Priorities Set, Win In D.C. Then Start The Party

The Super Bowl festivities can wait until around 3:00pm or so today and a win against the Capitals would help us enjoy the game tonight.

No GDT today due to an early game plus 'Red" is probably still in bed, so instead we start the Live Blog a bit early.

Not much needs to be said about the game since the Wings faced the Capitals on Friday.

What is important today- get on the plane boys with two more points.

The Canucks are waiting in Detroit for the matchup tomorrow night so securing two more points today is key.

The only advice I have for the game is contain Ovechkin and keep an eye on Backstrom.

Jimmy needs to be good again and the defensive zone coverage cannot break down.

And stay out of the penalty box.  Washington can score in bunches if the door is left open, so keep it closed today.

Enjoy, get ready to party and it's a live blog bitches!

The penalty has expired, it’s a commercial break, but I still feel like we’re killing a penalty.

I’m sorry, but if anyone decides to buy a car because it has a built in vacuum cleaner they need to be taken out back and shot.

The outdoor ice was better in the LAK/Duhucks Stadium Series game and that was an outdoor temperature of over 75 deg F.
