That Was Nice…Back To The West

It's been exciting, this three game stint against the East. Everything we expected. A little rougher, a little more tense. A couple of patsies and a lay-down against the Big, Bad Bruins.

Glad you liked it.  Because here comes the same old, same old...Gary's Coyotes.

We know. Shane Doan makes mean faces.

It's a Live Blog and I'm late so get started.

His continued presence in the line up makes me wonder if dementia hasn’t set in with Leland.

Maybe it’s the booze talking, but damn, the Wings look sloppy as hell.

Not sure if it’s more personnel-related or utilization of said personnel, but the point stands.

Meanwhile Justin Verlander’s game face appears to be frightening the shit out of Oakland hitters.

That magnificent, arrogant bastard.  Glad he’s on our side.

Go Tigers!

It’s true. But it’s the reality of an Olympic year.

I’ll really be glad when the NHL/Olympics relationship is over.

If I were Ken Holland, I’d be rich.

Otherwise, I’d make the following changes:
Out - Samuelsson, Cleary, Smith, Quincey
In - Tatar, Nyquist, Lashoff, Almquist
