So Far 4 In 2, Why Not 6 in 3?

Yes, the Wings have won their first two games of their western Canada road tour and play the final game tonight in Edmonton before taking a detour through Phoenix on Monday before returning to Detroit for a Wednesday game against these same Oilers.

Before this goes an futher, Paul here, assuming IwoCPO is still without web access. (If he does appear before the puck drops, well, you know what to do.)

You know the Oilers plan to pepper Conklin with shots so the first ten minutes of he game are important for the Wings to stick to their game plan.

Tight defense, take advantage of mistakes by the Oilers and head to Phoenix with a win, any way they can.

6 in 3 could turn in to 8 in 4, so let’s make sure the Wings have that chance.

It’s a Live Blog bit****!

How does the ref see the high stick on the puck but not see it whack Franzen in the face?

Oilers are scoring 4 minimum tonight.  Conklin will be traded by the end of this month or sent down to the AHL.  Holland’s already on the phone.

from your lips, to tick tocks ear.

Well, I’m glad to see that the boys have brought their game up to compensate for the loss of their MVP.

Looks like a replay of the Islanders and Canadiens.  If they stay true to form it means they’re pretty much going to lie down, roll over on their backs and give it up big time. 

I’d love for them to prove me wrong about that, but that’s actually what I expect at this point.

Ok, Potter needs to get 2-5-10 while Kronwall gets 0.  Stop this nonsense after clean hits right now.

Well, they adequately showed they can move the puck around the perimeter of 3 defenders.  Great.
