Later BJs… It’s time for some real competition.
Last night the Wings continued their winning streak and are still undefeated in the 2011-12 season.
1st Period Highlights:
- Johan Franzen scored 2 power play goals, both assisted by Valtteri Filppula — Mike Babcock has been working to improve the PP and this demonstrates good progress. Wings are 4 for 6 on the PP in the last 2 games
- Blue Jackets’ Brassard made it 2-1 with a few minutes left in the period
2nd Period Highlights:
- Datsyuk finally got it in after a few attempts by other players at the end of the period (Holmer and Zetterberg with the assists)
- Jonathan Ericsson kicked some BJ ass — it’s about fricken time. Can’t believe they let a fight go on for an entire minute…they break them up so quickly these days!
3rd Period Highlights:
- BJ’s Johnson (heheh) scored a PPG at 1:42
- Lidstrom with a PPG (assists went to Fil and Holmer)
- Fil earned his 4th point of the night (wowzer) — an empty netter with 1:27 left in the game. He had originally given the puck to Franzen so he could get a hat trick but ended up being the one to put it in. What a sweetheart.
Preview of tonight’s game vs. the undefeated Washington Capitals:
- Both the Wings and Caps are undefeated (5-0-0 and 6-0-0, respectively)
- It will be Captain Nick Lidstrom’s 1,500th game — he is the 14th player in NHL history to reach this milestone and only the 5th defenseman. Two of the four prior defensemen were Detroit Red Wings and the other two played for the opposing team, the Washington Capitals. Here is a clip of some Caps talking Lidstrom in the locker room: http://video.capitals.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=32&id=129602
- Brunnstrom will be joining the Red Wings lineup
- Ty Conklin will be in goal
Let’s Go Wings!!!
