Alright, so I missed this from chompboard.com...a live blog for last night's game. Only 100 or comments, not quite in the A2Y echelon, but there were a few good ones.
SharkieFan:Always a tough test to play at Hell aka Joe Louis Arena.
Not sure if that's a slight against the city of Detroit or the fact that San Jose always seems to lose in that building.
Wordlifetn97: detroit is skating hard. maybe its because i havent seen a sharks game since sunday but the wings look like theyre flying out there
He must have been watching the Eaves-Helm-Draper line. VooX over at A2Y has nicknamed them "The Red Corvettes", great speed and excellent in corners...I like it.
flyover fan: Looks like dtw is trying to prove a point since they're off to such a shaky start.
Do people really refer to Detroit by their airport code?
Sjsharx22: Did anyone else here notice on the replay of the Wings' goal that the ref's whistle was in his mouth before the puck went in? The rules state that once a ref decides to blow his whistle, it isn't a goal. Stupid eastern team and Red Wing favoritism! HEY REFS! YOU SUCK!
This one was my favorite. This poor misguided soul must have been watching the 2nd round last year even if the Sharks didn't make it there. Brad Watson = stopped the play in his mind. Last night's ref = let the play continue (as he should and as Brad Watson should have). Stupid eastern teams indeed. How dare they try and move in on what is clearly a Southern California spawned sport.
Outfox: Let's be happy with the point. It's probably good that we lose to these f*%#@n guys. We do not want to think that we can go to the Joe and get an easy win. The more our boys struggle with the Wings, the hungrier they will be. And hunger is what they lacked in the playoffs.
They lacked heart in the play-offs. Don't expect Dany "70 Goals" Heatley to help you out with that. Maybe we'll see you in the Conference Finals...if you make it that far.
Oh and I stole this pic from one of the chompboard member's avatars...
Can somebody please explain to me what in the name of all that is good an holy is Joe doing? Feeding a burrito to a puppet? Impromptu caption contest: GO.
The Nightmare on Helm Street is a fledgeling blog overwhelmingly dedicated to the Detroit Red Wings and the destruction of their enemies. Drew started a non-partisan blog in 2008 which failed miserably and he eventually created N.O.H.S. on the scorched Earth thereafter in July 2009. Chris was added as an author three months later. Both are washed up college hockey players, except Chris is a stupid goalie.
