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.

We survived Jimmy’s worst period in a while !!

We were on our heels that 3rd period but Jimmy should have stopped probably 3 of their goals.

Never mind, we drew even going home now!

NBC not only sounded dejected, they cut away almost immediately.

HAHAHAHAHA!  Wally to Nike.  Wow.  Just wow.

Then they get to the studio and they don’t say a word about it and just go into highlights from the other games.

I’ll never not have a burning crush @ the start of OT again!  I also shaved my playoff beard tonight before the game.

Indeed.  That is all that matters.  Both teams are working their asses off.  Take every win as it comes.

Mick just hit the nail on the head with Howard:  bash him all you want, but if he doesn’t play the first two periods like he did, DET’s not up like that to begin with.

I just turned on the telly in the hotel room and Niquil scores. In Charleston on anniversary weekend with the missus. Looks like I missed a good game for 41 minutes and a bad one for the other 19. Will read what you juviniles wrote later.
Glad to be tied 1-1 coming back to the Joe. Have a good night bitches.

I can’t believe the Red Wings actually won that soon into OT.  We never do that in the playoffs.  So relieved.

Had Pavel been able to elevate in the last minute we would have won in regulation.

So what’s the verdict on Bertuzzi?  My feeling was he was basically a non-factor…

All these fresh ice pp’s. I wonder if refs were instructed to kick the reffing up a notch when under 2 mins. Then it makes sense

Hiller would’ve gotten preggers and we’d see Fasth next game for sure.  We still might.

Not sure. He played, we won. Maybe the veteran presence. Or the fear factor wink
