09:52 AM ET 02.02 | Pavel Datsyuk, who hasn't played a game since the Winter Classic, will captain Team Russia at home in the Winter Olympics. And there probably isn't a thing the Detroit Red Wings can do to prevent him from going to Sochi. I don't believe I have the authority or the power to prevent someone from going to the Olympics," said Ken Holland, the Red Wings general manager. "That's the player's call. When it comes to Pavel Datsyuk, I certainly understand the special opportunity he has, representing his country in his homeland, to be captain, to maybe win a gold medal in your home country, that will be with you for the rest of your life."

Just remember that the more Calgary wins, the less likely BB gets a world-beater in the draft :)

Caps are sticking it pretty good to the Wings. 3 to 1 after 1.

And last years Norris Trophy winner had a nice deflection for a goal last night.
