8 In The Can

Denver’s won two in a row, after losing something like 30 straight.  So, in the midst of their longest winning streak in 9 years, all 13 Dive fans are excited.  This is finally the year that youth will rule the day.

Or we’ll just kick their asses like the Wings have been doing since 2002. Consistently. Ruthlessly. And with great mirth.

The Conk is out, because the NHL’s best goaltender is taking a break. Finally.  Yes, the NHL’s best.  James F. Howard. And if I was going to write a post, another one, proclaiming that? It would go something like this….

“Earlier in the year I said that Jim Howard was the best goaltender in the National Hockey League and the NHL.  It’s been two months since I said that Jim Howard was the best goalie in the National Hockey League.  I’ve studied the statistics that suit my argument and I’m still going to say again and once more now in this blog post about the best goaltenders that Jim Howard is the best goalie in the NHL.”

It’s a Live Blog bitches, minus JFH, but complete with redolence and juveniliciousness.

Zero comments so far.  Wow.  Anyway, is this Dave Strader doing the play-by-play for FSD?

Shit. Conner.  No finish, but damn if it don’t look like we’ve found ourselves another forward.

Aloha Chief.  Hypothetically quoting yourself with great swagger!  Cheers!

I missed the last game and was super bummed to miss his debut with the wings.  Have been wondering when he would get a chance.  He went to Tech, so I’ve mildly followed his career afterwards and was super happy to see him signed by the Wings.  Always thought he deserved a permanent spot with some club.  The puck just seems to follow him around out there.  And he’s fan-fuching-tastic on the PK.

Errorson panics with the puck on the extra-skater delayed-call and throws it out of the offensive zone.

No.
That’s Dave Strader filling in for Ken Daniels who is unavailable because Ken’s father past.

Good substitute.

Evening, all.

Does Happy even look toward the net when he has the puck?  Always looking for the pass.  Never shoots.
