Go West…

... young (old) man (men), a large portion of whom will likely not be awake for this one.

So Khan(!) states, unequivocally, that Western Canuckistan has been kind to the Wings. In fact, he's so comfortable with the statement that you don't have to read any further on the page to find it - it's right there, in the opening sentence. Go ahead, look.

No, it's cool, I'll wait. See?

Well I'm glad he's confident, because I sure as Detroit am not; Vancouver's riding a 4-game winning streak, and the Wings... well, the Wings are doing almost the exact opposite of that going winless in their last 4. I mean, yeah, they've gotten points in 2 of those, but who's counting? Calgary (5-4-1) and WInnipeg (5-7-2) are only 2 points back of Detroit (albeit in the wrong Conference), and Edmonton - oh, Edmonton - is one of those teams that'll lull you into a false sense of security, and when you're least expec -- BAM!! Surprise buttsecks. No lube. No happy ending. Just shame.

But first thing's first: Time to take care of some Swedish twins. Why? Because Cousin Red is here, lingering head cold and all, filling in for The Master Chief... and it sure as shit looks like a Live Blog to me, bitches.

I don’t know how you LB’ers do it. I’m streaming the game on my machine, so there’s just no real estate to chat. I love reading the LBs during the intermissions.

I go split screen on the laptop. Its harder on the eyes shifting focus from the TV several ft away, then to the laptop and back constantly.

*#$%@& Smith.

I’ve gotta say, I’m very pleased and impressed with Kong over the last couple dozen games; for a guy coming straight outta college, he’s incredibly poised and skilled.

Better than some people whose names begin with “Brendan” or “Kyle,” and end with “Smith” or “Quincey.”

Posted by Trish from PalmBeachCntyFL on 10/31/13 at 12:38 AM ET

Yeah, it was a stretch I made a few games ago: Danny DeKeyser = DK = Donkey Kong = Kong.

I think they’re both 6’4, so going with either one is a good bet.

I don’t care what anybody says… this has been an excellent road game against a good team.  Consistency is the key… and the problem.  Well that and a few goals now and then.

Can’t argue with that….tho i’m sure someone will. Not the usual wings formula with a lot more banging and board work, but it’s been effective.

So close to getting a two-goal lead several times. Hope that does not come back to bite them. Less than three to go.
