Game #14 -- Red Wings vs. Sharks


DETROIT RED WINGS 2 - 1 SAN JOSE SHARKS (SO)


Apologies, but I have to hit the books early tonight, so I'll skip to the Top 3 Wings:


(Honorable mention to the Eaves/Helm/Draper unit.)

#3 ~ Nick Lidstrom. 27:31 of ice time. He has said publicly that the guys have to tighten things up, and only two goals have been given up over the last three games. I never felt overly threatened by the Sharks' attack in this game. Nick's the anchor. He is perfect.

#2 ~ Chris Osgood. Really toiled between #1 and #2 here ... Ozzie made more saves in this one than on Tuesday and was challenged a bit harder, having to come up big in the shootout.

#1 ~ Henrik Zetterberg. You knew it from his first shift. Game-tying goal and Game-winning goal in the shootout with a disgusting move on Nabokov. He was on like Ansar Khan tonight. (You have to say "on" with sort of a thick Michiganian accent for it to totally rhyme with "Khan" ....... you know what, fuck it.)

I'm not sure if I'm proud or embarrassed that I didn't need the note to have "on" and "Khan" rhyme...

Just saw that a MSU student was killed outside of Cobo Joe's after the game last night. Apparently, he was run over by a white caddy. Had to make sure that it wasn't you...but I see that you posted this after 11 and the kid was killed at 10. Glad it wasn't you, but bad news galore yesterday.

Oh geez, with what Drew posted, I feel bad saying my stuff...

I watched the game late on DVR and when it was headed to shootout, I was ready to just turn it off but I'm so glad we didn't. I was so excited after that win that I couldn't go to sleep for awhile. How lame does that make me celebrating a shootout regular season win? I guess with all the bad news, it is good to have some things to celebrate.

Yup, still here. That's so bizarre. We went to Cobo Joe's after the game ... what are the odds of that?

Animal Drew said...

I was too far gone already to make it to Cobo Joes. Only one Moslon Triple X...but the Jack & Cokes in the alumni room did me in. Just happy to remember what happened at the end...

Animal Drew said...

...taking the risk of being comepletely distasteful in the wake of a tragedy, but did anybody notice if Dany Heatley was seen driving around Detroit last night?


...too soon?

OH NO YOU DI'INT

You should totally be proud.

Why that's.......that's just pure Michigan.

(Please tell me people get that joke).

If someone doesn't get that joke they should be blacklisted. My idea of heaven is the Pavel Dr. Rahmani commercial narrated by Tim Allen. Who do I call to make this happen??

Fox said...

My idea of Heaven is a solid White nightclub with me as a headliner for all eternity, and they *love* me.

LolaLemon51 said...

Who would "they" be? And can my heaven commercial play on a big screen in the background or something at least?

Triple Deke Staff said...

Holy shit, I had no idea that was Tim Allen on those commercials til I just looked it up. I must have a horrible ear, between not catching that and not realizing that it wasn't Don Cherry on that Oilers video the other day.

(For those with no fucking clue right now, I'm referring to one of these:)

Oh my God it is Tim Allen...

Triple Deke Staff said...

I know right? I'm just thankful there wasn't any of the annoying-as-shit grunting.

T/L said...

And just when I thought there was no way to make those commercials any worse. We got lucky he never threw any of those in. haha

Triple Deke Staff said...

Not only do you have the commercials, but as we noticed on the trip back from Nashville a few weeks ago, when you come back over the MI border you are greeted by a sign that says, "you are entering Pure Michigan". They must be pretty stoked about this campaign.

T/L said...

And where exactly is UNpure Michigan?

Triple Deke Staff said...

Ann Arbor. Very unMichigany.

T/L said...

Tim would disagree.

Oh whatthefuckever. "A break from the ordinary" is Michigan? What's more ordinary than Michigan? I'm waiting, Tim Allen -- reader of this blog.

To balance things out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dcjnseVCVY

I can't believe how many of those commercials they are. I've only heard the Henry Ford Museum one and another one like 40 times. Are they just sitting on dozens of these for a rainy day?

T/L said...

Same here. I've only seen maybe two or three different ones on TV, but there are at least 10 commercials on youtube (not counting all the radio adds).

Anonymous said...

I haven't seen these. It's about time they made some more. A few years ago they had them narrated by Robert Redford (remember????) and he mispronounced "Ypsilanti" and "Traverse City". Ugh.

I have chosen to ignore the Ann Arbor comments ; )

Triple Deke Staff said...

Interesting, Tram, I did not know about the other ones. Maybe the mispronunciations caused Granholm to send out her minions and erase our memories.

LolaLemon51 said...

So I do get bonus points in the useless trivia category? :)

Triple Deke Staff said...

Lola I am handing you 100 Deke Points. No need to thank me, it's okay.

Fox said...

No extra trivia points for Lemon if she can't nail The Exorcist.
