GDT - Game 38: Red Wings (18-14-5) at Avalanche (12-20-4) 9:00

A horrible 2nd period at PHX, in which the Wings all appeared to drink the dumbass during the first intermission, earn DET a 4-2 loss against the Dogs.  The Wings dumbassery keeps them in 7th place in conference, but mired very near the bottom of the POS, with only 3 points seperating them from 12th.

In more ordinary times a game against the worst team in the league, that'd be the 12-20-4 'Dique, would encourage some confidence of a win. These aren't ordinary times, we are doomed.

Last I heard cats were disappearing all over the ITDeuce neighborhood as he tries to shake the game-wrecker mojo.

DET desperately need a win.  Don 't turn around (oh oh), Der Kommisar is in town tonight, and will be on the ice.

LGRW.

Babcock said DeKeyser, White and Quincey will play tomorrow. . .

Babcock didn't say who those three would replace. he said he thinks he'll start Howard tomorrow but will think about it.

MO, that was really funny.  Fortunately his teacher was open-minded and wasn’t looking for certain responses.

That’s hilarious because I was thinking of Joe Tex when I was looking at the other.

I saw that cheap dirty knee last night. It’s too bad someone has to lose a career or be paralyzed before this crap is taken out of the game. Chicken shit, chicken shit.

Great report! You should be proud your spawn has a mind of his and is not afraid to use it. Most educators would react much differently. The teacher must be a gem.

Wow.  That is a lot of good information, Jeff.  Thanks.  The Wings should win tonight.  Of course, the same could have been said 24 hours ago.
