Star Power Matters: Wings and Hawks Split Preseason Home-and-Home

That's what you pay the big guys the big bucks for.

In a back-to-back series between the Red Wings and Blackhawks, we got pretty much what anyone could have expected. On Friday, the Wings played with their stars and Chi-town mostly did not. Result: Red Wings 3-2 victory. Tonight, we had the opposite, with Detroit opting to rest its studs, and the Hawks came away with a 4-2 win of their own.

I don't wanna look too hard into things with it being preseason and all, but it's nice to note that most of our young guys are actually doing pretty well so far: putting up points, staying on the plus side of the ratings, and so on. This whole not playing your A-Team every night thing is starting to grate on me though. I'm obviously ready for the regular season.

Next on the skid is a date with the New York Rangers tomorrow at 5PM ET, conveniently in the middle of my shift at work, so I don't have to think too hard on it.

Even so, Wingnuts, I still say: Let's Go Red Wings!!
