Just finished the DVR of this game since I had a gig playing bass in the pit for a local production of Cinderella, and I'm thrilled to see the Wings kicked as much butt as I did in the pit.

Mrazek is showing serious beast potential, and it was awesome to see Miller pop one.

Here's kudos for Petr Mrazek's 2nd career playoff shutout, and to hoping the boys seal the deal at home in just as decisive a way.

Missed the game due to a pit rehearsal (no wifi or cell coverage) then grabbing a late dinner with my wife, got home in time for the empty netter.

Congrats to Petr Mrazek for his first NHL playoff shutout, and to the boys for the win for a series lead. Keep it going in game four!

Great GDT graphic as always, thanks for your high quality work, Mike!

If Petr stands tall early and our boys draw first blood, things could get very interesting. We all know what they need to improve from game one, and I have this feeling that Hank is due for a game in beast mode.

Sadly, I'm stuck at a rehearsal from 12-4 today, and it's a 35 minute drive home, so I should be able to catch the third, but I will be depending on all of you for the recaps for the first two.

Let's Go Wings!

Not mine, saw it on twitter...

The Force is strong with this one, indeed. Most excellent! Thanks for the share, forward my like as well.

As was said previously, it's great to have our goalie steal one. Big ups to Petr Mrazek for his first NHL playoff win. I haven't watched the DVR yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Keep it rolling. Getting Abby back for game 2 would be a nice plus. If we can draw first blood early in game 2 and Petr is strong early, could the team be getting in Tampa Bay's head? Nice of the D to be stepping up in a better way. How did Marchenko look? Does it seem like he will stay in for game 2?

If too many men calls are this year's JUCK F**KING POTT, I don't want them. That kind of mental error is like kicking your teammates in the yambag. Kill this.

Wings go to eleven.
I hate warm beer.

+1 for the Spinal Tap reference. As long as the Wings have the rock knob cranked to 11, and the suck knob all the way down and not vice versa, I can see the upset happening.

Also kudos for the earlier Ric Flair reference.

I'm just waiting for FlashyG's contribution. :D

Agreed. To call them epic is generally an understatement, the guy is seriously talented. (No pressure, or anything, Flashy!)

I will have the iPad on during chorale rehearsal tonight (I'm hoping I don't have to cover the piano so I can keep the feed going - a benefit of mastering Solfege and sight singing when they have a rehearsal during the playoff drive).

Here's hoping for a decisive win to send a message and Tatar gets to 30. Maybe the injury to Cole will be a rallying point - seemed like the guys liked him as soon as he came over. I just hope the refs don't make a bunch of ticky tack calls, and if the Canadiens start the diving act that they a) don't fall for it and b) call the dives.

Doctor's office today..some guy with a Leafs jacket sees my Wings hat and says "Nice hat, damn you guys suck right now!!" 
I had no response. Just a dumbfounded stare and a head shake. Leaf fans are a plague on society.

The easy response it that it is only a temporary ailment, whereas it has been a chronic malady since 1967 for the Leafs.
