It's Monday....

Happy Monday! Long weekend without any Wings games so I am certainly glad they are playing tonight and tomorrow. At least yesterday I was able to watch the Griffins game on the NHL Network, while I was trying to shake the rest of my weekend off. (Apparently when you're 24 you are not able to do the same things you were when you were 21...) Nice to see the Griffins come back in the third scoring 2 goals within a minute in and a half to win 3-2!

Tonight the Wings of course play Calgary! Hopefully they can redeem themselves after Calgary's come from behind overtime victory on March 13th. Since that disappointment the Wings have won 4 in a row and have really tightened things up. (If you choose to ignore the third period against the Thrashers)

As always, "the skid mark on the underpants of society," (name that movie) will be sure to bring their physical game. But as long as the Wings actually capitalize on the stupid penalties the Flames will certainly take, they should be fine.

Tonight Ozzie gets his 5th start, and according to Matt at On the Wings ConkBlock will start tomorrow. Crossing my fingers Osgood will continue to turn the corner and the last third period of defensive Russian Roulette was a fluke. Looking for a strong strong game today which will put the Wings 2 points out of clinching the Central Division. Has this not been the LONGEST March!!

Since Homer will more than likely not play, the lines should stay the same as they were in Atlanta.



I have really been enjoying watching Lebda and Ericsson play together. They were both a plus one in Altanta and made some key plays. I think they complement each other well, and while Lebda's game has been improving all season, he is getting better and better being paired with Ericsson.

I have heard that Ericsson is apparently pretty big, and his long reach and physical style meshes well with Lebda's speed and good puck movement.

And since it's Monday and we all need a laugh, please sit back, and enjoy, the grace, elegance, and overall manly toughness that is Dion Phaneuf...

Despite seeing that what, 500 times, I still enjoy it. Especially after what he did to our little Happy Hudler...Nobody puts baby in the corner...
