Huron’s Rolling, Superior’s Singing and The Musty Old Hall Is Chock Full

I don't have much.  Detroit's made two huge offseason signings over the last two years.  Our GM, aggressive because he knows a title is within reach and always looking for ways to make his owner and his fan base happy, has refused to acknowledge parity as an option.  Refused.

Detroit's GM is a swashbuckler.  He gobbles opportunities. He's fearless. And he's being rewarded...

Hunter's hitting .415 and Fielder? .439.

Yes, that GM.

And Kyle Quincey sits.

Too morose? Blame Ken Holland.  I'll be watching the Tigers until game time.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  LGRW.  Just get in (how's that sound, Tick Tock? Is that the refrain you like to hear from Wing fans with the playoffs two weeks away?).

what is Rinne complaining about?  I guess in his mind since the Wings scored, they must have done something wrong.  I was afraid the ref would actually agree.

Anticipating the words “the goal is under review” is almost a reflex action for Red Wing fans.

Textbook example of catching the goalie moving side to side.

DeKeyser does his best Lidstrom impersonation!

Smith continues to impress, negatively.  Bad blue line turnover almost in our net again.

Careful Stoney, it’s a trick.  Remember these are the same fuchers that tried to tell us the Trashville fans are “savvy”.
