Holy Hell The Hills Are Filled With Fire

Okie was on the money yesterday when he got the Aerosmith/Stress Train reference three minutes after the Live Blog posted.  He was right again this morning when he pointed out that three games in four days means all the glad could very well  be turned to sadness so very soon.   

We are in for so much trouble today.  The Defending Stanley Cup Champions are in town and the horror is too thick to type about.  The Wings are tired, so very tired.  Gary's made them play so much hockey in such a short period of time and now we get The Champs.  JFC. RSV. 

Winning this game is just too much to ask.  RWBill wants to know how much PK/PP energy our two leaders expended yesterday?

7:33 of special minutes for Datsyuk, 7:29 for Zetterman.  Tired, tired, tired.  

The Champions haven't played since Thursday.  It's too much to ask.  Too tall an order.  Our boys are exhausted, tuckered out, the strain is too much and the train is full of drunkards, worried and unclean.  The imperfect storm has finally arrived. God help us all.

Wings win 3-1.  Wally, White and...Stirs Shit With Massive Wooden Spoon.

DAMMIT!  I knew that was going to happen!  I even checked before I posted on the GDT and there was no LB thread yet.  As soon as I put this on the GDT the LB popped up.  So I’m going to repost myself, yet again, bitches.

Least expected stat:
Detroit leads St Louis with identical records due to head to head competition.  Who among us woke up on Jan 20 to think that was going to happen in 10 games?

I doubt Calquake will get back from Biker Breakfast at Neptune’s Net out in Ventura on the PCH in time for the game.

What am I talking about?  Calquake won’t roll out of bed by game time?  smile

I have no hope today. Having said that I had no hope Thursday or yesterday either so maybe I’m onto something.

LGRW!!

RedWings.nhl.com has the Wings projected lines:

Brunner - Zetterberg - Franzen
Cleary - Datsyuk - Filppula
Andersson - Abdelkader - Tatar
Miller - Emmerton - Tootoo

Kronwall - Lashoff
Ericsson - White
Turnstile - Kindl

Jimmy Howard

I have no clue if the Wings will show up, or not.

One of you bitches please post a link for a feed.  I’ll be missing the first 30 minutes of the game till the local NBC affiliate picks it up.

Thank you

Chief and Okie - many thanks!

I think low (or no) expectations is the way to go this season. 

I won’t be in the LB today.  I’m going to watch the first period, then tape the rest to watch later.  Going to check out a women’s lacrosse game at the local college.

Whatever team shows up today…

LET’S GO RED WINGS !!!!!

Wait a tic…Aerosmith re-did that?  My life has been thrown for a bit of a loop, Ms. Winger.  I need to think about that for a second.

Missed the LB Saturday. Was in Houghton looking at all the sculptures done by the Michigan Tech students. There was a campus wide party the night before, so some of the sculptures were slightly trashed, and the temperatures were 38 so snow/ice melt was to be seen everywhere. The ice bar and speaker stands were all made out of ice/snow. Must have been some party.

And since we were so close, and the wife had never been we went to the edge of the earth and drove to the end of U.S. 41 kinda neat seeing the road just end and a turn around on a U.S. highway.

Listened to the game on XM so it was all good. Now comes the second half of a back to back. Is it too much to hope for a win?

Good morning from the left coast.  Good to be back after a hiatus due to schedule conflicts.  A Detroit win today makes absolutely no sense, but there is a staggering list of things that make no sense to me.  Let’s do this.

Good morning all.

Train kept a rollin was a blues song from the 40s or 50s. I forget who did it originally. Almost all the best rock songs were originally blues songs.

Why is douche canoe talking about the cawks?

What you talkin aboot Willie?  I was a wee bit slow getting up this morn, mostly due to celebrating the better halfs B-Day last night.  I eschewed the ales for martinis and vino.  Woke up mostly intact today.
All I can say is: LGRW
