Chances of Success? Exactly Zero. Live Blog That And Stick It In Your Pipe.

The Wings have lost horrendously to the two worst teams in hockey.  Consecutive waterboardings. Disgusting.

So, tonite, against the team I believe to be the best in the Western Conference?

Tick Tock and Uncle Mike are starting a rookie because our other rookie (McCollum..is he even technically a rookie?) literally "terrifies" the organ-I-zation, and James Tiberius Howard is exhausted.

Our blue line is decimated and our third line can't score.  The fourth line has been instructed to let themselves get hit like Rudy Frigging Stein. Do not shoot. Do not swing. Do not make any offensive gestures. Engelbert's on deck and he's been killing the ball lately.

The Wings beat the Blues last time out after David Backes was tossed due to a clean check to a Detroit tummy.  He's going to be angry. The whole team is going to be absolutely frantic.  The crowd, amped up on Pall Malls and Ten High whiskey, will be quiet only long enough to swap tongues with whatever relative is on their immediate left. 

The opponent. The atmosphere. The Wings, themselves. 

All signs point to the worst regular season defeat in Detroit Hockey History. 

Two goals for Datsyuk. One for Wally and one for Charlie by God Buckets.

Wings win 4-2.

Sea Dog Ale. Womanly flavored brew. Raspberry, blueberry, apricot. And an IPA in the mix for any mens in the house.

May I remind you that my daughter and I witnessed the Wings, undoubtedly a much better Wings team than this one, give up a 3 goal lead in Phoenix, undoubtedly a much worse team than the Blues, in just the third period, the weekend before the last H2H2, so shut my whore mouth.

Errooo.

So, after a shitty day of driving half way across the country “collecting your stuff” and “having a talk”, I can officially say, I damn near pooped when I saw the scoreline, let alone who scored those goals. If the Turnstile and the Franzen can pop goals in, I may well have a little moment, or start believing they all pop onto these forums and listen to our moaning.

Meanwhile, Brunner keeps pushing himself for “my favourite thing in a winged wheel right now” status and seeing that Mrazek kid damn near pull a cartwheel when that goal went in, well, I’m quite impressed. 20 years old eh?
