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****!

Bert has hands growing out of his head.  Demonic.

You know…I really feel bad for MacDonald.  He had a hell of a game going.

I think somebody needs to tell the Oilers that this is the NHL, not the world juniors. Act like you’ve scored a goal before…

We get at least a point out of a game we had no right to be in so….

Posted by calquake on 02/05/12 at 12:48 AM ET

Twenty minutes ago i would have agreed with that.  But blowing a lead in the final minute.  I hate their inability to hold leads more than i hate their crappy PP.

When the puck isn’t visible, shouldn’t there be a whistle?

I don’t recall a game when the puck slid off Datsyuk’s stick as much as it did tonight.
