Detroit will attempting to tie the NHL record of 20 consecutive home wins when the

Dallas Stars

The complete shootout.

Tomas Holmstrom joined the NHL Tonight crew after the Wings victory tonight.


NHL Tonight with their analysis of the Wings win.



I will add game highlights as soon as they become available.

Well they are not yet available, NHL.com must be having some issues, so check this link later and hopefully they will be up.  I need my beauty sleep.

  Yeah but I don’t think Analheim deserved it either.

1.83 goals against, .919 save percentage.

Paging Mr Conklin, please have a bag packed and ready for the SECOND Mr Howard is ready to play.

From the LB, sounds like it.  Two points and some more real estate.

Well, hold the phone on a back up. J-Mac looks like he can handle the load until JIMMAH~! gets back. I feel just about as at ease with J-Mac between the pipes as I do JIMMAH~!  I hope when Howard returns it’s the Conk who rides the highway back to GR and J-Mac stays up, because IMO, it’s pretty clear who should be backing up JIMMAH~! when he returns, and his name doesn’t rhyme with “Tie”. Also, I know it’s a longshot, but damn I’d love to see Selanne in a Wings Jersey. Might be the cure to our inept PP, since he’ll actually shoot the fuching puck when he gets it in the high slot.

Oh well, 19 consecutive wins at the JLA, despite the special teams’struggles, it’s a good time to be a Red Wings fan. LGRW (exclamation point)

It was a win - I don’t care how ugly.  And yes, JoeyMac appears to be the real deal.  So happy for him because he looked good last year when he helped out and he stayed with the organization just hoping for this chance.  I don’t think Holland needs to look for another goaltender, unless…  Should something happen to Jimmah down the road, he might want someone with playoff experience… 

Paul thanks for pinch hitting!

Im still surprised we went after Conks given some of the quality games Joey Mac played last year.  I like McDonalds style even though he hasnt won tons of games at NHL level. Hes aggressive and his quickness has improved from a couple years ago. He would be the more than capable back up at this point. I saw him play 3 excellent games for Grand Rapids also this season.

I’m with Ms Red Winger and karlander. Personally, I was shocked that they brought in Cocklin (sic) as Jimmy’s backup this year. Joey had a 2.58 GAA and a .917 SV% in 15 games with the Wings last year. Cocklin, on the othr hand,  had a 3.22 GAA and a .881 SV% in 25 games with the Blues. That wasn’t one of Tick Tock’s better moves.

Full credit to JMac for swallowing his pride and accepting the assignment to G.R. Now he’s earned the right to stay once Jimmy returns. I just hope the Griffins can withstand the piss-poor positioning and sloppy play they’ll see when Cocklin is their goalie during their run to the playoffs.

Check http://www.vipbox.tv/sports/ice-hockey.html tomorrow, MS. I’ve had good luck finding links to games there. Just be forwarned that the quality isn’t always the best.

For those who feel completely inadequate with the impotent NHL.com game highlights, youtube user, awood40, put up a 16 minute highlights video of last night’s game.  As I don’t have DVR, he’s doing a fantastic job of posting extended highlights for those of us who missed the game entirely.
