Wanted: One Win

Needed: One Win Badly.

Paul here for IwoCPO.

A victory, two points, a blowout or a nail-biter, just put that W in the column.

Canes are playing for pride and the Wings should start playing like the playoffs start tomorrow.

Get the power play fixed, stop the defensive turnovers and all of the sudden, you have a team again.

The winning needs to start now….

... because it is a Live Blog bit****.

Canes 4 game win streak ending last night, and they looked bad against Columbus. They are tired. They give up the most shots in the league, and the most goals. We have had 2 days off, and are as well rested as you can be, this time of the year. Despite the injuries, we have better talent on the ice tonight.

IT’S A TRAP.

Detroit has three consecutive very “winnable” games in a row. Contrary to what some people think, I feel that a 4th seed and as much home ice as possible is essential for the Wings to have any level of success come playoff time. Couple that with games against Nashville and Chicago and we’ll know soon enough if this squad has any intention of salvaging a season that has gone to shit the past three weeks.

It’s time for quite a few players to step the fu*k up. You’re Detroit Red Wings, goddammit. Play like you’ve got a pair and deserve to wear that winged wheel on your chests.

Murph sez the last game “resurrected Conklin’s NHL career”.

I won’t burden you with my Top Ten list of snide responses to that.

Evening, bitches, what are you drinking?

The pot liquor from the corned beef I cooked today, with a dash of hot sauce.
And some stuff in a Mason Jar.

I guess I should have anticipated being stuck with the Hurricanes feed , here in Raleigh. But I like John Forslund, so it will be tolerable.

That is exactly what is going on here.  Frustrating as all hell.  Can’t bear to watch SD though.  Hopefully the audio gets cleared up.

Punching Homer in the head is legal.  Nice to know some things never change.  I guess.

Puck bouncing around like a rubber ball in the Carolina crease—so naturally the whistle blows.  Zebras in top form I see.

I was going to predict a final score of Detroit 6, Carolina 0, but before I had a chance I was proven wrong.  Terribly, terribly wrong.

In honor of my extreme wrongnitude I give to you a new prediction:  Detroit 37, Carolina 1.

Well, at least #5 is back in the lineup.  Means my late night “sit down” with Beelzebub last night wasn’t for naught.  My mortal soul is a small price to pay.  Don’t thank me now.  Thank me in June.

DirecTV.  The HD video started up again, but SD hockey on an HD set is truly borderline unwatchable.  Really super grainy and very hard to follow the puck.  In those scrums, there is no chance of seeing it.
