GDT - Game 30: Red Wings (14-10-5) host Wild (16-10-2) 7:30

The Western Conference standings are tighter than Adrian Dantley's wallet.  The Wings 33 pts have them holding onto the 7th spot at the moment, 3 pts out of 4th place, and only 3 pts in front of 10th place CBJ.  Jobu was apparently in charge of Tuesday's practice;  Eaves is questionable after being hit in the mellon by a puck, Datsyuk has the flu, and Hank has the runs.

MIN have passed VAN and lead the Northwest.

Time to pull an Al Davis; just win, baby.

Top o’ the morning Okie.
2 points in regulation would be fanfreakingtastic.

Thanks Okie. I just hope someone cleans Setoguchi’s clock after that non-suspendable dirty hit to Q the last time they played. Poor Toots looks worse for wear and needs a stand in tonite. But who?

Thank you, Okie Jeff.

Eaves out, Gus in,

Ima guessing the drive to Detroit is a much happier trip than the drive back to GR.

Thanks Okie!

LGRW!!!!!

Muchas gracias, Amigo.  Saluting your GDT this morning with donuts and a piping hot mug of Java’s finest.

Time to pull an Al Davis; just win, baby.

Aye.  Glad to have Nike on Dangles’ wing.  Wait…


“I should know better, Boss.”

Referees:
Dave Jackson-8
Tom Kowal-32

Linesmen:
Scott Cherrey-50
Steve Miller-89

If there is a ref who attempts to call a more credible game than Jackson, please don’t let him find Jackson’s School of Referee’s sponsored by Gary.Ass.  We’re gonna be an angry bunch even before the puck’s dropped.
