Post Thumbnail of Round 1, Game 7: Red Wings at Coyotes
 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 …

Post Thumbnail of An Interview with Brendan Shanahan
 Uncategorized 25 April 2010

Not even kidding.
I received the opportunity to conduct a phoner interview with Brendan Shanahan, currently the VP of Hockey and Business Development (or, as his Twitter profile says, VP of “blah blah blahblahblah”) at the NHL.  I had a double-take moment where I debated the validity of this offer, and …

 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 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 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 preview 14 April 2010

Kind of quick, slap-and-dash post here, since I’m at home for lunch, but I need to run back in time for a 1pm meeting.
For the first time in 10 years, the Red Wings are starting the playoffs on the road, rather than in the friendly confines of the Joe Louis …

 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 …

 game preview 26 January 2010

The big news here is Niklas Kronwall’s glorious return to the blue line.  With that, Meech is the odd man out, and will return to his familiar spot in the press box.  I am stoked for this.  It means we finally have 2 solid defensive pairings, and now Brad Stuart …

 game recap 3 January 2010

That was the best game the Wings have played this calendar year.  And now that I’ve stated the obvious, I was thrilled to see that they followed up a good game on NYE versus Colorado with another strong outing.  Maybe the ship’s turning in the new year.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: …
