Positive Takeaways

The Wings are back at home which means a normal start time for most of us. The West Coast trips are tougher to stay up and watch for a few of the older members of the 19, but, we hang right in there and hold our own. There are definitely some positive takeaways from this short trip out West. The Wings didn't fall apart and crumble when they were down by a goal. They stuck to it, fought back, and, managed to salvage four points out of a possible six. The new additions to the lineup Fabbri, and Perlini are looking like smart moves, Athanasiou is getting his game back in order, and Hirose notched his first goal of the season after sitting out a few games. Dare I say McIlrath is having a positive impact?

To be sure, we're not talking Playoffs here, just some watchable Hockey from our favorite team. For the 19 it's still all about having fun.

Starting on time again - down one right off the bat.

They really do need to get rid of the replay on that.

Not sure why that took so long.  Toronto trying to find a way to screw the Wings?

Buenas noches, cabrones !
Some interesting goal nullifications already in the first period.  Bertuzzi got too eager, can’t fault a guy for hustling but geez, you’re already still, just wait a split second longer.  Oh well we’re all knotted up.

Thanks for the opening Kate and thanks everyone for showing up and contributing.

Let a whole bunch of crap go, then finally decide to call something on Detroit again.  I don’t know about the refs.  I’m not questioning this particular call being a penalty, because I thought it was interference in real time, but why the 3 to 1 penalty disparity?

15. The Czech Miracle of Insanity
Dominik Hasek is insane. I’d call him sociopathic if I really knew what that meant.  Kind of an easy term to toss around, and it’s fun to say.  Challenging for a child so feel free to use it as a Phonics learning tool.  Give me full credit please.  Anyway, Hasek’s a crazy bastard and he played out of his foggy mind in the ‘07 playoffs. He returned in ‘08 and prompted a grass-roots attempt on my part to ignite a goalie controversy that never happened.  I’ll never forgive him for not going absolutly batshit nuts in the media.  Still, he is our Czech Miracle of Insanity….“The Miracle” for short.
