I NOW Consider Buffalo an Elite Team

I am not a superstitious person. But I do know facts when I see them, and here is some science:

This is a trap game.  Buffalo sucks but plays hard every night, from what I read and hear. I don't watch them, of course, because I don't watch hockey unless the Wings are involved. But I hear they're rambunctious.

The BJs are one point back, Toronto is two back. Washington 5 back.  Toronto has no chance because they're Toronto. The Caps are imploding because of their captain. The BJs have a shot at the 1 wild card and we want the 1 wild card.  We do.

And the Wings haven't lost since I've come back.  I take full credit. I deserve that credit and demand you give it to me.

How should you give it to me?

Whore style. 

It's a live blog, bitches.

Buffalo literally gave this game to the Wings and they didn’t want to take it.

If that were true, he’d have made the safe play to an open Alfie on the near boards… I miss TPH.

Even when they have good scoring chances, they’re weak on the puck.

WTF is wrong with them?

Only professionally.  I’m sure he’ll continue to suck in his spare time.

If nothing else, the Wings have been consistent. They played a solid twenty minutes Wednesday, and a solid twenty minutes tonight.

Reverse psychology wins again.

That said, the Wings did everything they could to give this f*cking game away.

Buffalo is going to come back and at least tie this game. Guaran-f*cking-teed.

if they play like they did in the 3rd Wednesday and the 1st tonight, they will beat the Habs. If they play like they did in the other periods both nights then the Habs will absolutely embarrass the Wings tomorrow.

WOW, backed right into that W after dominating the first period and a half (or so)...

... but, as you know, they don’t ask how, just how many.

Did they really just give first star to Van Massenhoven?

Show of class from the classiest organization in the game.
