There's one thing I absolutely hate about our power play. More often than not we spend a minimum of thirty seconds cycling the puck. Just passing back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth waiting for the perfect opportunity to shoot. Maybe I just prefer a different style of hockey but if it were up to me I would throw the puck on the net as often as possible. At least when you shoot at the net it generates a chance to score. Not always a good chance, but a chance none the less. I at least prefer to have the chance rather than spending all two minutes just passing the puck around getting a total of two shots in what should be two minutes of free offense.
Oh that and then there are just those power plays where it seems like WE are the ones down a man. But that's a whole different animal.
watching the babcock interview from this morning, and he mentioned nick will play with either white or kronwall, and Q will play with big E. so where is stuart? Has there been any talk of him being scratched tonight?
I would assume that Stuart is playing with either White or Kronwall, which ever is not playing with Lids.
My roomate is a massive Canucks fanboy so Ive got a case of beer and bragging rights riding on this game ... Pavel out is a HUGE blow, but f**k it, get it done boys! Really got a gut feeling this will be a playoff series this spring. This game could be the deciding factor in home ice advantage.
Even if you lose, just remind him how good that beer must taste coming out of a Stanley Cup since Vancouver doesn't have one. There's no possible way to come back from that.
I remember a few months ago someone said they stream all the Red Wings games? Is that site still around? TSN didn't listen to my request to put this game on, so I'll watch it on that Red Wings game site (if someone can post the link), sportlemon.tv, or ilemi.me
