Murphy’s Law

Murphy's Law states if something can go wrong, it will. This is the season that it all went wrong. For a quarter century, 19 of us have been gearing up for the playoffs this time of year. Well, 2017 is going to be a lot different.

The Wings will not be making a post season appearance. We will not be boarding the Hasek and drinking ourselves into oblivion. What we will do however, is still show up as the true fans we are and watch the rest of this forgettable season. There are still some bright new players we can enjoy, (as long as they're not benched). We will loudly voice our displeasure at what we have been handed as fans, watching this tragedy of errors and miscues and some just plain bad hockey. Then, plan for next year.

Tonight iis an Original Six matchup so, let's make the most of it.

It's a Live Blog. Bitches!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

That was just blatant.  Kind of a stupid penalty to take early on a play that was going nowhere

Hope he wins a Cup this year. The Habs are my #2. Since I was a little kid when Uncle nicknamed me Belliveau and my sister Henri. He was a Habs fan and introduced me to hockey.

Got bowled over by a really bad stomach virus yesterday.  First time I’ve been laid up since 2008. Kicked my ass! Feeling much better tonight.

Typical Montreal home cooking penalty call.

Whose ankle will Weber break?

I know Detroit has a decently ranked PK, but I swear they allow opponents to spend way too much time in the zone.

Then again maybe it just seems like the WIngs’ opponents spend so much time in the offensive zone on the PP because Detroit spends so little time in the offensive zone on their PP’s.

With Jensens continued good play, you wonder what took them so long to give the kid a try ????

shut eye

Good question. I thought Jensen played well in pre season games over the years. It didn’t make sense he was never given a chance on the Red Wings.  grrr

i notice She might be struggling, in part, because whenever he sets up around the net, his mates ignore him.

Never mind shooting Tatar, just keep looking back.  Not sure why someone who’s been scoring a lot lately would be looking so hard to pass

nobody on this team wants to shoot, and i guarantee you 1 goal isn’t going to stand up

Jensen is fun to watch, but he needs to seriously hit the weight room this summer. i see a lot of players trying to push him around.

Didn’t you know, you can’t create good scoring opportunities by shooting, only by making extra passes.

In the future I will always remember this season as the season of grit and process….and most certainly dry heave every time I recall that.

Soft.  Much worse from both sides let go this period.

i think it’s just the disparity in skill showing itself as MTL turns up the heat

Miller with the Helmer esque hands.

How is it exactly that Miller got back in the lineup?  He was assigned to GR. Then he whined about wanting to be traded. Usually a ticket out on f town. But now we get to watch him bust plays all night long. Why?

Not to beat a dead horse, but not only has Sheahan not scored a goal this year…..I would be hard pressed to recall a critical faceoff he has won, or the shutdown of an opposing center at crucial time…..

He’s supposedly in the lineup because “6ft 200lb centers don’t grow on trees”..... but he certainly doesn’t play “big”..., so I’m perplexed to the love affair with this guy….

Sheehan scored a bunch of goals in the last month and a half of the season saving Kenny’s precious playoff streak. He gets rewarded with a shiny new generous contract ala Brian Bickel.
Sauce is next.
