#2533977 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 10 August 2014 - 03:16 PM

I'll also throw in for March 26.


Although this year one game that was really exciting to watch was that game against Pitt where Alfie had the game winner with less than a second left in OT.  Detroit takes the 2-0 lead and you feel good, then they let Pitt score 3 straight and you kind of think, "well they've given games away all year."  Then Detroit scores 2 straight and you feel good again cuz you think they just came back and there's no way they give it up again.  Then Pitt ties it with like 4 minutes left or something and your stomach just drops.  And then the PP in OT for Pitt, then Alfie scores with less than a second to win it.  Amazing roller coaster of a game.

Also, when it was tied, Legwand took that stupid 5 min penalty to guarantee the Penguins a PP for the rest of regulation.  Just a great win, especially in a year where every win counted and they were without their two best players.

#2523178 Report: NHL to have 5 outdoor games in 2014-15.

I don't see the point in putting these games in warm climates. It's an even more gimmick than putting it in a traditional market. The need for 3 games is just rubbish as well, completely destroys the purpose of the winter classic. oh well


That's what I was thinking as well.  The LA/ANA game peaked my interest the most out of all the Stadium Series games this year, just because I wanted to see how it would go.  Now that I've seen I don't care anymore.  I think part of the spectacle is the snow and cold and people sitting through it to watch the game.  The Winter Classic this year was unreal for that, I just wish I could go back and do it again!

#2470448 WinterFest/ Winter classic Final thoughts

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 04 January 2014 - 12:26 AM

What an amazing game/atmosphere.  I couldn't stop smiling the whole game. It was amazing.  I was row six section 1 right next to the tunnel on the Leafs side and it was absolutely awesome.  The view of the rink wasn't the greatest but I got to high five and talk to many people who are "celebs" in the hockey community.  The end sucks, and i've had one person try to ruin the event for me by rubbing it it, but it was so amazing that no one can take away how awesome the game was.  


I didn't have any problems with the bathroom.  I went up once and it was a pretty long line, but I was in and out in less than five minutes.  I also was in the Leafs section and the fans around me were great.  I talked to the guys behind me (Leafs fans) for the whole game and had a good time.  Only had one Leafs fan try talkin smack on the walk out of the stadium but many Wings fans were there to point out the Leafs "recent" Cup woes haha.

#2467113 Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 2 Discussion (12/21)

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 21 December 2013 - 11:05 PM

Second episode about 1000x better than the first one.  I still laugh at the producers creating drama over which team is worse, along with the dramatic, sad music... like a piano solo at funeral.  Very dirge-like indeed.  Best scene was Kronner and the kids... and the Leafs steak dinner where they played credit card roulette.  :lol:

Whoever they play, I hope they sign Bryzgalov for 24/7. 


That would be a humongous big mistake for their team, but awesome for us

KH just talked about how he traded a 2nd round pick for Brad Stuart and a 1st for Kyle Quincey and it made me chuckle

#2422573 17yr old hockey player charged for on-ice assault.

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 26 June 2013 - 11:09 PM

Kid started it. Other kid took it WAY too far. Still don't think he should be criminally charged. Just banned from the league or something equally serious but not criminal.
I just think it's a slippery slope to press charges on a hockey fight.


#2421983 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 24 June 2013 - 10:23 PM


Isn't this what everyone said after they won a few years ago? Seemed to work out just fine for them...

That's not what they are talking about.  The window for compliance buyouts opens 48 hours (i think) after the finals are over

#2420810 Grand Rapids Griffins Win Calder Cup! 5-2 win in game 6

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 19 June 2013 - 12:48 PM

I know a lot of people were mentioning the Nyquist/Andersson/Dekeyser/Lashoff journey, but how about the journey of Petr Mrazek.  Watching him play it's tough to remember this is his first year pro.  Seems like last year he was playing those games in the ECHL not this year.  Dude had some unbelievable saves at the end of game 6.

I'm upset about this game, but for some reason I just have no doubts about the Wings winning Game 7.
