Thoughts on Game 15 (3-2 shootout win vs. Nashville)
-- When you're team has someone like Jiri Hudler filling a role as a fourth-liner and second PP unit guy and producing three goals in four games, you've got a superb team.
-- Derek Meech is one of the top six defensemen on this team right now. It might be time for him to bump Brett Lebda on occasion although that's not likely to happen.
-- Wow is Chris Osgood playing well. But it's not time to debate whether he should supplant Dominik Hasek. Osgood has stepped in wonderfully in November. But the playoffs are a long way away. Hopefully, the Red Wings will have Ozzie playing like this in the spring to give them options.
-- It's remarkable that Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg haven't been better shootout performers thus far in their careers. Datsyuk was at 44 percent entering last night and Zetterberg was at 33 percent.
