Congrats on your first game at the cathedral! But you, like so many Wings fans have before you, will have to choose after the game. Are you a Lafayette Coney Island person or an American Coney Island fan?
How perfect is this? Wings in high def on HNIC. My neighbor Sabrina who is now a fashion designer but used to be a big name pastry chef just brought over a plate of magnificent Christmas cookies. A cup of egg nog and a Datsyuk goal.
it's the little moments in life that make it so great.
One last note about last night's game. I was watching the Wings bench as they came out for the third period and I'm not sure if TV caught it but Babcock went down the bench tapping each player on the shoulders or a back slap as if to say "Here we go, let's get this rolling."
Tonight wasn't the most action packed game I've ever seen. But it had its moments. Lots of good looking Red Wing fans including a contingent of Swedes wearing the Tre Kronor sweaters and replete with viking hats. But let's get to the fun:
Wings on the attack in the first period. How do you know it's the first period? Red Wings attacking in my end and Weiss is still playing.
The very beginning of Abdelkader getting rubbed out good in the first period. We can't show you any more of this play because DECENCY!
What do we want? Cleary! When do we want it? NOW!
The Mule, the BIG goal. Remember the scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High where Brad Hamilton gets fired from All American Burger for a dust up with a customer only because a coworker had to piss? "I hope you had a helluva nap Henrique!"
Tatar unassisted, but loved by many........And there was much rejoicing
"...Stamkos was hurt with 7:11 to play in the second period. He entered the day tied with Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby as the NHL's leading scorer. Stamkos got tied up with Boston defenceman Dougie Hamilton and crashed into the right post.
His left skate appeared to hit the post first before his right leg crashed into it around the shin area. He tried to get up twice before going down to the ice in pain, grabbing his leg just above the ankle.
The injury is bad news for the Lightning and Canada's Olympic team, Stamkos was considered a lock to represent Canada at the 2014 Sochi Games..."
5-2 Wings. Bertuzzi, Kronwall, Datsyuk (2) and how about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford comes charging onto the ice in a crack and alcohol fueled rage and scores a late one for Detroit while trying to fight with a referee thinking they're a Globe and Mail reporter...
