Back-to-back games are always fun, aren't they? At least this one isn't a matinee...

*Editorial Note: I just dropped Gustavsson in as the starter because I hadn’t found anything regarding Babcock’s decision for tonight.

Maybe Babs will go with Monster again since he didn’t get a lot of action last night.

Again, that might just be wishful thinking on my part..

Thanks for the GDT, RM.

Looks to me like we have a solid third line, and Nyquist.

Maybe Not Hossa can extend his recent hot streak another game or two, but it’s getting a little long in the tooth, historically speaking (for length of Not Hossa hot streaks).

I would say even a loser point tonight would be a steal. Just being pragmatic here, not negative. That’s why they play the games.

Also, I detest statistics in any form, but maybe one of you pharmacists can explain Q-tards “improvement” to -8 from -14 a couple weeks ago. He certainly hasn’t done it scoring. Is is playing against less talented lines, fewer minutes? Just luck of the draw being on the ice when we score?

Back 2 back. At least we didn’t play in L.A. last nite.

Thanks Red.

I don’t know if either of these is possible….statistically.

Thanks, RedM.  I think Fleischmann just might be the most dangerous skater for the Panthers.

Or Matthias.

I just know a couple of former Wings’ draft picks are carrying that sad sack team.

Go Wings.
