Two down, 80 to go. Time to reclaim the 'Cup.
And this time we play the Blackhawks for the Cup
I JUST got home from the game and it was FABBBBB=u=lous!!!! What a great crowd! about 60% Red Wing fans!!! And me in my Tigers jersey led the way!!! It was 2=0 after two periods and the sweet lady next to me brought her grandson -who wore a Wings jersey!!! Well anyway, all gam elong , she mentioned how bad she wanted some ice cream. So as she came back to start the third, I warned her that her ice cream would curse the Hurricanes. She said my BBQ sandwich would fatten the Wings -SO I DID NOT EAT ONE BITE!!!! NEXT, Abdelkader scores to make it 2-1....I swear this is all really happening!!! Every LETS GO CANES Chant was countered with LETS GO WINGS !!! Then as doom closed in with 16 seconds left, THE CAPTAIN !! #40!!!!!SCORRRRED!!!!!! WE OWNEDDDDD the building!!!!...so at the break, I high fived and wolfed my way to the rest room...as I came back down the aisle WE SCORED!!!!!! 3-2......DEEEEtroit HOCKKKKey!!!!! I saw Steely Dan last Wednesday...Frankie Beverly last Saturday and the Wings tonight!!!! Not a bad 10 days for OldskoolHQ!
Looking good G.
not bad for almost 50!!!
You don't look a day over 45.
Old Skool...A handsome rascal...Should be doing Progressive Insurance commercials Allstate Insurance commercials.
Anyways, I noticed the Wings are in the Eastern conference. I knew that.
They're in the Atlantic division of the conference.
Also, we have 16 teams in the Eastern conference, but only 14 teams in the Western conference.
I thought Columbus was moving to the West, What happened.
Are they just taking the 16 top records for the playoffs, or is it still 8 from each conference.
Seems kinda unfair to me.
Also, I never got to vote on the name "Metropolitan" for one of the divisions......
Roy is still an attention seeking psycho ! But I respect him. I bet he doesn't last 5 seasons.
The top 3 teams in each division make the playoffs. The final 2 spots from each conference are based on the next best records. So, it would be possible for one division to have 5 teams qualify and the other have 3 teams.
Another nice thing about the new format is that all 30 teams will play games in all 30 arenas every season.
After looking at the teams in the eastern conference, 4 of the original 6 are in the Atlantic division...Guess the name Metro was generated because 6 of the 8 teams are within 100 miles of each other and the other 2 are just under 200 miles, so you got a large metropolis of hockey with the whole division within shouting distance of each other.
Not that anybody cares, but has anyone noticed that the Red Wings have lost 4 straight OT games including tonight? They led 3-1 going into the 3rd and lost their second straight shoot out.
For the record they are 1-6 in OT games including losing 3 shootouts. All six OT losses were at the Joe..
Still they are only 4 pts behind conference leader Tampa Bay, so no worries yet I guess.....except defense in the end and getting a goalie who can defend against the shoot out.
Red Wings played in their 5th straight overtime game tonight. The last time they did that was 1996-97 season. The score was tied 4-4 with Islanders after overtime. With another shootout loss tonight, the Red Wings are now 0-for-5 in shootouts this season.
This is a team that seems to give up after 60 minutes....1-7 overall in OT. I wonder what the record is for consecutive OT losses....or do the Wings own it now?
They scored late today, so it was a good point. The shootout is not really hockey, so I don't worry too much about shootout losses.
The good is that they got 5 points in the last 5 games...................
I can't stand it when conferences and or even divisions are unfairly divided. Wings need to be best of 8 to win their division. In the other conference best of 7 will win !
Each conference would have had 15 teams if the Wings had stayed in the west.
I'm glad they're in the east...so more teams doesn't bother me as much.
why do you like them in the East ?
They get to play their old school rivalries more.
I enjoy it when they play an original 6 team.
Besides, they'll have less travel time playing in the east.
