Game #68 – Hawks vs. Red Wings: Lineups & How They Were Built


Notes: Carlsson left the game early last night after taking a shot to the ear, and you would think in the name of precaution and also this being the fucking Wings the Hawks could get away with sitting him for a night. Then again, Nick Seeler might be just that bad…Both Keith and Murphy played over 25 minutes last night. Some of that is being down to five d-men for half the game, but some of that is keeping Boqvist far too sheltered. He’s playing well…If you can’t give Subban a start against this collection of nitwits, then what’s even the point?

Red Wings

Notes: WHO?!…The Wings went with seven d-men last game so we’re assuming they’ll do so again…even if six of these guys suck to high heaven…Lindstrom is not Nicklas’s kid, but you can be sure the Wings drafted him to fool their fans into think he was…Larkin has nine points in his last seven games, and that’s the only line on this outfit that has any pulse whatsoever…
