Defense And The Monster Are The Keys Tonight

Okay, my turn to end this absurd stretch of bad games.

The lines have been changed up and probably will be tweaked again during the game.

The defense remains the same and let's see if they Wings can finally get their defensive issues straightened out.  The D-zone breakout is key in order for the Wings to be successful but lately it has been hit or miss.

"The Monster" is between the pipes and I am looking forward to watching "the puck hitting him again tonight."

It's a live blog bitches!

Not surprisingly no mention of Ericsson leaving on the TB feed, but even had they noticed they probably would have said it was Smith leaving as their having serious problems with matching names and numbers of the Wings so far this period.

Yeah, let Sammy shoot from the point.  That always works to everyone who’s NOT wearing red’s advantage.

Scary couple of seconds there, but otherwise it’s a fine period of hockey for the Wings.
