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!

We should but Howard out. He was completely inattentive on the first goal, and he just does not get hit by pucks. He’s been putrid in this game.

I watched both UM v Wisconsin games this weekend and the Wolverines do puck support infinitely better than the Wings. And I’m not exaggerating.

You know how bad this season is? Ken said last game that Effin Q is one of only 2 Wings to play in every game this season. No team can survive having Effin Q as their iron man.

I wish Howard would stop over-thinking the game. All he has to do is let the puck hit him, according to Babcolland

I can’t wait for the intermission to be over. Sick of hearing these fuchs fellate the Caps as if they’re the best thing to hit NBC since the Cawks.

Just caught up with the LB.  Raising a mugful of Kona and a hangover to the LB, Boss.  Fighting it hard, but let’s do this.

Get angry, Wings.
