Wings 5-Flames 2

So, the score would say that the win was completely definitive, but the last two goals were in the final minutes--one being an empty-netter. Still, the guys played rather well and it is good to see them getting back to true form. VF is playing much better and is now at +2 and has 8 points. He's been getting about 16 minutes on the ice per game and has been moved around a lot, so things should start clicking for him soon. Go Baby Boy!

Holmstrom was sent home because of his back spasms--he is to have an MRI to see what is going on. Cleary is doing better and should get back into the line-up shortly--hopefully his vision will be fully restored before that happens. And it still doesn't look as if Chelios will be back too soon--I wonder if he will finally just hang the skates up for good? But, things are looking better on the injury front.

Monday finds the Wings in Vancouver for the last of the Western Canada games--hopefully they can win and have a sweep. Right now, the Wings have a 10-1-1 road record. Not bad at all!
