Huds Flip Mule
Abby Helm Bert
Eaves Emmerton Miller


Ah yes the Hud and Zetterberg flip. Tbh I couldn't really tell except now it makes sense watching that second goal. lol. Not the worst of ideas on sitting Holmstrom tonight besides the fact our PP is bogus right now... Good thing is or PK is on the opposite side of the spectrum right now which is great....

Wow. I was so happy when the Wings signed Conks as the BU. Besides Kindle's bonehead play in the !st that Flips took care of, I am really getting excited about this season. Have to say that I impressed how the Avs played. Young team with a lot of energy. Dats still amazes me of what he does every game. Gotta wait 5 days for the next game though.

Nice win.

Powerplay needs some work but an overall solid effort.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Great 3rd period.

Was nice to see them put the Avs away, great game by our top line and Conks.

I just got home. It was a good time. The jersey retirement was cool to see, but not altogether very special. The crowd was in full-on "Red Wings suck!" mode. They even booed Lidstrom--"Lindstrom" in the Avs vernacular, as displayed on the video screen--when he appeared on the video with a shout-out to Forsberg. Anyway, I retaliated throughout the game by asking those Avs fans around me whom amongst the two teams had made the playoffs last year. When the Wings scored, I hit them with a "Who sucks now?" and managed to make a few of them pretty angry.

The Wings looked slow in the first, good in the second and dominant in the third. The crowd wasn't especially loud at any point, and the Avalanche fans became testy and restless in the third because of the Wings` constant possession of the puck.

Also of note is that the game was not sold out. Given that it was opening night and given that it saw the retirement of one of the Avs` greatest players, it struck me as pretty sad. Anyway, I had a good time.

It does seem awful slow around here for the beginning of the regular season.

Anyhow, Conklin had a great game. Good to see him back. Our 3rd line looked great again. I'd like to see Bertuzzi stay on the 3rd line, simply because he's got a defined role playing with Helm and Abdelkader, that role being finishing his checks, skating hard on the backcheck, and playing responsible defensively, as well as occasionally chipping in offensively. Drew Miller is starting to grow on me. He looked solid again tonight, and at this point I don't think Babs should sit Miller in favor of Brunnstrom.

As far as the attendance in Denver tonight, I thought Ken and Mick mentioned it was sold out.

There were some soft penalty calls, especially where O'Brien got an interference for his little push on Cleary in front of the net. I know the call favored us, but wow. That's not what the game needs.

It's ironic that Forsberg talks about how his best times were "always beating the Red Wings", and those same Wings end up beating them 3-0 on the same night.

It was a funny comment, but I don't mind it blowing up in their fans faces.

Really excited to see the next game. I haven't been able to see the first two because of previous engagements but a 2-0 start is always great.

Yea that's definitely the reason. It's not every year these two teams play at the same time in October.

Michigan Football as well also probably cut into things. I know I watched the Tigers and flipped to the Wings game, it's not every year the Tigers make the postseason.
