Battle Creek, MI
I have no idea what to say here... I'm a Pisces, I like metal music, horror movies, the Red Wings (obviously) and feeding PCP to wolverines then turning them loose on people I don't like.
I don't know about you guys, but to me, Franzen seemed slow and confused out there last night...I don't know if he had a big meal before the game, or he's preparing for winter hibernation, but he just seemed sluggish and labored in trying to do anything...Starting to question that guy's initiative.

Alfredsson was fun to watch, he's got some hustle! I was pretty impressed with our D. They were very involved from the get-go. Ericsson is getting better and more reliable. Despite that blunder that led to the only goal by the Sabres, Howard looked good out there. Hank and Pavel still up to their old tricks, and it never gets old! I'm really looking forward to the rest of this season!

I. AM. LIVID. I really can't say much more than that right now.

What would be sweeter? Finishing off Chicago in their barn tonight and silencing their fans or taking it back to the Joe and letting the home crowd witness the demise?

I read this and it reminded me of the Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken"
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both. And be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim ,because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay in leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh. Somewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference
@AndyInBaltimore This may be blasphemy, but I actually felt bad for Crawford when Quenneville was tearing him a new one. Crawford seemed to be one of the only guys on that team who was trying to hold it together as best he could when the team in front of him was falling apart. As the old saying goes, "S**t rolls downhill." When a coach is losing his mind, it doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the players.

Maybe I'm just off my rocker, but in a few years I can honestly see Brunner and Nyquist as Euro Twins 2.0. I would also like to formally and publicly retract any negative statements I've made about Kindl in the past. He has really stepped up, he's been shooting like a madman and he seems to be getting better at those blue line goals. On the whole, I am just amazed by this whole team. As fans we will always believe, but when we see things coalesce, it is still awe inspiring.
Babcock just needs to keep on keepin' on with his Sun Tzu "Art of War" approach. I found this quote from that book that was perfect for this series. "If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior
strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.
Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give
him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject
are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared,
appear where you are not expected."

What a pompus blowhard of an ass...Oh wait...He's writes for Chicago, I guess the "pompus blowhard" goes without saying. Let 'em squawk. If he can make a prognostication like that, he's in the wrong line of work. He needs to join the Psychic Friends Network...'cuz THOSE guys are for real. (insert sarcasm)

Hit the nail on the head. Abby's takedown of Bolland was superb. We had to rewind and watch it a couple of times. I hope Smith is a healthy scratch fror Saturday's game.

This was probably the funniest write up all season. It wonderfully depicted the rollercoaster of emotions watching this particular game. Frustration, helplessness, anger, elation, defiance. Perfect summary.

Have Anaheim always been this whiny? They were bitching and moaning all during the game Friday night, too. Real bunch of professionals they've got there...The icing on the cake for me was when either Getzlaf or Perry (can't remember who) kicked the stick down the ice. Ah, to see grown men throw temper tantrums is hilarious.The refs were like parents, "If you're gonna talk back and throw a fit like a baby, I'm gonna give you a time out!"

My birthday was on the 15th, went to the bar, sang karaoke, watched the game. Datsyuk winning in OT was the perfect ending to an awesome birthday!

Fair enough. Kronner has not really had a good season so far. I don't know if it's the pressure to be the lead defenseman now that Nick Sr. is gone or what, but he needs to shake it off.

I can see your point, but damn. He needs to start playing smarter.
I know I sound like a broken record, but Kindl? Really? He has wholeheartedly regained his title as King Bonehead from Quincey. I never have and never will get what others have seen in him... I didn't like him last year and I don't like him this year.
YES! We are WAAAYYY overdue for a good Kronwalling. Kronner seems to be having a bit of a rough start to the season. It almost seems like he's a target for interference penalties now that Homer's gone. He just needs to flatten a couple of guys, release some stress and that monkey will fall dead off his back.

Yup, right where you said it'd be! Thanks so much!

I've got a question that I know someone here will be able to help me out with. Does anyone know where I can find the takeaway leaderboard stats for the season thus far? I know how many Datsyuk has, but I just want to see where he is compared with everyone else. I've checked the NHL site, the Red Wings site, ESPN, I just can't seem to find it. Thanks!
It's also the 'Tuzzi's birthday as well.
