How To Win A Game

Paul here for IwoCPO.

How this sound, instead of playing down 0-2, how about the Wings get a lead for a change?

Power play you say, I’d be happy with one pp goal and no shorties tonight.

Initiate some hitting, don’t wait to be hit.  Wings may be surprised to get a few turnovers from those hits.

Stop the cross-ice passes in the offensive zone, sure they look goo when they work, but far too often, the opposing team is prepared for that pass.

When bringing the puck into the offensive zone, how about trying to continue to skate instead of stopping at the half boards, a few strides in the zone.

Remember Detroit fans are watching at home, don’t make us go to bed at 11:30pm tonight, we want to stay up and watch a complete game.

When all else fails, depend on a parrot.

It’s a Live Blog bit****.

You guys remember the good ol’ days when the 3rd or 4th line on the ice meant…“oh well..guess we’ll just hold on to the puck for a couple minutes and then throw the studs back out there for some scoring chances”?

Call me the Gamewrecker.  Tuned in just in time for the second goal and vomited my way through the third goal against.  Will anyone on our team please start protecting J-Mac from the crease crashers?  Any-fuching-body?

Babblecock’s thoughts (predicted) in the intermission interview:

“We didn’t control the puck, they took the play to us.  We had some breakdowns in our own end.”

NO MORE EXCUSES.  FIX THIS SHITE.

That would require that someone gives a sh!t. I see very little evidence that anyone gives a sh!t

Happy birthday, ITDeuce.  Have a Jameson and Turpentine jug on the house, bitch.  Line up for the vomit bucket, the Ipecac Wings are the late night entertainment.

Chief, Jeff, ITDeuce, and all you military dogs, happy sails and happy trails bitches.  Make it home.  Everytime.
