Every One Of You Needs To Skip This Live Blog, Because The “Streak” Ends Tonite

Don’t get all sad on me now.  It had to end some time.  You didn’t really expect the Wings to win every remaining home game on their schedule, did you?  That’s just crazy talk.  And there isn’t a single redolent one of you who doesn’t know precisely what I’m talking about.  This thing ends tonite.

Kulfan

The Blue Jackets are the worst team in the league with their 13-28-5 (31 points) record…They have the worst goal differential in the league (minus-41), allowing 152 goals while scoring 110. …The lone bright spot, as usual, is RW Rick Nash (16 goals, 16 assists).

Go on Rick.  Scoring when it matters the least.  Attababy.

So count it. Nash will be a monster and will register more shots shorthanded than the Wings will on the power play.

Steve Mason will be incredible and we’ll remember the days we wished he was our baby boy instead of Tiberius.  We’ll chuckle at that, though, because there isn’t a goalie in hockey I’d trade for F’ing Howard now or ever, ever.

The Wings will outshoot the BJs by a factor of 3-1 and will still lose by two goals.

Someone will explain to me the whole pencil joke from the other night and I still won’t understand it.

The Wings will lose this game because “trap” doesn’t even define it.  It’s a pit of quicksand mixed with baby shit, Ten High whiskey, vomitus and baby oil sweated off Gary Bettman’s back. 

So yes, we’ll live blog it.  And we’ll be bitches while we do.  It’s just important that reality rule the evening.  Because there is no chance in holy hell we’re winning this thing.

There.  That do the trick?

Well, sad that it took a SO to beat the cellar dwelling Jackets.  But at this point 2 points is 2 points.

Yup.  As I said in one of George’s postings, I’m not very good in celebrating a win when it goes to a shootout. 

It’s a relief more than anything else.

Reminds me of a song and a verse from the Dropkick Murphys.

One night at the pub a girl caught his eye big as a house,
just the right size the broad was enormous,
stacked to the hilt spicy soon noticed a bulge in his kilt
the piper delivered his best pick-up line thought to himself,
“this beast is all mine” the portly young lady could stand for no more
grabbed his cojones and went for the door

The Spicy McHaggis Jig.

I will tell you the problem is most severe when using Firefox.  Chrome and IE seem to be quicker and again, we are trying to fix this problem and quickly too.

Posted by Paul from Motown Area on 01/21/12 at 06:30 PM ET

I didn’t have any significant problems with Safari’s uploading of comments to the site.  It had about the same rate of upload as Chrome.  I haven’t been on this site using IE nor Firefox for several years now so I’m only saying that Safari and Chrome are about equal in the upload rate.

But I would still continue to use Chrome as my standard/default browser.

Two interesting things I see there.

1 - How the HELL is Florida leading their division with a -13 goal differential?

2 - Wings and Nordilanche are the only teams to not lose in the shootout yet this year.  Wings 5-0   Nords 7-0

Avs fan here…... just wanted to chime in on something you all already knew…..  Hank did absolutely nothing wrong on the Nikitin hit.    That was a seriously eff’d up call.

Yeah, thanks for the note. It will be interesting to see what Shanahan says.  It most likely will be, “Why am I looking at this? 5 minutes and a game misconduct, really?”
