#2279973 Wings meet Preds in First Round

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 April 2012 - 08:14 PM

Wings in 6. I am not afraid of the Preds and like that the match-up is closer to home, so time zone issues won't be a problem... or excuse. The Wings simply MUST play the entire game, and not the last 10 minutes of the 4rd, or they're done for, however. Preds will not roll over, by any stretch.

As for Peckerini, he has the edge on size -- Jimmy simply can't make himself into a 6'5" giant. I have no reservations about Jimmy Howard. None. He's proved over and over this season that he's the reason we're in a lot of games at all. Jimmy's quick and our D will step up. We have more depth across the board, aside from goal. Equalizer! Offense scares me more, however, I think several players have another gear (Mule, I am looking at you) which I sincerely hope they engage for this round.

Can the Wings bring it? Yes, I believe they can do this. One period, one game, one round at a time.

Go, Wings!!

Lol hilarious. Definitely the best part of the playoffs besides the hockey.

Your avatar still makes me laugh. I watched that game live and literally almost fell out of my chair laughing.

This thread is so amazing, I can't wait (since I have no ps skills, I depend on all you talented peeps)


#2277341 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blues 2 (SO)

Posted by puckloo39 on 04 April 2012 - 10:19 AM

Sounds like posturing to me. Like, if the Wings win then it doesn't mean anything because the Boos don't have anything to play for. Shenanigans. Why would this game not be huge to the Blues as well? They may have the division locked up but not the season-series against the Wings. The Blues have won 2 games against the Wings this year and lost 3. Neither team has lost on home ice in this series and I don't think the Blues want to start now. The Blues still have a lot to prove.

I love you. :)

Go, Wings! Get one of those things we don't mention and motor on strong to the playoffs. Can't wait!!

Jimmy Howard traveled with the team to New York to receive treatment on his sore groin.

What kind of treatment and why NYC? Or do we want to know the details? :P

Show up, Wings, don't let your goalie suffer out there. Win it for Nick, who needs to come back as soon as (perfect) humanly possible.

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 March 2012 - 12:53 PM

this makes me sad. I am going to my first game in 11 years at the Joe on March 30, and was really looking forward to seeing Helm play. Get well soon, kiddo.

Is there any doubt after that goal on Saturday night that this guy is absolutely invaluable???

Never a doubt. Pasha and Nick are the ones who steer this ship. We have some great young deckhands, but we all know who the Captain and first mate are. :thumbup:

Pasha is officially second best, therefore not worthy of mention. ;)

I stopped reading after he referred to 'parody' instead of 'parity'.

I think those terms might be interchangeable in the Blues' case. :cool:

I hope to see Wings playing at the Joe one day. That would be a dream come true for me.

I hope you get your wish! I am going back to the Joe for the first time in 11 years at the end of the month. ChelisChick and I are meeting WizardofOz30 and ACalltoArms at the games. Motown may never be the same!!

I know the team is missing Pasha and Nick out there, along with the rest of the injured... but I am so proud of them for what they've managed to do in spite of the tough situation. Strength in adversity! I am especially proud of Valtteri and how he's become the mini-Pasha we knew he could be. It all bodes well as we head toward the playoffs... just wait 'til everyone is back. :thumbup:

I am in the minority but i love the late games, even with the time change making me :blink: in the mornings. I can get home for the entire game, and not risk speeding tickets or worse trying to get home. :lol:

#2267092 3/6 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Flyers 3

Posted by puckloo39 on 06 March 2012 - 09:12 AM

Wings will be just fine tonight. I love seeing the young guys step up and play hard... knowing our veterans will be back. Nothing sounds serious in terms of the current injury bug, as in season ending, so I am grateful for that.

Poke a hole in Breezy early on, and we're good for a W!

Val, I am still waiting for that hattie! :D

#2266280 Happy Birthday Matt!

Happy birthday, Matt!! Hope you have a wonderful day! xo, loooooo

#2266134 The person below me game...

Posted by puckloo39 on 03 March 2012 - 03:03 PM

I have, but I am not so sure she is totally innocent. :P She hangs around with us, after all.

The person below me has a new member of their family.

#2265728 3/2 GDT : Wild 0 at Red Wings 6

Posted by puckloo39 on 02 March 2012 - 03:12 PM

I love games against the Wild. I get to see them on the tv. I can't wait! Woohoo!

Wings will win this despite spending the entire game on the wrong end of a 5 on 3 due to the ref thinking that Setoguchi was tripped every time he winds up on his face.

Wings: Mule, Miller, Mursak, MacDonald (not sure how he'll pull it off, but I'm on an M theme here)

Wild: Cullen (cuz he's from Moorhead, but only he gets to score for the Wild and not any other M boys. Just because I say so.)

I have this odd craving for M&Ms all of a sudden :blink:

Go, Wings!!

thanks, Matt... I depend on you, you know? ;)

I am enjoying staring at March 30 game, as I will be in Detroit for that one (and the April 1 Game, too). I haven't been to the Joe since 2001. I assume the bathrooms are still bad? :lol:
