Mystery in Detroit…Wings Recall MacDonald

Updated 1229 PST: Teddy Kulfan says, “Jimmy Howard came down with back spasms after this morning’s practice.”

Updated 1221 PST: No official word that specifically says Howard is hurt, but it’s looking that way.  Wings official site (but not the Diggers…STRONG WORK boys/girls) saying Osgood in net tonite.

Whoa….WTF?

@DetroitRedWings  The Red Wings have recalled goaltender Joey MacDonald from Grand Rapids.

Then…

@DetroitRedWings   To make room for MacDonald, the Wings have placed Kris Draper on long-term injured reserve and Brian Rafalski on short-term injured reserve.

More to follow, I’m sure. MacDonald, though?  Interesting.

Where’s Malik when you really need him?

Did Jimmah or Ozzie get hurt in practice yesterday or in the morning warm-up today?

Are they trying to showcase Joey for trade bait?

WTF

I’m not on twitter, so correct me if I’m wrong, but did someone spoof the Red Wings twitter account? When I went to the Red Wings twitter page, the two tweets in question are no where to be found.

Custance tweet,

Jimmy Howard out with back spasms. Told it’s not too serious, Red Wings just being cautious.

Back spasms? Seems like there has to be more to the injury than that given the rosters moves that were necessary to call up Joey.

Nah, the Wings just have no cap space and they needed a backup.

That is not good news… why do the Hockey Gods hate us so?  Anyways, to lighten the mood a bit, here is a secret meeting between Babs and Hudler.

I hope Ozzie makes the most of his opportunity. No better way to tie Uncle Mike’s hands than by performing on the ice.

Upon hearing this my balls jumped up into my throat, but then after seeing that it’s not serious they have reverted back to their rightful place in Osrt’s purse.

Well here’s hoping this is a temporary precaution so that they don’t have to put in a not 100% Super Jimmah if something happens to Ozzie.

Though, with McDonald… I think I’d rather just have them skate 6 with an empty net.

My prediction of a 5-2 loss earlier today is looking more likely. I’ve had a bad feeling about this one all week. It’s a trap game.

Let me fire up the crystal ball…

Wings outshoot Phoenix something like 45-13. Ilya Bryzgalov plays out of his mind and Osgood lets in a bad goal on his first or second shot of the game. Everyone excuses his effort tomorrow because “he didn’t really have a chance on the other 4.”

Franzen is attacked by a knife-wielding maniac, needs a blood transfusion, and contracts Swedish Gorilla AIDS.

These are the kind of games the Wings take for granted as an easy win.

It’s going to be a walk in the park in downtown Detroit, at night, if the guys aren’t razor sharp. They better be fuching ready.

Ozzie come close to a shutout and Wings win 3-1. The only goal coming when Uncle Mike has a brain freeze and actually puts the third line on the ice.

I think you’re missing the point.  MacDonald is called up to play on the 3rd line.
