Winter Classic - Red Wings @ Blackhawks - 1/1
Posted December 31, 2008 - 09:54 AM
Camera batteries are charging, travel plans are made, tickets are sitting on my desk. I'm ready.
The teams get to skate on the Wrigley Field ice today, reports on that should be coming in shortly.
The big storyline of the 'Hawks trying to catch the Wings in the standings is pretty much gone but you can bet that Chicago will want some payback after how they went down in Detroit.
Lineup notes thus far: Conklin gets his third outdoor start for his third different team. Lidstrom and Samuelsson expected to play but nothing's confirmed.

Malik quotes them both.
It's only fitting that he gets a chance to play. It's too bad that it'll come at the cost of one of the forwards. Like MacLeod, I think Mikael Samuelsson could be a convenient scratch if he's still battling the flu. If not Sammy, do you reward veteran Kirk Maltby by letting him play or do you keep Tomas Kopecky in the lineup as (in my opinion) he's been the better grinder this year?

So, everyone keep their fingers crossed that he's the one out, if any

If the technology holds up, I'll try posting updates via Blackberry but I'll probably be doing so blind to anything else that's being posted so I won't be able to reply to questions or anything very well until I get back. We'll see how it all works out, I'm psyched however it goes down.

Game should start soon!
That penalty was stupid.
What a mother. 5 on 3 for the Hawks cause there were too many guys on the ice.
