#2598042 ECQF Game 3 GDT : Lightning 0 at Red Wings 3 - DET Leads series 2-1

Posted by TheXym on 21 April 2015 - 08:42 PM

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!

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.


#2593348 Why so negative?

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.

Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery to Erik Cole.


#2589308 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by TheXym on 05 April 2015 - 01:22 PM

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.

I'm visiting my parents, but I set the TV on a timer - hopefully letting my rabbit watch the game is good luck (holding him and petting him during the entire OT and shootout yesterday worked). I have the DVR set, but I hope to be logged on for most of the game tonight. Any detailed recap in the thread is appreciated.r


#2589231 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2 (SO)

Jimmy probably feels like the weight of a piano was lifted off his back. He looked rather confident on the first shooter, which was a difference, IMHO. The two goals seemed to rattle him, but Vanek had a heck of a move with waving the stick over top, then after the crossbar helped him he seemed to lock it down again. In any case, we held serve against the Bruins and Sens.

I believe we still have a game in hand, so the boys control their own destiny in any case. Even if they drop the extra game, they still do.

My new puppy I got yesterday seems to be lucky too. lol


Seems like it. :)

My dog will sprawl on the couch with me but won't watch the tv. Easter actually watched the game, and would actually grunt back (it sounded like "malp") when I'd say what happened. Yeah, I probably like my rabbit a bit too much. (We didn't name him, my wife's brother's fiancée did. We rescued him from her about four years ago - she'd kept him in a cage in the basement for four years and rarely let him out). My first rabbit, Lepus, used to watch the games too, come to think of it, even if he was in his cage.

Big ups to Jimmy for locking it down in the sudden death. I decided to see if my rabbit would be good luck, so I held him and petted him the whole time. Guess the bunny is joining me on the couch for the rest of the season.

Wow, bad penalty by Weiss. Kill this. I don't mind giving the Wild the extra point if it goes to OT but we need the two tonight.

I'd say Suter embellished just a wee bit, but the stripes will call that every time.
