Heh... Hockey Edition

It's been a wacky couple of days at the top of the Western Conference.
San Jose can't stop giving up goals and has lost five straight. Chicago's in the same boat, conceding 22 goals in their last seven games and losing five of those.
Meanwhile, the league-subsidized Coyotes have stormed up the standings with nine straight wins. After last night's shootout victory over Dallas, they're a point up on San Jose (albeit with an extra game played) and tied with Chicago at the top of the conference with two extra games played. Many have tried to explain it away as San Jose getting their annual chokejob done early, or the Blackhawks' questionable goaltending situation finally catching up with them.
But I see now what it really is.
No one wants to play the Red Wings in the first round of the playoffs.
Read on to see why.  More than one person sees the Beloved Wings as back in "Unstoppable Red Wings Mode."  And we'll get to watch them play the Evil Flightless Birds this evening on Versus.  It's hockey, so anything could happen.  That said... I'd LOVE to see 87 humbled.  Then again, I would say that, wouldn't I?


  1. Good game and a scrum at the buzzer with that punk #87, he was getting away with a lot of cross checking and the Wings were finally fed up with that. Too bad they didn't actually work him over to the point of missing limbs or something. I hate him and that other cheap shot specialist, Malkin.

    Should be a good second season!!

    BT: Jimmy T sends.

  2. It was good... what I saw of it! ;-) I missed the first two periods due to stupidity on my part... but the third was great. I agree with you about 87 and was glad to see Howard jump in there.

  3. Eh. I'm stuck over here on the east coast with the gutless Bruins of 2010. I'm kind of hoping they DON'T make the playoffs so they can stop embarrassing us earlier.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
