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?).

There might have been more scoring chances in that 20 minutes than some of the last few games together. So that’s something.

Only the PKs cost them momentum…

If I didn’t know any better I’d think Strader and Engblom were the normal Nashville announcing crew.

Posted by Valek on 04/14/13 at 08:15 PM ET


I know. Hard to believe Strader once worked for Detroit .

Missed the first period but seeing some of the highlights…

Is there another team in the league that gets more shots blocked from 15 feet and in than the Wings? I don’t know if it’s not being hard on the puck or what, but I’ve never seen anything like it.  How do they get so many shots blocked so close to the net?

Don’t forget that double points weekend continues on Call of Duty Black Ops II on xbox live after the game.  There’s still time to level up much quicker.

Anisimov gets caught looking down at the Puck way too much and gets hammered a lot. He won’t last much longer in hockey if he keeps that up.

Second coming of Gretzky?  Never mind that—I think Strader and Engblom are totally focused on the first coming of Forsberg.  There’ll be plenty of time for a second, and maybe even a third coming, assuming Forsberg’s man enough.
