Kings And Wings Again

It's all on Jimmy again tonight.

Scoring has been a huge issue of late and until some of the injured return, it is going to stay that way.

So, it's all about Howard again.

Also expect the Kings to be even more physical this time around especially since the power-play of the Wings has not been good of late.

It's still called a live blog bitches, bring it on.

Yes, unless he got ran over by the Zamboni after warm-ups. And you know as well as I do this year, the chances are 50-50 he did.

Sauce has big-time jet lag.  Says he’s gonna do his best and get help from his buddies on the ice.

The other day I was watching a game and I saw John Madden, who was an assistant coach.  I watched him play at Michigan.  That’s when getting older really smacks you in the face.  Guys you watched as 19 year olds play in college, then get drafted, then play their whole careers, and then are coaches.

Posted by HockeyinHD on 01/18/14 at 03:31 PM ET

Yeah, and who was the captain, #10 i think, Holton?, Holden?  No, but that’s kinda close.

That 96-98 era put a lot of guys into professional hockey.  not all made the nhl but that had loads of talent.

M would have really stacked teams now if guys would stay around for 4 years.  Anymore 40-50% of M’s hockey team are freshman.

HeYOHHHH!  Evenin’ Bitches !!

I may wait until after the M basketball game to start watching.

Somehow i’ve been impressed with much of the effort the last week, but look at the standings and not in recent memory have we so desperately needed 2 points or look like we are falling out of playoff contention.

35 more games, time to recover if we get healthy and a consistent line up.

LGRW.

1st of 5 at home. 10 points on the line. We need 9 points, imo.

Little room for mistakes.

Posted by RWBill from the open bar on The Hasek. on 01/18/14 at 07:01 PM ET

Yep. It’s the recruiting dilemma.  You hurt yourself if you recruit players who are too good. Look at Jacob Trouba. Won best defenseman at the WJC last season, so left Michigan after his freshman year and immediately became a starter for Winnipeg in the NHL.

I know it’s been a few years since the league allowed faceoffs at center ice for things other than goals or starts of periods, but every time there is a faceoff there I wonder ‘who just scored?’

I like how they are playing so far.  But I did the past two games as well, and they lost both of those 1-0.  Need goals!!!
