Game Day: DET @ NYI 1/12/10

Deadlines. I hate deadlines. All I have time for is a few quick wishes.

Tonight I wish that:
  • Detroit does not offer one of its patented "we're better than this team so we don't have to work hard and will therefore suffer a humiliating defeat" games. I  hate those games. They kind of piss me off
  • Darren Helm makes it 6 goals in 6 games
  • Nick Lidstrom decides not to wait for Ericsson to return on Thursday (so he hopes) before he scores his first goal in 17 years
  • Jimmy Howard proves to have the stamina of a porn star and turns in another stellar performance
  • Ville Leino either plays so spectacularly that I am forced to hang my head in shame for ever having doubted him, or does actually falls on his ass somewhere in the middle of the ice with no other players around him so that I can laugh and point for several minutes while insulting him in my grandmother's Lithuanian
  • Final score: DET 4 - NYI 1


  1. Sugar Tits, you gotta stop crackin' on Nick. He might not be scoring, but don't discount what his presence on the ice does for this team.

    You may continue to crack on Leino.

  2. I worship and adore Nick, as does any true Wings fan. He is The Perfect Human. But I miss his scoring. And I know I'm not the only one.

  3. You make me laugh, and cry, in one post... mostly because the way this game is going right now, I can't help but feel that they're jinxed.
