Nice bit coming from Ott.

#2257109 22 is the actual record

Posted by rrasco on 15 February 2012 - 10:29 AM

That's not even logical. The record was 20. So if Boston was forced to play a home game on the road, that would mean the record is 21, not 22.

Unless they won the home game following the 'road' game. Which was not specified either way.

Why does everything have to go so slow at work on game days? I just want to get off work so I can go home, grab some buds, and watch some Red Wings hockey!

I have to budget my money as well, but if it's in the realm of possibility for me to manage to get a ticket and make it up to Detroit, I'm doing it. Do I wish they were going to put tickets on sale like normal? Absolutely. You have to realize that if there is a high profile event like this, you are going to have to pay to go, and probably more than $100. I would expect tickets to be a minimum of $100. I bought tickets to game 5 of the SCF in 09, sat in section 204, by myself, and paid $300 for that one ticket which I bought directly from Ticketmaster at face value. I also needed a $500 plane ticket to make it up there as well. I spent a grand to see one hockey game. I wanted to go and I had to pay for it, but I went and had the time of my life.

There will be tickets and yes I understand it sucks to pay more than face value, but if that's what it comes down to, I'll do it. How do you even know the scalpers will end up with all the tickets in the lottery? They're chances are just as good as yours, technically. If you're so worried about it, buy season tickets and you will get first stab at them. I wish I lived in Detroit, I'd already have season tickets, bar none. My point is, if you want to go, you can.

Sorry HT0001, didn't mean to steal your thunder. It was getting late so I wasn't sure if you were going to be around to post.

I ain't HT001 and this ain't the normal GDT, but you may treat it as such, if you'd like. Here's to continuing the home streak to 18. LGRW!

Blues play Nashville tonight. Hopefully they settle that one in regulation. At least we started building a lead and we need to widen it with another 2 pts tonight. LGRW!

FWIW, I'm recording NHL 36 prior to the game and will post it somewhere everyone can get to it.

Let's go Wings!

Is it okay to ask someone to create a video file of this episode and upload this to a site like depositfiles? I don't have DVR anymore and I'm sure I'll want to watch this again and again.

I'll see what I can do for you.

Where are you reading that? stltoday.com? That place is a mess of idiocy.
It's best not to read that place.

It's on your site too.

Stuart only got his elbow up a little bit, but that shouldn't matter - he aimed at the head and got it. That would be a suspension of Polak did it to Lidstrom, but since the redwing is the one putting on the hit, we probably won't see a video explanation of the non-suspension.

GOOD CLEAN BODY CHECK?? WHAT?? Clearly hits him in the head first.

Classy guys you have over on your site too. Is this what happens when you let children on the Internet?

Next game the Blues need to pound on Lidstrom, even if it mean taking penalties, the way the Wings pounded on Pietrangelo. It's not like the refs are going to call all the penalties anyway, considering they called none when Pietrangelo was clearly interfered with twice and took a shot to the head the way Abdelkator took a shot to the head, but the Wings player won't wind up with the 3-game suspension Cole received.

They need to run Howard in the next game. Just straight up plow his ass over. Take the penalties. Take the suspension. It's worth it.

We need to do a little Tkachuk to Hasek action.

They had two chances to take out Howard. First, Backes decides to be a gentleman and run into the goal instead of Howard, then I forget who gently bumps him from behind when they could really drop him since he was playing the puck behind the goal. Next time, they should just bury him. There's no sense in playing clean against Detroit. If you're gonna get s*** calls, might as well justify them by actually doing something worth a penalty.

f***....we have to listen to Edzo tonight? I would *almost* prefer to not watch the game in that case.

Nobody around here liked the fact that the pens and flyers were in it twice either, but you're not going to hear much complaining that the Wings are in a WC again, especially after both PA teams have already done so. We're just following suit. You're point has been made, but to be honest, not many people care about the Blues or if they ever participate in a WC so you're efforts are futile.
