You, good sir, are awesome. Warms my heart to see another young Wings fan getting into it. Cool custom jersey he's got too.
Didn't see the game nor the highlights, but loved the names on the scoresheet!
Lol thank you! Yeah, its a pseudo Yzerman jersey. Its a 19 with a captain C, but it has his first name on the back. His middle name is Yzerman .
As for the game itself, Datsyuk looked like he was just toying with Pens players at times, stealing it, stick handling around them, blowing by them, etc. Sproul was noticeable with his play and I mean that in a good way. He worked hard last night. Seeing how he was used on the PP, I can see why Babs wanted a right handed shooting defenseman so badly. Even he keeps that up the whole preseason, it'll be tough for them to send him down. Tatar didn't mess around either. He seemed like he was all business and wanted to keep his spot on the top line. Howard looked for good his first preseason game, he was screened on the only goal against. Xavier Ouellet looked decent. I don't think any of the GR forwards did anything worthy of earning a spot with the big club yet.
Just got back from the game. My 6 year old was a very good road fan for us chanting "Lets Go Wings" for every single "Lets Go Pens". A kid across the aisle from us was waving a terrible towel and he waved it at my son when the Pens scored. When Datsyuk scored, he goes "Not waving that towel now huh?!" I was in shock, he's usually pretty mild mannered, but he was really getting into it. Everyone around us just laughed, except the kid with the towel. Here are a few good pics I got:
