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****.

This is looking ugly. They’re unable to come out of the zone with possession. Way too much time in our end.

No he didn’t.  Because the NHLs officials are professionals and at the top of their game and if a player HAD pushed a goalie who was trying to play the puck…it would have been a penalty right?

One scoring chance on the power play so far.  Nice save by Joey.  Only have to kill off another 1:25.

By the way, I’d rather lose 1-0 than go to the gimmick to decide a winner.  Losing 1-0… I made myself laugh hard at my belly at that one.

Kronwall with an amazingly accurate shot.  Assuming he meant to shoot that one into the goaltender instead of the huge area of open net staring him in the face.
