    The season is here and Wings open tonight against Anaheim, the team which knocked them out of the playoffs. We all have high hopes for the year, and I look at the team as one of the cup contenders. The last season proved that they can win it all. Go Wings!

    Red Wings beat Anaheim in the shootout in the first game of the season. Old story as Wings outshot Ducks 42-15 but settled for 2-2 regulation tie. Hudler scored the only shootout goal. Zetterberg with a goal and an assist in the game. Holmstrom also scored. Rafalski with an assist in a first game as a Wing. Bertuzzi with a goal and an assist for Ducks.

    Sellouts streaks that long are a hoax anyways. The team usually buys up the additional tickets to make them sellouts if they come close. The streak is the most important thing, even if it costs money to maintain.

    Wings got a point, but I still hate them letting the Hawks back in the game when they were leading by 2 goals after 2 periods. Rafalski with goal and an assist and Zetts with 3 assists in the game.

    Wings hang on to win a close game against the Oilers to go 2-0-1. A couple of mental lapses by Red Wings defense kept Edmonton in the game until Draper scored an empty-netter with 32 seconds left to seal the victory 4-2. Zetterberg had a couple of points and now has 7 points after 3 games (1+6).

    Chelios played in his 1550 game and now is #8 on the NHL's all-time games played list. Lidstrom with an assist passed Forsberg and now is #2 on NHL's all-time points by a Swedish player.

    That would be Mats Sundin with 1,249 pts, then Nick with 873.

    Red Wings beat Calgary 4-2 behind stellar play by the Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom line which is reunited by Babcock due to Franzen being out 3-4 weeks with knee injury. Datsyuk with 2 assists, Zetterberg with an assist and Holmstrom with a goal in the 4th straight game. Samuelsson (2nd) and Draper also scored for the Wings. Ozzie earns his first win of the year subbing for Dominator who is out with bruised knee (he was hit by the puck during the previous game).
