No Matter How Soft And Innocent Those Blue Eyes May Be? Don’t Trust Them or Her

Bullet Bob Seger was a young man in the early 70's. He, because he felt change would do him good, headed west.  It was there that his world crumbled when he put a lot of stock into some surface emotions.  Yes, I know.  Young, dumb and full of...enthusiasm.  She swindled him though.  She led him on and then crushed his soul.

But don't blame her. Oh no.  

She may have been a conniving skank, but BB fell for it. The power of the P, I tell you.  

So one morning Seger woke up alone and realized life would be better with a harder edge.

Which leads us to Game 2.  A harder edged Wing team, led by a psychopath, or at least complemented by one.  They posed little threat in Game 1, from what Gary would let me see.  One power play goal and minimal chances even strength.  And that's why we absolutely hate the playoffs.  Four straight games of dynamic offense.  Four straight games that brought hope into our lives, then one little episode to remind us that hope isn't a plan it's just a wish.

So the plan...the plan has to be harder. Edgier. Tougher. Meaner.  And as a result, more chances. More shooting. More stress for the Swiss kid.  How would you handle the pressure if a toothless serial killer was all up in your grill, his ass wagging, stick tormenting, heaving and rumbling.  

Todd Bertuzzi will not win this game for us, but he poses a threat. And we need threats.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Last time I was here at a playoff game, Xena the Warrior Princess (Lucy Lawless) sang the anthem and popped out of her top while singing. She didn’t realize why the crowd was cheering so loud until she got off the ice. Priceless.

Man, I remember watching that game on channel 50, and thinking, “did I see what I thought I saw?”

Mickey’s chuckling was all the confirmation I needed.

Speak for yourself.  Because I refuse to pay an extra 9 dollars a month for the “prime sports package” of Fox Sports West which I would watch maybe 10 times a year, no Wings/Ducks until the Rangers choke… er, I mean lose.

anybody watching the Caps/Rangers game and see the Rangers get screwed out of that goal?

how could they not tell the puck was in the net?  it lands on his lower back, his lower back goes into the net, and then he reaches back INTO the net with his glove and pulls the puck out.

must be that damn fizzix again

Not logical but they look at it as “if we can’t physically see it, it doesn’t exist”.
