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!

That was a horrible non-call, ref. Was Oates propositioning you for favors during the last game or something?

Yeah yeah I keep hearing Babs is the best coach in the universe, and still I keep seeing this team walk out on the ice completely unready to play. there is a disconnect there somewhere.

What’s with all the clutching and grabbing?  It’s going to be a long game if the refs don’t call it.

Ugh, looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue. How the hell can they not call that blatant trip. Shit, if the NBC crew noticed it, it had to be blatant.

On a better note, the 14lbs of pork shoulder I put in the smoker last night is looking good.

“We got a penalty from the forecheck”?  Pretty sure that penalty was in the o-zone for Detroit, Oates.

Power play. Do something with it, guys, instead of playing a merry-go-round with passing.

What a pile of dead weight that Nyquist kid is.  Tick-tock should throw his name around.  Maybe we could get a bag of pucks for him.  Maybe.

You and D are welcome to come; dinner is served at halftime. I think we’re expecting 25 and there will be more than enough food. The wife just put the scratch made corn bread in the oven and I still have to make a couple of BBQ sauces.

Thanks for the invite.  We’re having a few people over also so I’ll be busy here.  A win sure would go a long way towards making it a better party.
