Hope he sounds more excited when we interview him  :confused:

I'm sure he's kind of bewildered in a way and once it sets in he'll feel fantastic he was traded to the greatest sports organization in the world  :w00t:

If we're going to get a penalty, can't it be from shoving Weber's head into the glass?

On the way home from region chorus (I got a kid into states!!!) and hitting Starbucks for caffeine and to check the score. What is the short recap?

Btw, great GDT - the volleyball for Wilson was a great touch.

 

Andersson had a beauty of  pass between Preds players to Smitty who roofed it home off a Preds player.

 

We are playing quite well.

Good to hear Smitty is playing.

 

GO WINGS!




#2574702 Going To My First Wings Game - Suggestions?

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 25 February 2015 - 06:58 AM

Before I can give you any tips, I need to know a few things.

How far do you live from Baltimore? How much time do you spend there? What do you typically do for fun? What kind of bars/restaurants do you frequent? Are you looking for good clean fun, or do you want an edgier experience? If edgier, how much?

You can feel free to ignore my post. I did pretty much just drop popquiz on you. I just want to avoid recommending places you wouldn't like. Please, just don't go to Hockeytown cafe.

 

Why?  I've been there a few times.  You should go to Hockeytown cafe.  One of the times I went there we were going to play the Pens.  When you get there you usually give them your name if you're eating there and then you wait to be seated.  They announce your name over a loud speaker when it's your turn.  While waiting we heard the name of Crosby and everyone in the place booed lol.  I'm sure it was on purpose ;).

Lol, so far but I'm sure I'll only last through the 1st period.

#2573892 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Well as interesting as a bunch of anecdotal evidence is, actual scientific research suggests that fighting has no positive effect on the outcome of the game.  The ol' eyeball test is good for finding a date on a Friday night, but if you want to find the truth about real world phenomena...you have to use science.  Bummer. 

 

https://georgetownsp...a-hockey-fight/

 

"We can see in all four of these data sets that there is no evidence that winning a fight leads to better results in the immediate aftermath of the fight. In fact, it appears that the team winning the fight will score slightly less goals in the game than they did previously. In all four groups, the percentage of goals scored by the winning team is within 1.96 standard deviations of the percentage of its total goals scored, indicating that the results are negligible. Thus, we cannot reject the null hypothesis that winning a fight has no impact on a team’s momentum and goal differential."

So, I guess, our overall conclusion from this study isn't completely certain. We wind up with a summary like:

1. The effect doesn't seem to exist for run-of-the-mill fights.
2. When a goon fighter on a goon team fights when his team is down, it seems to benefit that team by 1/8 of a goal, or a bit less than a normal power play.
3. But, that effect isn't statistically significant, so we have some doubts that it's real.
4. And, with only 364 such datapoints qualifying out of around 5,000, only a small percentage of fights match the criterion for that kind of boost.

If you had to reduce that to one line, it might be: At best, there might be a small effect in certain specific circumstances ... but much, much less than sportscasters make it out to be.

 

Ok we get it.  You don't like fighting.  Ad nauseum.
