I'll post lines when they're known. Howard is starting in net.
meh :/ Im afraid we'll lost this game. Tampa is playing good and our D is or on or off. Also Filpp probably ends with 2+1 and 4-1 win for tampa...
Wings will get lit up in this one, Filppula and Stammer with great games, 5-2 loss.
I am really liking that Tatar will be in the top six tonight. 4-3 Wings.
Tatar, Alfie and an anchor like Cleary I assume...
It's crazy that Babcock instantly stated that he won't be splitting up D & Z with Weiss and Franzen out. I understand they're playing well together, but they play great apart too. They're great players, period. Top 6 should be
It's gonna hurt to see Filppula playing for the other team, especially if he scores tonight.
The Wings will win this game. Book it. Tampa stinks too.
They're 11-4 though... Their offense is potent, and their goaltending has been good. I would be surprised if we won.
Then who would be playing center?
My guess is it'll be
Z - D - Bert
Tatar - Andersson - Alfredsson
Cleary - Helm - Abdelkader
Miller - Glendening - Sammy/Eaves
Glendening will probably take Helm's spot now and again just to give him a rest and not overplay him.
They're in the lead of the Atlantic and have more points than we do despite having played two games less. I wouldn't underestimate them, especially not with the people we have to make do without and Howard in no shape to steal anything.
That being said, I put my vbookie bet on them which all but guarantees we're going to win.
lines according to khan
Cleary on the fourth line?
im just as shocked as you. Maybe babs is seeing the light
for half a period, then 3rd line. by the end of 2nd period he's a 1st liner.
bottom six isn't producing. INSERT CLEARY
I've stated since last season that I thought Tatar and Helm would cause all kinds of problems together against opposing teams, so naturally I'm very excited to see it play out. I like what Alfie brings as well with his patience with the puck. Could be a surprisingly very good line to some..
With that being said Helm is obviously still in training camp basically, so I'm surprised Mike's throwing him to the fire. Wouldn't be surprised if Glendening takes all of his PK time tonight to ease some of the minutes .
I thought this too.
But I thought it would be on the third line. On the second line it might be a different story.
Filppula goes ape **** on us. Lightning strikes (lol) again and brings us down 5-3. Howard sucks again. Only exciting thing to watch is our first line against theirs. Every other line blows and produces nothing. Maybe helm can cause tampa bay to commit a penalty so we can get a pp.
I like giving Helm a chance on line 2. Will be nice to see a scoring line with some speed. I think Helm's offensive skills are slightly underrated around here. He's got some decent puck skills. He's a much better scoring line option than Andersson, Abby, and Glendening imo. Should be fun.
And cleary on line 4
yeah, not high expectations. hoping for win, expecting a loss. tampa has played very good this season.
flip is also basically guaranteed to get a point or two.
I think Tampa is going to regress. Might as well start tonight.
