Back To Winslow

Aloha.  Thanks to Paul for filling in with the LBs and welcome to Red Menace who's assumed the title of GDT Czar.

Quite the coincidence the other night.  2 minutes and change into the game and one of scumbag Patty's henchmen drills Kronwall from behind.  Right off the hop, eh Twitchy? Incidental, I'm sure.  The only thing missing was Lemieux's 22 and the side boards.  

Aside from Kronwall's "minor concussion", all is looking up. Helm is skating in GR. Howard's back but the big boy did well in his absence.  Your boy Alfredsson is on fire, so is your long-time boy Pavel. Health is decent. Uncle Mike is happy. He's got plenty to tinker with and we have little to complain about...so far.

The East is...winnable.  

8 games in and I'm, naturally, highly optimistic.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Wow, that period quickly became frustrating as hell.

Anyone not named Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Alfredsson, or Howard has to be better. At least clear the god damn puck out of our zone…it’s so DUMB to watch them constantly try to ring it around the boards, over and over, and not get it out.

Looks like a pretty innocent shot for Smith to go down like he was shot

That did NOT go off Smith’s head like everyone is saying…. I don’t know why he’s down.

I wouldn’t want this goal to count against the Wings. But it still sucks.

So why is Smith still in the net? Isn’t he injured? That’s the reason for the no goal call. I call bullish!t.

Hope they can pull an even better 20 minutes out of nowhere in the third…

I was hoping to hear an explanation of the no-goal from Possum Smith’s flop.

Just weird.
