Stu Barnes could return to the lineup for the Stars but it looks like that would be the only roster change for either team for Game Two.

The way the Stars have been complaining to the media about goalie interference on Detroit's third goal in Game One, you can probably expect that to be watched a bit more closely this time around. The Stars feel they're "owed" one.

Of course, I hope the Wings did just as much lobbying, 'cause as loud as the Stars have been they still got away with a bit. Marty Turco's blatant elbow to the head of Darren Helm way outside the crease early in the third period comes to mind. Of course, the Versus guys barely mentioned it (the crowd was going nuts).

Turco still hasn't proven anyone who says he can't win in Detroit wrong. I won't say he can't, just that he hasn't.

Wings win this one, it could be a quick series.

Thread note: My laptop is in the shop so I'll be checking in at intermissions. Going old-school and taking game notes with pencil and paper.

Agreed, Turco doesn't really seem interested in proving he can win at the Joe. As far as the complaining goes, you can expect at least one or two goal tender interference call on Homer.

According to Hockey this morning on XM the league wants to prove that the refs can get it right. Although it always seems to come at the Wings expense, I have a feeling that I am going be p*ssed at the refs.

I also concur that this could be a short series. All I want to know is how we are going to counter the Pens! That is a fast moving team!

Side Note: Happy late 43rd birthday to Stevie Y!

Expected Stars lineup change: Matt Niskanen in on the blueline for Mark Fistric. Stu Barnes won't be ready to go.

I missed the pregame out with in-laws. Why is Franzen out?

Beautiful shot by Helmer.

Who's surprised that the refs can see phantom hand-passes to negate Detroit goals but not any of the cross-checking Dallas does?

Ott turns around and gives Osgood a shot. No call. Yet it's Dallas bitching about goalie interference.

Do the Versus guys know Detroit is playing? Every stoppage it's about what Dallas is doing.

And, yeah, huge goal by Zetterberg. Gotta keep Turco under pressure, he'll keep cracking.

Thinking about it more, that Datsyuk goal that was blown dead would have been on highlights everywhere. Way to go ref. Good thing the NHL doesn't need highlights.

I will retract my blame when someone shows me a clear view that it was a hand-pass.
