The Grand Rapids Griffins move in to Vancouver tonight. Jimmy Howard gets the start in goal and the blueline will feature Derek Meech, Kyle Quincey, Jonathan Ericsson and Garrett Stafford. Yes, that means that Chris Chelios is out.

Who in the world is Garrett Stafford? I haven't even heard of him! D: This is already looking bad. I still have yet to watch last night's third period.

I like it ... not that I'm happy about the Red Wings injuries, but I think it is good for fans to see what the prospects look like in action.

For these young players, it must be E-X-C-I-T-I-N-G.

Cheli needs a rest anyway.

I hope he recovers fully and soon, though :suspect:

I would have liked to see Kindl. The Wings think he can be a top-two defenseman. But if he's not ready now, no sense in calling him up.

Hartigan is in for Drake tonight. The actual Griffins (as opposed to the ones playing as Red Wings) beat the Canucks' farm team today.

With Ken Daniels by himself at the end of pregame, catmandu said "He is by himself 'cause Murphy's playing?"

Drake is in, Hartigan must have just taken the warm-up.

Meech hurt. Murphy just left the booth to go put his gear on.

Edit: Meech returns. Larry breathes a sigh of relief.

Wings are due for a lucky bounce, after the deflection off of Ericsson just now and the one yesterday.

Huge save by Howard!

Meech with an important goal for the first of his career.

Wings too cute on the five-on-three. Ugh.

f*cking weak roughing call, Vancouver power play goal. How important is it to have blown that five-on-three now?

Kesler just made it 4-1. I'm exhausted and going to bed.

The Canucks could score 10 more goals in the final minutes here and I won't feel bad about the Wings' effort tonight except on the power play. It feels like the forwards spent too much time trying to make up for the absent defense.

The good news is that it won't be a problem forever. Eventually the team will be healthy and the power play looks a lot different with Nicklas Lidstrom and Brian Rafalski than it does with Kyle Quincey and Garrett Stafford.

Still no worries from me. I can't wait until deadline day.
