Joey MacDonald has been called up from Grand Rapids due to an injury to Jimmy Howard. Hearing on Twitter that it’s back spams.
No word yet on the specifics, including the extent of how long Howard will be out. Rafalski was put on short term IR and Draper on LTIR. Injured …
Not much time for a game preview today. But hey, Red Wings hockey is back after an abnormally long time off. I didn’t see the Wings’ last game in Phoenix, but they got the W, albeit in overtime. Let’s improve upon that and get back to playing Red Wings hockey.

In a word: unacceptable. I have nothing good to say about this game.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Niklas Kronwall (Bertuzzi, Hudler)
Dallas: Brad Richards (pp; Niskanen, Ribeiro); Loui Eriksson (Richards, Neal); Brenden Morrow (Ribeiro); James Neal (Richards, Daley)
– The forecheck showed up occasionally, but it wasn’t …

Oh hai. Coincidentally the minute the hockey season started work picked up and I’ve been absolutely slammed during the day, leaving little to no time for previews and recaps. Thus, I’m getting this out rather earlier than I’d want.

It’s a new week and that means a new episode of TP:60. Recently retired Tyler from the Triple Deke and JJ from Kansas (and Winging it in Motown) join Hollis, Petrella and Discher to talk about the start of the season.

Pisani-Pirri-Kane (apparently Sharp is hurt)
What I’m looking forward to:
The Wings were riled up last …
Now that’s what you call starting with a bang. A big bang, punctuated loudly with 4 goals, a shutout, and a Gordie Howe hat trick.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Johan Franzen (Filppula, Bertuzzi), Mike Modano (Cleary, Stuart), Pavel Datsyuk (Zetterberg, Rafalski), Dan(ny) Cleary (Datsyuk)
Jonathan Ericsson Watch: 1 Game.

This is what we’ve been waiting for all summer. The drop of the puck in regular season. Red Wings opening night.
Here are the lines, courtesy of Khan:
I can’t find an official lineup for the Ducks anywhere, but looking at their roster the most important thing will be managing …
Update, 9:01pm MT: I was thinking when I posted this about setting up some sort of actual pool, with a real winner and everything, and Matt’s link today reminded me of that. So, put in your bets in the comments below. Whoever’s the closest will win a yet-to-be-determined but still …
