Jonas Gustavsson makes his third start in a row in goal tonight for Wings at Colorado, giving Jimmy Howard a couple more days to heal hand.— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) October 17, 2013
Also, here's something to look forward to before the game tonight.
I don't care how many times Patrick Roy says the rivalry is dead, it's always rekindled in fans hearts and minds every time the Waaaavalanch and the Wings face each other.
You know, it's really refreshing to see a team playing 3 highly skilled, clean, gentlemanly players on their top line who have never been suspended 20 games for leaving his feet to deliver a deliberate and dangerous hit to the head, or suspended 20 games in juniors for slashing a referee, nor has had countless dirty hits and questionable altercations since then. I mean, that name redacted guy the Wings have on their top line is such a monster. That one bad thing he did 10 years ago is definitely grounds to crucify him at every opportunity, despite the fact that he's been clean since then. It's nice to know that there a team in the NHL who doesn't employ such a despicable player and has the moral high ground.
Probable Avs lineup:
|Ryan O' Reilly||Matt Duchene||Steve Downie|
|Gabriel Landeskog||Paul Stastny||Alex Tanguay|
|Jamie McGinn||Nathan MacKinnon||P.A. Parenteau|
|Cody McLeod||John Mitchell||Patrick Bordeleau|
|Erik Johnson||Jan Hejda|
|Cory Sarich||Andre Benoit|
|Ryan Wilson||Nate Guenin|
What are you most looking forward to about this game?
Let's Go Red Wings!!!
