    So this game should be...interesting. Home game for a team that can't score or get its own fans to show up against a team with a ton of fans nearby and is currently rolling offensively.

    Is it Friday, yet?

    You would expect this to be a complete blowout, but it might be a trap game for Toronto where they no show like the Wings did when they were good and went up against bad teams.

    Reminds me of the 1970's when the Olympia only sold out to fans of the TML, Broad Street Bullies and the Canadiens, who kicked our butts. Will we see any red seats?

    Wings win 3-1, Bernier first star, goals by AA, Larkin, Ehn. Book it!

    Tavares was a perfect fit for Toronto. Now they just need to add one more piece along the blue line.

    I have a feeling this will not be the first win we are eluding.

    Guys, they've gone to overtime against Montreal and Chicago, and flat out lost to Ottawa. Maybe we let their own ridiculous fan-base do the parade planning for them?

    Do we have a childhood picture of Abdelkader or Larkin in Red Wings pajamas? Larkin looks young. Stage a picture to troll Tavares.

    Yes, their defense and goaltending isn't exactly stopping the puck from going into their own net.

    However you cannot discount that they have a lot of weapons offensively, and this will be a major test for our young defenders. Coupled with the fact there are going to be a ton of Leafs fans in the building (went to a game two seasons ago and it was a nightmare) this could be frustrating to watch.

    But this could be one of those games where for some reason the Wings take care of business.

    they've been getting absurdly lucky with the goals thus far too

    Matthews and Tavares have a combined 65% of their goals on the season and are at a 50%/33.3% shooting percentage respectively

    That could also mean those two are red hot right now which doesn't bode well for us. Anyways, games are played on the ice and looking forward to this one.

    Typical "should be a blowout" type game that might as well end up with a 2-1 win for us. Toronto ain't gonna score 7 every game and it wouldn't be a shock if they come out with a flat effort against a team like the Wings.

    As much as everyone is being all doom and gloom about the DRW getting smashed by the Leafs, Toronto's GA are as bad as their GF are good. For a team that struggles to score as much as the DRW, I'm not too concerned with the outcome of this game but am excited for the potential to see some goals for the wings.

    Damn cholo out. One of the few players I’m excited about on this team. I think nyquist will make that line better but would have rather tried helm up with them and Abby demoted to the 4th

    Abdelkader's been ****ing invisible. Helm at least gives 100% effort all the time. Abdelkader just seemed like he couldn't keep up.
