Uh Oh…Hitch Is In Town And He’s Hungry

Oh for god's sake. This is too much.  Game after game, the hill gets steeper.  I'm serious this time. There is no way we're winnigng this one.  And there's no way I can even spell winning. The little streak was nice, but it ends tonite at the Joe.

Just as he was getting so very warm, like urine, Johan Franzen is hurt with a hip flexor.  We have no idea when Darren Helm will be back, or our precious serial killer. 

The bitter little baby brother Blues are angry. So very angry.

Nick Lidstrom will be there tonite, but he'll be in some slick-ass suit. 

Us?

We'll have nothing but blue balls.  Nick's there, but he's not giving it up. You know what I mean.

Oh and then there's this...Desperate Ken Hitchcock, starving and foaming, is starting a rookie. Some kid named Jake Allen.

He'll play the game of his life then we'll never hear from him again.

Injuries. Providence. Swedish Teases.

Wings win 4-2.  Goals from Home Keys, Zetterman, Wally and Datsyuk.

I'm at sea. I'll try and watch. If not?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

So cross checking is “A really good defensive play” according to olczyk?

the Wings had two guys back.  Abby played it perfectly.  Kronwall left the other Blues player alone.  WHY?!

So the power-play unit has to grind because of Mrs. Babcock. Okay.

That’s totally on Kronner.  What a boneheaded play.  Forget the open guy and collapse on the net.  I don’t get it.

Posted by PaulinMiamiBeach on 02/13/13 at 08:06 PM ET

If Brunner concedes the puck and gets in defensive position (rather than risking a lost puck battle) goal doesn’t happen.  IMO, most defensemen know better.

Abby played it perfectly - - went where Kronwall pointed him to cover.

Then - - Kronwall inexplicably leaves the guy he wants to cover all alone???

What the *#$%@&???

Disappointed by jimmy on that play. The announcers act like it was an amazing play but it was really just a failure on the dong to notice that the pass was the only viable option and readjust. Was a good shot tho, back to business boys.

Decline the penalty.

is it legal to only put 4 players on the ice when you’re on the PP?

Here’s hoping this one goes better than the last.
