Hey 19! Wake Up, It’s Noon, Time For A Game

I've heard rumors some of you enjoy a few adult beverages here and there, especially on the weekend, so this is my attempt to get you up and ready for puck drop at 12:37ish pm EDT.

Howard starts, Gustavsson's groin a problem so Mrazek backs-up.

I don't anticipate any changes to the lineup but since no morning skate today, we won't find out until just a few minutes before the game starts.

The Rangers look a little different since the Wings last played them, Martin St. Louis in, Ryan Callahan out.

Lundqvist in goal and the Rangers ar 6-3-1 in their last ten games.

Detroit is now 5 points behind the 3rd place Toronto Maple Leafs in the Atlantic Division but do have 2 games in-hand.

The Wings also trail the Tampa Bay Lightning, the first wild card team by 3 points but have played one less game than the Bolts.

Four teams are looking up at Detrot, all within 1-4 points behind the Wings.

So another can't afford to lose game will be played today.

Tighten up the defense boys, score some goals, leave Broadway with a win.

Simple!

Enjoy the live blog bitches.

Man, I hate Eddie O,  If that takedown would have happened to a blackhawk he would’ve be calling for rule changes.
