We've got a virtual must-win for both teams tonight. Detroit needs the win or they go back home having blown a two-game lead. Nashville needs it or they're a loss from elimination.

There have already been calls for Hasek's head and if he doesn't shine tonight, those will only get louder. I'm trying not to fault him for Game Three.

I just checked what time it starts. 9pm ET. That's not good. 2AM for me. I will make it to the end. Hopefully.

Anyway, I don't think it's fair to blame Hasek on his own for what happened. Going on the defensive too early is what cost them, like what others have been saying. It's a new game and it's time to move on. But if they blow another two goal lead, I may actually explode.

No lineup changes for the Predators, meaning that Legwand stays in. Detroit is swapping out Andreas Lilja and replacing him with Brett Lebda.

Darren Helm will take the pregame skate, ready to go if an unspecified Wing is unable due to injury. Figure it would be Abdelkader if the Wings were looking for grit, so this is probably a skill guy. Samuelsson or Draper.

My Internet's been flaky across the last couple days, but I'll try to be around for this thread throughout the game.

And after Hasek's performance in game 3, the pundits are correct in asking for his head. I say the first sign of him being shakey tonight, pull-em. He has to make the stops in play-off hockey. Game 3 was almost inexcusable.

Is Lilja out tonight and Lebda in???

Helm is out. Whoever was feeling hurt is good enough to go tonight.

Playing "Battle of the Heroes" from Revenge of the Sith at the Sommet Center. I'm old-fashioned, but that's the kind of stuff you play in a pregame show, not cheesy nu-metal.

askdfjal;sdjf;lasj; AHHHHH! I HATEHATEHATE that 'April in the D' commercial. Yeah, it wouldn't be bad except for the fact they play it EVERY TWO MINUTES >:|

They could at least make it more hockey-esque. Stanley in the D? :cursing: Oh yeah, has a nice ring.

I hope Lebda can do something tonight :cursing: I am excited. It's eight past nine, and I am anxious for the face-off.

Anyone else think the sign they showed that the kids made for Valtteri looked like a chicken with a hockey stick? XD Hahahaha, it was cute :o

Alright, f*ck it. Still early.

The problem with putting Osgood in is that you'll never be able to go back to Hasek for the rest of the playoffs 'cause he's a headcase.

I think those aren't fans with whistles, that's just what it sounds like when you breathe through that big of a gap in your teeth.
