#2654512 2/23 Tacky GDT Columbus Blue Jackets @ Detroit Red wings 7:30 PM Est

Posted by vladdy16 on 23 February 2016 - 02:07 PM

Lidstrom in the house?  And people who live nearby won't attend...?  :confused:   That's a shame, the place should be full of appreciative fans, if for no other reason than to honor the former Captain. 

 

I would love to predict that the Wings have this one and two points, but it's NBC again.  We haven't won very many under their mouldy, biased coverage.  Those of us far away with gamecenter get no coverage even if FSD is broadcasting, so have to hope the NBC affiliates show the game. 

 

Too bad the stadium game this weekend is blighted by NBC too.  I am sure it's all a coincidence   :g:

I will be in attendance this evening!  I'll represent for those who can't.

If you can find CBC, Saturday's game is scheduled to be broadcast through them as well.

A few years ago the NHL Network had a little 'spotlight' on Canadian fans from Ontario that make their way into Buffalo.

 

Was sorta interesting; many of them meet up at their usual 'hangouts' (bars/restaurants) for pre-game meals, and libations.

 

Many of them despise the Leafs :lol:

Butting in, saw about the Crosby Puppy sign and wonder if it has anything to do with this https://www.nhl.com/...llenge/c-799679

I went to my first game in Buffalo yesterday.  Not sure why I haven't before (I live in west end Greater Toronto Area), so it's actually pretty close for me and I've flown out of that airport to Orlando the few times we've gone to Disney.  It's not closer than going to Toronto of course, but it's much cheaper.  The only headache can be the boarder line up, but it was okay.

 

Anyway, the funny thing is, the game was PIT vs BUF and they sang the Canadian anthem.  I didn't think about this until about halfway through when I realized there wasn't a Canadian team playing.  I'm guessing they do this because there are so many people that come from Ontario for their games (I'm guessing about 1/2 the crowd).  I've been to several games in other US cities and they'd only play the Canadian anthem if a Canadian team was playing (same for games in Canada, only US anthem if a US team is playing).

 

Has anyone seen this anywhere else?  Detroit is a convenient trip as well for people in South Western Ontario, but there wouldn't be the same volume of Ontarians at Wings' games as there are in Buffalo I'd guess.

 

EDIT: I forgot the main reason for my post....thought this was weird....a few rows in front of me (very close to the glass as my seats were pretty good) someone had a sign that read: "If Crosby scores, Datsyuk gets a puppy" - I mean, even if it was PIT vs DET, the sign still wouldn't have made sense to me.

What did Quincey tell Smith about his 2 on 1 defending?  

I think there's a joke coming up... what, what?

Kyle Quincey's quote when talking about Howard after yesterdays game. 

 

"I told him through the 11 years of on an off (as a teammate) that might have been the best game I've ever seen him play," Kyle Quincey said. "I'm happy that he had such a great game and hopefully he can keep going with that. If he does that, we're in great shape."

I'm quite content getting the single point. This game was lost if it weren't to Howard who played great. If he keeps it up we are back at 1A 1B on the goalie position which would be great going into the playoffs - if we make it.

Besides, it should raise his trade value considerably.

While I believe Howard is still a quality netminder I feel his inconsistency this season has made him nearly impossible to move unless he's part of a package (like adding Nyquist and/or Tatar).

 

I still think Holland will keep Howard for the remainder of the season...Maybe at the draft a move is made?

I would say he played well, not awesome but that's just me. Was a surprisingly physical game tonight, I enjoyed that.

I'd say he played awesome, easily his best game all season. The end result was unfortunate.

Lousy scoring Wings prevented Howie to get a win and first star which he well deserves. Five stars to Howie.

Howard actually playing like he wants his job back.  I like that.  

Maybe Holland threatened Jimmy with a trade to Toronto?
