Misconduct

Postgame: Predators @ Red Wings - 11/26

I don't know if it was the quality (or lack thereof) of the opponent but the Red Wings looked better tonight, on the second game of a back-to-back set, than they did in Boston yesterday. It felt like Detroit had the puck all game, especially in the first two periods when they limited the Predators to only eight shots.

Of course, that gets overshadowed a bit by the injury to Patrick Eaves late in the game. No news about the severity yet but that puck didn't look like it got his helmet, looked to me like he took it straight to the ear. I'm no doctor, I won't even try to guess what that means for him.

As for the Wings, they currently sit on top of the Western Conference, a position that could change by the end of the night. They own a five-game winning streak and have taken eight of their last ten. Not bad considering they started the month wrapping up a six-game losing streak.

Just over 24 hours after downing the defending champs in a shootout, the Red Wings are back at it, hosting the Nashville Predators.

Jimmy Howard gets his fifteenth consecutive start for the Wings tonight. He's been red hot but I can't believe this doesn't say something about backup Ty Conklin's place on the team right now.

Patrick Eaves, who's also had a hard time getting into the lineup, will swap in for Cory Emmerton. Eaves will play on the third line with Justin Abdelkader dropping to Emmerton's spot centering the fourth line.

No other lineup changes are expected.

Game time is 7:00. FSD has the TV.

Made the switch from 4G to Comcast and what a helluva difference in livestream quality!

Not a bad kill with another man without his stick. Could have been very bad.

Hell of a shift from the Datsyuk line. Moving the puck so well.

2 pretty obvious hooks by the kitties missed there...

Bert and Flipper?

Good on Fil for sticking with the play after Bert thought he'd scored. Very nice shot from the odd angle.

Brad Stuart giving Jimmy some help there.

Good heads up by Stewie...

Bad feeling about the fact that the Wings dominated for a period and only have a one-goal lead.

Z!!!

Great patience by Zetterberg. He needs to get going.

Can't really blame Rinne too much there, deflected at least twice on the way through.

You were saying something about not dominating?

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/26/2011 at 8:12 PM

 

Looks like Fliper's deflection was just incidental. Didn't even know where his stick was.

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/26/2011 at 8:16 PM

 

Eight shots through two periods for Nashville. Insane. But somehow I still have a bad feeling about this, "only" up by three.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/26/2011 at 8:29 PM

 

Well, the Wings haven't showed tired legs yet (knock, knock...) for playing yesterday. That's my worry. And if you're thinking trashville is one of those "pesky" teams for Detroit, I'd say you're dead on. Bad things do seem to happen more with trashville than most other teams.

Clears!!!

Making the Preds look a bit stupid there. Nice shot but great play by Helm to make it happen.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/26/2011 at 8:52 PM

 

Less worried about the Preds coming back now, more worried about dirty play. I'll be happy when this one is over.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/26/2011 at 8:53 PM

 

And then that happens. Damn.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/26/2011 at 8:54 PM

 

Helm doesn't finish. No one is surprised.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/26/2011 at 9:15 PM

 

Right in the ear. Ouch. Hope Eaves is okay.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/26/2011 at 9:17 PM

 

G* dman it all! At least Eaves is concious. Man did that look scary-ugly...

Posted by DetroitRiver on 11/26/2011 at 9:20 PM

 

Datsyuk didn't get a point but man was he all over the ice tonight.
