I won't be at the GEC, but I'll be watching at home. I say it's a good game but I have a feeling we will lose. Detroit has to be upset about their performance against St. Louis last night. I only hope they are dead tired, and their hemmorhoids are flaring up on them
I don't like predictions, but I have a semi-good feeling on this one. Detroit's been playing a lot better than I expected. I could see them taking us lighty. I think we will go all-out to win this one.
1-0 Wings. B.S. call on Timonen to make it 4-4. Preds might be the worst 4-4 team in the NHL right now. I'm thinking Trotz might need to ease back Hamhuis' time. He's just not solid right now in his own end. He's getting mauled by opposing players.
You want to know what's wrong with NHL officials? Look at the rush the Preds just had. We kept the puck in their for 45-60 seconds and generated about 3 would be great scoring chances. I saw hands to the face, obstruction-hooking, obstruction-holding, high-sticking, holding and hooking. But I never saw a call. In fairness, I thought the call on Timonen was soft. I thought the call on Draper was soft.
I think Hartnell needs to fasten his diaper back on and go to his crib. Is this the same player we saw in his sophomore season? I contend he's softer now than he was 2 years ago.
2 minutes of 5 on 3. how much do you want to bet we make NOTHING of it?
Well, I would have bet we would have gotten no goals out of it. So far no good. We can generate chances but all our passes hit somebody and deflect to a PKer. It's happened this way for so many years now. I think we're scared to go on the PP. I think we are making sawdust out of sticks we're gripping them so tight. I think Trotz has a lot of coaching yet to do. I think Timonen isn't a very good leader. I just don't see a calming presence on the ice anymore.
