Misconduct

Red Wings - Kings Pregame Notes

Chris Osgood returns to the Red Wings' crease tonight as Detroit hosts the Los Angeles Kings. This marks his first start since a 6-5 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on February 15.

Tomas Kopecky also returns to the lineup, taking his spot on the fourth line with Ville Leino moved up to the second line to take the injured Marian Hossa's spot.

Hossa, hurt during the second period of Wednesday's win over San Jose, is questionable for tomorrow's matchup in Nashville.

Chris Chelios and Brett Lebda are healthy scratches. Lebda has recovered from his back injury enough to play if called upon.

I'll probably miss the start of this one while I'm working on some projects around the house. I'll catch up as soon as I can.

Derek Meech! Great timing to pinch in.

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.
