Man, I've seen so many posts around hockey blogs referencing how Jack Johnson is one of the most overrated defensemen in the league. These are always coming from a hockey-stats persepective using Corsi or Fenwick numbers.
I disagree, especially since he has been on the Jackets. I also think it was a mistake for Team USA to leave him off, since he has always showed up for international competitions.

I'm still not over the Franzen over Hossa signing :(

Absolutely zero space in the offensive zone, losing all board battles, things aren't looking good. That's where it really hurts not having Z in the lineup. Franzen is a damn ghost at this point. Johan needs to get his act together, score a goal, and we might get back into this thing.

And Granlund wins it, what a game. I can definitely get behind the Wild.

Now a 3rd game starting with Hawks-Blues. I'm sure that one will go to OT.

Columbus came out hot tonight. The barn sounds pretty loud, though I doubt it is the most hockey-knowledgeable crowd we will see.

I thought it was at least a charge. Seemed like he came in from a long way out just to make that hit after not being involved in the play at all.

I like this one too, since it was an OT game winner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjqM_GSdD04

How many times will I watch that replay today? Probably more than 50. So nasty. And I love his composure after the goal, no obnoxious celebration, just doing his job.

Goalies see the game better than anyone. Easily the best position on the ice :)

He skated with the team this morning in Boston, but I don't think he will realistically play in this series.
If we can somehow survive this and get to the 2nd round, watch out. Z is our most valuable player. The guy makes everyone around him so much better. It is incredible watching him forecheck along the boards in the offensive zone, shielding a guy off and controlling the puck with one hand. Combine that with Pavel's skill and our offensive zone cycle is a thing of beauty.

Nice! On the flip side, when a couple guys got kicked off of the Michigan hockey team a few years back they skated in our league at the Cube. I robbed one of them (the name escapes me right now) on a breakaway with a reaching back glove save, which was my nice highlight sticking out amongst the 5 or 6 goals he scored.

The Go Blue, Wear Maize one? That was also my favorite.

Two of my go-to D&D trivia questions:
1. What was the name of the lobby bar where Lloyd tried to meet Mary?
2. What was the name of the magazine he was buying when he lost his wallet?

Nice! Away games are awesome, Wings fans seem to pack every rink in the US. I've done @Minnesota and @Chicago (live here) this year. Been to @CBus in the past as well.
As far as the Sunday game goes, that was very meaningful for them! Instead of facing the Wild, they now have to play the Blackhawks...yikes. After limping into the playoffs on 6 straight losses, I think the Blues are toast.

Wow that is quite a prank.
Funny it happened to Francoeur, as he had some excellent interactions with Oakland A's fans a couple years ago. They were doing a "Bacon Tuesday" out in the right field bleachers, and when he heard about it he joined in with the fans after the game. Then the next day, he threw a ball to the guys with a $100 bill wrapped around it, and a note telling them to spend it on bacon and beer. The next year at the 2nd Bacon Tuesday, the A's were playing the Royals again, and the fans made Francoeur the face of the event. So he responded by ordering a bunch of pizzas up into the stands for the fans. Pretty cool stuff for an opposing player!

Wow, for a second I thought that was Phil Kessel and JVR together in college...that would just be wild.
