The Stanley Cup Champions Are In Town

Last year proved the Wings know how to beat the Blackhawks, can they do it again tonight?

Yes Detroit is devastated by injuries but the game must be played so why not play a perfect game and come out with two points?

Big game needed from Zetterberg, Gustavsson and others.

Would be nice to see Bertuzzi score and Ericsson play like he hasn't missed a game.

The Wings should be tired of losing right now, just like most of us are.

With that, score one more goal than Chicago, then get ready for the Habs.

It's a live blog bitches!

Thanks, Boss.  Even if the game goes to the gimmick point, it’s two points to be had and it helps.

That’s Right, the Cawks DID win it all last year. I honestly didn’t remember that.

After our boys shit the bed in the last playoff series(after a nice run), I turned my attention to other things.

Two very huge points that we need to pocket tonight. On national television. Can we do it?

I’m not expecting a miracle or anything, but I’d love to see us win this.

Turned on the TV a few minutes ago and saw Pee-Air interviewing Hossa.  I can’t do it.  I turned off the TV and turned on the radio feed with Ken and Paul.

NBC SUCKS.

I have gotten the same way with Emrick. Almost as annoying as Dick Vitale calling a basketball game. Almost.

I was watching a nbc game last week with the douche canoe between the benches, two opposing players were chirping at each yore right in front of the douche. He was forced to cut the audio on his mic due to language being used. Now, we just need a way to encourage players to scrum and swear in front of this idiot more often.

I tried to get in the EdFitz, Bullet Bob, a hooker, a firetruck, some puppies, Jobu, Leslie Nielsen/the Airplane! airplane (for Shirley), a sacrificial altar… and I think that’s it.

Everything Cap’n D requested. wink

Not sure how anyone is expected to stay onside with Cleary bringing the puck up ice.

They take a smoke break at the blueline.

If Cleary starts carrying the puck in the neutral zone, everyone else has to tag up at the defensive blue line.

NBC thinks Sheahan is injured.

I’m willing to bet the Linesman is in worse shape.
