Mule, My Friend…It’s Time To Dream Like A Young Man

Okie...this morning.

The Flames defense is horrible, 3.38 GA/G, 0.68 5-5 F/A;  both marks second worst in the league.

Win or go home.

I had a boss a long time ago that had a nifty ditty he'd pull out only when the time was exactly right.  Most times he was sarcastic, demanding, unrelenting.  We all saw that and most of us dug it.  There were occasions, though, when that temper would flare and the highlight reel would start spinning.  One day, I witnessed him look up from his desk, slowly.  He paused for a minute and let that gaze burn into this kid standing in front of him.  And then he said, "You're lying to me.  That's irritating.  You want to play fuch-fuch with me?

Good. Let's play fuch-fuch."

And then the destruction began.  And it was a thing to behold.

It's time for the Wings to play a little fuch-fuch.  Teams like Calgary cannot be led along like the 1am sloth, soiled and barely coherent, waiting for a Blues fan to wheel her home...whore style.

Teams like Calgary must be efficiently and mercilessly dispatched of.  

Johan Franzen claims he's "pissed."  We've seen pissed before, Mule. We saw it against this very team.

 

 

Horrific.  Pierre was beside himself. Bobby Lang was so mad he forgot to check his hair in the glass.  Nick Lidstrom's pulse accelerated to 21 beats per minute. And the Mule?

He was pissed.  

Remember? (scroll to 2:14 mark)

 

 

That's pissed.  

You want to prove your pissed, Johan?  Show us that move again. Move your big ass across the slot and fire away. Holy Hell...when's the last time we saw that move?  

Get mad, big boy.  

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  6 to 16 and then on to 12.  Just. Get. In.

For the Wings, being in “playoff mode” has to mean treating one mistake like your only chance at the playoffs going bye bye.

They’ve looked pretty good so far, but lots of scoring chances haven’t worked out or been executed well and gone back the other way.

Just a minute ago, Kindl and his D partner were the only Wings on the ice because of a slow ice change. The Flames had cleared the zone and immediately sent two forecheckers back in, and Kindl had no options.

“Babcock disagrees” Im not sure two words have ever described a man so thoroughly, and one of the words is just his freakin name.
