Wings got killed the first night. Panic has ensued. But who's fault is it really? Likely ours.
We didn't do our job. We failed to post our game day poster and as a result, St. Lose proceded to win scoring a million goals in the process.
So tonight, we do not make that same mistake again, Josh has provided the goods. But first, a few notes.
IT IS DARREN HELM'S BIRTHDAY! Happy Birthday to the Namesake and a get well soon!
This is the first poster in a long time not to carry the "Eavesdropping" tradition, as the fisty fella is making his first apperence in a game since November 26 of 2011. Woo hoo, only one of Mursak and Emmerton!
Big Rig stepped on a puck and is a game time decision. If he's not ready to go, Lashoff will step in. Wow. Remember, we passed on paying minimum wage to Redden...
McCollum is up to back up Howie. Please don't let him have to play. Gus is out for a game or two with a groin issue. By the way, don't you get the idea that if he doesn't pick him play up this season, we're probably going to be finished with him? He's been in the AHL for two years now and this is his third. He's yet to have SAA over 90%.
Lines and the amazing poster, after the break:
Provided E can go, here's the lines.
Pavel Datsyuk-Henrik Zetterberg-Damien Brunner
Johan Franzen-Valtteri Filppula-Mikael Samuelsson
Daniel Cleary-Justin Abdelkader-Drew Miller
Patrick Eaves-Cory Emmerton-Jordin Tootoo
Niklas Kronwall-Jonathan Ericsson
Kyle Quincey-Brendan Smith
Carlo Colaiacovo-Ian White
Now for the poster. Another great one by Mr. Howard himself.
Back to basics is right. Great work Josh.
Live blog it up in this post. Let's do this.
Well, as far as noobs go, everyone knows how awesome Brunner is. I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I'm really liking Tootoo right now. He's little, he's fiesty and he's got heart.
He tweaked his back somehow. It's not a serious injury, he just don't wanna push it.
Kinda reminds me of a playbook, or something a coach would scribble on a dry erase board. The drawings were a nice touch, especially the little hearts.
