Post Thumbnail of Pre-Season Game 2: at Blackhawks
 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 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 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 3 February 2010

I said in my preview they have enough talent to beat this team, no question.   And the Wings showed it.  They put the foot down after a bad start and roared back with 4 unanswered goals.  What a great game.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Dan(ny) Cleary (Filppula, Holmstrom); Henrik Zetterberg …

 game preview,game recap 27 January 2010

What a shit show.  They had a 2 goal lead with 1:30 remaining and they blew it.  Tippett pulled Bryzgalov with almost 2 minutes left in the game, and I knew that Phoenix would at least get a 3rd goal.  But Jesus, you know what kind of season it’s been …

 Uncategorized 25 January 2010

According to Khan Kronwall will be back in the lineup tomorrow.
And, it seems that Mickey wasn’t as drunk as we thought during the Kings game, as Lilja has gone 13 days without a headache from his concussion (he needs to go 14 in order to be cleared by doctors).  Obviously …

 game recap 22 November 2009

Oddly, I didn’t find myself feeling overly thrilled with this win.  It was likely overshadowed by the sick feeling in my stomach when Kronwall went down.  In one shift, Georges Laraque managed to high stick Darren Helm in the face, and get Nik Jr. with an intentional knee-on-knee hit.  There …

Post Thumbnail of Stars of the Week
 stars of the week 16 November 2009

Every Monday (I hope) I want to post my picks as the Red Wings’ three stars of the week.  This is clearly a biased endeavor, and may or may not take actual statistical accomplishments into account.
#3: Dan Cleary
2-3-5 for this past week, and was +7.  He’s rounding into form, finally, …

 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 – …

Post Thumbnail of Now wait just a minute...
 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?
I’ll be honest: it’s a little disturbing to see the same trend that plagued the Red Wings last year rear …
