Detroit Hopes To Extend Their 2 Game Winning Streak Against Florida

The Wings start a stretch of 7 games in 14 days which means practice time will be tough to come by.  It will be play, rest, play, rest, etc..

So let's start with a win tonight.

I sense a feeling of confidence starting to grow and there is only one way to continue that feeling, just win.

Hopefully Franzen comes out and plays the way we know he can and Gustavsson is strong in net tonight.

Score four more tonight and the Wings should head to Philadelphia for their game Tuesday night on a three game winning streak.

It's a live blog bitches...

Not a great first but not horrible either.

Would love to see Homer work with Sheehan on front of net presence.

Didn’t see the same kind of intensity and grit in the first period that the Wings had been showing lately.  Not a horrible period as cal mentioned, but pretty forgettable.

I posted this yesreday, somewhere.  Being able to see the future is a curse, but I have learned to live with it.

Just a dismal thought last night in the middle of euphoria of a Wings win, I wouldn’t be surprised if Zetterberg’s career comes to a sudden end sometime, between seasons, when on LTIR, I don’t know. Z missed 5:00 of the first (i think) period, he tried stretching out his back during commercial but it didnt’ work, he had to go down to the locker room to get it worked on. Yet he came back out to dominate the game on both ends of the ice.

We really need to appreciate the effort he puts out there every night. Hopefully whatever back problem he has can be ameliorated with treatment or rest, and is not something structural that will make it impossible to work through.

If it (intensity and grit) doesn’t improve you can rack up a third straight loss to Florida.

There are six teams within one point of playoff position number eight. We need these two points.

Check that chalkboard in the hallway, boys.

Yeah I know.  I was thinking of that one time in my flat in Kuwait when I had two naked female American schoolteachers in the room at once and ended up not scoring with either of them.

19+ RW. Z does lead this team by example like a previous captain we all know and love. Hopefully he will get a rest during the Olympics. Oh wait. He is the captain there also.

My suggestion for the upcoming Olympic Games. I suggest mr. Holland invite all wings over to his house for a pre Olympic ” party” and then lock EVERYONE in his basement for 2 weeks until the games are over!

Pardons my French, but F*##* the Olympics!I could care less if Canada, USA, Russia, Sweden, or F****** Belarus wins the gold silver or bronze. The Cold War is over.
