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 Round 2, Game 4: Sharks at Red Wings
 game recap 7 May 2010

This was reminiscent of Game 7–in an elimination game, the Wings really have brought it.  The question is now, can they keep it up for 3 more?  Each game from here on out is a Game 7.
The Wings proved that they’re not done yet, but realistically, it’s one game.  And …

 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 6 March 2010

Well there’s one way to come back after the pathetic outing against Vancouver.  I’m pretty certain this was the first game all season that was labeled as a “must win” and the Wings actually came out and played like they knew it was important.  It was huge to get the …

My picks for the stars of the week 12/21-12/27
#3: Valtteri Filppula
He didn’t put any points up in his return against Columbus, but Flip was clearly a steadying force out on the ice. As I mentioned in my game recap, it was so relieving to have one of the top players …

 game recap 27 December 2009

Very glad that I was wrong when I said this was exactly the type of game the Wings like to lose.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Todd Bertuzzi (pp; Datsyuk, Lidstrom); Todd Bertuzzi (Rafalski, Lidstrom)
Columbus: Antoine Vermette (Voracek)
Pluses
+ I know that Bertuzzi knew Petrella was in the building when he scored that …

 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 …

 stars of the week 14 December 2009

My picks for Detroit’s stars of the week for 11/30-12/13:
#3: The Penalty Kill
I don’t know if it’s lame to choose the entire penalty kill, but it has just been so good of late as a whole.  Babcock praised Helm and Eaves in particular, for getting into the lanes and blocking …

 game preview,game recap 12 December 2009

Didn’t get to watch this last night, so no full recap from me.  I’m DVRing the NHL Network re-air (Ducks broadcasters, ugh), though.
I get the ESPN score alerts on my phone, and when saw that Bertuzzi scored 2 goals, including the game winner, I wondered if I was more drunk …

Post Thumbnail of Stars at Red Wings, 30 November
 game recap 1 December 2009

It was nice to close out the month of November with a tidy win by the Wings.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Drew Miller (Lebda, Draper); Darren Helm (Draper, Bertuzzi); Dan Cleary (Zetterberg, Holmstrom); Todd Bertuzzi (Datsyuk)
Dallas: Brenden Morrow (Robidas, Daley)
Pluses
+ Young Howard looks confident, and he looks like an NHL-level goaltender.  …
