  1. A classic original six match up and long standing rivalry. I am looking forward to this one

    Have to ask Clark about whether his team by team record against stats are accurate, but according to his page here, the Wings hold a slight edge at 333 wins 331 losses and 93 ties against the Leafs for all-time.

    They’re right if my scores are all right. FSN said that only two games separate the teams so whether the numbers are right or not, the margin is.

  4. Hm. Lots of offense by the Leafs! :o I hope this game doesn’t go downhill like the last one, but I guess you can’t always win as everyone is saying lately.

    Who scored the goal? :D

  5. Who scored the goal? :o

    Darcy Tucker.

    Is it just me or is the ACC really quiet. Sounds like we can hear the on-ice sounds better than usual.

  6. Is it just me or is the ACC really quiet. Sounds like we can hear the on-ice sounds better than usual.

    I agree.

    They are taking shots on the powerplay for once :o

    I hope Cleary’s ok. It would suck to lose him for a bit.

  7. Yawn.

    Wings are getting better but definitely not the most exciting game.

    I hate afternoon games.

  8. Yawn.

    I hate afternoon games.

    x] Agreed. Unless I am at them :o (stating the obvious)

    It’s hard to keep my attention on the game Dx

    As I type that…..:D WOO! Lidstrom’s, right?

    Taken to a Toronto Hospital for x-rays to the jaw. :o

  10. Yawn.

    I agree. Neither team seems to be playing with a lot of OOMMPPFFFF …

  11. Even if Mickey York’s narration on that Sittler bit was awful.

    This is the stuff the NHL needs to remember. Try so hard to create rivalries at the expense of such amazing ones that already existed.

  12. Ah, this is so lame. Dx This is taking forever. I thought it had been like 10 minutes and I look up to see it’s only been 3 ._.

    This is probably the slowest game I have watched.

    At least the Filppula-Samuelsson-and whoever the third person is are doing some nice plays.

  13. Gah! Everyone knows Draper can’t finish!

    Drapes has been known to miss the broad side of a barn …..

    On that last one though …. how could he miss? lol :o

  14. By the speed / energy level of this game, I gotta wonder if the boys got together last night for a few cocktails in Toronto.

    XD Couldn’t have put it in better words. x]

    Maybe it’s so quiet there because everyone is sleeping.

  16. XD Again, I agree with both of you! :o

    That line has worked hard tonight, from the slowness of this game at least. I think they deserved it.

  17. I feel like I could be asleep right now.

    And then it’s 2-1! Woohoo!

    Goal judges may have a difficult time staying awake ………

  18. XD Again, I agree with both of you! :o

    Agreed. Its impossible for me to believe the WINGS could lose this one, given the games pace, and how ineffective the Maple Leafs seem to be playing.

  19. Gawd, I should NOT have posted my previous comment! Now, I’ll probably live to regret having said …….. :o

  20. By the speed / energy level of this game, I gotta wonder if the boys got together last night for a few cocktails in Toronto.

    I had to quote this again because I was just thinking, if they’re drunk and hungover now, how bad will it be against the Ducks? Let’s hope they don’t get pummeled.

    Darn. It’s tied again. And now the crowd is showing some love.

  21. Goddamnit Dom!

    Gotta wonder if DOM fell asleep before that Toronto possession, rush and GOAL!

    He was awake, just didn’t get those friggin’ pads closed.

  22. Jeepers. Bring out the SMELLING SALTS~~~~~~ pump some life into the WINGS.

    I’m going to be P1SSED if this ends up in a shoot-out and we end up on the short end of the stick.

  23. I’ll be p*ssed if this goes to a shootout ’cause I need to leave for a company party in 20 minutes. No recap tonight.

    Edit: Though I’d prefer a shootout win than any other kind of loss.

  24. I will be either ways because IT’S GONE ON LONG ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!

    XD Smelling salts would do nicely. Maybe a large air horn. Get whapped with a stick? The world will never know.

  25. #80 Toronto Andropov is a GIANT! Anyone see how big that guy is!

    Here we go to OT. Smelling Salts anyone? haha

  26. I sit down just in time to see the Leafs score. :o

    How pleasant.

    I’ll go email them a question to answer on tv and ask them what smell they would prefer.

    edit;; How far into the overtime was it?

    Don’t have an exact time — but it was less than 3 minutes.

  28. Ugh. No comment. See you guys tomorrow.

    Have fun! :o Spread the word about how useful smelling salts are!

    Less than three minutes? I thought it was less than one minute XD I must’ve been downstairs longer than I thought.

    (The slowness of the game messed up my time schedule)
