The tough part about it is that when you aren't on your game five minutes after the game, everything that you think that you thought of yourself has already been posted multiple times in better forms, which makes you sad.
Therefore, all I have to say about yesterday's game was that it was the most fun I've had watching hockey this year. And check these other places for some great recaps (sorry if I missed anyone, these are just ones I had a chance to read today).

One more thing I noticed today reading various blogs out there, is that there are a large amount of Wings bloggers that went to my and Drew's alma mater, Grand Valley State out in Grand Rapids. I'm not positive, but I think Hockeytown Static and Babcock Death Stare went to GV. I have a guess on a few others too. Strange, but cool.
Couple quick comments on my terrible odds post yesterday:
-A member of the Vancouver media skates onto the ice and gets on his knees for Luongo during warm-ups - 2:1
This was true pretty much the entire game, but pretty deserving so. Win.
-Bertuzzi regains his old form, scores three goals, gets a game misconduct and then kills a mother and her two small children - 4:1
He didn't score, or kill anyone, but he played great and is starting to have a bit of a mean streak in him again. Loss.
-The Chief will both talk about puppies and bitches in his next post - 7:6
Neither, damnit. We did get two graceful MBCQOTD's though. Still... Loss.
-The Chief will talk about strangling those puppies if the Wings lose - 2:1
N/A, which makes me and puppies everywhere happy.
-The Chief's next post will be at some ridiculous hour like 4:12 AM. - 4:3
Damnit all to hell, again. 11:37 AM. Very reasonable. Loss.
-Babcock's Death Stare will have the best post-game wrapup (and best header) on the blogosphere - 5:4
Read it, you will smile about the good times, laugh at the fun you had, cry at the thought of Osgood in net and realize you are reading greatness. Win!
-Tram will comment on the Triple Deke's post game post - 2:1
Tram might have killed himself after the Colorado loss, we aren't sure. We also believe that he might have the most comments ever for someone who refuses to take the five seconds to register on blogger.
-Osgood will play better than Luongo, yet everyone in the media will still say the Wings goaltending sucks -5:2
-Ryan Kesler's real name is "Livonia Native Ryan Kesler" (NHL 09 reference) - 8:1
I think it was referred to like 4 times last night. Win.
Great game, but I still wish that Pavel Bure was still on the Canucks.
