GDT - Game # 65:  Red Wings at Avalanche (9:00)

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Jeff OKWingnut

Somebody gave the Red Wings a “shot” last night; almost a “team” Gordie Howe hat-trick!  Downey hooks up with Janssen for a twelve-round epic. Kopecky with a SH goal and 2 A (did you see him absolutely busting his arse to catch up with Datsyuk to score his shorty?).  Fil finally finds the net.  Ericsson picks up an assist in his 1st game of the season.  Oh, and Ozzie pitches his first shutout of the season.  A very nice rebound off the Wings unmentionable performance in NSH. But all was not Rosie with the Wings, Hossa was carted off the ice last night on a stretcher—reports during the game and afterward suggest all tests were negative.  A classy response by the Blues fans last night after Hossa was carted out.

So, you are thinking theWings will be gassed both physically and emotionally for the game in Denver tonight right?  You maybe right, DET is 5-5-1 with 0 days off.  Also, the Avs are just ghosts of the past, and currently occupy the basement of the Western Conference, losers of 5 straight.  The Avs last loss was to the NY Isles, current basement dwellers in the E.C.  After the Isles game, Granato said:  “We haven’t played well enough, we haven’t played smart enough, we haven’t had good starts to games, we make mistakes that this time of year we shouldn’t make, and when we do, they end up in our net.”

The Avs are hoping to prevent its first six-game slide since April, 1998.

The Red Wings pulled within 1 point of SJS last night after the Sharks loss to Dallas.  DET can take 1st in the W.C. with a win tonight.

Carolina/Edmonton/Los Angeles Deal

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

According to TSN, Carolina’s Justin Williams goes to LA Kings for Patrick O’Sullivan. Carolina then traded O’Sullivan to the Edmonton Oilers for Erik Cole.

There are picks involved which will be updated later.

Update 4:07pm ET: A note from Sportsnet trade alerts (by email) indicates that the Oilers also got Ales Kotalik in the deal.

Update 4:21pm ET: As pointed out in the comments, Kotalik is (was) with Buffalo, which creates some confusion. I was simply noting the update we received from Sportsnet.ca at 4:07pm ET which read exactly like this—

Carolina Hurricanes get:
  - LW Erik Cole
Edmonton Oilers get:
  - LW Patrick O’Sullivan
  - Ales Kotalik

As noted by Nate in the comments, Kotalik is apparently a feature of a separate transaction between the Oilers and Buffalo Sabres, exchanged for a 2nd round draft pick. [The Score]
