Thank you for the (again) perfect game day preparation.

I think we can win today.

We had 3 days rest and time to train. Detroit played last night against Ottawa. They lost Pavel Datsyuk due to a elbow against his head and respective concussion. Detroit is in a bad shape.

So i belive we have a fair  50% chance to win.

3:2 Buffalo

Red Wings' Pavel Datsyuk out for Sunday's game at Buffalo after being elbowed in the head (video)

The Detroit Red Wings will be missing their best player Sunday when they visit the Buffalo Sabres, as Pavel Datsyuk didn’t make the trip due to a possible concussion.

Datsyuk was elbowed in the jaw by defenseman Jared Cowen with 7:48 remaining in the Ottawa Senators’ 4-2 victory Saturday at Joe Louis Arena.

Datsyuk was shaken up momentarily but got up and played three more shifts. His last shift, however, lasted only 12 seconds, and he did not play in the final 1:51.

“We left him behind,’’ general manager Ken Holland told MLive.com. “After the game he felt, I don’t know the word, but he wasn’t quite right. We’re going through the protocol, see how he feels in the next day or two.’’

I always try to be optimistic, but it's getting frustrating seeing the constant flip flopping of the line up and lines. I know that Nolan doesn't know these guys yet, but I think you have to give them more than one game together. You have guys on the 3rd and 4th lines one night and their on the 1st and 2nd lines the next. I think a key to winning is getting some continuity, letting players get familiar with their linemates. This drove me crazy watching Rolson doing it and even when Lindy did it at times.

Hoped otherwise, but Detroit is getting hammered in this division from all sides, hoped their skillset would outmatch the rough play.
its not their style of play but hey welcome to the northeast division.

The Sabres best chance is that the Red Wings feel sorry for the Sabres players for wearing those god awful 3rd jerseys.

They're definitely going to win tonight just to make sure that there are about a million jokes on Twitter about how maybe the uniforms aren't so bad after all.

I like the new 3rd and fourth line grouping think the could last a while and the third line could be a number 1 or 2 in a couple years while the fourth might make a great checking line. The first 2, cant add much except expect more of the same. Only 3 out of the six work and show any toughness.

Please entertain me Sabres.

I read this post and thought what if you took two teams that fans were familiar with and changed the uniforms. Not the numbers and names on the back, just have them wear the other teams uniforms. Fans go into games almost pre-programmed. I wounder what type of effect on the fans it would have.

So how bad does Nolan sound off today if they lose to Detroit at home? Detroit played last night and Buffalo with 2 nights off. No excuse that Buffalo shouldn't have energy or the legs with 2 days off. Should be very interesting. Maybe the blame on the mustard jerseys?

Gray. It needs more gray.

There are a TON of Red Wings fans at Pearl Street. I feel more comfortable in my Goat Head than Blue and Gold.

According to Twitter, the Sabres just took the ice in their new uniforms for the pre-game warm-up.

And according to my imagination, everyone in the arena just exploded or had their faces melt off like when they opened the Ark at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
