Caught a break with the power play. Time to deke Gustavsson so hard he pulls a groin. (I actually like the guy, but F the Bruins).

How did they not call Krug for piling on Larkin like that?

Saw that coming after the PP fail. They had some good looks, but to no avail.

Just checking in from Bdubs in Dickson City, Pa.... Had to pick up some stuff and my best friend came along, watching the game eating some wings, rocking the old school Konstantinov jersey.

Saw the disallowed goal. Must have been intent to blow by the ref, since they certainly do blow.

Let's Go Wings!

Thanks for the reply. Because of the surgeries it's hard to do push ups or exercises in which I lay facing down. I think you're right on point with the dumbbells and resistance bands. I've found some routines by Steven Wong from Wongmania and the guys from Hockey Training on youtube and think I'll start from there. Just wanted to check if all of you guys hit the gym or have a more at home workout routines.


I work out at home. No gym in my small town, not worth the 35 minute drive to go to the nearest one that is good. I get up about a hour early and do my workout, catching up on the news on my iPad between sets.

Jimmy's eyes were lookin a little crossed.
Who do we call up?
Coreau?
McCollum?


I'd guess McCollum, hopefully it doesn't come to that.

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.


Does that make Pavel a T-34? ;)

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.

Kindl!


He read the play beautifully, went in, and won it. How happy is he to get the OT winner against Babs and the Leafs?

Saw that coming with the broken stick. Petr deserved better. You can't expect the goalie to wear a backpack and carry the team the way they did tonight.

Somebody punch John Keating in the yambag for jinxing it during intermission.

So you mean he is a Jar Jar kid?


Now that is just mean. :)

Yes - he would be.
 
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.
