From Khan(!) …
As expected, Jason Williams will take a seat tonight…probably for the rest of the play-offs unless someone else gets hurt before Patrick Eaves is healthy enough to return to action. Lilja is also back in the lineup…since we’re going to be spending at least some time in the box. The good news is that Bill McCreary is one of the refs…and he knows what he’s doing (moreso than the others, anyway). Chris Lee will be the other official.
I’ve long stated that Mattias Ritola is one of my all-time favorite hockey names. There is little that would make me happier than hearing it announced by Bud Lynch tonight preceded by the words “Red Wings goal scored by #42…”. Let’s see what you got kid.
Lineup announcements = instant excitement about tonight.
Let’s go Wings.
