After a great season-opening win against Boston followed with a disappointing loss to Anaheim, I am ready for hockey again. We haven't played in a few days, so it's about damn time.
The Red Wings basically played a flawless game against Boston last time around, if they can replicate that once again, then they shouldn't have an issue bringing home the W for this one.
I'm looking for a big game from the kid line tonight, I'd like to see them start scoring. Plus, I just really really miss Tomas Tatar goal celebrations. I need it like I need oxygen.
