9\30 The Wings lose a penalty filled game in ST. Louis 3-5. Most of the stars sat out. Legace was leaky at best. Scoring were Hull, Devereaux, and Datsyuk. Next up: at Toronto tonight. Chris Osgood won his debut in New York last night. 9\29 Brett Hull netted two and Jason Williams one as the Wings beat the Blackhawks 3-1. Next up: at St. Louis tonight. From the Free Press: THE OSGOOD FILE September 29, 2001 How Red Wings fans will remember goaltender Chris Osgood, who became an Islander on Friday: * As the 21-year-old rookie who cried at his locker after the Sharks completed their first-round, seven-game upset in 1994. * As the reluctant fighter who went toe-to-toe with Patrick Roy in 1998, as his mother, Joy, watched from the stands, first in horror, then yelling "Oz-zie! Oz-zie! Oz-zie!" with the rest of Joe Louis Arena. * As the beaming son who rode with his mother in the 1998 Stanley Cup parade. * As the Wizard of Oz, as the scoreboard would say after a big save, and as the victim of too many 90-footers, such as from Al MacInnis and Jamie Langenbrunner in the '98 playoffs. * As a classy kid who never complained -- always so baby-faced, even with the goatee -- even when riding the bench behind Mike Vernon in the '95 and '97 playoffs, and even as a 28-year-old when Dominik Hasek arrived to take his job. BY THE NUMBERS Record: 221-110-46 career, 25-19-4 last season. Goals-against average: 2.41 career, 2.69 last season. 3 All-Star Game appearances. All stats are 2nd best in Red Wing history behing the great Terry Sawchuck. 9\28 The Islanders picked up Ozzy from the waiver draft. 9\27 The team's starting to put it all together, beating Toronto 5-2. Scoring were Yzerman, Shanahan, Datsyuk, Butsayev, and Fedorov. Hasek played the entire game. Next up: at Chicago on Friday. 9\26 Shanny and Hull scored in the Wing's 3-2 OT loss in Montreal. Next up: Toronto at the Joe tonight. The Wings left Ozzy unprotected which means any team can pick him up for nothing. All they have to do is honor his existing contract. 9\24 Look for Ozzy to be traded tomarrow, likely to the Rangers or Islanders. The team must turn in their protected list tomarrow for Friday's waiver draft. Look for a Jesse Wallin to be traded soon as well. 9\23 Montreal went up 3-0 before the WIngs showed some life, winning 4-3. Scoring were Holmstrom(2), Gilchrist, and Yzerman with 1:38 to play. Next up: at Montreal on Tuesday. The Wings are 2-2 so far in the preseason. 9\22 Fredrik Olausson scored a goal and two assists in the Red Wings' 4-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. Also scoring were Datsyuk, Fedorov(1+sh). Next up: Montreal tonight. 9\19 Marty Lapointe scored a goal for Boston and led them to a 3-1 win at the Joe last night. Scoring was Butsayev. Chris Osggod played the first half of the game and was spectacular, allowing no goals. Next up: Chicago on Friday night. The Wings have brought in Ladislav Kohn for a tryout. He played in Atlanta last year. 9\18 The Wings looked good in their exhibition opening loss to the Rangers 3-2. Scoring were Shanahan and Dandenault. Some of the young guys looked great. Chris Chelios got tossed in the third for two fights and the Rangers won on the ensuing 7 minute power play. Next up: Boston at the Joe tonight. 9\15 The Wings have moved Sunday's exhibition opener in light of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington D.C. to Monday at 7:30.
