Spokes In A Great Big Winged Wheel

I'm writing this at 0900 PST and the last thing George told me was that William Tell is in for the Strangler.  Note to Sobotka, reinforce the glass behind the nets...hell, ALL the glass.  A hail of rubber is headed your way.  

I've decided Justin Abdelkader is my huckleberry today.  I have a feeling, an inkling really.  Something tells me this young man is going to be a wrecking ball of a force tonite in front of hockey's greatest fan base, in hockey's greatest arena, with banners hanging down and fat men with red cheeks sputtering while aging Fins, balding assholes and a pansy named Perry get angrier and angrier.  

It's a big one.  A big fat one.  

Hope you enjoyed your Saturday, used your time wisely to prepare yourselves for what's to come.  Somewhere, Larry Murphy is incoherent.  Somewhere closer Darren Helm is wondering what he's done to baby Jesus.  I keep waiting for the game that he's just, without fanfare, announced as a starter.  Surprise me.  I dig it.  Fairy tales, I know.

It's a Live Blog, you bitches.  Grab your seats.  Unwrap the cheddar.  Hide the pets. Warn the neighbors.  Keep your whore mouths shut unless the situation is clearly deserving.  

LGRW. 15 to 12.

Please don’t tell me you didn’t know this was coming.  NHL Inc. is very predicatable

I guess I just didn’t expect it this early in the game. My bad!

Goodness. It is like I was never gone! Nausea, booze, questionable calls, penalty kills that give me ulcers, and 19 crazy Wings fans.

Would you rather sign Quincy for 5 years and be able to punch corey perry in the fuching face or trade quincy for a orange pylon?

The third period of Game 2 and the first period of this one are the worst two periods of hockey the Wings have played in two weeks.

Those were both horrible fuching calls.  I’m talkin’ NHL-worthy level of shittiness here.

There’s a blast from the past.  Next thing you know AndrewfromAA is going to be stumbling into the Hasek.

Weren’t you studying to be a lawyer?  Pharmacist perhaps?

I know. But, ugh, something about that first period pissed me off more than just about any period I’ve watched all year for some reason.

Wow… that period was played mostly by one team or the other shorthanded. Refs (too) quick on the whistle tonight! Not crazy about a game decided by special teams…
