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.

After reading the first two pages of the LB, Boss, I think we have a lot more energy on the LB than the Wings do on the ice.

I’m kind of relieved it’s 2-0, because with what I saw during that 1st period Montreal could easily be up 4 or 5.
