It’s An Original Six Meeting - Montreal vs. Detroit

Look here, game starts at 7:00pm ET just in case you did not know.

Howard vs. Price is the key tonight.  Jimmy has to be on top of his game.

Defense needs to tighten up and get the puck out of the defensive zone.

Babcock said today the opposition has the puck 66% of the time so all the Wings do is check.

So how about turning that checking into a forecheck and put some pressure on the Habs' defense?

Also noted from the last two games is Detroit seemed to forget about attacking the middle offensive zone.  Do it and success will follow.

Win, score one more goal and get ready for the 12:30pm start on Saturday against Boston at the Joe.game in Toronto on Saturday night. Duh!

Let's make it a very lively blog, bitches.

THe Wings play Toronto on Saturday at the ACC? Don’t they?

Anyhow, tonight’s game will require fewer turnovers in their own zone…that is the major reason why they are not possessing the puck more frequently.  The puck being stolen from you is one thing, but…..when you make it easy by handing it freely to your opponent, it creates enormous pressure on your whole defensive structure.

Therefore, skate hard, be smart for a change, and force the opposition in their own end. Vow to spend most of your time in their zone…and just do it.

Howard makes $5.2 million a year. He should stop uncovered shots from pointblank.

I like Quincey’s moxie on that play.  He should have had a camera, he could have taken a really nice picture.

Pointblank, no pressure / coverage by D, puck is on edge, and it magically ends up top shelf.

Are you serious?

also screened by 2 players (and maybe a bit by Q as well) just prior to the shot.

Coverage by the D? Nobody was within 5 feet of the shooter.
Q had his head up his ass.
Yes it was a shot that could have been saved but still that goal is not all on the goalie.
