Whoops.


Heh, it's okay, you were probably checking a site that hadn't updated their standings yet. I know it's kind of hit or miss with that sometimes. :P

From now on, I'm just going to call a hat trick before the game and that way when it happens, I'll look clairvoyant.

Ott and Burish... I don't think I've ever wanted a duo to run into each other and sprain each other's ACLs so badly since Kunitz and Perry.

EDIT: Missing words.

Great effort in the 3rd and congrats to Eaves on the hat trick. I'm tempted to try to score some free curly fries down here in Maryland while visiting family. Thanks for the commentary in the GDT since it's much better than just refreshing the log on TSN.

I may just become a regular in here once I get home to PA and the center ice package. I'm a PA native but I've been a wings fan since 83 though I'm a noob here.


Welcome! You have excellent taste in hockey teams. :thumbup:

Edicus,

I grew up in Pottsville (home of Yuengling, America's oldest brewery) but I currently live in a small town called Montrose about halfway between Scranton and Binghamton NY (yes I saw Eaves play a couple games with the baby Sens and yes I try to antagonize the fans of the baby Pens any time I get the chance)

If anyone here was on the old listserv that Dave Vergolini ran out of MSU back in the early 90's I was the guy from Penn State

Welcome to the boards.


Just saw that we had 4 goals on 6 shots in the 4rd. :P
Lehtonen was .760......ouch.

Ah, only a couple hours away from me, not too bad. And I love Yuengling, was introduced to that by a girl I used to date who went to Penn State. :P

Look at the distribution of ice time among the dmen.

Salei 22:32
Kronwall 22:29
Stuart 21:57
Lidstrom 19:30
Ericsson 17:34
Rafalski 16:17

Pretty cool. Not much difference. It's like the Western Conference standings.

Hate to be Debbie Downer yet again, but I'm not feeling this one, either. The last game surprised the heck out of me, but tonight they don't have a hell-bent Osgood to bail them out, so I'm going to stick to the doom and gloom for the time being. Despite my bad feeling, though, I'm still going to pick the Wings to win 4-3 again (but no OT please). Howie hasn't been doing spectacularly lately, so I'm guessing he's not going to keep it to 2 or under, but even with our horrible play at the Avs, we managed to get 3 goals in regulation, so I think they'll be able to at least repeat that. I think they could get 4 in regulation if they can get a few guys going who have been in sleep mode.


Was right about the 3 goals against, but SO SO WRONG about our goals!! :yowza: God, what an up and down game. First we're up one, then we're down count 'em 2, then WE just go on this absolute freakin' rampage!! I don't know if I say this enough, so I'll say it again: I LOVE RED WINGS HOCKEY!!! Heck yeah Hudler (keep it up!), heck yeah Howie (for being 1st to 20 goals and for looking really damn solid for 58 minutes of the game), and heck mofo-in' yeah to Eaves! We give you the hats, you give us the fries, we all go home happy. I like it!

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

If Eaves continues to emerge as a breakout player for the Wings it will be interesting to see what happens when the team gets healthy, including Modano. They'll be running out of spots for top-9, scoring-line-type forwards in a hurry.
"We've been in the same spot all year long. We won 50 games for the fourth year in a row. People think we're just hum-drum and boring.

I think Kenny Holland needs to lock up Eaves with a multi year deal before July 1. He's been panning out nicely. I agree with those postulating that he could be the next Franzen or Cleary. If he keeps playing the way he has been his price is just going to go up. Unfortunately I don't know how the tagging rules constrain signings before the playoffs. If anyone knows feel free to chime in.

Lidstrom has also been on a tear, and it's nice to see him back on the plus side of the plus/minus stat again.

Was this game on the NHL Network?

Also, how about all these one timer goals we seem to be having lately? Offense seems to be on fire with those shots.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Howard has scored 20 goals?

North Jersey, maybe 30 minutes from the Delaware Water Gap. :)

What a game! Tonight breaks a bit of a curse on me, as this is the first road game I've ever seen the Wings win. Every other time they either tied, or lost, dating back to 2001-2002. Very glad to have that particular monkey off my back.

The walk back to the truck was alot more fun too. Usually all the Stars fans are complete a-holes if they win against the Wings. Tonight, they were much more subdued. :sly:

And damn, this is a beautiful sight!

Covert Ops has its perks. You travel, make your own hours, and expense most of your meals.
The downside? Lots of people want you dead...
