Red Wings-Panthers live blog: just relax and play?

The Detroit Red Wings parlayed a strong last-week-of-November record into winning two of four December games and 1 of their past 3, including Saturday night's ugly, lethargic 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

The Wings are making their first trip to Florida as members of the Atlantic Division, and they tangle with the Panthers tonight (7:30 PM, FSD/FS Florida/WXYT AM) and the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

Tonight, the Wings will have Pavel Datsyuk back in the lineup, Jimmy Howard in the net and a Stephen Weiss with something to prove against his previous employer--and Mike Babcock telling the press that Mr. Weiss simply needs to relax while also issuing something of an, "I don't like you" warning to HBO's 24/7 crew.

Yzerman's participating and probably playing in the Alumni Showdown, if only briefly, Pavel Datsyuk can catch fish pretty decently, the NHL will hold something of a pre-Winter Classic party outside Michigan Stadium on January 1st...

And it's a live blog, friends, enemies and members of the James Earl Jones For Crisp Lady club.

Bert should’ve finished there on a brilliant feed from Not Hossa.

Alfie tripped and Wings go on the PP.

Wings should’ve had two goals on the last four possessions.

Konichiwa bitches!

I see Cleary is getting the Homer calls, now if he could just play Homer’s game, he may make himself worth while after all.

Replay shows Cleary NOT in crease.

Unfortunately that has no bearing on the rule. I really don’t understand why they even paint the crease anymore.

I understand that but why did the Ref state that as the reason the goal was called off?

Because they’re NHL refs and don’t know the rules either.

Hard to make a proper call with your head up you ass.  Its dark in there.

How far out of the paint do you have to be before the goalie can’t skate up behind you, fall down, and get a goal waived off/a penalty?

Here is the official NHL Q&A on the rule

As I read it….as far as he wants. So Hasek should’ve drawn TONS of em.

So then, as a player, there is actually nothing you can do to avoid it.  It’s all on the goalie and what he decides to do.

It is a rule that needs some rewriting, though I doubt any of the other teams care since it only ever gets called on the red wings.

Kopecky was too close to do anything. Why do you people talk about him like he did something wrong to this team? Just curious.
