Red Wings @ Oilers - 3/19
Posted March 19, 2010 - 06:09 PM
The Wings ended Monday night three points up on the Calgary Flames in the standings and one point behind the Nashville Predators. With both of those teams having played since then, Detroit remains in eighth place but now sit only one point up on Calgary and five back of Nashville.
The NHL-worst Oilers give the Wings a chance to earn back some of the points that the Flames and Predators have gained on them but, like Detroit, their position in the standings is less indicative of how they've played and more a sign of the injuries they've fought through.
The Oilers will be starting winless Devan Dubnyk in goal. Despite suggestions that Chris Osgood would start for Detroit, Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes again. Jonathan Ericsson rotates in on the Detroit blue line, replacing Brett Lebda.

I knew we were screwed.

Pull Howard. This team needs to wake up and he shouldn't have started tonight anyway.
Agreed... Put Ozzie in there and send the wake up call!

I know I say it every time but Howard was down too early on the first shootout attempt. The second I have no idea what he was doing. The third was a great save but you can't stop one of three shots and expect to give your team a chance.
That said, how does only one person score on a winless rookie goalie? And that one person is Jason Williams? Datsyuk beat Dubnyk but hit the post, but it doesn't count for any more than Fil's wasted shot.
