Misconduct

Red Wings - Rangers Pregame Notes

Pavel Datsyuk makes his return to the Detroit lineup tonight as the Red Wings host the New York Rangers. He's missed 19 games with a broken hand.

To make room for him on the roster, Jan Mursak was sent back to the Grand Rapids Griffins. Mursak was the last of the three Griffins called up when Detroit's injury troubles began to be returned to Grand Rapids.

Not ready to come back from his own broken hand is Tomas Holmstrom. He hopes to be back in the lineup later this week.

Jimmy Howard gets the start for the Wings after Joey MacDonald started in Nashville on Saturday.

The Rangers will wear their vintage alternates on the road tonight, meaning the Wings wear white at home. As they should.

Quick whistle again. Wings look horrible.

Great shift by the Helm line there, now the Rangers with pressure.

Started slow, got a bit better. Kind of surprised the Rangers didn't score.

Damn, Biron with a great stop on Franzen.

Although I will say the Wings have been buzzing!

Now that the retarded cast of VS. brings it up... This season scares me because it will be the last for #90 and possibly the last for #5... The thought of the latter sickens me.

The weather was actually nice... a whole 28 degrees, which is perfect for Hockey, and believe it or not, Japan has some pretty good programs. That being said, thanks for the welcome and I look forward to covering the rest of the season with you and MD! <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.png" />

I'm feeling like they'll both be back next year. I dunno.

I sure hope you are right... Hell... I remember Nick in the line up since 91... God I am old!

Much better period, still feel like it's not enough. Rangers still getting some good pressure.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/7/2011 at 9:09 PM

 

I feel like me turning the game on made Dr. Fil injured ): Why can't my favorite players be healthy at the same time?!!

Could see that coming. Wings chasing the puck.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/7/2011 at 9:29 PM

 

Holy f*ck. Fantastic play all around. Way to go Huds.

So I wake up this morning here in Afghanistan and find out AFN is televising the VS feed.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 2/7/2011 at 9:41 PM

 

So that was close. What happened to Flipper?

I'd say that's a good morning. Versus is better than nothing.

Awkward hit earlier.

Sparty combination!

Motherf*ck

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/7/2011 at 9:52 PM

 

Got burned on that play

Posted by DetroitRiver on 2/7/2011 at 9:52 PM

 

Indeed, Edzo, why the hell was Ericsson pinching up.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/7/2011 at 9:53 PM

 

Couldn't pick a better time for a penalty. Erricson can be a real tool.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 2/7/2011 at 9:56 PM

 

ARe you fg kidding me??????????????????

Looks like vOT

Posted by DetroitRiver on 2/7/2011 at 9:59 PM

 

Mother. f*ck.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/7/2011 at 9:59 PM

 

Holy sh*t, was that a PK

Posted by YzerFan19 on 2/7/2011 at 10:02 PM

 

I got a kick out of the fact they said "And the horn sounds and the Red Wings have won it!" before the horn sounded.

That was scary.

Posted by Mathieu_Datsyuk132351 on 2/7/2011 at 10:02 PM

 

OMFG!!! Great supper final effort by Clears with what, 25 seconds left to clear it?

Posted by DetroitRiver on 2/7/2011 at 10:02 PM

 

Well, I'm giddy. Pasha is back (I mean really back) and I finnaly got to watch a Red Wings game here in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. I am so gd sick of seeing the penisguins on AFN any time they do carry NHL. You'd think weighted coverage this year would be the Hawks or Flyers. But no, the Buttman/Crysby lovefest continues even to Central Asia.

Top 100 Datsyuk Fact: A Datsyuk hat trick consists of (1) goal, (2) assists, and (10) take-aways. This is because everything in the Datsyukian universe must add up to 13.
