I'm leaving for the airport in like an hour and will be at the game tomorrow night (and the next night). I can't wait. It'll be nice to see what a winter actually looks like again too since it's been in the 70s and 80s in California this winter.
They played pretty damned good tonight. The power play seemed flat? Just because they didn't score doesn't mean it was flat. That was some of the best PP looks I have seen from the Wings in some time, now. Alffy helps BIG time on the PP.
Our D was great as well. The one goal they scored was to a flub by Howie, which wasn't that really that bad anyway and in my opinion was more of a good play by the Buffalo player.
People already looking forward to getting big bert off the team? He was responsible for some of our best chances tonight.
I know Buffalo is weak but there were points when we were dominating with surgical precision that quite frankly brought back memories of the Russian 5 for me, especially on the PP. It seems some people just aren't satisfied unless it's a blow out.
Criticize, criticize, criticize. That is the MO here. It's quite ridiculous.
I don't know if anyone saw but after the Kings/Sharks game last night, there was a commercial advertising the conference finals and it had the two already decided eastern teams and then the Wings and Kings...I think that means we're good and the NHL has already decided the out comes.
