Wings-Avs Non Rivalry

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on October 12, 2010 by davepoleck

Pavel Datsyuk scored his 200th career NHL goal tonight, which was is 595th of his career. Datsyuk is playing in his 609th career game.

The Wings are currently being outplayed by the Avs, being outshot 21-10, but still hold a 3-1 lead with about five minutes to go in the second. Val Filppula’s pass to set up Franzen for the Wings’ third goal and his second of the night was absolutely beautiful. The continued improvement of the line will make the Wings dangerous all season long.

Update: Well, the Wings dominated the last five minutes of that period and after a fantastic cycling shift by Modano-Hudler-Cleary, a turnover led to a weak second goal for the Avs.

Quick Turnaround

In the past 24 hours Peter Mueller has found out that he has been traded from Phoenix to Colorado, got out to the Avs game against the Ducks last night (in which he scored in), and now has to head back to Phoenix for a game against his former team tonight. That is a pretty quick turnaround to be facing your former teammates and brotherhood. Same deal goes for Wojtek Wolski, who went the other way in the Mueller deal.

Should be an interesting game.

Kyle Cumiskey

What a beauty overtime winner by Kyle Cumiskey last night, just 9 seconds into the extra frame. Atlanta jumped out to a 3-1 lead against the Avs, but couldn’t hold on after a third period charge.
