Red Wings - Blackhawks Pregame Notes

Thanks to the Winter Classic, Detroit's annual New Year's Eve game has been bumped up a day, giving us the first game of the home-and-home with Chicago tonight.

Chris Chelios remains in the lineup as Nicklas Lidstrom is staying out for another game. Derek Meech could also be back in as Mikael Samuelsson has been ill and may not be able to play.

Ty Conklin gets the start.

The Blackhawks are riding a franchise-high winning streak and by sweeping the Wings in these two days could tie them for first place in the Central Division.

Joke of a goalie interference call on Homer to start the game. What a surprise.

Bahhh. I don't know what to say. I'm just happy this isn't like Saturday. I hope they keep the pressure on?

I do loves me some Pavel Datsyuk <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

That was fast. He's been trying that shot out a lot, lately. Or at least the last few games.

I was gonna say the same thing. He and Homer are really on the same wavelength lately with Holmstrom being in the right spot to screen those hard snappers Datsyuk is trying out.

That was way too close.

Versteeg had half the goal to aim at. Really got away with that one.

J.M.F. Franzen! Suck it, bitches. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Wow, top shelf by Franzen.

Go Kane! Get yourself suspended right before the Winter Classic. Tool.

Oh uh. I hope Homer's ok. I didn't see what happened, just saw him leaving.

Oh wow. That was super fast <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

Franzen with his second.

I'm not going to say the obvious in fear of jinxing <3

Kopecky makes it 4-0 <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" /> Over the leg. Awesome.

Fil totally got away with grabbing the puck and then made a beautiful pass to Kopy. Very nice.

So much for the 'Hawks being as good as the Wings.

Actually, I think I'll say more about that in my postgame blog.

Great game for the wings, one of their best performances of the year against a red hot team!
