  1. Avs score. Kadri again. mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  2. Get puck. Shoot puck. Get puck back. Repeat.
  3. End of 2nd. Wings trail 1-2. Could be worse, I guess.
  4. Don't get me wrong, I believe Hronek is establishing himself as a legit top-pairing defenseman. And I think Seider has all the makings of a monster cornerstone guy. I just think it's funny/sad/infuriating that the Wings have managed to miss the boat on an entire subspecies of defenseman. To be fair tho, I wasn't super-keen on taking Quinn Hughes at 6th overall, so I don't have any room to talk.
  5. That sequence that happened just now, where the Wings were applying some o-zone pressure and Bertuzzi tried to force a long pass back to the point, which led to the Avs breaking out with purpose and ultimately getting a couple of quality scoring chances...at the risk of hugely oversimplifying things, I want to say that that sequence kind of sums up our meltdown pathology. Basically, we seem all too willing to back off from an attacking mentality and go through the motions of low-percentage playmaking. When the going gets tough, you dig your heels in and push back in kind. Put pucks on net. Don't force adventures that very likely wouldn't work out even if you execute them perfectly.
  6. Every team not named the Red Wings seems to have a powerhouse waterbug defenseman who skates like McDavid and scores seemingly at will (like McDavid). I look forward to Seider picking them up and throwing them over the glass.
  7. Avs take the lead. Turns out Cale Makar is, in fact, as good as advertised.
  8. Avs tie it up. Kadri's a punk, but credit where it's due: he's a really good, really underrated player. Maybe Ehn's a bigger drain on the team than we'd thought.
  9. I'm all for a Jimmy Howard redemption arc. Bring it on. Helps the team, helps him feel better about himself, and maybe pushes forced retirement off for another year. Everyone wins.
  10. End of 1st. Wings lead 1-0. This is the Wings team we'd all hoped we'd be watching every night this season.
  11. TRUE. Um, I mean FALSE.
  12. I remember when a 3:00 start time was a death sentence for the Wings. The times they are a-changin'? Maybe?
  13. I like Smith. Wings are playing REALLY well. wtf.
  14. Back to the box Nemeth goes. So that's how it's gonna be, eh, refs?
  15. Wings fans are nothing if not dedicated.
  16. Wings came to play this aftertnoon, apparently. Let's see if they can stretch this beyond the first five minutes.
  17. LMAO @ all the boos when everyone realizes his last name is Bertuzzi.
  18. LGRW!!!!!!!! BERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great play by Larkin! 1-0!
  19. Looks like Flip's a game-time decision. Let's hope he's good to go, cuz even though he drives us crazy sometimes, he's our second-best centerman and we need him. I'm expecting Glendawg to atone. Maybe a shorty? Too much to ask? (Probably.)
