Dec. 19 :: Remember when you were in the Beatles? That was awesome

Saturday was the 13th anniversary of Chris Farley's death. Despite a middle name of "Crosby," we all hope he continues to rest in peace.

WHAT’S ALL THIS THEN?
Wings and Stars. Sunday matinee. 5pm Eastern, at the Joe.

WHAT’S THE BIG IDEA?
Chris Osgood will get the chance to earn his 400th career victory on home ice. Here’s hoping the Wings win big, he gets it, and we can (finally) move on from this storyline.

NOW WHERE WERE WE?
This is the second matchup of the season for these two teams. The first was October 14th. It wasn’t pretty. The Loss Candy comments were fun, though. The 4-1 loss was the first regulation loss of the season.

OH, HI AGAIN / MEMBA ME?! / BEST NAME NOMINEE
Being that this is the second game of the season between these two teams, we’ve done this dance before. Mike Modano, who won’t be playing, is a former Star. Karlis Strastins is a runaway in the BNN.

THEIR LAST GAMES
:: Detroit didn’t bother showing up in Chicago for Chris Chelios Night, losing 4-1 to the Hawks on Friday.
:: Dallas defeated Columbus, 2-1, last night.

THE FIVE HOLE
1. Friday was a classic Wings off-night, where they didn’t really show a lot of effort, and lost the game in the opening minutes. The good news is that they rarely play like that two nights in a row, so here’s hoping for more gusto from the jump.
2. Likewise, the team will want to play hard for Chris Osgood, who is on the verge of accomplishing something only nine other goaltenders have ever accomplished. It’s no secret that I’m not a big Osgood fan, but he seems like a hell of a guy, a great teammate, and he’s earned the right to at least be discussed about Hall of Fame numbers. Whichever side of that debate you stand on, tonight should be his night.
3. Something I brought up on Twitter Friday: Patrick Eaves appears to have been removed from the healthy scratch rotation which now includes Kris Draper, Drew Miller, and Jiri Hudler. Of course that could change, but since Eaves’ last scratch (December 4th), the healthy players in the press box have gone as follows: Draper, Miller, Draper, Hudler, Draper, Miller, Draper. If Eaves has, in fact, played himself into a permanent spot in the lineup, he thanked Mike Babcock by scoring the lone goal on Friday.
4. If you notice the lineup above, Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg have been split in an effort to jumpstart the offense. Will today’s game be one of those “adjustment” games, or will the players respond to the change by showing some effort to right the ship?
5. Also worth noting is that Valtteri Filppula has been dropped to the third line, with Dan Cleary bouncing up a line. The Abdelkader-Flip-Eaves line should be something to watch…

WHAT WE LEARNED AGAINST THE HAWKS
Dumbass fans are rewarded for booing former heroes.

STAR WE COVET (JJ Special)
I’m CERTAIN I’ll get a lot of shit over this, but I love how Brendan Morrow plays. Sure, he’s a dick, but he’s an effective dick.

WUT?
