 summer speculation 12 August 2010

As I’m sure most of you were also doing last night, I watched the NHL Network air the ABC/ESPN broadcast of the 2002 Stanley Cup Game 5 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.  Gary Thorne and Bill Clement kept reiterating the star power, and the to-be Hall of Fame players.  That …

 game recap 10 January 2010

Great win by the Wings tonight.  One of the more complete games I’ve seen them play this season.  Which begs the question: why can’t they play at least half as well for the others?  Is it just because they’re the Sharks?  We’ll never know, I suppose…
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Pavel …

 game recap 8 January 2010

First off, I’ve been kind of terrible about blogging this week, but several things have chosen this moment to take over my life.  This late, the recap is kind of a moot point, but oh well.

 Uncategorized 2 October 2009

The 2009-2010 season starts today.
Oh, I know it actually started yesterday. Joe Sakic had his number retired in Denver; a nice little ceremony and all that.
But it starts today for us. For Red Wings fans. They are dropping the puck in Stockholm in about 30 minutes against …
