Manny Legace (3-0) (2.00 GAA) vs Dan Cloutier (1-0) (2.42 GAA)
(Rumblings of possibly Alex Auld????)
Wings looking to go 4-0
Can Bertuzzi - Morrison - Naslund be contained???
Can Samuelsson keep it up?
Draper and Maltby both pointless so far...
I'm excited for this one, it should be good!!! I'll say Wings win it 5-4

I'm thinking Detroit wins 5-1.
Vancouver looked a tad on the slow side (this is compared to the oilers, though...) and their defense aside from Bryan Allen, Ed Jovanovski and Mattias Ohlund was less than impressive and their PP was anemic, (Lee Goren and Nolan Baumgartner?! on their PP?!!)
Lets not even get started on Bertuzzi and his missing intensity...
The NW division this year is looking more like a crap shoot to me, now.
Seems like every year the Wings start hot and then have an absolute dud in game 4 or 5. I think they did that vs LA in 03. I would also worry that Manny is getting overworked, two back to backs in less than a week. I'd like to see Howard in there tonight because of this. I love Manny, don't get me wrong, but I don't want to see him get tired out. We need him sharp.
Haven't been able to see any teams other than the Wings thanks to Comcast screwing up my Center Ice deal. Curious to see how the Wings perform when someone actually competes with them on their level. The Canucks have the best offense of any of the teams the Wings have played so far...should be a good test.
Doh! I should have realized it was Columbus day. Yeah the US Postal Service is closed, so are most banks and I used to work in the banking industry. That's why I should have known what was up. Still, what a lame holiday to scheduletwo 1pm games on. On the bright side it'll give me something to listen to while I'm at work
Ok, time for Drapes to step it up tonight. He had a strong preseason but so far in the real games has been held pointless and is a team worst -2. This is a big game, here's hoping Kris gets it going.
