The legend of Jimmeh Howard grows as he goes into the Drunk er, Shark Tank and steals one

My prediction earlier today from page 1, the legend of Jimmeh grows bigger now.

I had nothing better to do on Tuesday night than watch more Red Wings hockey anyway

Friends, countrymen and fellow Red Wing fans, I take my rest now but I'll leave you with this:

If you were in the crowd tonight :clap:

You kept roaring and stayed standing when they looked out of gas and the last 4 minutes of the game the Wings tilted the ice and the fans got louder and the Helm goal blew the lid off the place. Car alarms were going off in Windsor...

At this point down 0-3 I'd actually like tonight's game to go to overtime. I'd love a spirited 4 OT game the Wings can WIN and hopefully going forward, even if not for glory this year, to change OT attitudes on the club and the fanbase. Why 4 OT's? As much as I hope, as much as I cheer, I'm a realist. We're not down 0-3 to the Rangers. 4 OT's might take the proverbial pound of flesh off the Sharks.

I think I speak for everyone when I tell the linesmen to drop the goddamned puck. EVERY faceoff somebody is getting waved like a matador at a bullfight. Just drop it already.

Orca Whale's also get hunted down by predators.

Also single bullets fired from long distance by Swedish defensemen take them down

Problem #1 was finishing. That will come with timing. Keep doing what they're doing. PLEASE Keep Thornton's line out against Datsyuk Z and Homer.

No panic. More hard work. They have fresh legs. The payoff will come.

After tonight I'm reminded of the WCF with Colorado in 1997 after game 1. The Wings played hard and well but Roy was stellar and the Avs won. The Wings just kept playing their game and worked even harder and won games 2, 3 and 4.

If we were Colorado we'd go re-sign Peter Forsberg

I may be one of the few people who can empathize completely with the Phoenix Coyote fans. You see, I'm a Cleveland Browns fan. Don't ask how it happened growing up in Ortonville Michigan, it just did. Now there are obvious differences. The Browns were drawing 75,000 people at LEAST a game. Attendance/apathy wasn't the issue, it was the owner signing a horrible deal he refused to honor. He thought it was the best thing since sliced bread until he got a few years into it and the economics changed. Secondly the Browns move was rather sudden whereas the Coyotes have been rumored somewhere for a long time.

Still, I remember how it hurt. I felt gutshot. Just AWFUL. A very good friend of mine who was a producer for NBC got me tickets to the Sunday game previous to the announcement. Good seats at the Silverdome for the Lions and Browns (Barry ran wild against my Brownies if you're wondering). Our NBC seat entrance was where the bigwigs came in. I literally bumped into Art Modell on our way down the tunnel. We both excused ourselves but I was like WHOA, the owner of my team. It wasn't three days later that son-of-a-***** announced the move. Ohhhhhhhhh if I'd known then what I know now, but I digress.

The remaining team that moved won the Super Bowl in Baltimore like 4 years later with a few of those old Browns which just made it all the worse.

I know there are quite a few real die hard Coyote fans. I know they're not in the numbers of Wings fans or Canadiens fans or even Devils fans but they love their team. They can't wait to watch them just like we can't wait to watch the Wings. They love a Saturday night game while tipping a cold beer. They love wearing the team sweater and think Shane Doan is the greatest captain ever.

It was made fairly apparent after Modell kicked the Browns fan base and the city of Cleveland in the family jewels that during the next NFL expansion the Browns were coming back in under new ownership. They fought in court and kept the old colors and team records and won them as part of a concession finally allowing Modell to pack the team. That's not going to happen for Phoenix. They're not in line to probably ever get an NHL team again. And for that I feel really bad for Coyotes fans.

No, you don't just keep cheering for the old team. Emotionally it's just not that easy. I can be a pretty arrogant Wings fan and love to horse around in jest with the Photoshop thread but I do feel for them. Maybe the U of A or ASU could start a college hockey program, it'd be something.
