No Matter How Soft And Innocent Those Blue Eyes May Be? Don’t Trust Them or Her

Bullet Bob Seger was a young man in the early 70's. He, because he felt change would do him good, headed west.  It was there that his world crumbled when he put a lot of stock into some surface emotions.  Yes, I know.  Young, dumb and full of...enthusiasm.  She swindled him though.  She led him on and then crushed his soul.

But don't blame her. Oh no.  

She may have been a conniving skank, but BB fell for it. The power of the P, I tell you.  

So one morning Seger woke up alone and realized life would be better with a harder edge.

Which leads us to Game 2.  A harder edged Wing team, led by a psychopath, or at least complemented by one.  They posed little threat in Game 1, from what Gary would let me see.  One power play goal and minimal chances even strength.  And that's why we absolutely hate the playoffs.  Four straight games of dynamic offense.  Four straight games that brought hope into our lives, then one little episode to remind us that hope isn't a plan it's just a wish.

So the plan...the plan has to be harder. Edgier. Tougher. Meaner.  And as a result, more chances. More shooting. More stress for the Swiss kid.  How would you handle the pressure if a toothless serial killer was all up in your grill, his ass wagging, stick tormenting, heaving and rumbling.  

Todd Bertuzzi will not win this game for us, but he poses a threat. And we need threats.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

DeKeyser is RFA after his contract is up, so no he can’t leave for nothing.

Amazing to compare the interference called on Brunner when they were on the PP compared to what they’re letting go now.

All the Wings need is better play and passing out of their zone. That’s ONE thing will make a huge difference in their ability to play with this Ducks team.

Well, we’re playing with them now, so that one improvement will give them a chance to control the game.

Bonjour, 19. I just got home from roller hockey and band practice. Looks like the Wings started things off with a bang!
If anyone hasn’t posted it yet, THIS is the HD feed (NBCSN).

Oh Crites,  fuching NBC whining that the Wings are getting away with all that subtle interference again.  Next thing you know they will be saying the goals were the result of the puck hitting a patch of ice behind Hiller.
