And They Won

Believe it or not, hockey fans, but the Brodeur story was NOT the only one tonight! There actually were eleven games played and a few were unexpected. (San Jose lost to Phoenix, for example.)

After a slow start--they gave up two goals before scoring themselves--the Wings managed to win the game. It was a bit dicey at the very end when Detroit couldn't BUY an empty-net goal--unbelievable--but all worked out fine. It was great to see Z, Pasha, and the Mule all scoring in the same game. Too bad Hoss didn't get a goal tonight.

It will be interesting to see how the Wings play when they get everyone back from injuries. Lilja should be back from IR later this month; Holmstrom is day-to-day, after injuring his leg only four games after coming back from surgery; and VF should (?) be back on Friday after missing three games because of back spasms. They have to start getting ready for the playoffs and there are few games left for them to begin.

I'm a little worried- Devils are at the 'Canes tonight...but Crolina did beat them on Jan. 6. Crossing my fingers.

Devils are coming on a little too strong for my tastes--hopefully Carolina can take down Brodeur tonight. GO 'CANES!!
