... to the Eastern Conference? It seems like the NHL's "Top Men" have done their best to make the Wings think they're still in the West.
Sorry for the late start, folks.
Aloha. Thanks to Paul for filling in with the LBs and welcome to Red Menace who's assumed the title of GDT Czar.
Quite the coincidence the other night. 2 minutes and change into the game and one of scumbag Patty's henchmen drills Kronwall from behind. Right off the hop, eh Twitchy? Incidental, I'm sure. The only thing missing was Lemieux's 22 and the side boards.
Paul here in relief again for Bill who must have received the get back to work memo sometime today.
Speaking of relief, The Monster is a great name for a baseball closer. You never know, the Tigers may need him tonight.
Rocky Moutain High....
Heck, doesn't every game this season have the word 'rivals' in it when hyping the matchup?
Paul here using Bill's account so he receives the comment notifications and not me. He is without computer access at this moment and asked me to put up the live blog for him.
It feels like old times, playing the Blue Jackets once again, but this time with both teams in the Eastern Conference.
Expect the team from down there to hit anyone wearing red and it will be up to the Wings to play their puck possession game.
The Blue Jackets have improved and will play a full sixty-minute game and will pressure the Wings every chance the have.
With that said...
Third game in four nights, and the second half of a back-to-back?
Update: Wow, sorry about that; apparently I killed the pages and had to remake them realgu... er, quick.
I really had no idea who the Wings were playing today. I assumed they were, but I've been distracted. I can't devote my energies to three teams at once and yesterday it was the Lions and then, the unspeakable obscenity.
Happy Columbus (not the Blue Jackets) Day/Canadian Thanksgiving!
