Just got back from the game. Beer was half price so I enjoyed that generously.
Howard played a great game. The offense struggled to maintain any kind of pressure in the Dallas end, and the forechecking definitely needs work. Detroit didn't play like they were busy trying to call in a Pizza Hut delivery order while the game was going on like in St. Louis, but the urgency wasn't as astute as it was in Columbus.
Looks great, Mike. You've set the bar high for the year. Hopefully, The Wings can come out looking as good as the GDT. I'm expecting a whole lot of odd man rushes, some breakaways and plenty of blown coverages. Expecting an 80's era score tonight. Hope Brunner gets at last one tonight, to pop his cherry, and hope Franzen finds this game exciting enough to score. Drop the puck. LGW.
Mule needs to step it up this year. No more being one of the top power forwards in hockey for a two week span and then be completely MIA for the next two weeks.
