Many Good Things Come From Nashville…

... unfortunately, I can't think of any right now.

I also can't think of anything really important or witty to put here (as usual), so let's just stick to the facts: The Prednecks are coming off a huge win against the Kings, and the Wings are basking in a come-from-ahead victory in South Beach. Last game saw Zetterman and Snapplecrater back in the lineup, and tonight we get to see God and King James make their returns. I'm not too worried about Helm keeping up...

... but Howard....

... well, let's just say my confidence is perched precariously on the brink. "Hope for the best, expect the worst," I always say. May be a crappy way to go through life, but it keeps the disappointments to a minimum.

Everyone's looking forward to January 1,  2014, and renewing the rivalry with Toronto in the Winter Classic - but first thing's first: Tonight, a dangerous team in the Nashville Predators... expect a hard-fought battle for two badly-needed points

Just win.

Let's remind Bubba why they should be thankful the Wings aren't in the West anymore, and send 2013 out with a banging Live Blog, Bitches.

Maybe the Cleary-Eaves in the pressbox decision was made on the basis of who is getting more face time on “24-7”?

earlier from Khan! -

Detroit Red Wings forward Daniel Cleary said it felt like he had broken candy dangling around in his mouth after being hit with the puck Saturday in Florida.

Expect, this wasn’t anything sweet, it was his teeth. Cleary lost 10 teeth on the play, which happened midway through the first period. He returned for a short shift near the end of the period, finished the game and will be ready to play tonight in Nashville.

“They were swimming around in my mouth, I could feel them,” Cleary said. “When I took out my mouth guard up top, I had more (teeth) sitting inside that.”

He added, “It’s kind of gross to talk about, but what are you going to do?”

Cleary has an 8 a.m. dentist appointment Tuesday. He anticipates it will take 90 minutes for some repair work. Then he’ll join his teammates at Michigan Stadium for a noon practice, in preparation for Wednesday’s Winter Classic against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

“My concern is the wind on my nerves,” Cleary said, referring to exposed nerves at the bottom of his mouth. It (stinks), but numerous people have lost teeth, what are you going to do?” Cleary said.

Which team pulls their goalie first?

Red Winger's avatar

Well, on a positive note,Ozzie is in the studio while Eliot is on the road with Ken. I know it’s because Ozzie is playing tomorrow, but they should keep it that way. Eliot is 100x better than Ozzie as a color guy
