If Heatley takes a penalty, I hope the arena dj plays a certain Smashmouth song, that would be too funny.

Were losing our mojo. Need someone not named Nyquist to step up.


Helm and Miller are both due. Miller in particular deserves to be rewarded with a point for his recent play.

And Edzo is just doing his job doing at what he does , he doesn't hate the red wings...come on

edit:

Wild score!

Saw that coming. Marginal call leads to the goal.

Uh, is it just me or is NBC being very nice to the Wings tonight?  It's like I'm in an alternate universe or something.


No Edzo. End of story, imho.

Guy shot it right where his blocker was going to be, he doesn't get credit for that


Ah, so it's an average save? ;)

Lol at the swear filter blocking Tarnstrom's first name.

you seem to have a lot of confidence in your team. good on you.
not taking anything away from your enthusiasm but you have pittsburgh
coming up. not going to be an easy task... ;)


Wings beat them a few days ago. The Pens' minor league team is near me. There are two kinds of Pens fans I've dealt with over the years. The ones who suffered through the dark days of Dick Tarnstrom leading them in scoring from the blue line (I've had some great hockey chats with them), and those who bandwagoned after Crosby and Malkin came along (the vast majority of whom run their mouths and don't know squat about hockey). All of their tears were delicious after the buzzerbeater a few days ago. ;)

That said, I do expect the Pens to show up with their A game to avenge that loss. It should be a good game in any case.

Yeah I gotta give 'em props. They've not been the disaster I've become accustomed to them being. They're probably as glad as we are that Edzo has f***ed off.


Probably more so... how would you like to have to hold your tongue sitting next to him while his oral diarrhea is polluting the airwaves subtly interfering with the broadcast quality?

True, true. I wasn't trying to say he did it on purpose. It's just it sounds like people want preferential treatment for the Wings, and not consistency league-wide like you would think.


I want the refs to call a game fairly and accurately. Both teams and their fanbases deserve that. I don't want a cheap win due to crap officiating just like I don't want to lose due to a bogus call.

I am going through a lot of the Macallan during the last few games due to Goose and the boys.

Maybe Nyquist should get a vodka endorsement from... Grey Goose?

Nice kudos to Howard from the NBC studio crew and Keith Jones mentioning Babs as a coach of the year candidate.

No Edzo on an NBC broadcast is a beautiful thing. More, please!

Goose on the breakaway for number two! Beautiful block by Tatar to spring him.

Weak ass call there, even Pierre and Doc agree. The poison dwarf must have made a phone call. Edzo calling it subtle goaltender interference from home.

So far the boys have weathered the Min storm well. Time to counterpunch them in the yambag with a goal.
