I know that the season still has a long way to go...but the longer I see Detroit at the top of the Central Division...the better mood I'll be in, especially living in Chicago. The Islanders always seem to enjoy playing spoiler for the Wings. So let's hope our boys step up with that 'skate to throat' mentality and play a whole sixty minute game.
Don't be surprised if the Isles get a penalty shot though...oh, who I am kidding - would anyone be surprised at this point?
Movie poster carnesseur, Josh decided to stick with the Will Ferrell theme for tonight's movie poster.
Make the jump to see what he's come up with.
In Josh's own words:
Poor Nabby, if only you were wearing red and white right now. Oh well... get him Franzen!
You may remember that Detroit tried to sign the veteran to a contract in the off-season, only to have him stolen away by Garth Snow...a stupid goalie plucking another stupid goalie off of waivers...you couldn't make that kind of crap up.
Anyway, Nabokov threatened to boycott the signing but caved eventually.
Tonight, it's payback time.
Lace up your Florsheim zipper boots and let's do this for Captain Kirk's nipples!
One of the worst days of my life hockey wise. I was so pumped, I love nabby and he's so close with pav too. Might of helped him be even better then he's been to have a fellow russian on that team. So I hate the islanders becuz of it lol. Go wings though
No Pav... Commie may play some forward shifts tonight. Put him at the net and let him power forward it up!
for the penalty shot, i'm guessing it happens in the second period because of another covered puck in the crease. it will result in the islander's only goal.
@Twig I'm guessing that it happens early to try to give them a boost out front. I bet they call it against Lidstrom again so that they can continue to make a case against him for the Norris (see NHL.com trophy predictions today).
