GDT - Game 37: Red Wings (18-13-5) at Coyotes (15-15-6) 10:00

DET are at the 3/4 pole, and with 12 games left in the season the 18-13-5 Wings are 7th in the WC.  The good news is DET are only 3 pts behind 4th place VAN, the bad news is that DET are only 3 pts ahead of 10th place NSH.

The schedule makers must really love the Wings.  In the final three weeks of the season, DET play 5 at home and 7 road contests, three back-to-backs (counting PHX/COL), and have a 4 game road trip.  Special, isn't it?

Hard times, bitches; hard times.

Somebody needs to kick the skates out from under Edmonton, they’re getting too close.  May as well start tonight.

Also need the BlackHawks to BitchSlap St Louise.  Those 2 losses plus a Detroyet win creates a little breathing room, for one night.

I hope the Wings crush the Yotes so bad they simply cease to exist.  Maybe that will keep them from becoming the Nordiques and sending the Wings back to the western conference again.
