Post Thumbnail of 2002 vs 2010: The Forwards
 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 …

Post Thumbnail of Stars of the Series: Round 1
 stars of the week 28 April 2010

I wanted to post up my three stars of the series for the Red Wings against the Coyotes, and kind of pick up again on this little weekly feature that I had done earlier in the season…
#3: Jimmy Howard
You gotta hand it to the kid. His first ever playoff series, …

 game recap 28 April 2010

(I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that the first thing that came to mind when I started writing this wrapup was “Phoenix Down.”  Clearly I’ve been playing too much Final Fantasy in my off time.)
Now that’s what I’m talking about.  I had faith in this team that they would bring …

 game recap 21 April 2010

A fun treat: the Joe Louis Arena goal horn as a ringtone.  Download it here.  I edited it down from a longer, 20 second ringtone, to the horn going off three times.  Marlon did a favor of humoring me by calling my phone so I could hear it, and it’s …

 game recap 17 April 2010

My former roommate, and recent convert to Red Wings nation (and hockey in general) back in New York IM’d me shortly after the game ended and made a comment that caused me to laugh a little:
ok, don’t get me wrong, i’m glad we won
but i wish that the entire game …

 game recap 15 April 2010

Not exactly the way we wanted to see the Wings kick off the playoffs this year.  To top it off, the power blew in my side of the apartment building shortly after the game was over, and I sort of lost several of my thoughts that I wanted to post …

 game recap 7 March 2010

I hate that stupid Fratellis song, “Chelsea Dagger.”  It makes me want to put a dagger through my eardrums, and I had to hear it 4 times this afternoon.
This game made me feel like an untreated manic depressive, almost entirely within the third period alone.  The first was pretty bland, …

 game recap 4 March 2010

Well, Trade Deadline Day came and went, and true to his word, Ken Holland was fairly quiet.  The only moves he made was to ship Kris Newbury off to Hartford for Jordan Owens, and apparently also moved Andy Delmore to Calgary for Riley Armstrong.  I know nothing of either Owens …

 game recap 18 January 2010

Well that was… interesting.  I don’t know.  We started off great, faded in the middle, and came back strong again through OT, and couldn’t get it done in the shootout.  Again.
– The Wings controlled a lot of the play in the start, but towards the middle, got stuck at …

 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.
This was a game that I mentioned on The Obstructed View that I was looking …
