The Red Wings look to snap their skid in Washington this afternoon, an early game starting at 12:30.

Ty Conklin gets the start for Detroit, who will be without Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holmstrom. Ville Leino makes his NHL debut and Justin Abdelkader makes his first appearance of the season. Derek Meech will play up front if game-time-decision Jiri Hudler can't go.

Let me just get this out of the way... I hate afternoon games. They're not as bad on a day like today where it's frikkin' cold outside but I use my weekend afternoons to get stuff done, I hate taking the middle of the day for hockey, hockey is a night game.

Abs and Leino both get early shifts. Wings haven't screwed anything up yet but they go on the PK now.

Good early kill. Caps with a ton of pressure. They play like the Wings, I'd like watching them if they weren't playing Detroit.

Caps strike right back with a pinball shot. Damnit.

That's why you shoot the puck. Wings aren't doing that enough lately.

Ovechkin buts the Caps ahead, less than 7 minutes left.

Called it. Hit the f*cking post on a 6-on-3. That's the hockey gods saying "f*ck you" right there.

Wings played pretty good up until...well. I don't know. When the Caps scored those two third period goals that was crap. But otherwise a good game.

Leino's goal was kickass :)

Ovechkin is great, too!

That sums it up really well. The Wings weren't playing great but were right in it and then bam, they're down two goals and it's over.
