The Red Wings demoralized the Mighty Mighty Bombay Ducks in their season opener Friday night. And Mike Modano even made another cameo!
The best part of the game had to be Pavel Datsyuk, recording the neat, nitty-gritty Gordie Howe Hat Trick (a goal, assist, and a fight) See for yourself:
We didn’t come through with a season preview (my apologies) but all that needs to be said can be said very succinctly: last year was disappointing, and, if the Wings can stay healthy, they’ll rule the West again, with Lord Stanley there for the taking. Back to its majority owner.
