Yeah saw a bit of an interview with DeKeyser, he said Chelli was coaching him there in GR.

 

Oh, nice. I hadn't heard that - though it makes sense.

 

Another great video from the Griffins before tonight's game —

Random trivia for anyone who'll be attending tonight's game - it may go without saying but - it looks like Chris Chelios will be there. I just passed him having lunch downtown.

We're you at the game?  I thought he looked pretty good but I was trying to watch the feed.


I was, yeah. He logged a lot of minutes, so I guess to say he didn't look great might come across harsh. It's not that he was bad, but had a couple of miscues here and there. Played a good game, but it wasn't among his best performances. At one point he whiffed a writer and then fell down trying to recover the puck, which certainly wasn't a highlight. But I wouldn't go so far as to call it a bad game.

Syracuse pressured the defense a lot, though. I was impressed with their overall play; but the Griffins stood up to the task and played better as the game progressed.

Man, the Crunch is a good team.

Babcock and company are in attendance.

When I first saw it I thought it went five hole. How does the Barons goalie let that in short side? Jurco's speed must have made it hard for him to stay on his angle


The video doesn't do it much justice, he was absolutely flying.

I never noticed until this game, but apparently Journey is also played at Griffins games, and just like at Wings games they like to yell the "Detroit" in the opening verse.
 
Only difference is that they've played the whole song at the Griffins game


Barons lost a player but take the lead.


Yeah, played before the third period every game. I'm at the game now. Largest crowd I've seen all playoffs. Getting into it now.

Passed Joakim Andersson on the sidewalk on my way to work earlier. Didn't look too happy. Figured I'd let him be.

It looks like a Stanley cup final between the hawks and penguins is all but inevitable. If this nightmare scenario comes to fruition who do you root for?

 

The Tigers.

While this is a disappointing end, this team went further and did more than I could have ever hoped or expected.

 

Cheers to a good season. Especially in this, a rebuilding year.
