So Far 4 In 2, Why Not 6 in 3?

Yes, the Wings have won their first two games of their western Canada road tour and play the final game tonight in Edmonton before taking a detour through Phoenix on Monday before returning to Detroit for a Wednesday game against these same Oilers.

Before this goes an futher, Paul here, assuming IwoCPO is still without web access. (If he does appear before the puck drops, well, you know what to do.)

You know the Oilers plan to pepper Conklin with shots so the first ten minutes of he game are important for the Wings to stick to their game plan.

Tight defense, take advantage of mistakes by the Oilers and head to Phoenix with a win, any way they can.

6 in 3 could turn in to 8 in 4, so let’s make sure the Wings have that chance.

It’s a Live Blog bit****!

You woulda thought when they traded Gretzky away that some of that 15 million would’ve gone on a camera or something, as it is, why do the cameras at Rexall all look like they record straight to betamax?

Also, thanks for that Oilers.

Nice of Conklin to give that one back. 

Honestly, leave him in Edmonton and let him find his own way to wherever he needs to go.
