Game 5

Detroit, Michigan

Tonight it's game five in Edmonton with the series being tied 2-2...Both teams went on the road and won the games..I was confident up 2-0 and going back home and at least win one game on home ice but that didn't happen...Edmonton's second line and Bob killed us the last 2 games...I think for tonight's game I will make my first line change of the series...I will just switch my Z/Marleau on the 1st line and put my shutdown line against Edmonton's hot line..I expect Richards, Pommy and Doan to try and slow them down...Also my pairing of Stuart/Aulie will go against the Anisimov line...Corvo and Robidas will play on the first pairing...It's a must win game for the Wings or else we will be facing elimination going back to Detroit...We gotta win tonight to close it out in Detroit...Hopefully my veterans will have a strong performance tonight because we need them to perform to go far in these playoffs..


We haven't been able to score a lot of goals on Bob so tonight we gotta shoot the puck on net and crash it...We gotta screen him and make it difficult to see the puck..We gotta make life harder for hm to make the saves...Chances will come our way hopefully a few of them will go in...Pavelec also has to try and outplay Bob if we want any chances at winning tonight...Edmonton will come out strong since the game is at their barn..We gotta score the first goal and keep the crowd quiet by dominating the play in the offensive zone..Go Wings!!
