First day of Spring.
Wow. The lockout has really messed up my innate hockey calendar.
Usually, right about now, we're getting antsy for the playoffs. We're still weeks from the trade deadline and just a little more than halfway through the season.

Nyquist in instead of Eaves per Khan.

I don't like the Lashoff-Smith pairing. Two kids competing for mistakes.

I hope he gets a goal and assist just to rub it in Babcock's face a little.

Not sure how I feel about this.

This up-down-up-down-up-down routine cannot be good for his confidence and he'll likely be sent back down as soon as Eaves is back. Why not give this one game to someone who better fits the 3rd line role and/or hasn't had a big taste of the NHL yet. If this is for one game my choice would have been Ferraro or Sheahan.
Regardless, I'm hoping for a strong game from Goose, and more importantly a win.

Agreed. Would love to see what Ferraro or Shehan could do right now on the third line.

Cleary-Andersson-Nyquist is a pretty sad line IMO.

Ferraro/Sheahan-Andersson-Nyquist would be interesting.

Yeah, mainly Ferraro since we haven't seen him up yet, and he's arguably the more versatile player of the two.

Cyborg Yzerman 03-20-2013 10:47 AM

On my spring break, so I decided to come to this game from Eastern Pennsylvania. I'm expecting a win, dammit. Also real disappointed Goose was sent back down before today's game.

EDIT: Didn't realize Gus was back in, hot damn!

Syckle78 03-20-2013 11:11 AM

Woot, game day! I hate three days between games.

Wings win 3-1

zetterberg40 03-20-2013 11:20 AM

Pumped to see Brodin play again. Pumped.

WildisLaw 03-20-2013 11:44 AM

Looking forward to a great game! :D

WingedWheel1987 03-20-2013 11:45 AM

I wonder if Nyquist just lives in his car at this point.

If Sheahan was up it should be Andersson sliding out to wing, because Riley is a better center and well already player than him.

I hope Nyquist has a good game tonight he has been the best player down in Grand Rapids by a healthy margin this season and it hasn't showed in his limited chances up in the NHL.

Needs to just play confident and not worry about being sent down, in all honesty they are going to do it anyway, let it hang out and be himself a little more.

I'm sure Babcock hopes for the same thing.

opivy 03-20-2013 12:18 PM

I want to see how Andersson and Nyquist play together. I think Cleary is a bit of a bummer to have with them but Andersson can hopefully get down low and create a little room for Gus to operate.

mindfly 03-20-2013 12:26 PM

Seeing as Minnesota is 10-4 since the last game (won 3-2) against the wings, and they're really tight defensively. It will be tough to get 2 pts from this one. It will be a tight, low-scoring snoozefest, could very well go into OT/SO. Minnesota has a slight edge, they're the hotter team atm.

DeYarmond Edison 03-20-2013 02:53 PM

Dare I say this is a must-win?

Maybe not, but it would I would enjoy the comfort of some space. We're still on the edge currently.

redwings85 03-20-2013 03:02 PM

Go Wings Go.

The Zetterberg Era 03-20-2013 03:31 PM

It is time for a Nyquist explosion.

Why not send Datsyuk to 3rd line one more time : Andersson -Datsyuk- Nyquist

:laugh::laugh:

I'm hoping for a GR line of Tatar, Nyquist, Andersson.

I know some people are terrified of an all rookie line, but Andersson and Tatar haven't looked like rookies in their time up. And they'd be playing on a third line anyway. Probably one of the more dangerous third lines in the league too.

Vladdy84 03-20-2013 03:45 PM

I'm going with 3-1 Wings.

Goals by Datsyuk, Flip(gots to get that money), and Kindl.

14ari13 03-20-2013 03:49 PM

They are a hot team, but we played very well our last 2 games, our special units finally worked well. It will be a hard fought game.
It seemed like Z and D got it going last game, so maybe they are getting hot and then our team is very hard to beat when Z and D are on the top of their game.

They can learn from Datsyuk
