thnx again TG. Afternoon games must be easier to handle for you european fans.
I think Wings can make good use of the home advantage. Go Wings!
You have no idea! I am psyched to finally watch my first playoff game this year. I can't stay up until 5 a.m. now (unless it's the finals), so I'm going to enjoy all the games played in Detroit.
I hope the Wings can take advantage of some home ice and carry the momentum from the last game and get a better grip on these series. Helm's line seemed to struggle last game, so I want to see this guy speeding down the ice and making some nice plays. Some more of the same from the other lines and most importantly, we need to see a much more sharp Howard in net. A win would probably give him some confidence and settle down into the playoff atmosphere, we need him to be on fire if we want to have a chance at all to win this whole thing.
btw, isn't it odd that every series being played at the moment is having the same result? All the series are tied at 1 and Washington seem to be transforming into the SJ of the East. They seriously need some PK skill. Talking about PK, how about improving that today, huh? Take less penalties but keep those hits coming.
Good luck Red Wings! A win for my first live game would be awesome. And ofcourse, thanks TG, excellent work as always!
Vest also confirms Rob Longley's suggestion that the Coyotes might add Jim Vandermeer to their lineup...
Coyotes center Vernon Fiddler, who suffered an upper-body injury late in Game 2 and did not return, likely will return to the lineup today. If he doesn’t, center Robert Lang would play in the series for the first time unless Tippett opts to go with seven defensemen. If that’s the case, Jim Vandermeer or Mathieu Schneider would be inserted into the lineup.
