Misconduct

Rafalski Out, Kindl to Make NHL Debut

The Red Wings are down yet another player, as Brian Rafalski will miss tonight's matchup with the Edmonton Oilers with a sore back. Jakub Kindl, called up yesterday from the Grand Rapids Griffins, will make his NHL debut.

That's the only lineup change for Detroit.

Up front, Ville Leino and Todd Bertuzzi will switch lines as coach Mike Babcock tries to get Pavel Datsyuk going.

Jimmy Howard will get the start in net.

Game time is 7:00, moved up from the originally-scheduled time of 7:30.

The Oilers have the first goal.

Awhile ago the Oilers got a second goal.

Cleary just scored right before the period ended. That was a good goal.

Two more Oilers goals. Now 4-1.

Although the Wings aren't playing completely sh*tty, it's a little discouraging to realize as Mickey or Ken said that 4 goals (now 5) had been scored, and the Wings had scored 3 of them, 2 own goals. I almost quit watching. I hope to see them come out flying in the third....Who else can get hurt?!

"Who else can get hurt?"

Well, that question is answered...hope I didn't jinx them....

I missed pretty much the whole thing. I don't think I'm going back to watch it.

The good news is that the Wings think Ericsson is okay.

At least FC TSC only had one own-goal against in our 6-5 win.
