Go West…

... young (old) man (men), a large portion of whom will likely not be awake for this one.

So Khan(!) states, unequivocally, that Western Canuckistan has been kind to the Wings. In fact, he's so comfortable with the statement that you don't have to read any further on the page to find it - it's right there, in the opening sentence. Go ahead, look.

No, it's cool, I'll wait. See?

Well I'm glad he's confident, because I sure as Detroit am not; Vancouver's riding a 4-game winning streak, and the Wings... well, the Wings are doing almost the exact opposite of that going winless in their last 4. I mean, yeah, they've gotten points in 2 of those, but who's counting? Calgary (5-4-1) and WInnipeg (5-7-2) are only 2 points back of Detroit (albeit in the wrong Conference), and Edmonton - oh, Edmonton - is one of those teams that'll lull you into a false sense of security, and when you're least expec -- BAM!! Surprise buttsecks. No lube. No happy ending. Just shame.

But first thing's first: Time to take care of some Swedish twins. Why? Because Cousin Red is here, lingering head cold and all, filling in for The Master Chief... and it sure as shit looks like a Live Blog to me, bitches.

Well, yeah. Two minutes.

Dafuq?

Is Lashoff injured or something? He hasn’t been on the ice any, if at all… I’ve seen WAY too much Quincey.

What the hell, man? The Wings can actually hang on to the puck in the offensive zone this game, but how many real good scoring chances have there been?

Eventually the Nucks get the puck and it’s just a goddamn funnel right to our net.

I’m going to guess that “pojkarna” isn’t a nice word, and the rest of that said “Congrats Kate on your Birthday!!” ?

I’d rather him just write a cookbook entitled How to serve Kyle Quincey and have KFQ just “disappear.”

I’ve polished off a bottle of wine.  It helps.  Wings played better this period and are still down.

Okay, just saw the replay on the Canucklehead’s goal… THE *#$%@& was KFQ doing?! 

“Sure, yeah, I’ll cover the guy that just passed the puck and also already has a guy covering him—THAT seems like a GREAT idea.”
