Bleh, have to listen to the NBCSN announcers again.
Dubinsky has the puck behind the net, Dubinsky centers, only one problem it was Gabby, you see Mike Emrick Dubinsky is #17 not #10...Staal keeps the puck in, no it was McD, you see Mike Emrick Staal is #18 and McD is #27...terrible to get senile....
Supposedly if the Rangers were to claim Conklin off of waivers, they would be facing Jordan Pearce. Why wouldn't they put in that claim and send him down to Hartford? Jordan Pearce had a save precentage of .875 splitting time between the AHL and ECHL this season.
Who cares, should beat Conklin or Pearce or whomever, this is a first place team that needs two points.
Maybe I'm on island here but I think this game is a huge huge game even with it being an out of conference foe. This is the Red Wings fellas and I don't care if Lidstrom,Datsyuk,Filpulla,Zetterberg, Franzen...etc all weren't playing as they would figure out a way to keep it close....just the way Detroit is. Well only Lidstrom is missing and they'll be flying.
Tonight's one of them "statement" game tests that up until recently, we were passing with flying colors. Gotta beat even a banged up Wings club to keep the good mojo that you got with the win vs Debbies and start to show that consistancy again. 3-1 Rangers says the crystal ball as Hank shows his Vezina stuff once again.
