Thanks, RedM.  A mug-a Kona cawfee salute to the GDT.  Slainte.

Goaltender Jimmy Howard will make his ninth straight start.

For the first time in so long, I cringed.

OUR two points, Wings.  Get ‘em.

Really can’t do anything ‘bout TBL so that game doesn’t matter at all.  Every other game on that list, right on, Brother.

Great job as always, Red – especially the Injury Report. I guess all we can do is laugh at that stuff.

And speaking of laughing, it’s kind of hlarious to see that Franzen will be with Helm and Gus tonight. On any rush, they’ll be in the offensive zone and have three shots on goal before he ever gets there. They may actually have to tie ropes to him and haul his lazy ass up the ice before the night’s over.

And just super. Jimmy’s in goal again. That automatically increases the need for alcohol consumption by 50%.

I’m not sure how I’m supposed to increase by 50% something that’s already at 100%

At this point, OTC, it’s pretty much a crapshoot with Jimmy in net.  I’m actually more confident with Razer and he’s just a rookie.

You gotta give 110% this time of year.

Another big fail this afternoon by a member of the 2014 version of the Peloton of Suck.  Caps lose.

In Toronto tonight something has to give, either Detroit or Toronto will be given 2 points.  It’s the law.  Neither team may deserve it, but one of them will end up 2 points richer.

I have a feeling that Babs is riding Howard in hopes of Jimmy remembering how he’s capable of playing; that if the Wings make the playoffs they aren’t going anywhere if Jimmy’s not playing like he was at the end of last season.

I was thinking of us mere mortals. Not those of you who are on an alcohol IV drip every game. smile

Nice quotable from Babcock, courtesy HSJ:

“The year you’re in is the most challenging,” Babcock said. “It’s just like marriage. You don’t worry about the last one, you don’t worry about the next one, you worry about the one you’re in.

“It’s the same thing. You’ve got to execute.”
