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****!

The one thing that they didn’t want to happen… Gagner scores in the first three minutes.  Fuch.

Poor Murph sounds like he has taken too many hits. Or he really likes the Flask. I’m hoping it is the Flask.

At least this long delay slows any momentum they might have had after scoring.

Anyone else catch Jimmah’s status duroing pregame? Apparently his index finger is broken, not his pinky as reported in the press.

Czeching in on a lovely Saturday evening here on the left coast. Since 71 & Yoop thanks for the link.

Did they score or did we spot them a goal before the game??

Interesting that the Oilers are taking the Penguins plan back to relevance AKA sucking alot and getting high draft picks.

Stuey with a typically lazy pass out of the d-zone leads to another greasy goal for the opposition. Fuch.

Oilers are scoring 4 minimum tonight.  Conklin will be traded by the end of this month or sent down to the AHL.  Holland’s already on the phone.
