Red Wings @ Sharks, pregame notes

Red Wings at HP tonight.  Datsyuk in, Lidstrom still out. Franzen

maybe but he

didn’t skate this morning.  The Red Wings are on a losing streak, some say it a sign of things to come for post-Lidstrom hockey in Detroit.  Lidstrom may not be playing tonight but the Red Wings are not “post-Lidstrom” yet.  Besides, Datsyuk is back.  I am overwrought with concern for his health, quite appalled that they would let him play so soon after his surgery.  He should by no means be playing yet, he should wait until Monday.

Things could be worse, but now the Sharks need to be better

Sharks fans thought we had it bad when the Sharks embarrassed themselves and us by losing 3-0 to the Coyotes. That was bad, but it could have been worse. Coyotes do stuff like that all the time, sneak up on you and steal your chickens (or your cats, or your toy dogs) when you’re not looking. Imagine being a Wings fan and watching the Blues… oh.

Ok, well, what about Stars fans, however many there are? They have to be pretty angry about a 6-0 loss to the Panthers. Sure, the Panthers are on a streak of road wins but still, it’s the Panthers, and Dallas has forgotten they were doing amazingly well.  They’ve started dropping games like pennies in a wishing well. So it could be worse.
