For christmas my girlfriend got two tickets for the game tonight. It sucks Zetterberg and Homer are not playing. Hopefully I can get to the game. It's snowing like crazy outhere. GO Wings!

Everbody talks abould Zetterberg, and rightfully so, but Datsyuk has quietly crept up in the scoring race. He is only 4 points behind Zetterberg and is second in the league in assists. Nice job by Holland locking him up for eternity.

I read that for the first time in ten years the avalanche have games that aren't sold out this year. Kind of like detroit. I guess you can't have a good baseball team and a good hockey team in one city. oh well. At least in Detroit all the moneys going to the same man anyway.

Colorado has a good hockey team? When did this happen?

Hasek makes me nervous..... Wish he'd hang up the skates.... Wings look good and I still hate Colorado, almost as much as I hate OSU!

A strong win. Homer and Zets sit again, and the Wings simply get goals elsewhere. Filppula is really starting to impress me. Nice to see Chelios get some rest as well. Hopefully they can keep him fresh. Also...Hasek was really sharp. He hasn't lost in quite awhile.

The one guy on the Avs I do like is Joe Sakic. Too bad he's out for 3 months or so. He's getting up there...we'll see if he ever truly comes back from this Hernia.

Anyway, a good win.
