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.

I love how Babcock reacts to wins.  Deadpan, shaking the assistant’s hands and business as usual.

First minute of periods:  Wings 4-0.  Other 19: Ducks 4-1.  Let’s hope they’re 1900% better next game.

Might need some NyQuil to calm down from NyQuist.

I actually quite like Darryl Reagh (between the glass guy) he manages to stay mostly positive for both teams, but yeah, Forslund was probably throwing things around the booth in frustration at that goal.

With an excellent feed from Cleary in the corner, Wally made a Datsukian deke and pass.  Nike had the nose and we get the W with emphasis.  To the brink but not beyond.  An ulcer has just devoured my upper intestinal tract.
