Time To Start Winning Boys

Paul here for Bill who as we know is a busy man and probably a bit pissed-off too.

I was going to post an old video of the Wings playing the Capitals but decided against it because it just isn't enjoyable watching some old highlights when your team needs a win.

Let's hope the Wings can get on a roll starting tonight.

In their next 22 games through the end of the year, they play 12 at home, 10 on the road and the longest road trip is to South Florida, twice.

They play 3 Western Conference teams, Nashville twice and Anaheim once.

They play four sets of back-to-back games but the hardest one is with the Wings at home for both games against the Pens and Bolts.

19, hmm, 19 games against the East through the end of the year.

Go ahead and check the schedule.  Looks favorable, very favorable, so now is the time to start collecting points, 2 per night.

Time to start winning boys, everything is in your favor.

 

 

Oh, it's a live blog b#$&$#s!

Pleasant wonderful surprise at the end of that period. I’ve stopped admiring Buckets skill and now am pining for Nyquist.

Saw them back in the 90’s. Scheduled for 9 pm, crowd was tearing the arena to shreds before they appeared at 11. Great show, though. But, in hindsight, really glad I decided against the Appetite For Destruction album cover tattoo.

It was close there for a while

I REALLY dislike Quincey as a player, but for really stupid reasons (other than him not being a $3m+ defender)...

What’s that? You want to hear them? Sure, here they are:

A) He skates with his head TOO far up; I used to play with guys who looked like they were forcing themselves to not look down at the puck - like “LOOK AT ANYTHING BUT THE PUCK OMGOMGOMGOMG” - and they looked just like Quincey does when he skates. I hated them, and I hate him.

2) He does the old “beaver tail” stick-slap waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much. Yeah, I know you want the puck. Yeah, I know you’re there. *#$%@& quit making a bunch of noise to get my attention. Dick.

That’s pretty much it. I’m weird.

As I said to Trish earlier: If the shoe fits. wink

I liked it better when Semin played for Washington… then I could use the line, “Ovechkin Laichs Green’s Semin on his Backstrom.”

And it made me giggle. See above.
