Misconduct

Hossa Out Against Kings

As Malik put it, "so much for 'fine.'"

Despite having been delared fit by Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock at the end of last night's win over the San Jose Sharks, Detroit will be without Marian Hossa for at least Friday's matchup with the Los Angeles Kings.

"His neck's stiff," Babcock said.

"Day-to-day is sometimes 10 days, but I would think he would be back right away."

Hossa was injured on a hit from Douglas Murray midway through the second period.

Ville Leino - who was scheduled to be the odd-man-out in the fourth line rotation - has been moved up to Hossa's spot on the second line.

Kopy from Fil on a crazy angle.

How did that even get in?

Anyone want to blame Osgood for that one? Give 'em 40 chances on a play, they'll score.

Ozzie with 30 saves, Wings hold on for the win. Not bad.

Fairly quiet tonight :c

How was Osgood's playing? I only saw the first period and the last 10 seconds of the third.

He looked more confident. Kings didn't have a lot of great chances. Wings' D is more to fault on the one LA goal, way to many failures to clear the puck. That said, Ozzie let a tiny rebound squeak out so there's no goal if he finds a way to freeze it.
