Blashill Logic Rules The Day

If you're wondering why our most electric offensive player is sampling the Swedish wares instead of warming up in Gary's Glendale tonight? Look no further. 

lines:
Tatar-Zetterberg-Nyquist
Mantha-Larkin-Abdelkader
Frk-Nielsen-Helm
Glendening-Sheahan-Booth

The emperor brought us that this afternoon, courtesy of Dana Wakiji.

If asked, and he won't be because the Wings won't allow the Diggers to ask the tough ones, Jeff Blashill would say...what, to that?

"I'm moving Martin down because, after two great games I didn't see much. I need to see three...consecutive...games. Three. Tres. A trio. If not, somebody's moving and somebody's moving quick. Plus, you know, we gotta get Abby going because Abby always gets going...in a contract year."

What the actual Frk.

Literally, the only line that makes sense is the 4th one and don't think it's because it's chock full of talent.

Much like the Holland Referendum, the Blashill Experiment will not end. It won't end because he won't be blamed. He won't be blamed because the talent his daddy has assembled is such that the coach can't specifically be singled out for their play.  

No, I haven't turned pessimistic after one loss. No, I'm not going sad clown like Lions fans fat fingering their calls to The Ticket.

But stupidity needs to be addressed and moving Frk away from Mantha and Larkin now, after three games and obvious chemistry? That's just dumb.

Deep breaths. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

It's a Live Blog and our diva is back charting shots where he should be. Number 1 is back in net, with his dong and his pimp hand.  Do it Jimmah.

Funny, the boys must be wearing their 3rd jersey Tonite. I believe it’s desert camo, cause I only see 1 team so far

PLEASE no, he will be promptly moved to the Wing on the 3rd Line with less than 10 mins TOI, no PP.

No big improvement before contract signing, Count Blashill from his shadow KH

Tough start. Dumb penalties. Poor play. No tenacity.

Sweet Mama Jama they are giving them so many chances. If they can get through this unscathed they can take control of the game next period.

Zetterberg slashing penalty. Does Arizona ever get a penalty? cool mad

rough ...

If we can stay out of the box we should be okay, but wouldn’t it be nice to see us controlling the puck a bit?

Kind of fortunate there but still even.  Find your legs, or for Kronwall, your leg.
