Friday the 13th Pregame Notes

It's Friday the 13th and the Red Wings are hoping it won't be unlucky for them as they face the Blue Jackets in Columbus. By my records, Detroit is 3-2-1 in franchise history on Friday the 13th, with a two-game losing streak.

Derek Meech comes into the Wings' lineup to replace the injured Brett Lebda. That's the only lineup change for the Red Wings as Chris Osgood gets a second start in as many nights.

Steve Mason gets the start for Columbus, returning from a bout with mono.

The Red Wings' full Friday the 13th history?

12/13/1940 - 3-2 W vs. NY Rangers
11/13/1981 - 3-3 T at Washington
11/13/1992 - 8-0 W vs. Pittsburgh
10/13/1995 - 9-0 W vs. Edmonton
11/13/1998 - 5-1 L vs. Dallas
10/13/2006 - 3-2 SOL (2-1) vs. Buffalo

Missed the first few minutes, caught them on the radio. Columbus radio guys are frikkin' annoying. No idea how the Blue Jackets' goal was scored, just that it was.

I don't think I knew Lidstrom could pretend to be Datsyuk. I guess it makes since with Pavs being so good defensively that there'd have to be some overlap the other way.

Maybe Nick's been playing in the wrong position all these years after all.

That chance there only happened 'cause Williams got away with interference on Kronwall.

Osgood got a piece of it, so close to keeping it out.

Mikey! Nice, nice shot. Helm should have had his first regular season point, forcing the turnover.

What a surprise, a two-on-one and the Blue Jackets score. Defense?

Damnit. Buffalo better come up big tonight.

One short, oh well. I didn't see much of the game, cause I was getting my computer revamped <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

And I must say, yes, it is revamped.

Lidstrom's goal was cool.
