It’s A Perfect Human Kind Of Day

Paul here in for IwoCPO who told me he probably would not have internet access until Monday.

The Wings face the Sharks today, who are in the midst of a nine game road trip, (they are 1-2-1 so far) and won’t be back home until February 28th.

We do know San Jose has had Detroit’s number lately and the Wings sure want to get that fixed before the playofffs start.

I look for a high scoring game and have a gut feeling Detroit comes out on top.

Detroit will depend on Lidstrom today for their 23 (2+3=5 or TPH) consecutive home win.

It’s a Live Blog, bit****.

Hows does Stuie end up in the net behind the play?

Goaltender interference. Wings will be short handed.

Makes it easier for the Wings.  We know live boards better than anyone else in the league.

Kindl’s compete level is not high enough right now.

Kindl uncharacteristically flustered.

Wings characteristically on their heels again.

Jesus, I dunno if he’s gassed, but Kindl can’t win a board battle to save his life lately. And he seemed really tentative in his own zone there, almost like he was unsure of what to do.

At least it’s better than being on our knees.

Burns again with the after whistle message sending again.  Must room with Thorton on the road.

DET needs to think about playing in the other end of the rink for a while.  The PP should help that - maybe.

Beert comes in.  Staring at every one.  Chewing on his mouthguard made of flesh.

Waaaay too soft on the puck.  It almost cost them.

Too often gets really discombobulated by forecheck.

You were saying about PP faceoffs, West?

[sigh]

Inability to win faceoffs on the PP.  An ongoing problem.

Another fizzled PP.  The wings appear to be merely weathering the storm at this point.

OMG.  Wings PP fuching sucks.

Walkom still fuching over the Wings.

And BTW, does our PP have any other moves than “shot from the point?” I swear when goals like Mule’s from a couple games ago happen, it’s by accident.

God needs to learn how to finish, he’d have 20+ goals already.
