Canucks Visit Joe Louis Arena Tonight

Enough Olympic talk, enough injury talk, enough goalie talk and defensive talk too.

Focus on the game tonight, play a full game and come away with 2 points any way you can.

I said a few games ago the Wings needed 7 out of a possible 10 points and they have 3 at this point.

A win tonight gives them 5 which means they can get away with collecting at least two points while playing the two teams in Florida.

Tonight is key, Vancouver has been playing badly and the Wings will face Eddie Lack in goal tonight.

Get the power play working, get to the net and skate every shift boys.

With that, it's a live blog bitches!

Could be a problem with the Sisters of the Divine Agony crowd in attendance tonight.  They might misunderstand. cheese

End of two. 1-0 lead. You know what that means?

Time for no booze. NO lead is safe, and I want to be comfortable when we lose it.

Evenin all. Watching that last 21-15-26 shift, I was struck with the thought that, when we get center depth back, if it came down to a battle between Sheahan and Helm for third line center, I don’t feel as confident that I’d pick Helm. I probably still would, but Sheahans game just keeps getting better.

Look at it this way. We don’t have the dreaded two goal lead, so when the soccer weenies score two in the third, we won’t have to suffer through OT and freakin shoot out.

Just give me some booze.

“Partially Kronwalled” is a thing, eh? Kesler couldn’t handle a full Kronwalling, and probably would have flopped to the ice in a swan dive.

The slashing and hacking have started already—or maybe that’s just generic Canuck hockey.
