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!

What do Jimmy Howard and Joe Paterno have in common?

One protected and covered up for a child molester and the other is an average goalie?

This is frustrating, but down as much talent as we are, it’s hard to be upset.

One’s a lousy puck handler, the other’s a lousy fuch handler.

If true, I will probably lose the delicious dinner I ate only a couple short hours ago.

I’ll wait for official word, though. Bad experiences with the bloggers of Bleacher Report.

It’s not from that meerkat pictured earlier MO?

The difference between Jimmah and Jopa?  One covers his team’s ass and the other doesn’t.

Well, Uncle Mike says we haven’t played hard enough.

I still see a lot of effort, but we do have to work harder to score *because* we’re down ...eight regulars. Again. Fuch.

Come on, Blabcock.  There are other plays to make where you don’t have to cross the red line, dump the puck deep, and then make your change.  W.T.F.
