Priorities Set, Win In D.C. Then Start The Party

The Super Bowl festivities can wait until around 3:00pm or so today and a win against the Capitals would help us enjoy the game tonight.

No GDT today due to an early game plus 'Red" is probably still in bed, so instead we start the Live Blog a bit early.

Not much needs to be said about the game since the Wings faced the Capitals on Friday.

What is important today- get on the plane boys with two more points.

The Canucks are waiting in Detroit for the matchup tomorrow night so securing two more points today is key.

The only advice I have for the game is contain Ovechkin and keep an eye on Backstrom.

Jimmy needs to be good again and the defensive zone coverage cannot break down.

And stay out of the penalty box.  Washington can score in bunches if the door is left open, so keep it closed today.

Enjoy, get ready to party and it's a live blog bitches!

Spending way too much in our zone to support a mediocre Jimmy.  Guess where this game’s going.

If the Wings do not make the playoffs this season it will be because of goaltending.

Even with the amazing amount of injuries, it will be goaltending that will be our downfall,that’s how poor it is.

the most distressing part is that this seems to be a trend through this career: the ability to give up answer goals in the blink of an eye.

I’m not a Howard fan, but what the F was Jimmy supposed to do on that one? If Smitty plays either the puck or puts a real check on Ward, there is no goal. That puck was sitting out of Jimmah’s reach. He was a sitting duck let down by shitty D play

Nice slash,Bouwer. The old habits of playing dirty as a Hawk and getting away with it must die hard.
