Red Wings hockey: Game 1 vs. Boston

Submitted by Randy Marsh on April 18th, 2014 at 8:24 PM

Surprised nobody created a thread yet. Game 1 vs. Boston one period in. LGRW!

PS: If somebody breaks Marchand's face into pieces, I wouldn't be upset.

Not meant as a specific warning to you, but this particular crack means it bears repeating - one of the issues we're hoping to work on in the OT season is basic respect, so attempts to belittle or disparage people in threads such as this will potentially be dealt with and I do invite people to report things in the Mod Sticky.

On a related but completely unrelated note, the Tigers are currently losing to the Angels 4-1. Drew Smyly made his first start of the year today. I hope his second goes better.

I am gonna get really pissed in the third period because I know in my heart that Detroit will continue to dominate this game, but Boston will get some bull shit goal and win 1-0. Boston's goalie is playing very well.

Anybody else see that cheap shot on Dekeyser?  What a load.  If there is a blowout game this series I hope they just light him up.  Where is McCarty when you need him?

LOL. Tampa is down 2-0 to Montreal and the Tampa crowd is chanting"USA USA USA." A couple of issues with that:

1) your team is losing, Tampa fan
2) sure, it is Montreal, but I'll bet most of the players on Montreal are not even Canadian

Ahhh how typical. Well if you look at the roster you will of course realize that Montreal is in fact full of Canadians. 13/26 from Canada.

Please tell me why you assume there wouldn't be many Canadians Is it that you are new to hockey? Or are you so clouded by your Americanism you don't realize that the USA isn't the Mecca of hockey?

There are 5 Americans playing for Montreal for what it's worth.

And Tampa? They are more diverse but 9/29 are Canadian along with 9/29 Americans.

If you're looking for something to watch during intermission, the Tigers-Angels game is probably the worst option out there right now. Ugh.

Franzen is theoretically big enough.  Theoretically is the operative word.  Pat Verbeek played tougher and with more passion than him.  

Quinnville gets find 25K for grabbing his junk, what does Lucic get for intentionally doing that?

It's times like this I miss Jiri Fischer.

Babcock always has this team ready for the playoffs but Howard has a tendency to give up some atrocious rebounds. I get the defense shouldn't give up many second chances but every rebound seems to find the slot
