A Win May Cure All

Paul here again for Bill...

Let's try this: frustration, no passion, lack of confidence, mental lapses and head shaking.

Have I missed anything?  Of course I could include some mistakes made from the front office but it does no good to complain, play with the hand dealt to you.

All I know a win will start to cure what ails the Wings right now.

Will it be tonight or does this continue until Tuesday when the Preds play at the Joe?

Let's play from the opening whistle to the final horn tonight and hope for the best.

It's a live blog b*#%@&s.

Please win this before a shootout.  I don’t want to see 3 shots right into the goalie’s pads.

Come on now, let’s be fair about this.  They usually pound at least one or two of them wide or off the glass.

Haha, now my signal comes back, after the shootout is over.  And I see they lost again.

Monster gave them a chance.  Why can’t our guys score in shoot outs anymore?  Geez.

I hate the fuching shootout.  Just another dimension of crap in the most craptastic of all professional sports leagues.  Damn, I thought the NBA would have to fold for me to say that about the NHL—Bettman has truly overachieved in terms of suckage.

This has actually reached the point of being humorous.

What’s the record for most consecutive OT losses? Maybe the Wings can lay claim to that.

On a positive note, there are 61 games left. Another 61 OT losses will take the Wings to 86 points. Replace just 10 of those with wins and they’re at 96 points. In the East, that’ll get you into the playoffs. So we’ve at least got that going for us.  tongue rolleye

Oh, crap. math failed me again. The next 61 OT losses will only take them to 92 points. So it looks like they’ll have to win 15 games to get to 96 points – and that’s probably too much to ask.

It’s like the Wings are stuck in “Groundhog Day”, but without Bill Murray to keep it interesting.
