More Wings/Predators Action Tonight

With any luck I'll attempt another liveblogging tonight, of the Wings/Predators rematch at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. First, a few thoughts and updates from last night's game:

1. Martin Erat is going to be out for 4 weeks due to a sprained knee suffered during a collision with teammate Jason Arnott last night. That's a tough blow to a Nashville offense already missing Peter Forsberg and Steve Sullivan.

2. Marek Zidlicky came in at a dreadful -5 rating for the night (prompting a lively discussion on the Preds message board), whereas the Red Wing line of Kyle Calder/Robert Lang/Jiri Hudler came in at +3 each (as did defenseman Chris Chelios).

3. I can't recall when it occured, but there was an amusing moment when Chelios got the puck in his own end, and with plenty of space around him, stood there and craned his neck to look up at the scoreboard to see how much time was remaining. A pretty ballsy move by the aged veteran...

Check back later this evening for more Central division action...
