The Avs are in town for the New Year’s Eve game at the Joe. Colorado is on the second half of a back to back, and it sounds like Craig Anderson will be making his second start in as many nights. Howard is starting for Detroit.

The usually polite Sammy’s telling Sweden to go Eff themselves, and the typically Zen Osgood is getting frustrated and calling out Babcock’s goalie “rotation.” What is this world coming to?
Howard’s been hot recently, winning games, and playing extremely well even in losses (see: Monday’s 0-1 vs Columbus). Osgood hasn’t played …
That was one of those games that proves that low scoring, tight games are no less entertaining than high scoring barn burners. That feeling of “this is fun to watch” was quickly washed out when Lebda lost Modin, who scored in OT. In a strange way, I feel less upset …
My picks for the stars of the week 12/21-12/27
#3: Valtteri Filppula
He didn’t put any points up in his return against Columbus, but Flip was clearly a steadying force out on the ice. As I mentioned in my game recap, it was so relieving to have one of the top players …

Leino will be sitting in the press box tonight, because Babcock isn’t happy with …

This week’s episode features Kris from Snipe Snipe, Dangle Dangle, Tyler from The Triple Deke, and Kyle from Babcock’s Death Stare, and as always, hosted by Chris from Motown Wings and produced by Brian.
Good stuff …
Quick note on the Swedish Olympic roster which was just announced. Lidstrom, Kronwall, Zetterberg, and Holmstrom have been named to the team. Noticeable snub? Mikael Samuelsson. According to @sportsnetmurph (host for Canucks’ broadcasts), his reply to that was:
“I’ll probably regret saying this, but they can go fuck themselves.”
Right wings who …
Very glad that I was wrong when I said this was exactly the type of game the Wings like to lose.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Todd Bertuzzi (pp; Datsyuk, Lidstrom); Todd Bertuzzi (Rafalski, Lidstrom)
Columbus: Antoine Vermette (Voracek)
+ I know that Bertuzzi knew Petrella was in the building when he scored that …
Howard is starting, according the News. And I don’t know how I forgot to mention this, but Filppula’s making his return today. And it sounds like Rafalski is feeling better, too.
I’m posting this from my Blackberry, so forgive me in advance if there’s anything weird with the formatting.
This is …
I feel like I might as well copy and paste half my game recap from the Sunday game. Anyway, following Matt on this one, and not dwelling on the loss. Yeah, it blows to be shutout twice in a row, but I’m trying to be positive and am looking forward …
