Misconduct

Red Wings - Blues Pregame Notes

Some late night notes for the afternoon matchup between the Red Wings and Blues on Saturday...

Marian Hossa will return to the Detroit lineup, making his first appearance since last time the Wings were in St. Louis. He skated on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Dan Cleary in practice. Derek Meech is out to make room.

Tomas Holmstrom, who had been skating on the third line since his return from surgery, was skating with Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen on Friday.

Chris Osgood will get the start. My prediction is that if he plays well he'll get the start again on Sunday, with Mike Babcock sending a message to Ty Conklin. That's a big "if" with how this season's gone for Ozzie, though.

Just because I haven't done it yet today, let me say that I hate afternoon games. It's beautiful outside, it's almost warm, and I've got stuff to do. I guess it's better than the weeknight late games we'll be subjected to in a couple weeks, though.

Datsyuk with a good chance early. That would have been huge.

I didn't even realize the game was on right now! I went downstairs at two for some dunch and was flipping through the channels and....there was the end of Red Wings Live! Now that's what I call luck <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/sleep.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="-_-" border="0" alt="sleep.png" />

I hope this game is not a flop.

Great chance, Mason gets all spun around, can't put it in. Damn.

>:c you and your schedule! My calendar has the game dates & times on it, I just don't give it the time of day because it's in an awkward spot. + that one discussion on here about hockey not being a afternoon sport totally supports this. The game just popped out of nowhere and caught me off guard.+ Happy to see Hossa back today. I hope this Mason isn't as good as the Jackets' one.

"Really smart play by Maltby" You don't hear that too often! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/sleep.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="-_-" border="0" alt="sleep.png" />

Stuart off his man. Way to blow that one.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 2:36 PM

 

That's not good :|

Oh, darn. we need the 1st&2nd period Wings from the last game!

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 3/14/2009 at 2:39 PM

 

Osgood tripped in the crease, no call.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 2:44 PM

 

It's so wrong that I'm looking at that period and saying "At least it wasn't as bad as the last period the Wings played."

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 2:46 PM

 

What a move by Datsyuk! And a great pass by Stuart to make up for the missed coverage in the first period.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:07 PM

 

Another! Way to go Kopy! Let the bitchsmacking begin!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:08 PM

 

Back-to-back goals is pretty kickass. <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/sleep.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="-_-" border="0" alt="sleep.png" />

...And that's even better <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/sleep.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="-_-" border="0" alt="sleep.png" /> Who scored that last one? I missed it.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 3/14/2009 at 3:10 PM

 

Three in less than a minute and now a power play. Crazy.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:11 PM

 

It's been, like, 90 seconds since they last scored. Wings should have declined the penalty, they were doing fine without it.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:13 PM

 

Not that it should have been, but that would have been goalie interference if it were Homer. Another Blues goal due to bad D, never should have been an odd-man rush.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:17 PM

 

Nobody mention the Arby's thing and it might happen! :c

Datsyuk with 2 goals !

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 3/14/2009 at 3:38 PM

 

That never should have gone through. Ridiculous screen. Mason's gotta be going nuts.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:38 PM

 

Chris Mason is out. Can't say that's a surprise.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:57 PM

 

Fil's out. Back spasms. Damn.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 3:58 PM

 

Backes threw punches there, that should be a penalty.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 4:19 PM

 

Big stop by Ozzie. Gotta kill this.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 4:23 PM

 

Zata with the ENG. And the Blues are bitter whiny thugs.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 3/14/2009 at 4:29 PM

 

Not a crappy Saturday game! HUZZAH.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 3/14/2009 at 4:33 PM

 

Can't complain about that one. Came back strong from the weak first period. Solid, solid game from Osgood. Good overall, aside from Fil going out.
