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&*#@*!

Geebus yeah 2-3 minutes behind.

But the xbox - nhl gamecenter app feed is pretty good.  It has stuttered briefly twice, is a better quality picture than the nhl center ice feed, which are overwhelmingly standard definition.

How does it taste? I am not a drinker, but that sounds intriguing.

I don’t like much whiskey or whisky, so the maple finish does take off some of the harshness, but leave a little heavy sweetness, not too bad though.

True enough. But if he keeps playing like he has tonite, i’m ok with him sticking around. Really has had a good game.

They need to pick it up here—can’t spend the last five minutes of this game in your own zone.  Punching bags hardly ever win fights.

So Abby has been getting “Don’t pass it to the wide open guy next to the net” lessons from Franzen..
