I think the wow FSN+ feed got fixed finally.  Pictures been stable for a bit now. 

 

Now someone fill me in on what I missed the first 18 minutes. 

I sent a tweet to them asking why it's so terrible. It probably has nothing to do with it, but I'm going to take the credit. You're welcome everyone!

June 2008?

 

Seems like the last 4 games we've played have been powerplay fests, for or against.

Hopefully it's just an adjustment period after a few rule changes, but I agree.
They're supposed to be calling more interference I guess

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

They seem to be calling hooking and interference even tighter this season. Starting to get to the point where having body position on anyone is instantly a penalty... hockey is a contact sport, hooking I don't want to defend but some of these interference calls are just BS.

Worth mentioning again. Detroit is the only team in the league without a first period goal.

If the goal of the lockout was to make hockey unwatchable, I would say they did a fine job.

All of these penalties every single game is ruining the entertainment value even more. Over half of each period is just spent on special teams.

Is Miller told to stand still like a pylon on the PK? Emmerton has done a good job so far. Still too passive for me.

Makes sense, all our 1st periods have been awful. This was maybe our best and that says it all.

Kronwall needs to move his feet instead of taking penalties.

Not sure why the Dallas player kept his visor on when they squared up.

 

 

Especially when he knew all the punches would be coming upward from below!

 

Dillon connected on a lot of those upper cuts and rocked Tootoo, but then Toots frikin refocussed instantly and kept it a fight.  At 5'8, he's all balls  and biceps!

Hey st michael, today would be a perfect time for you to prove me wrong! Dallas is a few seconds away from not converting on a 5-3!

Loved the 2nd Tootoo fight.

 

I always wondered why more players don't fight like that.  I always though being that in a hockey fight it is hard to land a head shot, and even if you do, it is easy for the player receiving the shot to simply turn his head causing you to punch his helmet and f*** up your hand, why wouldn't you go for the body? 

 

Anyone that has even been in a real fight  knows that rib and kidney shots hurt like a *****.  Surprised we don't see more of these type of fights, especially from smalled cats like Tootoo.

 

And you know it was effective. because you could just see the cat Tootoo was hitting start wincing when he started getting punched to the armpit, ribs and kidneys, and he flipped out and started to retaliate in kind.

WOW customers that are pissed about missing the game, let WOW know how you feel.  You can't call them because their phones go to a busy signal, but you can let them know on their Facebook page:
