Saving Both Barrels For Captain Farrell

I've decided I don't like Marian Hossa.  I never blamed him for leaving Hockeytown for the starched collars and wine coolers of Chicago.  Well, I did because I'm me and I'm always looking for someone to blame for something.  But, I kind of understood it.  Our man with the plan Tick Tock made his choice and Gary wouldn't let us keep them both, so...it's history.

I don't like him now, though. Not one bit.  

I didn't like the goal celebration Wednesday.  The Superman thing with the mouth wide open, yes...say it.  That's ok though.  Not full-on hate.  Just a lot of bit of dislike.

And you know I've never liked Kane. Ever. He's Corey Perry with talent. I don't like Joel Quenneville because his mustache is dumb and he was a Dive then a Blue and now a Hawk and that's a toxic combination, like mixing baby shit with Blue Moon and Thai food.  

I don't like the song, or the arena or that fact that during the National Anthem people are not just screaming (which is ok but not recommended), but they're chatting and looking all over the place. Hats on.  Texting. Eating things.  

I can't stand the White Sox.  I know that AJ Pierzdouchebag isn't there anymore and Ozzie Guillen is producing Nicaraguan porn.  So, they're gone but still...

Not a fan of Great Lakes, either.  I went to boot camp there and there was this mean bastard of a Chief who didn't like me. He picked on me and made me sad.  Naturally, I like him now. But back then he put underwear on my head and made me march around and chant things.  

I hated Michael Jordan and loved it when Bill Laimbeer gave him bad visions.  I loved that rivalry until it wasn't one then I stopped watching the NBA, kind of like how I don't post anything when the Wings lose.  Weird.

It's desperation time.  Today is critical, just like the last month has been critical. Every night.  From what I've read, the Wings were...tired.  That's why they came out looking strong like bull in the first period then went fetal the final two.  Ok.  Well, Gary's given them plenty of rest.  And then there's gonna be a lot more.  But rest won't matter a bit if they lose today because there is no way baby Jesus lets us win this thing down 0-2.  That's just science.  

There is whiskey in that there jar.  It's important that it flows. Freely.  Often.  

It's a Live Blog bitches.  LGRW.  12 to 12.

apparently the refs told Chicago before the game “don’t worry about the sticks, we won’t call you for hooking”

Cawks need four guys to shut down Dangles.  That leaves at least three other Wings WIDE OPEN.

Throw in the Olympic-style dive and I lost any respect I had for Hossa by the end of that game. He’s a Hawk now, for sure – they’ve taught him how to be a grandstanding douchebag. “Kronwall” the MF.

I think its been tried already…

Wings are making it easy on the Chicago defense, entering the zone up the boards every time.

The amount of hooking and slashing the Hawks are able to get away with on their forecheck is something to behold.  God knows if it was the Wings Olsuck would be having a fit.

horrendous giveaway by Cleary, 2 feet from getting out of the zone.  NOT SKATING.  isn’t that what they “worked on?”

We are doing well in the Chickenhawks’s zone.  We are also doing well keeping the Chickenhawks on the outside in our zone.  If we can limit secondary scoring chances in our zone, the nail might end up giving it to the hammer.

How does Detroit get called for a hook going towards the Hawk’s zone?
