sorry folks, i'm going to this game tonight and detroit has never won when i've been there.
blame it on me.
Here's to a win and bucking that trend! Wings need to come up huge here, Toronto is due for a win and it isn't going to come easy. -Nyquist & Tatar I hope continue their surge here LGW
well, they finally won when i was on hand....good but nervous game. howard made a couple of huge saves. franzen was slightly better but still pretty useless. the leafs fans booing at the end of the game was priceless. on talk radio after the game every fan is ready to blow it all up.
I think Ken said during the game "maybe" Monday for Pav. Of course, he has been close for weeks now. I am to the point where I would be surprised if he's back before the Olympics.
i would rather him not play in the olympics. i'm really leaning towards the nhl bowing out all together and leave the olympics to the amateurs.
Ya If it was a groin or muscle pull you wouldn't expect that he would be out a month (or at least played a few times here and there and re-aggregated it). From the sounds of things in the media updates he hasn't been close to a comeback and then had a setback either. If it was a foot/stress fracture I could believe that too. Not sure why they can't release the actual cause when it is clear he won't be back until its healed - this isn't the playoffs where you hide your injuries while playing injured.
i was trying to pinpoint anything i could as well. considering he was in the shootout in the WC. it reminds me of the SC finals against pitt when he was getting a charlie horse drained and everyone was very hush hush.
For people who went, how was the view? I always thought the downside of playing in a giant football stadium would be that you couldn't see the puck way in the back.
i was at the very top of the stadium. view was ok, spent time watching on the big screen for sure.
but luckily for us (me and two leaf fan friends) had such amazing tickets. we didn't even know until we got there that we ended up with box seats. no lines for beer or bathrooms and all the heat we needed. to boot it was the leafs alumni box. sat with gary roberts, bob mcgill and family, lanny mcdonald, brad may. was cool to talk with brad about that goal he scored that they didn't count years ago when playing with the wings.
overall i would not change that experience for anything...pregame, post game, was all awesome.
Please win. Living in Southwestern Ontario there is nothing worse than a Maple Leafs win over the Red Wings.
Prediction: Detroit 3 Toronto 1 (Datsyuk (x2), Tatar)
jesus, tell me about it. i've been to the last 2 games in toronto and we've lost both. no matter how good the wings are it seems we always lose to the leafs and it'll probably continue tonight. just so my friends can rub it in my face.
