Kulfan Ice Chips

December 30, 2005

From the Detnews:

Ice chips
Mikael Samuelsson, who took a puck to the right leg last week, also stayed off the ice Thursday as a precaution against irritating the injury.

… The Wings are excited about playing the traditional New Year’s Eve game against Columbus, and former Wing Sergei Fedorov.

“It’s usually hard to get a ticket, and there’s a great atmosphere around the rink,” forward Jason Williams said. “It’s fun for both the fans and the players. With Sergei coming back, it’ll just add to the night.”

… Babcock will likely put Kris Draper at center for Saturday’s game, along with Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg and Robert Lang.

Iwo:  Again, the Wings’ strength down the middle is amazing, IF: Draper picks it up at all offensively, Lang uses his body more and looks up “forecheck”, Datsyuk and Z stay healthy.
