10-4 good buddy

Yep. That’s the combined scores of the two games Detroit has played against Ottawa so far.  Back-to-back 5-2 losses to the rare team that’s quite a bit behind the Wings in the standings.  Hilariously, Ottawa’s goal differential is way better though.

Detroit’s practice yesterday involved the same forward lines we saw against Columbus, but it looks like Jake Walman is going to be bumping Jordan Oesterle out of the lineup after having missed that game with a still undisclosed injury.

Speaking of undisclosed things, Givani Smith didn’t practice and they haven’t specifically told us what’s up.  The evidence suggests it’s concussion-related, but the team is under no obligation to tell us.  I just want him to be/get healthy.

The Red Wings can’t even hold a lead against themselves lol.
