The Red Wings' West Coast road trip continues tonight in San Jose.

The Sharks lead the Western Conference at 8-2-0, closely followed by Detroit at 7-1-2. San Jose is also perfect at home.

Backup goalie Ty Conklin gets the start for Detroit with Chris Osgood having gone last night in Anaheim. Conklin is 3-0 this season.

Figure I'll get this out of the way now, I've got a bad feeling about tonight. Also expecting it to be a quiet night around here.

I'm a little surprised that the Wings didn't opt to go with Meech instead of Lebda on the blueline tonight. A little extra energy.

Conklin comes up huge on Thornton. Wings haven't had a chance like that yet.

That was one hell of a glove save by Conklin.

I think the Wings will be happy with the result of that period. They played pretty poorly but are still tied 0-0.

And I like that it was a relatively fast period, between the West Coast games all week, my early-morning project launch on Tuesday and playing goal in tonight's soccer game, I'm absolutely exhausted. Need a short game, not another OT game.

It was a quick wrister from the right circle. Seemingly-innocent but real fast.

Saw that coming as soon as Thornton went behind the net.

Rafalski blew his defensive coverage.

Thanks. But I saw this one, unfortunately. And it's all tied up.

Seriously? How the f*ck did that get in? And you're telling me the ref never lost sight of it?

Again, left wide open in the front of the net. The defense looks like my soccer team's defense and we lost 17-3 tonight.

Oh for f*ck's sake. Just left him in front of the net.

I didn't expect them to survive that penalty kill. But somehow the did.

And actually looked kind of good on it. Maybe it's a start but I'm thinking that unless they score one more before the end of the period I'm going to bed and skipping the third. We'll see.

I guess I'll stick around a little longer. Not ready to quit just yet.

I think I'll watch the first five minutes. If the wings score, I carry on watching. If the sharks score I'll go to bed, and obviously if there's no change after five minutes I'll go to bed.
