And I bet you were just saying to yourself, “you know, our injury list is looking a little too slim”. Well, here you go:
Three players went down during that stink fest on Saturday. Detroit is proving that no lead is safe until that final buzzer sounds. Now, given the fact we could only run 3 full lines with Miller, Eaves, and Holmstrom going down from flying pucks…I suppose it’s reasonable for the team to get tired towards the end of the game.
We’re still only 2 points out of 8th place, and 3 points away from 7th. And the Cali trips are done for the season. We have one last trip to the West to face the Flames, Oilers, and Canucks in mid-March, but aside from that, most of the games will be in or near own time zone. That’s the ‘okay’ news.
The ‘good’ news is that tomorrow we’ll get Franzen back. We’ll also be playing a St. Louis team that has to fly all the way out to Denver tonight and be back tomorrow to face us in their barn.
So my advice to you is to crumple up Saturday’s game and throw it in the trash. Put it out of your mind, if you can. Hopefully those “Questionable”‘s will yield a favorable answer.
