Red Wings vs. Wild GP...

1. The second game of a back-to-back, with travel in between, against a lower-ranked team, after a ridiculous loss? This one should be fun. Can the Wings rebound from last night’s disappointment?
2. Once again, how many minutes of hockey will the Wings show up to play tonight? It turns out that a 58-minute effort doesn’t quite cut it.
3. Kronwall looked wonderful last night. Can he keep it up for the second night in a row after a long layoff, or is his conditioning going to slow him down?
4. The newly-constituted second line had a good game last night, even though they didn’t have much to show for it. It’s nice to finally have more than one line that has the potential to score for a change. Cleary’s addition to the top line also seemed to spark the Eurotwins. Will we continue to see some chemistry from the offense, or was it just a fluke?

The Wings need to win this one, plain and simple. I was all excited for a victory yesterday after having a pretty rough day in my real life. Things were looking good, I was happy, the boys were about to win in regulation…and then the next thing I knew, the wagon was on fire and all of our bullets were lost. What I’m trying to get at here is that the Wings owe me one. And, yes, I’m done with the Oregon Trail references now (I think).


  1. I never heard of Oregon Trail before your last post. I ended up surfing the Internet until I found a web version of it and played it all night.

  2. Same here! And please, don't stop making those references. They made my day :) . Wings are about to play and I wasn't feeling too great but now I can't wait to watch the game!

    Game is starting in just a few.. GO WINGS!!

  3. Question for those who saw the game:

    So, is that where the remaining two minutes of hockey from last night's 58 minute effort went?

    The score seems to reflect it.

  4. So, is that where the remaining two minutes of hockey from last night's 58 minute effort went?

    Score, and the way we played..
