Misconduct

Red Wings - Kings Pregame Notes

Chris Osgood gets his first start in over a month and Kris Draper makes his first appearance of the season tonight as the Red Wings visit the Los Angeles Kings.

No word on who's out to make room for Draper but it's expected to be either Patrick Eaves or Drew Miller.

Detroit is on a four game winning streak and has a chance to sweep their California road trip. The Kings started their season on a tear but are 3-7 in their last ten games.

Huds working on D for the PP... Interesting... I saw that last night as well

Stupid play by Osgood. Great stop early in the PK though.

Great shot by Ericsson. It's amazing how that injury seems to have snapped him out of his slump.

Hows Ozzie looking?

0-3 on the PP already?

Nice redirection. Damn.

Miscommunication there

Solid, a couple good saves, not much he could do on the goal.


0-3 on the PP already?


0-1, IIRC.Bertuzzi put that right where he needed to. Quick response.

I misread the event summary page. That's 0-3 (shots) on the pp. My bad.

Another damn deflection. Osgood not getting help.

Overtime. This game has gotten a bit boring, Wings playing a bit tired.

First off, someone should have been able to catch up with Kopitar there.

More importantly, Kopitar did what I wish Bertuzzi had done on Detroit's 3-on-2 chance earlier in OT.

The Kings were three across hitting the blue line but Kopitar held up, giving them a man up high to drop the puck across to. Either Bertuzzi or Stuart needed to stay up high earlier to give the Wings that same opportunity. If a defender is on Stuart in the middle and Bert is in line with Stuie, that defender is effectively covering two guys.

Overall, like I said a second ago, Wings looked tired, probably should be happy to get the point.

Agreed. Five out of six points on the road with back to back games is not bad.Side note: Does anyone else agree with the "Big E" nickname for Ericsson?
