Glad to see Hank is OK. I would love to see Helm and AA together, talk about a speedy duo. Hopefully they tighten up the sloppy play from Toronto. Then again, how many times have we seen the Wings play down to the level of opponents then come back strong against the tough teams? I'm thinking that happens again.
AA gets his first point, Larkin pops one and adds to his league leading +/-, Tatar embarrasses the Dallas D again for a beauty of a goal, and the wins streak continues.
Bill, thanks for stepping in with a GDT post.
Good luck to us! We're gonna need it. I would ecstatically accept 1 point. Dallas are the 1940's Tiger tanks of the NHL right now.
I really hope Hank isn't hurt, he has had a heck of a start to the season, and I was really looking forward to seeing him healthy all season. If he is, somebody needs to punch Smith in the yambag for being a f**ktard and giving his captain his hardest hit of the season.
Interesting comment about the new GR coach possibly stunting his development and wanting to reunite him with Blashill. I haven't seen any Griffs games, but maybe one of you who has can address it? I know their record has not been good.
I've been using the Bowflex since Labor Day pretty faithfully (2 days on, one day off for recovery). It still works well for me. I started with 80 lbs resistance per side, now I'm up to 135 lbs resistance per side (so the pull down bar or double arm exercises are 270 lbs resistance). My weight has remained static, but I've lost an inch off my waist and my chest and arms are noticeably showing more muscle mass and definition.
If anyone has suggestions for shredding the abs, let me know (I do ab raises with straps on my pull-up bar). Planks come to mind, but I'm not a big fan of them.
What are you looking to accomplish with your workout, Nerve Damage? You mentioned surgery, so whatever you've had would likely affect what you are able to do, maybe Dumbbells or resistance bands would work for you. Men's Health magazine is a good source for workout ideas, they should have some things on their website as well.
Star Wars side note...Does 'Luke' become the next 'Darth'?
I think there is a good chance he's a Sith. Not in any posters, not in any trailers, you don't see the face of the Sith in the trailers. Yoda said if you leave before finishing your training it will lead you to the dark side. It's also the kind of curveball JJ Abrbams would throw.
Of course, Babs may feel like coaching in Toronto feels like being on the dark side. Still he is getting paid enough to afford the blood pressure meds.
Hopefully Luke and Drewbacca pick up a couple of points tonight.
Great heads up play by Larkin to send it back when four Leafs converged on him. Reimer wants that back I'm sure. How sweet is it that Hank scored 300 against the Leafs and Babcock? I'm looking forward to Franzen's Instagram congratulations message.
Awesome GDT graphic as always! I've got burgers and my infamous bacon steaks on the grill for the game (bacon sliced at number 19 on the slicer, in honor of Stevie Y, about 4 oz per slice with dry rub that carmelizes into a bbq sauce as the fat cooks on the bacon). The Wings will be even more awesome than that against the Make Beliefs just to tick off Babs. Franzen's instagram will blow up the Internet. Jurassic Mrazek will stalk the puck like a velociraptor, rack up another assist or two. Hank gets number 300 (this... Is... Detroit hockey!). The team gets a total of 5 goals in honor of Lidstrom going into the hall of fame.
Let's Go Wings!
Anyone know appx. what time puck drop will be?
If it is a typical broadcast, 7:08. I think there will be a delay due to the HOF stuff.
