#2474217 1/18 GDT: Kings 2 @ Red Wings 3 (Shootout)

Posted by TheXym on 18 January 2014 - 10:28 PM

Me and a few friends have been playing it online a lot again lately since it was free last month, still holds up as a solid MP game. 
 
We really needed this W tonight, even though the Kings got screwed (and i'm gonna hear about it from a big ego kings fan friend of mine tonight i'm sure) it's a victory in the books. 
 
Positives, Howard playing well again, Sheahan has really stepped up and Tatar has about cemented himself in this lineup permanently. 
 
Negatives, still way too many injuries, not scoring enough goals in regulation. 
 
We need more luck going forward until we get some key players back. Otherwise it will continue to be a rocky road. 

Great summary. BTW, if you get GOW3 we need to do a LGW coop campaign or horde marathon.

Take him straight into Gears of War and saw him in half!  And quickly!


Rofl, I'm a huge Gears fan.

Lancer FTW!


Nah, for the Hockey Gods, it'd have to be the retro lancer execution. :)

Sammy?

Jimmy is back. Cue evil laugh.


Cue Van Halen's "Top Jimmy" and turn it up to 11.

Well, I think we know this is going to end.

Got a point, thanks to O'Halloran. Never been able to say that before.


You COULD give the credit to the other ref, you know. ;)

Good pressure early by the kids in OT. I this goes to the shootout, I say let Jurco, Tatar, and Sheahan go followed by Z if needed.


Williams had Nyquist hogtied in the corner there.

Too bad Goose couldn't bury the feed right before.

Cheap way to get the point, I'd much rather win (or lose) on clean plays in a fairly and competently officiated game. That said, as many times as the bulls*** call has gone against the Wings, probability says it was due to go the Wings' way at some point.

I've always said both teams and their fan bases deserve a fairly and cleanly officiated game.

(I'll take the point though).

Bertuzzi looks like such a badass with his mirrored visor.


I smell a Robocop photoshop for the Todd. I do dig the visor as well.

Kings to their credit had nice blocks on the first 2 shots that were heading for the net for sure.


Great point, I think sometimes we get to looking at the game through our red-wing colored glasses a bit much and don't always give full credit to the opposition. (Halloran still sucks though ;) )

We get PP.

PP SCORE MORE GOAL

:lol:


Why does this make me think of Beavis with a Wings jersey pulled over his head?

Good pressure by the kids there. Sheahan looking very good tonight.

Kings hooking and holding all over the place and no call whatsoever.  Got away with 5 or 6 against the Z line.


Halloran is the ref, are you surprised? (Yes I'm still holding a grudge from the 2007 playoffs)

The next guy that f***s with Howie should get a blocker straight to the throat, full speed to blocker to ice.


Agreed. I wouldn't be surprised if Howie busted out the blocker b*tch slap on someone, but I like your idea better. :)

Wow, Quick being a ****** at center ice. Did they say Halloran is the ref? No wonder the Kings think it's open season on Howie.
