Michael Caples breaks down the game for, including a look at Maltby’s great goal. A couple of bloggers commented on the game, including Red Wings Blog, Nightmare on Helm Street, and The Triple Deke.

The best moment of the night was when captain Nick Lidstrom registered his 1,000th career point on an assist for the game’s fourth goal. Lidstrom recorded two helpers in the contest, receiving a standing ovation from the fans in attendance when the PA announced his milestone. He joins Mats Sundin as the only two Swedish-born players to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

    Wings need to do something quick. I live in Colorado and I can’t listen to the Avs fans all season. The sad part is all the Avs fans were talking about how bad their team was going to be this year, and the Wings forgot how to play a complete game.

    Kenny get Shanahan back now. Send Ericksson to the minors bring up Andy Delmore he is quicker and a solid positional defenceman. Another goalie should be found also, Howard just isn’t the answer.
