This meltdown by Toews is so awesome. If your alternate captain has to come over and cool you off while you sit in the box in shame, you aren't captaining right. We need at least one more in the third. No way this game finishes 1-0.
I've seen more predictions from both sides that this is going to be a blowout when in truth we should know better lol. I will go with 4-3 Wings in OT but wouldn't mind a 7-0 Crawford chasing or something like that.
Not a bad period. The refs started the game like they were going to let them play but then decided they should start calling things here and there and have become completely inconsistent. Crawford looks suspect and Howard seems to be in the zone again. He is not giving up much in terms of rebounds.
Q on that list is a joke. I herd experts saying at the start of the year that if the Wings made the playoffs that Babs should get a nomination for coach of the year because of how much their roster downgraded in the past couple years especially with the defense but I don't really mind the other two nominations.
I've been to a couple Wings v Hawks games at the Joe and there are always a couple aholes who think it's okay to clap and cheer during the national anthem just because they are wearing Chicago gear. As long as you don't do that or try to start a "Detroit sucks" chant, you will be fine.
My Mom was losing her s*** at the end of the game. Then she did the most ridiculous happy dance in front of the TV and started pointing and saying "HAHA Losers" When she saw Perry on his knees. If I recorded it and put it on Youtube, it would be the greatest video of all time lol but I wasn't fast enough.
I think I was one of the guys that started the "Todd Bertuzzi" chant and during that chant, wouldn't you know it, Kronwall knocks who gives a s*** into next week. I didn't start chanting "you got Kronwalled" but as soon as I heard it, I was yelling it like mad. That was the best atmosphere for a Wings game I have ever seen.
I just got back from the game and omg my voice is so shot. Easily the best Wings game I have ever been to. Howard played amazing and saved our asses more than a couple times.
The crowd was unreal. I don't know how clear everything on TV was but there was a "Let's go Red Wings" chant literally every 15 seconds and the "You got Kronwalled" chant was just so epic. Nice to see the "Todd Bertuzzi" chant back as well. For my girlfriends first game ever, she is now spoiled if I ever take her to a regular season game. I don't have anything else to say, that was so great!
Taking my girlfriend to the Joe tonight for her first ever Red Wings game or NHL game period. I'm not too optimistic about tonight but we will have fun either way as long as the Wings don't get blown out. I haven't been to a game all season but last year my record at games was something like 4-0-1 so hopefully I can bring some good luck.
