GDT - Game 35: Red Wings (17-12-5) host ‘Hawks (25-5-3) 12:30

Yesterday was the Danny Dekeyser love fest (don't trunaround - one of the other 19 made that pithy comment), today the league leaging 'Hawks are in town for an Eddie Icepatch matinee.

Detroyet have dropped to 7th in the POS, 3 pts better than STL.  Mule and Willam Tell are supposed to play today - I guess that is a good bit of news.

Gordie is 85 today, Happy Birthday Mr. Hockey.  Happy Easter.

I think the Wings are having a special pregame for Mr. Hockey.  If they do, can one of you’se guys please record that?  My local NBC affiliate won’t carry the game till 13:00. 

No LB for me, the clan is in town for Easter.  Go Wings.

Gordie Howe is 85 today. Paul posted a video on the main page. It still amazes me, all the things Howe accomplished. He was quite the physical specimen back in the old days. A natural, one of a kind.


We are lucky that the greatest player to ever play the game is a Red Wing.

Thanks OKie.

Bitches.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Thanks, Okie!

Mr. Hockey and the Easter Bunny!  If only Eddie IcePatch would go on injured
reserve…

William Tell, eh?  Oh my…

Just win, Red Wings, for the love of Mr. Hockey, just WIN!

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

If Dekeyser’s sweater isn’t hoisted to the rafters at the conclusion of today’s game, it will have been another spectacular fail on Holland’s part.

Yeah, I know, I need to let this go, and move on.

I just can’t.

Happy Easter to the 19.

And a Happy Birthday to Mr. Howe.

Hossa and Sharp are not playing today.  Lucky for them.

Well, if there’s a ref who can actually ruin a festive mood, it’s LaRue.  Damn…
