The Blues Are Back In Town

First off, I could use whatever you folks are drinking tonight.

One of each would be just fine, just overnight it!

It feels like ages ago since we faced the Blues and things have changed.

The Wings are barely treading water while the Blues have grown up to become a team to deal with this season.

But none of this matters tonight and all we can ask of this winged-wheel team is keep delivering the effort.

Helm should help, but once again, it is all on Jimmy.

Deal with those cross-ice passes the Blues like to make and maybe, just maybe, we can start this stretch of home games at 2-0.

It's a live blog bitches and keep in my mind when watching the game on how much IwoCPO hated this team!

Don’t downplay the 19, sir.
I’d not have had the chance to tip beers with you in CA and MI if not for this asylum.

Downplay the 19?  Never.  I was referring to real life for the Chief.  Besides I’ll forever be grateful for the picture of us at the Shart Tank with the glowing fairy over your head. LOL

Man, the effort might be there but they can’t do anything in the offensive zone so far, and they’re just killing themselves in the defensive zone by passing to guys who already have someone bearing down on them.

Same old, same old, I guess…

I’m not sure that was offside, but that doesn’t matter anymore.

In KC so I’m being treated to the blues feed. I really do like Darren Pang as a color guy, but man it’s tough to take him as a blues homer.

Panger says the Wings are like the Blues having to “earn it” in the minors and then get called up.
Sheesh, I used to like the little cue ball.

Jesus, that’s what I’m talking about. Kindl goes behind the net for the puck while the Wings line change, and he has no one to pass to for a good 10 seconds. What the hell was that…

Q-ball with a weak back hand shot on net. Figures it’d be his own.

That goal off the netting was great.  Its nice to be on the winning end of the NHL random bullshit generator for a change.

Zata had a fantastic setup and Nike was late in seeing it.

Stick on the ice, Nike.
