I know I’ve been slacking with pre/post game updates.  However, this is something I’ve been meaning to try: updating during the game.

Pregame:
-New York Islanders got Evgeni Nabokov off waivers.
NHL.com article
-Danny Cleary said that he watches a lot of games on TV due to his injury, and said he texts his teammates and tells them how awful they were.
-John Keating said if there is any more hand holding on the bench there will be hostages.  (Referring to checking for broken hands after the Niklas Kronwall scare).
-Red Wings called up Jordan Pearce (goalie) from Grand Rapids.
-Valtteri Filppula is out with the flu.  Cory Emmerton is called up to replace him.
-Starting goalies are Jimmy Howard (Detroit) and Corey Crawford (Chicago).

First Period:
-Detroit is wearing their white jerseys at home, and Chicago is in their red.
-Emmerton’s profile: Worked out on Aaron Downey’s potato farm during the summer.  Hockey idols are Mario Lemieux & Jamie Macoun.  Favorite author is Stephen King.  Once met Tiger’s great Willie Horton.
-Cory Emmerton gets his 1st NHL goal, assisted by Brian Rafalski (Chi 0, Det 1)
-Marian Hossa is being booed (just like in Pittsburgh, Atlanta. . .)
-Todd Bertuzzi gets 2 minutes for tripping.
-Dave Bolland gets his 51st NHL goal, assisted by Troy Bouwer and Duncan Keith (Chi 1, Det 1)
-Jake Dowell gets 2 minutes for delay of game (puck over glass).

Second Period:
-Detroit got their first franchise win as the Cougars in the old Chicago Stadium.
-Justin Abdelkader gets 2 minutes for roughing.
-Tomas Kopecky get his 35th NHL goal, assisted by Dave Bolland and Duncan Keith (Chi 2, Det 1)
-As the All-Star teams are being chosen, the question is being raised: will the Sedins play together or be separated?
-(For Chicago) On ice referee is saying the puck went in.  Play is under review.  Puck seems to have hit the crossbar.  Goal was disallowed.  Patrick Kane knew the puck hadn’t gone in; only the referee thought it was in.
-(For Detroit) On ice referee is saying no goal.  There was a whistle blown.  Non-replay play.
-Tomas Kopecky gets his 36th NHL goal, assisted by Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp (Chi 3, Det 1).

Third Period:
-Peter Forsberg is going to attempt a comeback with Colorado.  He last played in the NHL during the 2007-2008 season.
-Jarome Iginla has had 20+ goal seasons for the past 12 seasons.
-Troy Brouwer get his 50th NHL goal, assisted by Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane (Chi 4, Det 1).
-Kris Draper gets 2 minutes for roughing (weak call).
-Niklas Hjalmarsson gets 2 minutes for hooking.  (He’s lucky he didn’t get the extra two for arguing).

Chicago wins 4-1.
Detroit’s record is now 29-13-6.
