Hockey's back and me and Pavel up there couldn't be more excited. Tonight, a team wearing the Wings sweaters, pretending to be the Wings, will be facing the Pittsburgh Penguins at 7 PM. Horray! Something to actually post about!
The game is on NHL Network. Here's your line-ups, which surprisingly include a few big names:
Jiri Hudler-Pavel Datsyuk-Danny Cleary
Fabian Brunnstrom-Cory Emmerton-Patrick Eaves
Drew Miller-Ryan Johnson-Jan Mursak
Tomas Tatar-Chris Conner-Tomas Holmstrom
Niklas Kronwall-Brad Stuart
Brendan Smith-Mike Commodore
Garnet Exelby-Logan Pyett
So no matter if this doesn't mean a thing, I'm excited, if only for the fact that one of the longest off-seasons ever is over.
Lets Go Red Wings! (Boy that felt good.)
I know it's pre season but Jimmy concerned me a little. I'm not taking it seriously but two weak goals on 20 shots is not the confidence builder fans wanted to see from him. But in all reality, who cares, it's a non-issue as long as he's ready by october.
Decent game, looks like Smith belongs, and I missed the first period because of work but Commie didnt disappoint me too bad.
Even though it's preseason and the game doesnt count, I always hate the Pens.
NHL Network at 7. Let's Go Red Wings!
