I Have No Idea What Will Happen In The Leafs/Wngs Game Tonight

But I do know there will be a large contingent of Toronto fans at the game tonight.

I do know Dion Phaneuf will be caught out of position a few times and the Wings need to take advantage of that.  I also now he will try to run on of younger players, just to welcome them to the NHL.

I also know the #1 line of the Wings, Legwand, Franzen and Alfreddsson have to start scoring.

I cannot confirm on one of the walls in the Wings' dressing room a picture hangs of Jeff Blashill, just for inspiration.

I can also look into the not too distant future, someone will leave a comment, basically stating B. Smith looks good at forward, also, someone else will write no he doesn't.

On Jimmy Howard, the only thing I know is he needs to stop the puck, like at a .940 percentage.

The Leafs have shown a tendency to have serious lapses during games, the Wings need to jump on those opportunities.

End of story, score one more than Ontario's team.

It's a live blog bitches and I have a feeling it will be a lively one too.

Wings looked pretty good in the O zone, and downright dreadful in the D zone. Mickey is right, they’ve already gone to that well too much tonight; it will begin to burn them soon if they don’t figure out how the hell to move that puck out of their own zone with some level of effectiveness.

I also thought the Leafs looked a bit flat.

So, the Wings, even though up one goal, need to have a better second period, or this game changes real quick.

I’m here, 19.  Soz, I’m late.

Thanks for the LB, Boss.

I see a 1-nil Wings lead at the start of the second.  Keep it up, boys.

They are. And correct me if I’m wrong, but that usually doesn’t work out too well for us,if memory serves.

From the first two minutes I saw of him here in the second, he was pretty tenacious.  Drew a boarding call on Gleason.
