Oilers @ Red Wings - 11/11

Aside from the first line, I'm not thrilled about any of those changes. Of course, the first line wasn't changed so maybe I'm wording that wrong but you get my point.
As Saler mentioned, Jiri Hudler is being given a lot of chances to find his game. Three lines that were clicking were broken up to give him that chance so it'd better be worth it.
I'll be missing most of this one as my horribly-scheduled soccer season wraps up. A 7:50 game means I should be back in front of the TV with about 15 minutes left in the third. Sweet.

Mike Modano did not score on his penalty shot.

Sounds like it. By the time I caught up with things, the game was well in hand, but Ken Kal and Paul Woods were talking about how solid the new lines were.
At least something's working with all the line switches?

Those new lines worked out pretty well, eh? I was especially worried about Todd Bertuzzi but he was all over the place. As was Justin Abdelkader, but I think that's becoming expected.
Tomas Holmstrom's goals were typical Homer goals, mucking it out in front of the goal.
Jimmy Howard looked solid but I think he had his usual trouble controlling rebounds. It bit the Wings on the ass on Dustin Penner's goal, not that the goal mattered.
Pavel Datsyuk's hit on Penner in the third? Fun.
Mike Modano's penalty shot attempt was a decent shot that I don't think he put where he wanted to. Quick shot, on Khabibulin fast, but fired right into his pad.
Obviously a very good game overall. Not much more you can ask for.
