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.

On a positive note, the Red Wing power play is suddenly red hot.  Clicking at a nifty 100% rate over the past hour.

I’m all about moral victories tonight.  I think they’re like the third tie-breaker or something if I remember correctly.  Getting three goals in a game would be huge too.  I know, scoreboard says the other team has four, but hell man, a moral victory is a moral victory!

I think that might be the clorox talking.  The guy is a coach killer.

I’m beginning to wonder if that would be bad in the Wings case.

The Wings look a lot better, but I still see too much passing.

The way Holtby looked behind him it sure looked like Cleary scored again on that shot.

Here’s a chance for the power play to redeem itself for a month+ of ineptitude.

PP, let’s keep it just a 1 goal deficit.
