Jonathan Toews vs. the World, I mean Red Wings?

Sportsnet posted quite the clip hyping the "Red Wings and Henrik Zetterberg vs. Jonathan Toews' frustration" angle heading into Game 3 between Detroit and Chicago this evening (7:30 PM EDT, NBCSN/CBC/97.1 FM, post-game on FSD). Toews! Zetterberg! Babcock!

Kronwalled? Not likely, but TSN duly noted that the Hawks possess a 9-1-and-1 record at Joe Louis Arena since 2010, and that's plain old scary.

Going back and watching those Toews highlights of getting “man-handled” by Z and it looks like he’s diving on majority of them.  He gets touched and falls the the ice, like 8 times.  Not hit or shoved, touched.  He really does look like a 10 year old kid out there mad the game isn’t going his way and throwing diving tantrums and mad that the officials didn’t call any of his dives to help to his team get back o the PP cause they were sucking even strength.

That being said, hope Z keeps doing what he’s doing.  I just keep remembering Thidney in the SCF’s.  If Z could shut him down, Toews should be a fun challenge.

LMAO.  Now the stupid Cawks fans will be taking up the us-against-the-world attitude that has miserably failed every other team using it (yes, the Fab Five, too) as motivation.  Just stop, turds.  Every media and their creepy brothers are picking you to win this series.

Like Uncle Mike says, “Let’s Just Play.”
