Couple small notes....

1.) LCA is simply incredible. Growing up in the 90s, my first impression of attending sporting events was old Tiger Stadium, the Silverdome, and the Joe. So needless to say, I watched some games in some dumps (not that i didn't absolutely love and don't miss them all very much), but that being said, for my money, nothing compares to this new joint. I can't imagine a better place to watch a hockey game. I went to Comerica in 2000 and I went to Ford Field 2 years after it opened. Both fantastic venues with major upgrades over their predecessors, but in my opinion, pales in comparison to Little Caesar's. Every single small amenity you might normally overlook is wonderfully recognizable, the ice level, sight lines, and scoreboard are incredible. Basically, if you haven't gone yet, and have the ability to go.....GO. 

2.) In 20 some odd years of watching hockey, never do I remember once seeing a team virtually kill their entire penalty by backtracking the puck into their defensive zone and just sitting on it during a delayed penalty against the opponent. I know it happens similar to the way in which it did tonight, but I've never seen it even close to that extent. One of the weirdest things I've seen in a hockey game.

Good win, but I couldn't help but notice that this was the Athanasiou Show...  Larkin played well, too. Our other forwards, for the most part, were invisible. We've won 3 straight, 2 of them due to great performances by Athanasiou and Larkin. I will happily eat crow, but I don't see this winning streak as anything but an aberration.

You seen quite the game. Glad to hear another positive review on the LCA. I'll be there in a few weeks for a couple games. Can't f***ing wait!
