**also: too bad Brunnstrom couldn't be back for that game - we'd be operating at full swede power then
Despite the improvement on dallas' play im really not looking forward to the red wings game for the following reasons..

1) they are coming of a loss---> highly motivated...
2) Datsyuk and Lidstrom will be in "send a message to the NHL" mode----> highly scary
3) Zetterberg has no contract pressure any more----> high tension released (i think it was playing on his mind)
4) they allowed a hat trick yesterday ----More motivation...

I have a bad feeling they will take all this out on Dallas...especially Datsyuk..and we have no answer for Pavel...

I hope im wrong, but i thin the wings will be breathing fire...we need every bounce to go our way or we could be in trouble

(and im not usually that pessimistic..)

i know that ott-ribs-lehtinen will be together, but we really need a checking line against Detroit top line and they have to hold if we are to have any hope...I was thinking somethin like

Lundqvist-Sutherby-Peterson

VS

Holmstrom-Datsyuk-Hossa

then let our other guys get some pts...

Lundy and Toby were 2 of 3 guys (eriksson) who had good success against the Datsyuk line in last years WCF's...maybe its worth trying them again...
