Dec. 3 :: Friday Night Rehabilitation!


WHAT’S ALL THIS THEN?
The Red Wings kick off December with the first of back-to-back games against California-based clubs. Tonight, it’s the Los Angeles Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Angels. 10pm Eastern.

WHAT’S THE BIG IDEA?
Detroit’s on a roll, going 8-1-1 in their last ten, and show no signs of slowing down. The first meeting between these two teams (the Wings season opener on October 8th) was a barn-burner. We should all hope for a similar showing. Minus Pavel Datsyuk fighting.

NOW WHERE WERE WE?
The Wings were 4-0 winners in Game #1, with goals scored by Dan Cleary, Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen, and Mike Modano. Jimmy Howard claimed the goose egg and there were fights galore.

OH, HI AGAIN
Todd Diamond Client #1 (of, presumably, 1) Andreas Lilja is a Duck. He’s averaging just over 16 minutes through 17 games, has yet to score a goal but has two assists, and is a -2 coming into tonight’s tussle.

MEMBA ME?!
The Red Wings have three former Ducks on their playing roster: Todd Bertuzzi, Drew Miller, and Ruslan Salei. In fact, Salei played under current Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock and assistant coach Paul MacLean when they were the bench bosses in Anaheim.

BEST NAME NOMINEE
You know the rules: when there isn’t an obvious winner, you turn to the Italian. Nick Bonnino edges out Kyle Palmieri for the right to be the non-cliched “Cam Fowler is a Duck ROFL” winner for this round.

THEIR LAST GAMES
:: Detroit took San Jose out behind the wood shed on Tuesday.
:: Anaheim was a 5-3 winner over Florida on Wednesday.

THE FIVE HOLE
1. Joey MacDonald was sent back down to Grand Rapids and Chris Osgood returns to where he belongs: at the end of the bench charting faceoffs.
2. All jokes aside… Jimmy Howard will get a break tomorrow, as Chris Osgood is set to return. But tonight, it’s Tiberius’ crease, as he starts his 14th game in a row. He’s played very well this season but, as Saler said, is prone to getting bored and letting in a squeaker.
3. Like we touched on in the latest episode of TP:60 (before talking about which Disney princesses we’d like to get our hands on), the defense is still prone to dumbass turnovers and that’s something I’m sure the coaching staff is trying to tighten up. While the Ducks aren’t as ferocious as they have been in recent history, there’s still a lot of fire power in the forward ranks and — like the Sharks — they absolutely will convert if the Wings let their guard down.
4. Dan Cleary has been a man possessed for a few weeks, and Henrik Zetterberg had a monster game on Tuesday. Will they be the offensive catalysts moving forward — starting with tonight’s game? Both guys are more than capable of continuing their streaks.
5. Don’t forget to continue voting for #OperationCurlyFries in Fox Sport Detroit/Arby’s Vote to Restore Justice (our name).

WHAT WE LEARNED AGAINST THE SHARKS
Henrik Zetterberg is thinking curly fries… and you are, too.

WUT?

  2. your NOW WHERE WERE WE? didn’t mention Detroit’s Oct. 23rd 5-4 victorty over the Dicks, courtesy of Pav’s sa-weet 11.4-seconds-left-man-I-don’t-want-to-go-into-OT goal. Here’s hoping tonight’s scoreboard looks a little more like game 1.
