    I don't wanna see one of those games where they lose to the JEts 2-1 and everyone saying "too bad they couldn't carry over some of those goals from the Phoenix game"

    No point in returning, even if it's minor.

    I'm impressed with Conner so far, I wouldn't mind seeing him in the rotation more. He seems to be the only one really working for breakaways, which I'd like to see more of from the Wings. Plus it's fun to see his little legs get moving.

    Conner should be playing for us every single game. I was actually going to make a thread about it. He, like Helm, has no finish though.

    They both do seem to go all "deer in headlights" when they get 10 feet from the net, don't they?

    Yep. They don't have a finish, and on the breakaways, they seem to do the following;

    Low shot, block, or missing the net.
    Try to open up the five hole, and put the puck in on the backhand
    High over the net
    Five hole shot miss




    Conner, Abby, and Helm is a fantastic fourth/third line. Conner should be up, every single game. He's fantastic on the PK.

    Speaking of that PK, Miller has been so agressive. He's almost had a breakout a few times now.

    Good idea to keep the lines the same. However, our second period was brutal against PHX.

    Game Day Preview

    Game day preview courtesy of NHL.com


    High-flying Jets visit hot Wings

    JETS (13-11-4) at RED WINGS (17-9-1)

    TV: CBC-JETS, FS-Detroit (HD)

    LAST 10 : Winnipeg 7-2-1; Detroit 8-2-0


    Season Series : This is the first and only game these teams will play this season. That will change next season after the League's realignment plan puts the Jets and Red Wings in the same conference, meaning they'll face each other six times.

    Big Story: It's a matchup pitting two of the League's hottest teams, but Detroit boasts an impressive 11-2-1 record at home, while Winnipeg is just 4-7-4 on the road and played on Friday night at home - beating the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 for their season-high fourth straight win. The Red Wings are coming off an impressive 5-2 rout of the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena in which they scored all five goals in the first period - all by different players. Pavel Datsyuk is expected to play despite nursing a lower body injury, but otherwise Detroit is in pretty good shape. The Jets are getting strong play from Bryan Little, Evander Kane and Blake Wheeler to help make up for a few injuries.

    Team Scope:

    Jets: The Jets have picked up 17 points in their last 11 contests and kept it rolling on Friday night against the Hurricanes. They led 2-0 just 5:04 into the game, scored twice on the power play in 72 seconds in the second period and breezed despite allowing a pair of third-period tallies. Dustin Byfuglien, Tim Stapleton, Kane and Little all scored, while Wheeler added three assists and now has 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in the past 10 games. Backup goalie Chris Mason picked up the win in place of starter Ondrej Pavelec - who will start in Detroit after beating the Boston Bruins 2-1 on Tuesday at MTS Centre

    "You'd like (Mason) to play at home as well," Jets coach Claude Noel told the Winnipeg Free Press. "And what do you want to do, throw him into the net in Detroit? I mean, there's a respect factor you try to have with players. I wouldn't feel really great if you threw me out against Detroit. That's like throwing somebody out to the dogs."


    Red Wings: The emergence of Valtteri Filppula as a force continued against Phoenix. In his first game back after missing a game In St. Louis with a deep cut to his right shin from a skate blade, Filppula scored a goal and added an assist in a Detroit's five-goal first period. The line of Filppula at left wing, Henrik Zetterberg at center and Jiri Hudler on the right side is one of the hottest in the League. Against the Coyotes, they each finished with two points and seemed to create quality scoring chances every time they went over the boards in the first period.

    "Obviously (Filppula) is on fire and (Zetterberg) is on fire," said Hudler, who's scored a goal and added an assist in each of the past two games. "They both fly. I think (we're) just playing smart (and) simple - not as fancy as people would think. (We) just grind it out and win some battles down low and put it on the net. Those nice plays come out come after that."


    Who's Hot: Johan Franzen has scored four goals and tallied 10 points in his past 10 games for the Red Wings, while Zetterberg has two goals and eight assists in the past 10 contests. Little is scorching
    hot for Winnipeg with points in five straight games (three goals and four assists). Kane is also red-hot, with 10 goals and 14 points in his last 11 games - including a goal and a helper against the Hurricanes. He's picking up more assists, but don't expect him to stop passing up shots because of it.

    "You definitely want to be developing in all areas," Kane told the Winnipeg Free Press. "But in terms of me turning into a playmaking, pass-first guy... probably not. That's just not the makeup of me. I'm
    a shoot-first guy. I'm more of a goal-scorer than a playmaker."

    Injury Report: Detroit is still without forward Jan Mursak (fractured ankle) - who returned to practice on Friday - and forward Patrick Eaves (fractured jaw), who is still weeks away. Winnipeg still has Tobias Enstrom (fractured collarbone), Ron Hainsey (lower body), Derek Meech (lower body) and Aaron Gagnon on injured reserve, while Eric Fehr and Nik Antropov (both undisclosed) are day to day.

    Stat Pack: The first two periods could be even more important than normal for both teams, who each boast strong records when tied or leading after 40 minutes. The Jets improved to 13-1-2 on Friday night when leading or tied after two periods, while Detroit is 16-1-1. The Jets are 0-10-2 when trailing after two periods, while Wings are just 1-8-1 when they trail heading into the third behind. The Wings have won eight in a row at Joe Louis Arena.

    Puck Drop: For all of the Wings' firepower, their best player might be Jimmy Howard, who's having an outstanding season in goal. He said the extended time he spent in Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League plus his first two years in the NHL have prepared him well for the rigors of the League. Last spring's playoffs helped too -- Howard was one of Detroit's best performers.

    "It's just a comfortablity factor with this being my third year out there," Howard said after Friday's practice. "I feel like I can be a difference maker out there. I've got a lot of confidence coming off the playoffs last year and I'm just trying to keep it going."
