OT: Phoenix vs Detroit Game 6
Courtesy of the "Jimmy Howard Punching Sidney Crosby in the Face" Facebook fan page:
Good news for the Phoenix Dingos: the forecast for tomorrow in Glendale is excellent golfing weather. Bad news for the Phoenix Dingos: you're still going to have to find someone to lend you the money to pay your greens fees. Wings in 6.
mr. 500th, i thought we were a bunch of idiots.
dude don't waste your time on these idiots. They are bunch of fucking idiots. Join the board I'm on on NHL.com. These jack offs have no idea what they talk about half the time. just blah blah blah as always....
Come on, guys, gotta be more responsible than that. :(
i type wings are looking sharp they get burned. fuck.
cant score on one of these PPs...
Cue the "the_big_house_500th" Jimmy Howard meltdown.
the wings look bad when 1. they wait for the puck to come to them, rather than going after it, and 2. they get too cute with passes. and also when they give up a shorthanded goal. ugh.
The NBC Iso-Star cam is aggravating.
the websop is excellent quality, but is about a minute behind.
looks like a monster back there today. i hope his first 10 minutes its not a harbinger of things to come
i don't think we got him moving side to side enough during our 5 on 3. too many direct, easy to see shots
once again, the draper line has been our best. they're hitting hardest, skating harder, going after the puck. they're giving the effort.
Just in case you neede a reason to believe. GO WINGS!!!
i'm guessing you had to go get something to drink?
and i started to worry.
the wings sure are throwing the body around today which is nice to see.
lots of time in the offensive zone too
that we are getting shots to the net! Just need to get one in! That goal wasn't Howard's fault, bad defensive let up.
half our problem is that so many of our shots just arent finding the net. so many shots are flying wide. cmon boys, target practice.
This is so frustrating it's like watching a Michigan hockey game. Have a million scoring chances and control the ice, but can't put it in the goal while also giving up a relatively soft goal that shouldn't have been scored.
Abdelkader has been hitting like a man though. Hopefully he wears them down eventually.
Down 1-0 is not the way I wanted to start this game off, especially because we had 3 power plays to at least put 2 up early but couldn't. We just need to get in front of Bryzgalov and beat him! Got a lot of time left to win!
just saw the yzerman one for the first time. i got chills.
after that goal, he has the happiest face i've seen on a person, ever.
coyotes getting burned out their but brzy is on his game today. crazy how the wings have been on like 6 power plays already
shit first period ... we cant finish ... its like watching michigan hockey ... plus howards got to make that save, the shot wasnt that strong ... unacceptable turnover by stuart ... there is no way we should be down right now
wins this game if the Wings keep the pressure and intensity up.
This is the best the Wings have looked in awhile. It absolutely sucks the scoreboard has nothing to show for it.
Can't believe it is 2-0.
you have to just believe it's not.
Way to answer
no wait, yay.
Yes Please. Thank you.
Way to get one back. Stuart making up for that terrible give away on the 1st goal
WANTS HOCKEY PUCKS IN HIS BELLY
austin jackson with a leadoff homer, damon and kelly with R's-BI, tigers up 3-0 in the first
thanks! it's rare that i'm not working and i have an afternoon to keep track of multiple detroit sporting events from my hotel room in tallahassee. i'm definitely enjoying this
No interference down in their zone?
helm is fast
he looked like a futbol player on that one
I think Fiddler is about one dirty hit away from finding himself a place alongside Claude Lemieux and Ville Niemenenenen in my classification of hockey players who should be plying their trade in a distant corner of Siberia.
hear his comments about the refs favoring the wings in the last game? classy. he'll never be a claude lemieux to me though... lemieux looked like vigo from ghostbusters 2; somehow just evil
i must be seeing things. did lilja just make a good offensive play?
game 1 redux?
Let's try this again...
I can't believe it is 3-1.
if you were listening earlier, Brian Rafalski is a "Michigan Man"
but doesn't seem insurmountable for some reason
what the fuck is happening
okay seriously guys, i know you hate playing early on the weekends, but this is horseshit. this is just embarrassing.
last one wasn't his fault but howard's play is bipolar. wings shouldn't have to score 5 goals in order to win every game.
santiago's rbi single scores sizemore, 4-2 tigers, mid 3rd. 2 LOB
it's like peewee hockey out there.
... quite a catch by the rookie Austin Jackson:
(Don't know what product they are advertising for "Chick Odors"...)
he sure is making dombrowski look good
... eases the pain a bit of Polanco. I stopped looking at his average every day last week. The jury is still out on Scherzer.
Curtis G has a lower average than AJ, but his strikeouts are WAY down...
granderson's defense at the end of last year pissed me off.
i don't get to actually watch any tigers games since i'm out of market, so why is AJ striking out so much? it's like hit or strike out for him.
we might have let polanco go a liiiitle early, but he just wasn't doing it against AL pitching anymore.
it looks like a game 7 is on the horizon.
im trying to get tickets right now to game 7 seeing i live in arizona....should be a good one
but if terrible things continue to happen, represent us well for game 7
porcello walks in a run, then gives up a bases clearing double. 6-4 rangers. f me
... both Rocket Rick and Verlander seem way off this year.
If we have to rely on the D-Train as our stopper, heaven help us.
suddenly our bullpen is stable and we're worrying about our starters? it's like the bizarro tigers
im going to get drunk
let us spring out of our sober shells like drunken eagles!
<---- getting drunk tonight
on the eight hundred penalties Phoenix took early in the game, I got worried this would be the result.
if you get a 5 on 3 and score, huge for you. if you don't score, huge for other team. that goes double when you give up a shorty instead of score with the man adv
Phx Powerplay 3-5
Wings Powerplay 0-5
thats the story of the game...
it on in game 7, phoenix.
He is by far my favorite red wing. seems weird that he is. But it is because he graduated from the same HS as me two years before i did. He was friends with my brother and i am good friends with his cousin so i know him and his family. Got to love the hometown hero.
that's a goal
good call, drunk me
dontrelle willis in relief? whaaa???
... Leyland is having to burn up the bullpen.
But D-Train's frickin walks drive you crazy!
Update: while typing, 2 runs score. Those two walks to start the inning come back to bite you every time.
was that 3 consecutive 3-0 counts? this game is gonna be bloody
I think the Wings can win, but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't.
If they do, I don't think they've been playing consistently enough to make it out of the 2nd round.
the first round has seemed like their worst enemy over the years. if they get past the first, they roll to the finals. but that was with slightly different personnel i suppose.
These announcers are fuckin stupid and really annoy me. Give me ken daniels and mickey redmond. at least they will be covering tuesdays game
except abdelkader got in 2 brief fights. PK not good. you're right, you didn't miss much
He got 2 roughing penalties and a 10 min misconduct at the end. Needs to work on his takedown defense.
i'm going to go imbibe. enjoy your respective sundays!
I hope that they can win on Tuesday night, but they had such an uphill climb to just make the playoffs. Even if Detroit wins, I do not see them moving much further.
The 28th-ranked power play in the league has scored three power play goals twice in this series. Pathetic.
