Do Not Be Ashamed…It’s Happened To Bankers, Lawyers, Cops and Happy Czech Oompa Loompas

I worked Seger and our Happy Hudler into the same post title, and talked about hookers without even having "hookers" as a phrase that will catch the spammers.  Of course, the ads here on KK should be interesting for a few days.

I digress. As usual.  Hey guess what Ryan Getzlaf's faceoff stats are through four games?

He's taken 92 faceoffs and won 0.

That's a lie but it's an educated lie.

The Wings have owned him.  Datsyuk has owned him.  Zetterberg: owned him. Andersson: owned him.  Gilchrist: owned him. 

By and large, he's done nothing.  By and larger, Z and our Russian Prince have been amazing.  Tough, tireless, terrific..just like Mitch would say (our delicate genius).  Corey Perry?

That little dumpster diver hasn't done dick. 

Two ways to look at that: Wings are dominating their best players, but still tied 2-2.  Or, Wings have held them down and that can't last for long. 

Either way, it's a good reason to just start pounding warm PBR right now.

Gary's starting this game at 8 on the West Coast. (NEVERMIND IT'S 7, I THOUGHT IT WAS 8.  SHIT.) Seriously, that's late even for those of us ON the West Coast.  You suckers have to stay up until at least 2. And you will. Every single one of you.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  Take us to 6. Get us back to the Joe with a chance to clinch in front of that madhhouse.

That’s nice, GaryAss in the house.  It would be nice for the Wings to ruin his night.

In case you guys think this “every game going OT” thing is bad but only an NHL thing, it’s not.  I know in the ECHL playoffs the Eastern CF have gone to OT every single game so far, and the two teams have had 7 or 8 OT games each thus far.  AHL playoffs have had their share of them too.

In a tight checking physical game, I’d settle for a 29 yr old Shanahan, even though I hate his guts now

It’s too bad Big E and Kronner can’t play every shift on D. The rest of the D is a rollercoaster ride. Tough game to be a D really, so much pressure by both teams…

Anaheim is in love with the “Flip it up and into the O-zone” pass.  I’ve never seen it used so often.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Datsyuk, but Sergei was a goal scoring beast and I would definitely want him at 29 years old in this situation over Dats.

I bet right now someone on an Anaheim blog is going “Man, Detroit does nothing but spin with the puck”...

Holy shizzle.  We had a great opening 5 or 10 minutes in that period and Ducks hardly had it in our zone.  then it changed around, glad to get through a couple of those rushes still tied.

OT again.  This can’t be good for anyone.
