The Red Wings face a must-win in their first home game of the series tonight against the Sharks. A loss puts them a game from elimination and needing to win four in a row.

Patrick Eaves is out again for Detroit. I'll let Mike Babcock explain the impact of that...

Patrick Eaves for us is a forechecking, banging, penalty-killer. Thats' where the adjustment is. When you take 10 penalties in a game you can use a penalty-killer. Our plan tonight is to not take any penalties, so we don't have to worry about it as much.


And that's all I'm saying about penalties before the game.

Detroit also needs to be better in the faceoff circle. It hasn't hampered much of their offense but winning some defensive-zone faceoffs in the first two games could have prevented several goals.

Tonight is the Red Wings' fourth home game of the playoffs but the first at their usual home start time of 7:30 PM.

Told ya, but what the hell does "Distinct kicking motion" have to do with anything now that "propel" is the key word?

Here's why that goal should have stood, even though I knew it wouldn't. "Propelling" the puck into the net implies applying more force to the puck to make it go in. If anything, the puck slowed down after hitting Zetterberg's skate. Less force. Not propelled.

They're really trying. Hahahahaha. Watching hockey has turned me into a huge pessimist lately.

PS - I agree with the crowd.

I was worried because the ref looked worried.

Maybe they were worried because it actually went the Wings way for once? That could be a bad sign.

So their second guy in doesn't get a penalty? I have wanted to see the third, forth, fifth, etc all get penalties. A reach over and face grab....gone.

Wings get a bad call in their favor and don't take advantage. Remember that.
