Wings Meets Blue Jackets For The First Time As Eastern Conference ‘Rivals’

Heck, doesn't every game this season have the word 'rivals' in it when hyping the matchup?

Paul here using Bill's account so he receives the comment notifications and not me.  He is without computer access at this moment and asked me to put up the live blog for him.

It feels like old times, playing the Blue Jackets once again, but this time with both teams in the Eastern Conference.

Expect the team from down there to hit anyone wearing red and it will be up to the Wings to play their puck possession game.

The Blue Jackets have improved and will play a full sixty-minute game and will pressure the Wings every chance the have.

With that said...

...it's a live blog bi&*#@*!

They’re all too suicidal over the Tigers

Damn emo Tiger fans.

Hey I resemble that remark.

Not emo OR suicidal…but I did consider skipping this game and just going to bed while cutting myself and listening to some heavy death metal.

Trying to restore my laptop from a “rigged” image, and it’s not working… sigh.

Loving Toots’ effort so far, and Monster is holding up well so far.

Also, keep the ALF pics coming; that show was a major part of my childhood.

So, crush Fredo along the boards in obvious interference, no call

Franzen does nearly the same thing, penalty

He actually played aggressively at least twice last game.  I’m not making it up either.  Kate saw it too.

I guess there’ll have to be a roster casualty shortly, but I will take that if Helm can come back and is really healthy. It may end up being Tootoo, but only because dropping Samuelson will only reduce the cap by $100,000.

He is trying to make it very difficult for them to cut him.

Geebus, no one is left on the LB?

Still here, but had to switch the game from the TV to the laptop, so I can only check occasionally.

Dammit, but seemed like only a matter of time before they got a goal.  we haven’t done much since we scored our first.
