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.

60 full minutes. Well, the wings only needed 20 minutes and 10 seconds.

I realize I do not know crap about hockey. I figured we had an average team this year and then they just pull off 3 games like they are damn Stanley cup champions. I bow to the genius of Babs and Tick Tock.

What a steal by Jimmy today.

The NO BRAINER answer to “who starts in goal?” was Mrazek.

Thank 8 pound baby Jesus that Babcock was thinking.  Great coaching decision.

Big for keeping LA without any points too, and EDM.  Playoff race is going to be tight, shutting them out from points is big too in addition to getting four.

There is a Diaz on Montreal who is a D-man but I’m not sure it’s the same guy.

That’s a perfect copy of the Mike Legg goal against Minnesota in the NCAA tournament.  Holy crap that was 16 years ago?  That got Legg an ESPY nomination.

oh how wonderful the playoffs are going to be with the likelihood of playing teams like Anaheim, San Jose, and Vancouver.  better make sure Red Bird One is in tip top shape.

This tweet from Khan(!) is hilarious:

Wings’ Ericsson: “One of the linesmen thanked me for scoring because he said he had to go pee.”

Brunner leads the team with 6G (not bad for $1.35, eh?).  Hank and Pavel have 5, Wally and Mule have 3.

It seems like Abdelkader is going to ring one up or assist, he’s been so close and on the doorstep so often lately.

I think this is the link to the greatest call in sports history, ” The puck hits an ice patch and goes in.”  Damn the luck for Los Angeles!!  They dominated the game, never gave up, and worked so hard to finally earn the payoff and tie the game, only to be hit with this unbelievably bad luck!!  It hit an ice patch!  How in the Hell did THAT get there!!  Detroit should be fined for rigging their home field advantage by putting a patch of ice behind the visiting goalie.  That just is not fair.  Poor Los Angeles, damn all the luck.

No question.

I was just saying that to my daughter the other day. Fil is right on the verge, but just can’t get there.
