Montreal To Ottawa Then To Detroit With 4 More Points

That's the goal for tonight, sweep this mini road trip and come home to rest for a few days.  Then get ready to play in New Jersey on Tuesday, March 4th, the last game before the trade deadline on March 5th at 3:00pm ET.

A win tonight and then on Tuesday may convince Holland to be a bit more aggressive in trade talks, and get the stay-at-home defenseman most feel is needed.

I will say I am a bit surprised Howard is not starting tonight, especially with the four day break coming up.

But I am not the coach and' Double Gold Mike' knows what he is doing.

Ottawa and Detroit have played 59 games andt the Senators trail the Wings by 3 points for the last wild card spot.

A four pointer tonight or less if the game goes to OT, you can do the math.

Just win, find your legs if they go out on you during the game, believe and play hard, success will be yours.

It's a live blog bitches!

Well, when I was at the game I thought that Howard looked nervous…and that damn goal scored with 30 seconds left…..not impressed. Then again, I might not be objective…

Back to back games….we could sure use the points (add a TO loss and Canadians loss)=possibilities smile

oh, HELL YEAH, 19. I have joined the new millenium. Who knew my porn computer had a wireless card? I just got DirecTV upgrade to a genie system, that delivers Hi Def to any TV in the house.

Me, I like the bedroom, with a bottle of Jameson, and no pants on. Wireless laptop, and I can LB. My Labrador in the chair nearby. I am the luckiest guy in the world.

Has GCL crapped out on anyone in the middle of the broadcast? It happened last night too. It prompted us for a sign-in.

I was thinking the same thing, although the Red Wings seem to play much worse at home during matinee games. So far none at the Joe this season, which I believe is a good thing.
