Red Wings - Flames Pregame Notes

The Red Wings are back at it tonight after a four-night break, hosting the Calgary Flames.

Johan Franzen will return to the lineup, missing only one game after taking an elbow to the face from Mark Fistric in Dallas last week. That's the only lineup change for Detroit, with no one coming out as the team iced only seventeen skaters last Sunday.

Jimmy Howard gets the start in net. Calgary may be going with their backup, Henrik Karlsson.

This is the first meeting in a four game series. Last year the Flames won both games at the Joe however, the Flames are coming off of the second game in a four in six night road trip. They won 1-0 in overtime against the Preds in their last game.

On paper the Wings lead in all categories except PK% and Shots per game.

Jimmy with a couple decent shots from what I've seen so far. Better than I did, that's for sure.

Well f*ck. That looks familiar.

You could see that one coming. Very, very nice.

Datsyuk deked Backlund about six times to get the puck to Lidstrom. Nice.

Modano still needs more shoot.

Well this'll be interesting. Looks good to me.

Edit: That's a hell of a bounce. Wow.

I think Jimmy dove a bit there.

Kronner, what the f*ck was that?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/21/2010 at 9:45 PM

 

Awful-looking powerplay there. Ugh.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/21/2010 at 9:52 PM

 

Never expect to see that from Bertuzzi. He jumped to get free and that was great shot.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 10/21/2010 at 9:56 PM

 

Mickey's right, Jimmy's the first star tonight.
