It’s The Young Oilers vs. The Whatever You Want To Call Them Wings

A little stat before the game starts- average age of the Oilers taking the ice tonight is 24. and for the Wings, 26.5.

With that out of the way, another must win game for Detroit as we count down those 'must win' games.

Two points needed badly or else the teams the Wings are chasing will be out of reach.

Yes, the three point games hurt the Wings badly, but instead of looking at the big picture, all concentration should be on the next shift.

Little Teemu (#56 in your program) makes his debut tonight and I would imagine if his game is on, we should see him off the fourth line duty.

Howard has to be good, real good and watch out for the Oilers, they tend to score in bunches.

Viktor Fasth is expected in goal for Edmonton, Wings need to stay in the offensive zone as long as possible and work on driving the middle of the ice.

It is a live blog bitches!

Brendan’s saying, “Why did I do that?”  He ain’t the only one.

4 syllable ridiculousness.

Maybe now they’ll try to play more in the offensive zone instead of the defensive

Good God Smith is one of the dumbest defenseman the Wings have ever had in recent memory.

Eesh, on the replay the defenseman in that corner (E52?) was calling for it. Jimmy just following defenseman queues like he’s supposed to.

Nope, it was DK calling for it in the corner.

Weird. Throw someone under the age of 39 out there and they attack the shootout with some energy and moves.

Nicely played by Jimmy against all 3 shooters.
