Wings slept through the first period but then got going and scored the next 4. Howard was pretty solid. Hopefully they can get Zetterberg back soon.

Red Wings have won 7/8 of their last series when winning game one.

Pre-lockout hockey all over the NHL last night, except maybe in Detroit. More to come, with offensive stars injured all over the league right now.

Nice to see the crowd at the Joe back into it after taking a few years off.

I saw Babcock bitching about this in the presser. Basically said just let us know which way you're gonna call it and we'll adapt accordingly but there needs to be consistency.

Compared to the officiating in the Anaheim-Nashville game, the Detroit-Phoenix game wasn't too bad. The Ducks-Preds game was outright pathetic.

Yeah Packy, the Québécois are a strange breed. I suspect Boston will pound them. Not sure I agree with all the Wings doom and gloom, team is loaded with playoff veterans and it's a new season.

There are always surprises, Boston always seem shaky in the playoffs. I wouldn't be shocked if they choke again. I haven't seen any doom and gloom anywhere (besides Hannibal and Liney), but one or two losses and you know people will panic.

Sure Montreal won 4 of 6 this season but Boston's last 2 wins looked particularly convincing, more team depth.

Boston has a mental block with the Habs. Lose first game.

Seven games so far. Four shutouts. In only one game so far has the losing team scored two goals. Games are averaging about 3 and a half goals per game.

yayyyy soccer on ice is back! Long live the Neutral zone trap and referees who "let them play"! Goals are so boring!

Kings are pretty banged up, Sharks should advance, Packy is that Jimmy Rutherford's mask?

LA will win maybe one game at the most. They can't win without Kopitar and Williams.

I didn't know that.

LA still has no chance without Kopitar.

Agreed, Anze is a must in the lineup, however Drew Doughty at 22 years of age, may be the best defensemen in the league, his Olympic play was spectacular.
