Do You Deserve This Dynasty?

Mike Milbury said before Game 6 that the Wings were professional closers, that few teams had the ability to finish a series like Detroit. 

He either lied or he’s just simple.  Three straight games with a chance to slice a jugular.  Three straight episodes of disgust.

If the Wings want this dynasty, they win tonite. 

If they are desperate instead of self-righteous, they win. 

If they are quietly contemplating another wasted opportunity and feeling bile start to creep, they win. 

And if they lose?  To this team?  Then they don’t deserve your stress.  Not this year. 

Drink up if you have to.  Game 7s suck ass and we know that better than anyone.  Here’s hoping the trend stops now.

Yeah ,I know it’s bunghole move to repost yourself from a previous thread, but I’m doing it anyway. Cuz that’s all I got. And it’s Game 7.

oh shit, oh shit, oh shit…..I was just standing outside watching a beautiful full moon emerge from behind the clouds with my wife, just in from a 7 day business trip, and I thought….....

ATTENTION STATS GUYS: What is the Wings record on Game 7, when there is a full moon?? I wasn’t nervous a bit, then I saw that full moon, and thought of all the Fauxed up shit that happens under a full moon (ask the cops, ask the hospital emergency room), and I lost it, (just a widdle bit).

Posted by dougie on 04/27/10 at 08:05 PM ET

Damn, can’t believe I reposted myself back to the original thread. That’s a retarded bunghole move. Watch out, I’m on a frickin roll, bitches

Puck drops, I’m outta here….no distractions..

Al long as we are re-posting….

Bryzgalov is hot.
Told my brother on Friday that the key to beating a hot goaltender….
may look like getting him moving side to side,
but it is backhands.

Think back to what won for us Friday, and then think of yesterday’s performance.
I already cleared it from my DVR, so I can’t check, but I remember a distinct absence of backhands.

Bryzgalov is hot, Nabakov, and Luongo are not….but they get a few extra days to work on their game.

Posted by HockeyTownTodd from A. K. A. NostraGrampus on 04/26/10 at 01:08 PM ET

And

Awakened several times with nightmares of ex-wings….
Tippet is too smart to sit Lang or Schneider…

Do first thoughts before coffee count…?
Backhands
and
Shorties
and
The best officiated game so far ... in the playoffs.

Is anyone still counting Tuesdays?
