It’s An Original Six Meeting - Montreal vs. Detroit

Look here, game starts at 7:00pm ET just in case you did not know.

Howard vs. Price is the key tonight.  Jimmy has to be on top of his game.

Defense needs to tighten up and get the puck out of the defensive zone.

Babcock said today the opposition has the puck 66% of the time so all the Wings do is check.

So how about turning that checking into a forecheck and put some pressure on the Habs' defense?

Also noted from the last two games is Detroit seemed to forget about attacking the middle offensive zone.  Do it and success will follow.

Win, score one more goal and get ready for the 12:30pm start on Saturday against Boston at the Joe.game in Toronto on Saturday night. Duh!

Let's make it a very lively blog, bitches.

I thought interference when he first fell, he didn’t have the puck did he?

oh to have defensemen who can move the puckā€¦

That’d be the goalies fault, again.

Howard should have stopped that guy.

he made the initial save, but Brendan Gallagher still dribbled into the net. Typical.
