Tonight the Wings face off against the Sharks in another late start, and we've all had a good look at how poorly the team has adapted to the different time zones. They have struggled all season on the road, so this is not going to get easier. Larkin is listed as day to day so he's out tonight, and, T-Bert is supposed to play so the Wings have that as a plus. Another plus is that the Wings did battle back the other night to take the game all the way to the skills competition, and, did get a point. So, not all bad.
The big news today is the hiring of Nicklas Lidstrom as Red Wings vice president of hockey operations. That is a big deal, and, another part of the "Yzerplan" falling into place. There will be plenty of time to talk all about this exciting new development tonight.
I would venture to say that it's been a great day for the Detroit Red Wings, as well as their loyal fans. We're on our way....
