It Is What It Is

There's not much to say about the high scoring affair the other night. It wasn't really all bad. Lots of goals were scored by the Wings so at least there's that. It just really sucks any time this team loses to the Cawks.  

Next up is Pittsburgh, and, it's another team that Wings fans everywhere dislike immensely. The Wings had better be up to the task at hand, or......who am I kidding? We're told it's a "process."

 It is what it is...

It's a Live Blog!

At least Machine Gun…Kelly (?)...won’t be there during the second intermission.

So we got that going for us, which is nice.

Evenin’ Bitches !

The streaking Pens have relegated the Caps to a Wild Card place, even though they’re playing a .625 104 pt pace.

Whoever the #8 team is pretty safe however, there’s an incredible .140 point spread between the #8 and #9 team (Detroyet).  I’ve never seen such a gap between playoff and bubble teams in the standings.

LOL I think all of my dozens of Peloton of Suck graphs are still on flickr.  Here’s one that shows as late as February there was a bunch of 7 teams forming a classic Peloton of Suck within 6 points.
