Driven By A Mule

Paul here subbing for IwoCPO who emailed me earlier today, asking if I could post the live blog since he was about to lose web access.

So here I am, not dazzling you with my vanilla vocabulary but rather stating it is time to ride “The Mule”.

The Wings need a strong game from Franzen tonight and if so, everything else falls into place.

If not, someone unexpected will need to step up.

So enjoy this ‘late-nighter’ and you have my permission to take Friday off.

It’s a Live Blog bit****!

Yeah…I stupidly thought Kesler was a stud in the Olympics. He’s reaching Corey Perry levels of douche-iness.

Yup. 0-4

For all the goals he saves behind Jimmy I can’t be too mad at Stu. Not his fault.

LGRW!

Wings got away with a lot there, but not near as much as the crowd thought they did.

Jeebus, 58% of OT games go to a shootout? way way way too many.

Yeah, they haven’t been good.  Then again… this is the league that can explain a goal with “pfizzix”.

Wings seem to have gotten the better side of the officials tonight though, Tux.  Like Bent said though, not as much as the crowd thinks.

It sounds whiny to say it, but it’s like this all the time.  Havin a tough time earning back the benefit of the doubt.

Does Franzen ever want to go to the net again?

That’s the point exactly.  The ‘Nucks whine too much so they don’t get the benefit of the doubt.
