On the Wings: Wings 4, Avs 3

The Wings won a bit of a wild one today, 4-3 over the Avalanche in Denver. The game was closely fought and exciting, with great goaltending on either side and fine offensive play by both teams as well. The rivalry may be different but these two teams still play good hockey against each other.

The Wings jumped right out with the lead, scoring 49 seconds. Brendan Shanahan, playing on a line with Kris Draper and Pavel Datsyuk, sent the puck from behind the net out front to Datsyuk, who one-timed it past David Aebischer to make it 1-0.

The Avs struck back less than a minute later when John-Michael Liles sent a floater from the point and Ian Laperriere got his stick on it to redirect it into the net. Manny didn't have much chance on it, being both screened and beaten by a deflection.

I don't catch the Wings games but rarely - they are doing very well this year, the Pistons are even better. :)

Glad you have something to post about Dave, I have nothing!

John,
I was able to watch part of the Wings/Avs game yesterday on NBC. Haven't seen a Pistons game yet this season though.
Hang in there man. You have a great page and I enjoy reading there regularly. Thanks for coming by.
