Osgood's 400th -- Red Wings @ Avalanche


DETROIT RED WINGS 4 - 3 COLORADO AVALANCHE (OT)


I've let too many notable games go post-less around here of late and that just can't happen after this one.

Congratulations to longtime reader Chris Osgood on his 400th victory, a well-deserved W made all the sweeter by taking place on rival ice. It wasn't pretty but I will never, ever call a win a bad performance when it's Game 2 of a back-to-back on the road. You take two points under those circumstances and you are absolved from the word "bad", I think. The absences of Datsyuk and Cleary and Rafalski certainly account for the number of shots allowed to a large degree.

Reader Jay sends in this beauty in commemoration of the OT winner:





As usual I'll now make some hollow promise to update more often in the near future. This time we'll aim for after the New Year.

Go Wings.

just wondering, but how do I get on your blog list? I update (almost) as much as you do...

You leave a comment wondering about it. And what a coincidence, you did just that. It is done.

Interesting concept, I'll have to try that more often...
