Gustav Nyquist slapped a shot, had it bounce back to him in the air, then knocked it into the net for the first goal of the game. My brother, father, and I watched the game together on my dad’s birthday. “We could not be stopped.” The Red Wings overcame three first period penalties. However, two more later in the second afte [...]
Trailing 3-1 with just three minutes to play, Detroit was forced to pull goaltender Jimmy Howard. Danny DeKeyser promptly found a streaking Henrik Zetterberg, who fired his third goal of the season into the back of the net. 3-2. The Red Wings pulled Howard again. With under one minute left, Pavel Datsyuk took the puck near the net, then passe [...]
It was the same old song as last night – Toronto stayed on their dirty horse. They committed several first period penalties and prodded our players from the get go, setting the tone for the game. It was to no avail, just like in their arena. The Red Wings couldn’t score, but neither could the Maple Leafs. Jimmy Howard sat out with [...]
Toronto came out dirty. They split open “The Mule’s” face just beside his eye almost immediately after the opening puck dropped. Johan (Mule) Franzen didn’t waste any time retaliating on the scoreboard. With the Red Wings earning a power play on a different high stick, the Maple Leafs mojo started to wane. Shortly afte [...]
The cheap, no good, dirty rotten Boston Bruins returned to Joe Louis Arena for our season opener tonight. Henrik Zetterberg also celebrated his 34th birthday. The Red Wings featured all their sensational Griffins from last season – Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Jurco, among others. We all know the Bruins can’t skate or play r [...]
STAPLES SWAG (MINUS THE LAKERS)
Sorry those bastards couldn’t skate with you and resorted to cheap shots. With our young guns, as usual, we ain’t goin’ no where.
It’s not from a lack of Red Wing skill. This is becoming outrageous. We’re being bullied out of the playoffs. Detroit won game one 1-0 and has dealt with cheap shots ever since. I’m sick of 6’10” Charo thugging his way through our more talented players. If they want to stick us in the balls, bang us illegally, an [...]
Jimmy Howard and the Detroit Red Wings shutout the Boston Bruins to win game one. Howard stopped everything the Bruins threw at him. He made some amazing saves, or they’d have definitely scored. Neither team could break the silence for two periods. However, Pavel Datsyuk passed it to himself through his legs, then took a shot with three [...]
It’s the longest active streak in the four major sports: 23 years in a row Detroit has made the NHL playoffs. Detroit outplayed the Penguins in Pittsburgh, but they fell 4-3 in a shootout. We led 1-0, then they got a cheap penalty and scored. We led 2-1, but they got a power play (cheap?) and scored. Down 3-2, Detroit rallied in the wan [...]
The Wings bested Buffalo on the road 4-2. We stayed knotted at zeroes for the first period, then the Sabres scored first to start the second period. Detroit responded with Brendan Smith’s 5th goal of the season to tie it. Buffalo found themselves up 5 on 3 shortly after the tie, but the Red Wings killed the penalties successfully. Jimmy [...]
The Red Wings shot out to a 3-0 lead in the 1st period and did not look back. The last-place Sabres got beat 3-2, largely due to the Buffalo defense making some lucky stops.
