#2646113 1/4 GDT : Red Wings at New Jersey Devils, 7:00 EST

Some nice offensive pressure after Mrazek stands tall. Win this faceoff and pin them deep and get the insurance marker.

Finally a PP. they had better convert it since the even up call is coming.

Some decent o-zone presence early in the 3rd. Let's get Petr some more run support!

Again a 1 goal game.  I hope we can extend the lead


Fixed that for you. :)

NJ feed just showed a nice replay, said the Devils D were in good position, Richards' pass was just that good. Larkin owned Schneider with his deke.

I just want to take a moment to thank those who get to actually watch the Griffins and post the updates for those of us who don't have the opportunity to do so.


#2646014 America's Team?

Posted by TheXym on 04 January 2016 - 07:01 PM

After seeing the ratings for the WC the last 2 years, I have to wonder: Are the Detroit Red Wings the Dallas Cowboys of hockey?
How bout dem Red Wings!!


Interesting thought, but under the Iltich ownership no way do they completely s*** on a player or coach the way the Cowboys did with Tom Landry and replaced him with a coach whose college program had cheating scandals.

I agree, if the Wings get back to a final, the band wagoners will be all aboard.

Hopefully Larkin is OK to play and lights it up. Let's Go Wings! May you play hockey tonight like Jaco Pastorius played bass! (I just finished watching the biopic of him that Bob Trujillo produced, my wife finally understands why I play bass like she she understands why I love the Wings).

Great job by Petr to stay strong in the crease, lots of shot blocks by the D, great effort to hold the lead, though I'd have preferred an insurance marker.

With Boston and Montreal losing, this was a big ROW win to start the road trip.

Hopefully Larkin is back next game good as new.

Come on guys, keep pushing. Bring home the two points in regulation!

Anybody else think Smith is really wanting to chip in offensively?

There it is! Not a PP goal, but I will gladly take it. Glendening with a Holmstromish tip. Get the insurance goal guys.
Helm and Smith with the helpers.
Tried to get way too cute on that odd man rush and almost paid for it.

Come on guys, lock it down and get the insurance marker.

Ah, when you don't have your own traditions you just borrow ones from more successful franchises. You're welcome, Perds.


Just remember, Preds is Derps spelled sideways. :)

and there it is. Another star player out because of a cheap hit that not only went unpenalized, but unpunished as well, from the team or the NHL. Sure wish Toots was still on this team...


Damn shame nobody made the Devils punk pay for the cheap hit. Hopefully it isn't anything serious, and Dylark gets back on stride the next game and racks up a couple points.


I'm liking the lead, but I really want two or three insurance goals.


#2644265 That lazy Mantha....

Posted by TheXym on 24 December 2015 - 09:08 AM

Well said, Rich. Mantha in some ways is a victim of the hype machine. I'm pretty optimistic based on what those who actually watch the Griffs have been reporting.


#2644258 Anybody think this is legit?

If you can't get what you want from sportsK, I bought my Konstantinov and Fedorov pro jerseys from River City Sports out of Winnipeg years ago and their service was great.
