#2279542 4/7 GDT : Blackhawks 3 at Red Wings 2

Did you say you think Crawford will get a SHUTOUT???

I do believe so. He's got a SHUTfreakinOUT going.

How long has it been since the Wings were down 2-0 after 2 periods and came back to win? Gee... I sure wish I had a long-term memory.

Maybe Sheahan should do some dental work on Seabrook for trying to neuter Flip.

I regret that I have used up my quota of plusses for the day.

Aren't these two teams locked into playing each other in the first round no matter what happens today?

It that's the case, honestly I think they may just save it for when the games really count and play not to get injured today.

They're locked. Today they're just playing to get the other team fined over sound bites.

Go Wings!

Thanks Mike for all the GDT's you've done. Hopefully you'll have four more rounds' worth before the season ends.

Ok, I admit the first time I saw it, I missed it too until I know where I was supposed to be looking.

It is entirely possible that the refs thought to themselves, "Did he just... nah, couldn't be. The other guy would have called something that stupid. They'd think I was crazy if I suggested he did something like that."

I want to know what was going on in Clowe's head.

Is he playing today? Or is he in the quiet room until he recovers from his amnesia?

I think Torts and Milbury have hit on something...

Random coaches/players can call out Sidney and then apologize immediately. The message will get out. People will talk about what they said.

Apologizes theses days are a dime a dozen. The standard apology is canned and forced and insincere. Get a good, funny sound bite- rather than just whining- and "apologize" right away a la Larry the Cable Guy.

This could be fun.

Dear Wings,
Remember how you played after St. Louis scored two goals?
Play like that again. Just don't wait until the Devils score two goals.
Don't let them score any. Just play like you did when you were down by two.
Remember that? Yeah. Good times.

Love, Your friend, Karen

#2277185 Milbury slams Blysma and Crosby

Posted by 55fan on 03 April 2012 - 12:26 PM

Have you ever tried to fight in a skirt? I can barely sit, stand, or breathe in one. There's a reason chicks are lady-like and restrained in a skirt. In a word: pantyhose.

Although I disagree with Mike that Bylsma should have fought. Coaches should leave that to the players and just yell stuff at each other. Suits don't have fight straps, and they probably need dry cleaning, and that's expensive.

Not sure what Milbury expected.

As for sending out the line that he did, I believe that you play to the last horn. If that's how you play when your team is behind, then you play that way whether you're behind by 1 or 11.

Does it surprise you that I approve?

Love the clock. Nice touch.

Can you imagine if that was at the Joe with that little tiny area that Murph has to squeeze into?

I'm surprised they didn't use Pierre as a stepping stone and jump across to the other side. I'm sure from their angle, he did look like a rock in a stream.

Wow! I can't believe Milbury said that. Good for him. Although, I think he likes to say things to get attention, so whether or not he actually believes that is a good question.

For all the people whining about the crosscheck on Crosby (not so much here, but on comments of articles and other message boards), that hit from Schenn was nothing. It was essentially a tap and Crosby flops to the ground like he was hit by a sniper. How many times have we seen him with the puck and defensemen are slamming into him, crosschecking him, basically using their whole body to try and knock him off the puck and Crosby stays on his feet. He gets tapped from behind without a puck and down he goes? Not buying it.

Yeah, one thing you hear about Crosby is "strong on the puck". Anyone can slip or catch a rut or just lose their balance, but their body language afterwards is a pretty good indication as to whether or not they just fell/slipped or if they were diving.

Sid looked like he was pushing for a penalty.

(Happy b-day, BTW)

I can't tell s*** from that video. It looked like a regular hit with kopecky falling.

Nonsense. Kopecky regularly falls without being hit.


Sorry, couldn't resist.

Carry on.

The third question was easy.

You can find out about Budd Lynch HERE.

Good luck with your presentation.
