It's an afternoon matchup on NBC as the Red Wings host the Coyotes in Game Two of their Western Conference Quarterfinal matchup.

Since Detroit won Game One, a lot of the talk has been about how the Coyotes need to be more physical and/or goalie Ilya Bryzgalov needs to be better. Both may be true and are signs that, on the flip side, the Red Wings can't be content with how they played on Wednesday.

If the Coyotes can find another gear, the Wings will have to as well. They made their share of mistakes on Wednesday night and against a Phoenix team that's firing on all cylanders, that could have been critical.

Detroit hasn't started an afternoon game time on time all season, so that'll be the big issue for them to deal with. The series is too young for a must-win game but if the Red Wings can hold serve at home they'll be in very good position heading to Glendale for Game Three.

If you're not out tailgating down at The Joe, you're wrong!


Seriously, the Wings need to swell up and come out flying when that puck drops. No more slow starts please.

Franzen in bad shape. Cut to hell on the face. Hope he can just be patched up.

Well, that was a scary thing on Franzen. Looks like he was cogent and talking.

Final 30 seconds of the PP almost made up for the first 90.

Defense is looking really good so far. We're going to need that if Franzen doesn't return.

Dats with the G and Homer with the screen. Unstopable.

Homer with another screen. I hope Bryz like the smell of Homer's butt.

Holy christ. Datsyuk goes between the legs, Bryzgalov makes the stop but Helm gets the rebound. What a play.

I always thought Datsyuk and Helm should play together.
Who are you and why are you so perky?

I think that was the best first period I've seen all year. But then, I haven't been able to watch that many games this year. Someone chime in if they agree or not.

BTW, congrats to Pasha for winning the best Russian NHL player of the year.

Maybe not best, definitely most dominant. Fantastic start. Gotta stay with it.

For those not on Twitter, from @timlogue: "BREAKING: NHL found a buyer for the Coyotes! Datsyuk owns them."
