Watch for Williams, Sergei, Ozzie tonite

December 31, 2005

–Jason Williams has feasted off Columbus this year, racking up 5 points in three games (3g, 2a). Iwo postgame:  Feast ended with two SOG, a hit and a giveaway.

–How will Sergei react?  Hard to tell with him.  Did the boos showering from the JLA rafters prior to Osgood stoning him in the shootout stay with him?  He’s been effective against his old mates–largely, with Anaheim.  Last season he scored three times in three games and averaged over 19 minutes in ice time. Iwo postgame:  Worst night he’s had facing the Wings.  See above.

–Interesting to consider whether Ozzie’s feeling the heat since his pal Manny is back from GR and ostensibly healthy.  Mike Babcock was his typical verbose self in this morning’s papers:

“If you’re playing good, you’re playing,” Babcock said. “It’s simple.”

Mikael Samuelsson should be a go tonite after missing yesterday’s practice with a sore leg. Iwo postgame:  Oh, he was a go.  Two goals to increase his season total to a career-best 16.  Start the campaign, Kenny Holland for exec of the year.
