It's not quite a must-win for the Red Wings as they take on the Sharks this afternoon but it's close. A win here means a split in San Jose and turning this series into five games with Detroit having home ice. A loss means they go home needing to hold serve at Joe Louis Arena.

Mike Babcock says the Wings will need the puck more today. Kinda hard to argue with that.

The Wings got on their heels in Game One after an early lead. They need to stay on top of things today, not just getting an early lead but extending it. Not letting up.

There may be a roster change for Detroit but that's not confirmed yet. Drew Miller could be swapped for Mike Modano or Kris Draper. Everything else stays the same, including the lines that feature Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk playing together.

Start time is 3:00 on NBC.

No lineup change, Draper, Modano and Kindl are the scratches.

Beautiful day to be inside watching hockey. Have I mentioned that I hate afternoon games yet?

Oh, Sharks PPG. What a surprise that the PK fails again. Though it was looking good for awhile there.

They're making us look like what we make other teams look like.... This is not us. We're done.

I think Jimmy just made a great save but they won't show the replay.

Have the Wings won a battle along the boards at all today?

One good shift. Glad to see the Wings can still turn it on, they just have to actually do it.

This had been a let down. Completely and totally unmatched. I don't have an answer and I think it's only a matter of time for golf.

Five minutes isn't enough. I'll expand on that later.

I did say they (sharks) are better at basically every position, but i didnt think the wings would be dominated like this hahah. Complete garbage, and oh yea, we were the only team not to make a deadline deal. Old and Overrated! Told ya so?

It's not like the Wings are getting blown off the ice...they have their chances...just not able to finish, and maybe that's the talent of the other team...maybe it's puck luck. Howard has NOT disappointed. Let's see what the third game brings before we write them off completely.
