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.

If the Wings were serious about making the playoffs they’d be going with Mrazek and half the Griffins’ D-corps by now.

What?  Franzen’s playing this game?

If Howard makes one of these saves we have a different game. He is not clutch. How much more run support do you need? Yet here we are playing from behind still. Howard does not handle redirected pucks well.

Loafing or not, Franzen has some of the best hands in the game.

And great sequence / pressure by the Wings. Keep it up !!!

Yeah, that’s kind of the point of redirecting pucks ...

Aboot 70% if the Wings are on the PP and Howard is in net.

C-3PO: Sir, the possibility of successfully scoring a short-handed goal is approximately 3,720 to 1

Let so much worse than that go all period, why the call now?

I’m sure kronwall did not mean to redirect it. You can call it bad luck, and sure it’s unfortunate, but goalies making $5 million dollars a year need to find a way to make one of those saves, and if not any of the redirected pucks how about point blank shots? No reason to miss that.

Timely penalty by smith. Way to go.

I hope Helm Solo follows that with a line of his own.

Can blame it on the defense all you want, but Howard is sitting at 30th in save % at the moment and 29th in GAA.

He IS an average goalie, maybe slightly above average, but you can’t blame his numbers purely on him. Our D is BAD.
