Just an FYI for all the Wings fans out there. The last preseason game against Swedish Elite League champs Farjestads is on right now. Its supposed to be streamed on nhl.com but I'm at work and can't open it.
this may be of some local interest
Rep the NHL well! Can't wait for the season!! Win our Cup back!
There is no play by play, but the video is actually pretty good. Detroit leads 3-0 at the end of the 1st period. The lines so far are:
Howard in goal
2. Zetterberg (PPG)
I can actually read the stat lines and everything! Knowing Swedish so rarely comes in handy.
also this thread needs more Emma Andersson
Plus one for you, sir!
Check out the sweet Euro electronica dance music between breaks!
The Wings are really carrying the play vs. this team. This is a good opp for them to scout more Swede players and get to see them match up vs. their own team.
They need RAWK music to enhance the game day experience. Maybe ABBA.
Bertuzzi just scored on a nice breakaway, and got a round of applause from the crowd...they seem to be enjoying this as a nice friendly scrimmage more or less.
I am so ready for the season. I expect nothing less than another Stanley Cup.
Hell yeah, I get every other Friday off from work so I'm pumped I don't have to DVR it.
Howard had a really solid game. In Wings prospect news, Johan Ryno has decided to play in Sweden this year... again... scorning Grand Rapids and probably pissing off the Wings brain trust. His chances with the Wings may be drying up... he is currently 23 and has shown no ability to play North American hockey yet.
