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 love how Smith deked all the way in and ran out of options into the corner.

Can someone please tell Smith to fire the puck for a deflection instead of directly at the net?

I also like how Smith didn’t once try to skate towards the middle of the ice, always stopping near the boards and trying from that crappy angle.

I also like Bertuzzi giving up the puck, and taking a penalty at the first hint of a scoring chance.

I also like everything else they’re doing that doesn’t suck.

Two plays that didn’t get deep on the PK- one by Smith, one by Quincey.

I know who MY defensive goats are this year.

It was pretty nice the last fifteen years or so living in ND and NM.  West coast games not too late….East coast games not too early.
