langkow makes it 2-0.

Flames 14 shots

Wings 10 shots

Dats/Hossa line is -2

Lids -1

Not a typical Red Wings period in any fashion

HOLY LORD, DRAPER JUST FINISHED!

Edit - Dr. Fil, which is even better in my book <3

Holy f*ck, Draper hit the net. Oh, wait, no he didn't, it was deflected in. Intentional or not, I'll take it.

Filppula got the last touch.Come on!

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 12/10/2008 at 8:45 PM

 

OK. I'm listening in on the radio and it sounds like the Wings showed up

"Don't try that sh*t, Stuart, I'll snap your neck."

Bet no one gets suspended for that.

Wow, third delay of game on the night for Calgary.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 12/10/2008 at 9:37 PM

 

Awful, awful call on Franzen. That's bullsh*t.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 12/10/2008 at 9:38 PM

 

Oh sh*t, 3-1 to Calgary, Moss on the PP from Franzen's penalty . Franzen was trying to duck out of the way of the puck on that call, how the hell was that interference?

Zata says "Learn to control your rebound, bitch."

Way to go Raffy! Tie game!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 12/10/2008 at 9:52 PM

 

Yes! 3 all.

Posted by Britishwingsfan on 12/10/2008 at 9:54 PM

 

Both teams get their chances in the final seconds.

Wings don't deserve the point they get out of this. If they win, they deserve the second point. They don't deserve the first.

Lidstrom with the overtime winner.

Good for him <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/toothless.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":hockeysmiley:" border="0" alt="toothless.gif" />

Goal! Nicklas Lidstrom with a f*cking blast and Pavel Datsyuk with the screen?!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 12/10/2008 at 10:13 PM

 

Woohoo! Lidstrom clinches it in OT.
