I hope Hudler brings the European tradition of not celebrating when scoring against your former team (DRW is even more special, the team that drafted him, won a cup here, and he spent many seasons here)
In all honesty I am glad he is off to a good start. He does seem like the kind of player that is going to score in this game. I wish him the best when he is not playing us, I think we should still win it. The bigger problem is Iginla has always killed us. With that said the Wings have had great success against Kipper lately as well in my recent memory.
Lets go 4-2 on the prediction, we will get a goal from one of our bottom six lines tonight. I will also enjoy the fact both Brunner and Tatar are significantly faster than Hudler at everypoint tonight.
I'm gonna go 5-2 Wings. The Nose with 2 goals, Pavs and Tats with a goal each, and Danny Cleary (YES... Dan "The Man" Cleary) with a goal. I think Hudler will pot a goal as well, its destined to happen. And last thing, Tootoo will drill Jiri with a huge hit.
I imagine we'll want a much better performance than against the Jackets. I'll go with a 4-2 win... Iginla will probably score at least one against us. Watched them the other night and their powerplay is scary.
