Happiness Please. Give Us Some.

To type all the negatives about this team at such a late stage of Season #12 would take too long and just too much energy than I’m willing to give.  Usually, in mid-March, I’m pleading the dwarf commissioner to just let the playoffs start.  Now?

Not so much.

St. James

Holland tells Free Press that Darren Helm has second degree MCL sprain, will miss 4-6 weeks

That’s disgusting.

But good news. Oh, we’ve got a little…

 

Nicklas Lidstrom, who will miss his 10th consecutive game Monday against the Capitals because of a deep ankle bruise, took part in the morning skate.

After a weekend of staying off the ice, Lidstrom felt much better than he did the last time he tried skating — the middle of last week.

“It felt better,” said Lidstrom, who added the swelling had gone down and X-rays taken Friday still showed nothing more than a bruise. “I’m still calling it day-to-day (for a return to games) and hoping it gets better every day.

That’s Teddy Kulfan, if you’re wondering. By now, though, you’ve seen it all over the place.  Take it easy. Rest up.  Just get us that infernal fourth seed, and claiming that as our main goal on 19 March is also disgusting. But, it is..you know, what it is.

Hey, here’s the weather in the tropical Arabian Sea today.  A little dusty.

Alright, I take it back, Homer did shove Green into Holtby. A penalty is a bit much though I think.

It’s getting harder and harder to defend this team when they play like they have for the past… whatever.  They make every team they play look like world-beaters.  I’m a Wingaholic but these a**hats are making me want to go hang my head in disgrace.

If the Caps score on this PP, Imma just pretend it is a west coast game, and go to bed.

Yes Holmstrom pushed him….but seriously, if that’s all the push it takes to throw a defensman into the goalie for interference how is there now a dozen calls a game?

You really had to hit the H and A keys enough times to make us scroll? You should probably seek professional help.

Or amateur, if you’re ever in the area.

The Wings have six goals in their last four games (including this one) after surrendering fourteen…. THEN they get angry.

PK of Death earning their title tonight.  The Caps PK was ice cold coming in.  Detroit is becoming a cure-all for every team they play.

Aaaaaand 3 guys prone on the ice down 3-0. This team needs a good fight even if it is with each other. The caps are btb in less than 24 hours inexcusable.
