Miss St. James from the Free Press provides a little insight, and a little mystery about who is playing tonight.
Coach Mike Babcock said Jimmy Howard is starting in goal, but he hadn’t decided who was out among the forwards (either Brad May or Ville Leino) and defensemen (either Derek Meech or Brett Lebda).
The top two lines will be Pavel Datsyuk with Henrik Zetterberg and Dan Cleary, and Valtteri Filppula with Williams and Todd Bertuzzi.
Alright, well here’s the combos that I think will see the puck drop tonight…
I’m putting May in there just for the hope that he has a chance to introduce his fist to Marty Erat’s big, fat yapper. And here’s hoping that the 4th line doesn’t ice the puck. Other than that…they should NEVER be on the ice to take a face-off. And just because I feel like throwing this in here again…
“B-B-B-B-Bring it on, Bubba!”
