I'm not even sure I should try to put together pre-game notes given how things have been changing today.

Joey MacDonald got sent back to GR yesterday with Chris Osgood scheduled to backup Jimmy Howard tonight. Then Osgood thought he might not be able to go, so the Red Wings signed Troy Passingham to an amateur tryout contract so he could be the backup, as Jan Mursak was called up when MacDonald went down and there isn't cap room for both. Then it turns out that Osgood is in worse shape than he thought, so now he's back on LTIR and MacDonald is on his way to Detroit again. But apparently it's possible that Passingham could still be on the bench if MacDonald doesn't make it in time.

Mursak is in because Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen and Jiri Hudler are still out, joined by Todd Bertuzzi. Hudler says he's ready to go tonight but Mike Babcock isn't so sure. All of these guys would play if it were the playoffs, we're told.

By the time the game starts, who knows what'll have happened?

Ooh, we get Ken and Mickey tonight. Hooray for non-exclusivity.

Well, I came in at 13:00 and that was a pretty damn fast 7 minutes of hockey. Wings need to keep that up.

I get the Vs feed over here.

Solid first period. PK looked good. Defense in general has been solid. A few good offensive shifts.

Not enough pressure on the Canucks. Wings caused that.

Jimmy coming up big this period, rebounding well from last game.

Definately missing the offense of Dats and Franzen tonight.

Need to solve RL here... running out of time.

And why can't we get some elevation on these break-away shots?

Draper had the chance to clear and didn't. That one's on him.

Nope. This game ain't gonna happen with this kind of effort.

And my wish was answered by none other than who? Hudler!

Golf clap.

Great job by Huds to get to the net and Cleary in front.

Oh well. Played a good game but RL was too big. However, we were missing a big chunk of our offense. The past two games, the team has really been looking good. Just need more consistent goal tending and we'll be OK.

Lots of Wings fans complaining about the refs. I'm not thrilled with the officiating (that joke call with two seconds left had no outcome on the game but was an example of a double-standard) but go back to that second Vancouver goal. Yeah, lots of stuff that should have been called but the refs didn't stop Draper from clearing the puck.
