The Playoffs Are A Thorny Issue

So I'm still optimistic.  The trades could still be filtering in to the league office. Kenny kicked a lot of tires and we all know you don't just kick for the sake of it.  That would be...

...self-flagellating, of course.  

Yes, I've been reading.  Bad Wing fans. Screaming across each other while you type sarcastic words poking fun or even daring to question Saint Kenneth.  At some point I'm going to have time and the hardware to address that. It needs...examination.   

Now though?  It's just a simple live blog bitches.

I walked away for half of that period from the game and the LB.  No goals against.  I return and the Coyotes hit the post/crossbar a minute later and then have the 3-on1 rush off the neutral zone turnover.

The hockey gods have spoken.  I will make myself scarce, bitches.

Before I go, I would be remiss in saying that I am looking forward to when you can get your hardware in your hands again and proceed with your examination, Chief.  Very Muchos.

3 such easy uncontested goals.

This game reminds me of the Dark Times.

Might the color of a visiting team’s locker room at a major Midwestern university be a matter of interest to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights?

Jill Gaulding, a cofounder of the advocacy group Gender Justice, claims that the University of Iowa is engaged in “pink shaming” and “cognitive bias” by making its football team’s opponents dress and undress in a locker room that is painted . . . pink:


Civil Rights?  Really?  Tell me again why most folks hate lawyers…....

What a disastrous night. StL picked up 2 points on us AND they still have 2 games in hand, assuming we don’t get 2 goals in 6:15.

I’d certainly lay some rubber to the Belle Tire lady.

Posted by RWBill from the open bar on The Hasek. on 04/05/13 at 12:17 AM ET

So that’s what you’re supposed to do with the rubber when you’re done using it.

How are the 19 aboard the Stress Train’s Hasek Club Car like Darren McCarty?

We all love watching hockey and doing shots on rails.

Yup, because it couldn’t have anything to do with all that psychology research that shows pink has a calming effect.

why does Franzen think there’s going to be a rebound on a puck shot chest high?

it’s almost as if the refs randomly pick a penalty they won’t call, each game…but only tell the Wings’ opponent which one.  what does it take for them to call slashing?

not that it matters, but how was an arm not in the air for interference on Cleary?

why are the refs even out there?

I concur.  The future generation does not need regular coke in their mixed drinks. C’mon Cal, it’s for the chillern.
