Hopefully the start of another great run for the Red Wings. Feeling like I'm supporting them by eating Little Ceasars and drinking Oberon.
Helm's back just in time! He always plays great in the playoffs.
Let's go Red Wings!
Referee setting the tone early. Not exactly legal, but also a roughing call you don't normally get in the NHL.
very trigger happy for the roughing calls so far tonight, although if Franzen touched his face it's a call that would normally get made, IMO.
If someone asks for a stream, I'll cut you.
Why is that? I'm looking for one...
Some moron will ask for a stream in every single open thread. The response is always the exact same. If people haven't learned by now, they deserve to get punched in the balls.
How so? Everytime I've seen a stream question posted, it's been some random-ass website that Google can't even find.
Dammit, they score.
we scored, Stuart just put it in the wrong net.
Deflection, not like he kicked it in.
Well that sucks...
I'm pretty sure Brad Stuart had like 3 goals bounce off of him last year against San Jose
what a weird bounce
That should be a major. Definitely.
Of course they call the piddly shit early, then give a minor for that.
Way to keep player safety in mind NHL
The Power Play looks good so far. You have to think they will get one on it soon.
Refs trying to look tough in front of Blowman
Not sure if it is 2 m or 1
I guess the refs want some camera time tonight
Offensive zone control is putrid.
Seems to be on his game tonight
Oh, shit, Helm got cut?!?!
I have never been cut by skates but i hope it is small enough just to stich up
We. Look. Like. Trash. We aren't checking, we're taking shit penalties, we aren't checking, we're turning the puck over, and we aren't checking.
Well, when we check, the refs call a penalty. /s
Ericcson taking a trip, when I'm not sure why he was so far up. Commentary saying it was his assignment, maybe they're right, I didn't catch the whole thing.
How many shots have we had? Like 4? 5? Can't be more than 10......and now we have a 5 on 3 against us....shit
That was all arm/wrist
I hate playoff refs, especially with the asshole Bettman in the crowd
i hate penatlies like that, because that stuff goes on all game and never gets called.
Eh slashing penalty.
Another Abdelkader penalty. It's magic!
We may be zombies just about everywhere, but goddamn our PK is playing out of their minds tonight
At least the PK is looking good so far, with a few exceptions
Down 0-1 ain't bad for half the first period spend down 4 on 5
And # 93 makes more money, if you cant score hit someone. I was at the 66 game vs. Habs and saw Able riding the old guys of M, Howe, and Delvechio, Baun and Brewer. That was it. Same here, got a few blue chippers and what we have left is Salery Cap type players.
We have to take it to them.
Shameless plug. If you need some intermission reading, I posted the PK diary a few minutes ago. The wings have used a lot of what I've written about, both on the PP and PK. There's a lot of special teams in this game, lucky timing for my diaries.
2nd period has just started and I'm already nervous. Playoff hockey is awesome in that masochist sort of way.
