Oh God that was sweet to watch. I love a good Sharks breakdown. The team with no offense not only gets a shutout, but scores 4 friggin' goals in the process. Forwards? We don't need no stinking forwards!
Yeah, the Helm hit on Jovanovski looked clean as a whistle to me, but I'm willing to give the refs the benefit of the doubt there since Jov and Tippett were so teed off about something. What I'm NOT willing to let go is that nobody called anything on Jov grabbing Helm's frigging throat. That's un-mofoing-acceptable, and out of all the stupid sh** that happened in the game, that's what's going to stick with me because I still can't believe it. I don't care if Helm cross-checked, slashed, boarded, and then sat on him, that's just not what you do, and I can't believe the refs let that go.
I would always wait until the game was done and then braid the bracelet. this will be a lot faster though haha.
I got Red and White beads and then Silver ones to put in between the series!
I just tied mine in the back with a knot that I can undo and redo. I looked for a chain too and all of that and couldnt find anything small enough to fit through the beads. So far the knot has been totally fine and I havent had any problems, we'll see I guess!
Nice!! I like the silver bead. I gotta get some better spacers...I just used a couple left over from one of my mom's beading projects, and they're nothing special. Completely forgot about those when I went to get the red and white ones, oops. I like how yours is big - it adds some interest while we're waiting for a few more game beads.
Yeah, I tied mine in a knot, too. The cord is leather, so it's not too slippery, and it stays tied just fine. If you get beads with big enough holes, you might be able to find a clasp that they'll fit over, but mine have pretty small holes, so it's a knot for me.
That'd be great if the Wings could get Mikey a Cup. I know he's already got one, but tell me it wouldn't be special for him to win in his hometown (well, hopefully...let's do it at home this time), playing for his home team. And judging by the reaction to his goal against the Pens a couple of weeks ago, I'm sure us fans would make it pretty special for him, too!
Oooo. Kayyy. PLEASE let's win; I am so frigging frustrated by the arrogance and dipsh*ttery of the Hawks' announcers that I just want a win to shove in their faces. Hey, maybe that's a strategy Babs could use - make the Wings listen to the Chicago feed of last night's game. Please, Wings, end their season, make their announcers eat a big slice of humble pie, send all the fans home crying - JUST WIN!!
I'm just going to come out and say that I think they're going to lose because the Hawks will be fighting hard to keep their playoffs spot, but I am hoping like heck that we embarrass the crap out of them and give them an extended spring break. If we don't win these two, I'm not going to stress as long as they show more focus in the playoffs, so it's not a big deal at all in the long run, but I do enjoy the smell of burning bird on a Friday evening, nonetheless.
Forward - Nash would be my first choice. My other thought that's been floating around my head for a while is Dustin Brown. Now, I know some Kings fans aren't enthralled with him because he hasn't turned out to be a 40 goal scorer or the biggest star on the team, but I like how hard he plays. I think we could use that kind of guts and physicality on the team. I wouldn't take him over Nash, of course, but I've been thinking about it for a while and wanted to get it out of my system. Whaddya think - am I nuts?
Defense - Webaaaarrrrrrrr!!!
Goalie - Lundqvist. Sure wouldn't say no to Miller, though.
LOL. And if the wings hadn't miraculously scored a goal by pure luck hit 2 edm players, the wings would have lost on arguably the worst goal Howard has given up this year.
Look at the big picture there pal. Howard has a horrid GAA and a horrid SV%.
This is the most retarded post I've seen here in awhile.
First, don't compare yourself to Howard LOL. You're not an NHL goalie dude, so you are expected to let soft goals in. Second, Howard doesn't play solid. Howard has a horrible GAA. The real fact remains that the wings have not played well and have not been consistent at all over a long period of time, yet you're focused on a very lucky win yesterday, against the 3rd worst team in the league.
People would be singing a very different tune today if we hadn't gotten purely lucky at the end there, VERY DIFFERENT. It would have been a 1-0 loss on the worst goal Howard's ever given up, and people would have been down on the wings offense, and their continued lack of defense, and continued lack of 60 minute play.
IT WAS EDMONTON! Actually, it wasn't even Edmonton, it was the AHL Edmonton team. It was a joke that the wings couldn't score any goals against that team yesterday.
LOOK at the big picture.
So it's Howard's fault that the Wings had to get a lucky shot to save their butts? Right. It couldn't be because the rest of the team wasted most of the three periods and could only come up with 1 goal with seconds left on the clock (well, it would've been 2, but that's life), could it? Also, I don't get why everybody's all miffed because the ONE (I repeat, one) goal he let in was a soft one. What difference would it have made if he'd let in one of the Oilers' better shots or that one, as long as he kept it to just one? Yeah, sure, he could've saved that one and got a shutout, but people in hell want ice water and all that. The rest of the team cannot rely on their goalie to post a shutout just to give them a fighting chance. They should be able to rely on him to be good, but not to stand on his head.
Plus, I am not looking at the big picture for a reason; everybody here was complaining about his performance in this game, so that's what I focused on. I KNOW he has horrible stats in general - nobody here's going to deny that - but it would not have been his fault if the Wings had lost this game.
So Howard does one better than last time and keeps it down to one goal against, and we're STILL complaining about him? Yeah, he really sucks, doesn't he? I can't believe he let in that one whole soft goal. I mean, there's no reason he couldn't have got us a shutout so that the rest of the team could've taken the night off...what a lazy bum. Trade him.
I won't be going to this one - the "boo" reason is because I'm working until 8, but the "yay" reason is because I'm going to be seeing them play the Pens at the one and only Joe in 3 weeks!! I agree, it's payback time for December! I like the Kings, as far as other hockey teams go, but not when they beat my Wings, so let's kick some black and purple butt and make them just a little more black and purple!
What surprised me about the fight was how many swings Ericcson got in (whether they were solid hits or not) before Ott tried to do anything to defend himself. I always thought for the amount of crap he gave out, he must know how to defend himself against getting some back, but jeez, the guy's just as bad as Perry! Still, props to Ericsson, even if Ott isn't all he's cracked up to be...I'm sick of that guy's BS, and E did something about it and made him embarrass the heck out of himself in the process.
