I agree, RM.

Let’s get two in a row.

Another “W” and 2-pt.s.

L.G.R.W.

I’d like to see a solid game from Jimmy tonight. And a win, obviously.

It is so important to get the first goal when playing the Preds. If they get the first one Trotz has them trained to shut the game down, and make it so boring even the opposing players just want the game to end.

Thanks, RedM.  Toasting the GDT with a mug of Colombian goodness.  Coffee…for now.  As game time goes on, it’s marching dust plus whatever’s left of the Guinness and Jameson’s in the cupboards.  These are the cheapshotacular Preds after all.

Kindl-Quincey

Poor Kindl. 

· Danny DeKeyser had his 1st NHL point/assist vs. NSH on 4/14/13

I think that was the same game that he had a sprained wrist and was out just days before the Wings really had to amp it up to get into the playoffs.

Go Wings.

I did.  I do recall that the technology exists to condition the playing surface so it doesn’t become too brittle.

Maybe the next technology is in manufacturing a water solution with a bit of antifreeze.

We like to call that an aperitif.

Daily highs in the 80’s for the past week, breaking records that date back 90 years or so.

It’ll only be about 40F here in Vegas on New Year’s Eve, but it’ll warm up to about 63F for New Year’s Day.

Updated starting lineup to reflect changes as quoted by Khan(!):

Other lines: Tatar-Datsyuk-Bertuzzi, Nyquist-Zetterberg-Alfredsson, Miller-Andersson-Cleary. Eaves and Samuelsson look like scratches.— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive)

Yes and yes. Gawd knows we need to solidify the goaltending. I have no problem going with the hot hand when indicated, but…............
Monster is a back-up. Period.

Time for Jimmah to get the job done, and earn the $5 Mill. (No, I am not slamming anyone)

Thanks RM.

Bitches.
