Minnesota Wild @ Detroit Red Wings 1/25/13 6:30 PM CT



*WARNING ALL FINNS: The GDT may be Swedish themed*

It is the first away game of the season for the Wild. 31,345 - (~)550 = (~)30,795 miles will be left to travel.

Last game played between the Wild and Red Wings ended 6-0 in favor for the Red Wings.

The Red Wings have been troubled with injuries. There's a few who could possibly lay their skates on the
ice tonight (*) but the list is rather long; Jakub Kindl*, Darren Helm*, Todd Bertuzzi*, Ian White, Carlo Colaiacovo and Jonathan Ericsson.

Marco Scandella and Jared Spurgeon are out for the Wild because of injuries.

Tonight's the night many of us Wild fans have been waiting for. We've already got to see Parise, Suter and Granlund in action but one anticipated fellow has yet to represent the Wild. That fellow is no other than Swedish defenseman Jonas Brodin (age 19). This mobile and good puck moving defenseman has established himself as one of the top prospects in the world. He (most likely) will get debut tonight in the arena of one his biggest idols Nicklas Lidström. Kim Johnsson was the last Swede to play for the Wild (2010)

Tonight's official song selection:





Minnesota Wild

Home 2-1-0 (4 points, 2nd in the Northwest division)
Away -

Projected lineup:

Dany Heatley - Mikko Koivu - Zach Parise
Matt Cullen - Mikael Granlund - Devin Setoguchi
Pierre-Marc Bouchard - Kyle Brodziak - Cal Clutterbuck
Torrey Mitchell - Darroll Powe - Zenon Konopka

Ryan Suter - Tom Gilbert
Jonas Brodin - Clayton Stoner
Justin Falk - Nate Prosser

Harding

Top scorer: Zach Parise with 1 goal, 3 assist = 4 points

Detroit Red Wings

Home 0-1-0
Away 0-1-1
(2 points, last team on Central division)

Projected lineup:

Valtteri Filppula - Pavel Datsyuk - Todd Bertuzzi
Johan Franzen - Henrik Zetterberg- Damien Brunner
Daniel Cleary - Darren Helm - Patrick Eaves
Drew Miller - Justin Abdelkader - Jordin Tootoo

Niklas Kronwall - Brian Lashoff
Brendan Smith - Kyle Quincey
Jakub Kindl - Kent Huskins

Jimmy Howard

Top scorer: Pavel Datsyuk with 1 goal, 2 assists = 3 points.

Love the paint logos.

And aren't we 2-1-0, not 2-0-1?

BTW, why is Colorado leading the division? With identical P's, GP's and ROW's, the next tie-breaker should be "The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs.", in which case the Wild should be ahead. Not that it matters at this point of the season, but still seems weird.

Yaaay it's gameday! Set phone alarm to 2:30. Then it's time for some Wild hockey.

Expecting a 4-1 win, 2nd line stepping it up.

Eh, who cares? If we win tonight, we take the lead. That's what matters.

****ing Columbus can't do anything right. Lose 0-3 last night against the Avs. Ridiculous.

But yeah, I'm really not sure, to be honest. Oh well. Nothing we can do about it.

Except get drunk while cheering on the Wild.

A Swedish themed GDT, you say?



Good work with the GDT.

Didn't realize all the injuries Detty is going through right now, although it looks like Helm, Bertuzzi and Kindl will be playing tonight.

I'm just hoping we won't see Tootoo/Kronwall crush the living **** out of Granlund/Brodin.

And a win, of course.

Harding. He seems to be the only goalie we have who can win in Detroit. It's kind of weird.

Should've put this in the OP:




Other than that, love the paint logos. And now that it's not my GDT, we might actually win this.

sore foot. if they're keeping Dumba even with Brodin back in action it must not be ready to go. Again, let me take this moment to remind everyone I predicted this.

Probably no chance Dumba plays with Brodin getting his first start, too. Thought they'd give him one showing before sending him back.
