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.

Great road game. Good offensive zone possession keeping Vancouver’s shots down. Good job by Jimmy however

My LB reputation is restored, and the Wings start the Western swing off on a good note.

See you crazy kids on Friday.

“The Red Wings improved to 10-4-2 in their past 16 games in Vancouver.”

Thanks for that statistic. That is phenomenal considering how good Vancouver has been the last several years.

That was a… road win.

I didn’t think it was a particularly GOOD or pretty one, but it was one.  VAN doesn’t seem to be a very good team, Luongo had to carry them plenty.  He let in Tatar’s softie but otherwise he was very solid.

Stephen Weiss is very good in both ends of the ice, in ways Filppula never was.  The points are going to come for him, and I don’t know that it’ll matter who he’s playing with.  Someone noted on Twitter that his play has improved since he took his shield off, and I believe Malik noted he still has a pinky brace on or something.

Tatar was very good.  I hope the point has gotten across that the Wings can’t afford to sit him anymore.

I’m at the point I just hate Brendan Smith.,  Hate him.  Dumb penalty after dumb penalty, even in the games where he’s not a defensive wreck.  He just never learns, period.

Was was Bert surly last night.  More surly in his coffee from now on, please.
