Holy Hell The Hills Are Filled With Fire

Okie was on the money yesterday when he got the Aerosmith/Stress Train reference three minutes after the Live Blog posted.  He was right again this morning when he pointed out that three games in four days means all the glad could very well  be turned to sadness so very soon.   

We are in for so much trouble today.  The Defending Stanley Cup Champions are in town and the horror is too thick to type about.  The Wings are tired, so very tired.  Gary's made them play so much hockey in such a short period of time and now we get The Champs.  JFC. RSV. 

Winning this game is just too much to ask.  RWBill wants to know how much PK/PP energy our two leaders expended yesterday?

7:33 of special minutes for Datsyuk, 7:29 for Zetterman.  Tired, tired, tired.  

The Champions haven't played since Thursday.  It's too much to ask.  Too tall an order.  Our boys are exhausted, tuckered out, the strain is too much and the train is full of drunkards, worried and unclean.  The imperfect storm has finally arrived. God help us all.

Wings win 3-1.  Wally, White and...Stirs Shit With Massive Wooden Spoon.

When has Edzo ever been concerned about being fair to the Red Wings?

So can’t LA get penalties anymore?  Chintsy stuff is still being called against the wings.

Maybe I shouldn’t be suprised, but it doesn’t mean I need to like it.

Ah yes…you can’t have an NBC broadcast in Detroit without hearing all about “the lively boards at the Joe…”  blah blah blah

Oh yeah, the Wings are old too

JIMMAH!

Unfortunately, if it keeps going like this, I fear it is only a matter of time.

I have no words to describe Howard’s goaltending.  If the score were 6-2 I wouldn’t be findiing fault with him.

We need another goal from the stars or a freak bounce of some kind.

I would say something about flood gates but will shut whore mouth preemptively.

Can Datsyuk get 60:00 of ice time every game?

Holy crap, probably the best period of goaltending I have ever seen by a Red Wings goalie.

So many. Many, many point blank chances denied.


Wings need a shot of 5 hour energy.  Or crystal meth.

These back to back games really show how much we miss Helmer and his energy and speed. Cleary is not even close as a replacement. Why not utilize Eaves?  Or is he still getting into game shape?

I remember Jimmah having a game like this a few years ago in LA. It was a crossroads game for him if my failing memory is correct.
