 Jonathan Ericsson Watch 6 October 2010

Update, 9:01pm MT: I was thinking when I posted this about setting up some sort of actual pool, with a real winner and everything, and Matt’s link today reminded me of that.  So, put in your bets in the comments below.  Whoever’s the closest will win a yet-to-be-determined but still …

 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, …

 game recap 4 February 2010

I don’t know if it was just because it was a late game, or what, but I felt just as wiped out as the Wings looked.  I half paid attention in the second and third periods, and may have spent a little more time slinging “Super Troopers” quotes around the …

 Uncategorized 23 December 2009

It’s Festivus!
And part of the traditions of celebrating Festivus is the “Airing of Grievances”–a declaration of how you’ve been disappointed by those in your life the past year. We may be only 30+ games into the season, but I’ve still got enough grievances to share…
Chris Osgood: You really let …

Well that was vomit inducing.  I missed most of the first period running home from work, and it turned out I didn’t miss much at all.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Dan(ny) Cleary (Bertuzzi, Lidstrom [with a ridiculous pass])
Edmonton: Lubomir Visnovsky (unassisted); Robert Nilsson (Stone, Stortini); Patrick O’Sullivan (Jacques); Patrick O’Sullivan (Souray)

 game recap 9 October 2009

I unfortunately wasn’t able to watch the game live and had to DVR it.  Which led to me finding out the score ahead of time.  Oh well, at least I knew we won…
Goals were as follows:
Detroit – Nicklas Lidstrom (pp; Williams, Zetterberg); Draper (Maltby, Ericsson); Franzen (pp; Holmstrom, Datsyuk)
Chicago – …

 Uncategorized 27 September 2009

Let’s take a quick poll:
Is anyone concerned that the Red Wings have only won 2 out of 7 pre-season games thus far? And that they’ve dropped the last 5 consecutively?
