Misconduct

Pregame Notes: Sharks @ Red Wings - Game Three

I'm going to make a prediction. I never make predictions out of superstition but this time I'm breaking that rule.

If the Red Wings win Game Three and Game Four, they'll win this series.

No, Detroit has not played well in the first two games against the Sharks. Yes, Jimmy Howard has had to bail them out a bit. That said, San Jose hasn't been spectacular either.

Antti Niemi has allowed only two goals but I'm not sure he's had to face a shot off a rebound all series. San Jose has scored a power play goal, a goal that may have well been a power play goal (that also came on a bounce off a defenseman), another PPG, and a goal off a fluky bounce.

The Sharks are definitely controlling the puck but they haven't been dominant, either.

Detroit has shown at times that they can flip the switch. If they do it tonight, this is an entirely different series.

There don't appear to be any lineup changes for San Jose. For the Wings, Drew Miller is out in favor of Kris Draper.

Game time is 8:00. TV is weird for this one; FSD locally with Versus joining the game in progress after the Bruins and Flyers. Center Ice and GCL will have the game in full, supposedly for free.

Okay, Ben Eager is out for San Jose. He played, what, three minutes last game?

What a pass by Zata to set that up. I'll take confusion that ends with a goal, don't all have to be clean.

I have to suffer the rest of the PHI/BOS game before I get any coverage of this game.

Way to stick with the puck, Eaves. I thought Nichol swatted that in for a bit.

More great puck movement. Nice shot by Pasha.

Wow! The vets come through...

Another PK. Terrifying at this point.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/4/2011 at 10:13 PM

 

Looked like a bogus call.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 5/4/2011 at 10:15 PM

 

We need another goal...

Posted by DetroitRiver on 5/4/2011 at 10:29 PM

 

Wings all spun around and we're tied back up. Who was in the slot covering no one?

Posted by YzerFan19 on 5/4/2011 at 10:33 PM

 

Fother Mucker!!!

Well. f*ck. f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck f*ck.

Hey GM time to start doing something now... team is pushover. To comfortable with the makeup of the team. The D pairs are just too slow as ive mentioned 50 times. Overall the forwards are mainly finesse and oh forget it, no one is listening or cares really haha.

Will this be Nick's last season?
