 game recap 30 October 2009

I’m still wrestling with how I feel about this.  Oh, irritated that we lost, for sure, but am I less annoyed because we came back from a 0-4 hole to tie?  Or am I just as pissed as I would be usually, given the train wreck that was the first …

Red Wings won!  Red Wings won!  If we’re this excited about a win in October, can you imagine what Leafs fans felt like the other day when they won their first of the season?

Update before tonight’s game…

“So, he’s going to get …

Apologies for having gone AWOL for a short while.  Real life has gotten very busy as of late, compounded with some horrific losses by the Red Wings, and I’ve not had much time (or desire, to be perfectly honest) to blog.

…In the third, Samuelsson deftly picked off a brainless Brian Campbell drop pass which he saw coming from Kalamazoo. …

Congratulations to Nick.

I didn’t post any thoughts or comments on that absolute crap-show that was Tuesday’s game against Buffalo because to be honest, I didn’t really have any at the time other than, “Well that sucked.”  Majorly.  Probably three players on the entire team bothered to show up at all.
Defense needs to …

I’m not going to freak out, I’m not going to freak out, I’m not going to–
Oh hell.  I’m freaking out.
