It's a beautiful day outside but in the NHL's marketing brilliance we've got a game with huge playoff implications being played inside this afternoon between the Red Wings and the Nashville Predators. Since my thoughts on matinée hockey are well-known, on to the important stuff...

Jimmy Howard gets his 137th consecutive start, with today's game the last in his run. Chris Osgood will get the start tomorrow against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Danny Cleary will not return from his groin injury today, hoping to get back into the lineup tomorrow. That leaves Derek Meech filling in on the fourth line.

The Red Wings have two games in hand on Nashville but are only one point back, so they can move into fifth place with a win but technically don't need it to still have a chance at passing the Predators. That said, the LA Kings are only a point back of Detroit and they play Anaheim tonight, so a Wings win keeps them ahead of the Kings no matter what happens in Southern California.

In the battle for the eighth spot, Colorado lost to Calgary last night, putting the two teams into a tie with the Avalanche having a game in hand.

A little nasty weather never hurt anyone. The question is the weather outside worse than the storm that will be going on inside?

I was just getting ready to bitch about the power play and then the Wings go and pull that PPG out of their asses. Wow.

I thought the Wings came out strong for about one minute, then really got sloppy. The goal is all that really matters but they're tempting fate if they don't play better.

Well, f*ck.


yeah... sh*t happens. Jimmy should have froze the puck, with two players trying to shake of blocked shots, it was bound to happen.

Looks like the defense is today's scoring theme.

I don't even have anything to say about that third goal. When the Wings get it in their heads that they want to run around in circles, they're great at it.
