Nice to meet you too Goaliemon. Saw you in the concourse on the way out. Nice to hang with Shelf, cbjfan4life, Darr and others pre and post game. The local fans around us were really great all night.

I'm still stunned. Of all the things I planned on seeing out of the team last night, the performance that they ended up giving was not one of them.

The first 7 minutes or so it looked like we were just fighting off the inevitable, but they really hunkered down and got their legs and game going. Great effort!

Note to those that go to Detroit in the future - go to the Anchor bar. Free shuttle to and from the Joe!

Didn't see, listen to or record the game. Just waking up and checking the web and see the score of the game. Will have to do some reading to find out what the hell happened, but I'll have to do it quick before my cackling leads to the long descent into madness.

The results of last night's game boosted Leclaire up to second with a 2.09 GAA and pushed Os-not-so-good to third with 2.18.

And, to top off a delightful experience, log on to LetsGoWings! The best team in hockey and they turn on them during a slump just like many here do to the CBJ on a nightly basis! All fans are pretty much alike, aren't we?

How much you wanna bet we win more games on the road than at home the rest of the season?

I have a feeling this team has become the "uncomfortable under the microscope" team when they are at home.

On the road, though, its just Hitch and the boys.

Yeah man - definitely - nice meeting you.

I agree that all the Red Wings fans were great. Definately not as bad as Buffalo fans .

Anyway........how many times have the Wings lost by 4 goals this year? I still can't believe we won.....

I honestly think this is a healthy thing in the long run. Our loyalty and approval, IMHO, was taken for granted for a long time. It's good for them to know we know what we're watching and when they're laying an egg on the ice. I really believe that making home less comfortable makes the road easier in some ways.

The victory was nice, but the incentive behind it is still what sticks in my craw-- craptacular performances vs. teams everyone knows they should be able to beat, regardless of their hot streaks.

Just got back/awake from the game last night.......awesome start, wings outplayed them in a second, but it always helps when the cbjs get a goal, 3rd period gave up one, and than killed off their chances when we got the 5th goal........have never seen as many cbj fans there as there were last night....way to represent fans! local fans are cool......must be the a-holes who come to columbus....definitely reccomend the anchor bar.....great hockey bar, (not the best though)
I told the fans around us, we would love to do it again in about the 2nd or 3rd week of april!

Great Win. Probably best of the season. Hopefully this really gives the old confidence a boost.

14-7-1 til playoffs: 2 out of 3 the rest of the way. I figure we can beat the Blues and Leafs, and then lose to the Sens. The Leafs game is a must-win. We can't just keep spoiling games against bad teams like LA, Chi, and Tor. Make it easier on yourselves and win the bad games at least.

I'm with you on this one. Probably the first televised game I've missed all season. My thoughts on this will undoubtably sound negative after a big win, but in my opinion this underscores the fragility of this team. With a little luck, a score or two, and being able to skate downhill makes all the diff. with our bunch. Adversity is something else again. Being able to play "their game" just seems to be in their mind that, hey, we can actually win one tonight. Love my team, but this is the only thing that makes sense with the way they have played most of this season. The comeback win at Dallas fueled some confidence for a little while, but that evaporated during the All Star break. No wonder Hitch relies on his veterans so much.

I don't think it's that bad - we've done decent against Detroit this season and they don't scare me as much anymore. Chalk up two more wins against them. I figure we split with Calgary. I think we can squeeze another win out of Nashville. We can beat San Jose at home. Vancouver is going down. There's your 6 wins.

DJ- Wasn't it you who gave me so much grief when I said some time ago that "we play well against the Wings"?

Sorry, if it wasn't you. Somebody (some time back) really ripped into me when I said that. They argued that in order for me to say "we played well against" them, we had to have a winning record against them, etc. Oh well, just chalk it up to senility..
Sorry, DJ.

Here's the thread you're looking for. You'll see it wasn't me.

To throw another pile of realism on this post - Have we learneed nothing from this recent stretch (that we should have known all along)? There are no games this team "should win" or is "supposed to win." None. Of course, we've also learned (what we should have known all along) that this team "can win" any game.
