I'll guess Manny plays tonight because of the back-to-back. He's dominated the Ducks this season. Anaheim showed some life about a month ago and looked like they might get back in the playoff hunt but they've fallen off again. Gotta watch out for Fedorov...he's having a solid season and they've Ozolinsh back in the lineup. For the Wings to get four points in SoCal would be great and a couple more wins should sew up the Western Conference #1 seed. Wings 4, Ducks 2.
It seems like Detroit hasn't played very well in the second game of back to backs this season, but they've been playing pretty good so far on this road trip. According to the pregame, Maltby isn't playing tonight because he flew back to Detroit to be with his wife for the birth of their child, so Devereaux is probably playing in his place. Sounds like Schneider isn't playing also with a bad groin. :mad:
Detroit 4 - Datsyuk, Thomas, Zetterberg, Holmstrom
For Kira, Datsyuk only needs to average a PPG for the rest of the season to get the 70 point mark. The Wings have 7 games left after today, and with the 2 points tonight Datsyuk now has 63 points. Plus there is still the rest of this game for him to get points. Looks like he may get his bonus, despite being injured (and Kira can win her bet, lol)
i havent seen any of the game tonight besides the past 2 mins of the second, but i hear fisch has been brutal (reading above and my friend told me) but then again in a 5-5 game with another period left its gonna happen to someone
