The TRAP!

Well, well, well. The Wings are coming into tonight's game riding high after winning their last four games. It's safe to say confidence is high among the players. For now. Wings fans everywhere have been pleasantly surprised by their play, their confidence, the honest effort, exciting hockey, and more recently, the winning.

This is not the time for the Wings to get too cocky or over confident. They face off tonight against an Islanders team that due to circumstances beyond their control, are currently in a slump. Remember,  Barry Trotz is their coach, which makes them dangerous, and, a very formidable opponent.

We all know that this is the perfect set up for what the 19 have come to refer to as the TRAP. In the past, a typical TRAP game happens when any team, no matter how bad, seems to make good when facing the Wings. They can't let that happen anymore. This is a new era. The Yzerman/Yzerplan Era. It's high time to reverse the trends of the past, and, continue to move forward. 

It's a Live Blog!

Not only that, but they seem to have all their players back now. And I agree the worst thing for our team is when they think they are the favorites

Evenin’ Bitches!
A couple of nasty dangerous hits already.  The NHL is surely serious about eliminating dangerous plays (sarcasm font).

And Clutterbuck is around, and just bitch slapping the Wings in completely legal ways.

Man, Raymond’s puck smarts and hustle at keeping the puck in the zone on that one series was amazing. This kid really has puck sense for his age

I really should not have called Gagne’s goal a garbage goal as it was placed perfectly. smile

It’s hard to believe Alex Delvecchio is 90 years old. 90 stick taps for “Fats”!
He sure looks way younger!  Time has really flown by!
