 Ozzie! Ozzie! 28 October 2010

Joey MacDonald has been called up from Grand Rapids due to an injury to Jimmy Howard.  Hearing on Twitter that it’s back spams.
No word yet on the specifics, including the extent of how long Howard will be out.  Rafalski was put on short term IR and Draper on LTIR.  Injured …

 game preview,game recap 25 September 2010

Red Wings hockey on my television.  It’s like an oasis in the middle of the desert that is the offseason.  I don’t care if it was pre-season.  It’s the Wings.  It’s hockey.
In the spirit that is the pre-season, this is just going to be a mish-mash of notes and thoughts, …

Post Thumbnail of Howard Steals Yet Another Job From Osgood
 Uncategorized 3 June 2010

Not content to merely take the starting goaltender job from Chris Osgood this season, Jimmy Howard has also taking it upon himself to steal all of Ozzie’s dreams, one at a time.
Today he was invited to take batting practice with the Tigers (along with Draper, Miller, Chelios, and McCarty), and …

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 …

Post Thumbnail of Round 1, Game 3: Coyotes at Red Wings
 game recap 19 April 2010

I don’t want to talk about it.  I really don’t.  That game sucked in more ways that I know how to express.
The only plus from Game 3 was Shane Doan getting upended by Jimmy Howard and crashing into the boards, and going out for the remainder of the game.  Except …

 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 …
