Hey 19! Wake Up, It’s Noon, Time For A Game

I've heard rumors some of you enjoy a few adult beverages here and there, especially on the weekend, so this is my attempt to get you up and ready for puck drop at 12:37ish pm EDT.

Howard starts, Gustavsson's groin a problem so Mrazek backs-up.

I don't anticipate any changes to the lineup but since no morning skate today, we won't find out until just a few minutes before the game starts.

The Rangers look a little different since the Wings last played them, Martin St. Louis in, Ryan Callahan out.

Lundqvist in goal and the Rangers ar 6-3-1 in their last ten games.

Detroit is now 5 points behind the 3rd place Toronto Maple Leafs in the Atlantic Division but do have 2 games in-hand.

The Wings also trail the Tampa Bay Lightning, the first wild card team by 3 points but have played one less game than the Bolts.

Four teams are looking up at Detrot, all within 1-4 points behind the Wings.

So another can't afford to lose game will be played today.

Tighten up the defense boys, score some goals, leave Broadway with a win.

Simple!

Enjoy the live blog bitches.

So let me get this straight, obvious interference not called = good play, any other contact anywhere on the ice at any time = “subtle interference” by Detroit.

Could it be any clearer that this guy should not be allowed to work Red Wing games? 

I mean, holy fuching hell, next thing you know he’ll be bitching that a Detroit goal went in the net because it hit a patch of ice.  Oh wait…

Hey 19!

The same old NBC hockey coverage…just swap the BlackCawk gobbling for BlueCawk gobbling Wing haters.

Wings = “subtle legal interference.” Rangers = “an opportunity to sell that call.” Grrrr.

Second period coverage begins with, you guessed it, yet another rant about “legal interference”.

Seriously, this shit needs to stop.  It’s sad and pathetic.

Still with the subtle interference?  Nothing about the obvious blatant interference right before the Rags goal?  What worthless biased announcing.

So now the whole Red Wing team philosophy is to “cheat”.    The Wings are cheaters, that’s what the guys at NBC want you to know.

No shit.  This has gone way beyond annoying.  There are 32 teams in this league and every damn one of them engage in interfering with the flow of the game through the neutral zone every single game.  Why?  Because the NHL allows it.  To single out one team, not once, not occasionally, but over and over and over and over and over is just stupid, unimaginative and shows that someone pretty clearly has an agenda.

It’s time we all just shit-bomb NBC and say “enough” to this ass-clownery.

Quincey deserved the penalty for the cross-check to the back of the head in front of the net, but the one he got called for was crap.  St. Louis jumped up after getting hit.

“shoulda been a penalty on Lashoff there for a little deception”

LMAO.  Okay, WTF?  At a certain point the jackass just becomes a parody of himself.
