Abby on a line with Glenny and Sheahan was a stroke of genius on Blashill's part. The TB magic triplet line - Johnson, Killorn and Kuchie-Kuchie - got ZERO shots on goal in Game 3. That line scored 7 (seven) goals in the first two games. Abby is the key.
Sounds like Vladdy is in the room right now. If that can't motivate them nothing will. LGW.
you would hope, even though none of the current players ever played when he did. I wish they would put the old motto back up, they seem to have lost a bit of the responsible play since Blash removed it.
Q is probably hurt... sprained his beard, perhaps. Wings will win this one, I think. If they are not embarrassed and ANGRY about the stupidity of the last game in particular - from the officiating to their own bone-headedness - they really don't stand a chance. I am not bashing Blashill as the total reason they are so ... well, bad. The players have the responsibility out there on the ice.
Mrazek will have a LOT to prove tonight... I am squarely in his corner and in Jimmy's as well. The losses in Tampa were certainly not on Jimmy. Challenge is out for Nyquist and Tatar - if he's playing - to show up! Now or never, Wings.
I was glad to see Abby kinda lose it. About time - Larkin and Richards were both targeted, Datsyuk lost a tooth three feet from an official (shrug...) Should Abby face supplemental discipline? Hell, no. It's hockey, not a prom. The Blots players piled on him, and Abby fought back.
Love how the Bolts are lily-white and oh-so-innocent. No wonder Stevie Y won't show his face.
OK, I was deprived of hockey on Wednesday - out of town working in Omaha... and no way to watch. So the Wings were sad, and didn't win... but they tried. I am home and get to watch tonight. Having sacrificed another bit of my so-called sanity and not being able to see Game One - the hockey gods owe me a big W here tonight. Let's go Wings - take it home tied up, then keep going!!
wow.. that was a difficult choice, all of them are disgustingly charming in their own right... the lines in Contestant #1... pure brilliance and hilarity. You're all amazingly ridiculous and I love you.
