So Far 4 In 2, Why Not 6 in 3?

Yes, the Wings have won their first two games of their western Canada road tour and play the final game tonight in Edmonton before taking a detour through Phoenix on Monday before returning to Detroit for a Wednesday game against these same Oilers.

Before this goes an futher, Paul here, assuming IwoCPO is still without web access. (If he does appear before the puck drops, well, you know what to do.)

You know the Oilers plan to pepper Conklin with shots so the first ten minutes of he game are important for the Wings to stick to their game plan.

Tight defense, take advantage of mistakes by the Oilers and head to Phoenix with a win, any way they can.

6 in 3 could turn in to 8 in 4, so let’s make sure the Wings have that chance.

It’s a Live Blog bit****!

Dude.  We’re not pharmacists.  All this advanced math strains the brains.

Took me a moment to figure out what Paul meant, that’s what I get for drinking early.

Is that an opinion, or science?

Sounds like opinionated science to me.

Thanks, Paul. 

Exciting hockey game going on in Ann Arbor, keeping me awake for the Wings’ game.  Michigan up 2-0 on Miami Ohio after two.  It’s wonderful to see some college hockey on TV way down here in Flor-i-duh.  Saw last night’s game also.  Very physical, very chippy, great hockey.

Wings need to slap those young Oilers around tonight.  Put ‘em back in their place.

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

In science, “fact” can only mean “confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.” I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.

In other words, it’s a fact.

Here’s hoping we can keep Gagner to under, say, 7 points.

don’t care how many points he gets, as long he ends the day as a minus player for the game.

i think that’s what i mean. feeling a little light headed today, high temperature of 46 today has me all heated up. not usta all this warm weather in the winter time. makes it hard to regulate the wood stove. at least there was a chance to air ouut the house. had the windows open, thought the, rodant (ruby the galactic gumshoe reference) in pennsylvania predicted six more weeks of winter.

game on bitches. even if the rink has melted.

lgrw!

R. Nugent-Hopkins is on my fantasy team, and I have him benched. I will not benefit in any way from anyone throwing pucks on the Wings net.
