The Blues Are Back In Town

First off, I could use whatever you folks are drinking tonight.

One of each would be just fine, just overnight it!

It feels like ages ago since we faced the Blues and things have changed.

The Wings are barely treading water while the Blues have grown up to become a team to deal with this season.

But none of this matters tonight and all we can ask of this winged-wheel team is keep delivering the effort.

Helm should help, but once again, it is all on Jimmy.

Deal with those cross-ice passes the Blues like to make and maybe, just maybe, we can start this stretch of home games at 2-0.

It's a live blog bitches and keep in my mind when watching the game on how much IwoCPO hated this team!

I don’t know if Helm will have any thing left for the rest of the night but that was a heck of a shift just before the Red Wings PowerPlay.

So the team has finally figured out they’re out too much talent to play the usual skill game 5x5. Why the hell has that not translated to the power play?

Backes as a screen worked because he didn’t move.  Bert as a screen didn’t work because he was out of place when Kronner went for the one timer, which Halak saw as clear as day.

Geebus The blues player was on his knees but still got the puck away from the wings and kept it in resulting in the onsuing power play.  Helm is a bit rusty of course
