:thumbup: You are correct, Sir.

Of course I am still :ranting: about the lose. And of course I want them to win, but I am a bit concerned. The team started off looking like Cup favorites at the beginning of the season. It seemed as if things happened too easily for them and they thought they'd better slow down and pace themselves for a long season. That coupled with the injuries and suddenly the've lost their Mojo and can't seem to get it back.

Let's hope. Maybe it's time for Darren Helm to stand upand give a speech in the locker room. if everyone played as hard and as intense as Helmer, we wouldn't be talking about this.

Go Wings


People seem to forget that it is a long season. The Wings kicked ass the first 1/4 of the season and since then have been inconsistent. They have shown "flashes" since then. Remember the Boston series? Or the game against Montreal? Or the 3 in a row on the coast? Of course not.

Guess what - Vancouver sucked the first part of the season and so did San Jose and neither was due to injuries. Washington and Philly were dominant a couple of months ago but have fallen off recently.

None of that matters when the playoffs start.
Do or do not. There is no try

I didn't think I would have to do this unless the Wings were getting beaten down in the Playoffs.. but after the other night I think it's time for me to move on to a new lucky hat. I really hope the Wings come out and dominate today because a look at the standings says there is a very good possibility that the Preds will the the first round opponent. A win tonight and the Wings go into that series with this game as their freshest memory against Nashville, as opposed to the memories of barely being able to score a goal against Rinne.

Thanks for the GDT, Hockeytown.

No Pavel, no win.

Especially against Nashville, they've easily outplayed us all season, and it won't stop tonight.

Chicago won last night but it went to a shoot out which means that our magic number over Chicago is now down to 2. They lost the tie breaker last night. We would now own the tie breaker.

Any combination of Chicago losses (in regulation) and Wings wins (in regulation)that equals 2 gives us the division. We have the same number with Nashville which means a win today will knock Nashville out of the running for the division.

Unless Dallas decides to start winning soon, Chicago is going to make the playoffs.

If Chicago wins their next 3 and Dallas wins their next 4 we go into the final weekend with Chicago up on Dallas by 3 points and the Wings set up to knock the Hawks out of the playoffs.

That would be awesome.

Heading to Nashville now from the state of Alabama. Got two tickets at section 106 row JJ seats 7 and 8. I went the game two weeks ago. Hopefully it doesn't end with country music playing this time. WINGS WIN 5-2!!!!!!!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Nah man. I'm not gonna lie, I am little down, disappointed, and scared at this point, but I'm not gonna result to blaming the losses and injuries on the first "idea" that pops into my head.

We got this game today! I can just feel it!

LGW!!!! Light that s*** up!!!! :siren: :siren: :siren:

I really hope Babs and the Wings figured something out between the Blues game and this one. Maybe find some heart and hit back so they don't get pounded like last game against Nashville also would help if the zebras actually called a penalty every now and then when someone gets elbowed or driven into the boards.
