Flip helped Z and Z helped Flip. You want Franzen to help Pav and vice versa? You know who helped Pav? Nyquist did.

Hard to make the most of anything when you get five freaking minutes of ice time with Emmerton (no offense to him...but he's no Datsyuk. Hell, he's not even Bertuzzi).

Keys to the playoffs? 1) No one else gets hurt. 2) Get Conklin as far away from the net as possible. Hell, send him back to Alaska. 3) Play Brendan Smith. 4) Avoid losing teams like the Blue Jackets, Canadiens, Islanders, and Maple Leafs. 5) Play every game at the Joe. If the Wings do those things, well, they should win the Cup then.

I haven't seen a Av drop so quickly to the ice...well...since earlier in the 1st first period of this game when someone took a dive.

Is it time to change NHL playoff seeding? | Detroit Free Press |
Interesting question. Why not guarantee the division winners a playoff spot but not necessarily home ice and a top three seed? That way instead of Det/Nsh and Pit/Phi in round one. You have 1) Blues, 2) Canucks, 3) Red Wings, 4) Predators, etc. In the East you get 1) Rangers, 2) Penguins, 3) Flyers, etc. Winning the division will make sure you get in the top eight, but you have to not suck ass if you want home ice. The best teams should get the best seeds, no? Don't punish teams for being in tougher divisions. Otherwise, like this season, you'll have a top three or four team in the conference guaranteed to be gone in the first round.

Brad Marchand had his hair massacred for charity | ProHockeyTalk
Looking good, Nose Face. Pretty cool charity done by the Bruins. Can you imagine Hank cutting off his hair? Flip losing his blonde locks? Eaves bald?

Let's Go Red Wings.
