Surprised

The Wings surprised a lot of fans with a win the other night staving off a thirteen game losing streak, but it's the Wings, so most of us are still somewhat sure of what to expect. On the other hand, winning does help to instill confidence in a team that are in some dire straits right now. Well, that and the fact that Mantha and Athanasiou will be back in the lineup. It sure would be nice to be surprised again......

I’d love to see a win, but I wish I could say I’m expecting one.

Please, make it two in a row? LGRW!

I once, long ago, worked with a redhead. She had green eyes. She was gorgeous.

Nice save Bernier. These canuck announcers wanted a penalty unwarranted of course.

Guy got slashed because he held the puck in his glove forever.  Crap call

Hmm that’s unusual… Montreal getting questionable pp at home??

The Habs player caught the puck and closed his hand and should’ve been called…

OK, so the slash was before the Hab player grabbed the puck….it was still crap.  Homecooking in Montreal, say it isn’t so.  rolleyes

Hello Reprobates !
Am caught up to live, more or less as much as my stream ever is.

I didn’t know Abdelkder was playing until I saw a Wing fall down sprawled out at center ice.

Glad for the first period lead, that Bertuzzi is a gamer.  Flat on the ice getting sticked in the back he just kept on fighting for the puck without asking any quarter.  I like that guy.

Sorry for your Army football team loss today RW. No. Not really.. tongue wink

...Bertuzzi ... I like that guy….

I concur RWBill..he’s been my favorite for a few seasons now. It will be a crime if he doesn’t have an ‘A’ on his sweater next season.

I’d give the A to Lil Bert and LGD now if I had my druthers.

The little I paid attention to the Academy teams I could see Navy was back at a high level again.  QB play is so critical in those type offenses.

I never really cared too much or identified with the ring-knockers from West Point, as I got a civilian commission through CMU we were sometimes subjected to the the academy talk whenever some of the bastards got together.  Some really quality individuals though mostly, smart and good character.

P.S. I always pull for Navy to beat Notre Dame, once in a while it happens.

I can’t help with the feeling that the ice continues to be tilted which will eventually lead to a resumption of losing.

The ring knockers I had the pleasure of knowing seemed to want to to be by the book hard asses. Most of the officers I knew after getting into the medical side we’re good joes. I saw one out of the hospital in Bethesda one day and he whispered “ if you salute me ,I’ll kick your ass”with a wink..  Good guy.
