Two love

Yesterday’s Wings game was one of the most satisfying sporting events I can remember. Top three moments, of many:

1. Abdelkader’s snipe job of a goal.
2. Zetterberg fighting Malkin.
3. Ozzie stoning Malkin on the break.

    4. The Red Wings not even being remotely challenged.

    Just remember TC’ers, when Detroit wins their second straight Stanley Cup, I don’t wanna hear the “I Hate Boston Sports” junk from you guys. Shit, we’ve gone a full year without winning a major sports title here!

    (oh wait…BU won the D1 hockey tourny)…

    …carry on.

    looking solid. zetterberg has been unreal defensively on crosby.

    and i liked seeing hime fight back after malkin broke his stick on z’s back. zetterberg was not happy.

    5. fillpulas back handed snipe job with no angle.

    filppula’s goal was completely belittling for a goaltender whose ass has literally already cost him one game. and i just loved seeing the “mature” penguins fall back into their same routine of cheap shots when they realized they were going down 2-0 for the second time. this has been a great time for red wings fans.

  7. indeedindeed Says:

    Yeah, Zetterberg’s two-way play has rivaled some of the wonderful Feddy-Yzerman backchecking of yore, a skill that never translated to my own cherrypicking Dino Cicarelli-like hockey style.

  8. Kyle Says:

    I don’t think Malkin should be suspended, but Talbot should be. He said afterward, “Talbot defending himself later by saying he was poking at the puck.” The puck was on the ice underneath Osgood’s glove, how do you hit him in the chest if you are going for the puck? You can see it rolling through the crease after osgood falls over. This is a just a dirty dirty play called spearing…

    Osgood always a class act shrugs off being speared, “It’s not that big of a deal,” Osgood said. “At the end, he was trying his hardest and everybody got in there and wrestled around. Nobody got hurt.”

    Just because it really wasn’t vicious doesn’t mean it wasn’t spearing.

    Also could NBC announcers be anymore biased for the Penguins? I thought I was listening to a Penguins broadcast last night. Darren Pang was the only objective one of the bunch, he probably won’t be doing anymore games if he keeps that up.

    good points kyle. the nbc broadcasters have really been pushing for the guins.

    they were all about calling hossa for slashing before we sore the second goal. replay showed that dudes stick was broke under his own usage.

    nbc is bad.

  10. indeedindeed Says:

    Eddie Olczyk and Pierre McGuire were both Pens, definitely annoyingly pro-Pittsburg. At one point somebody referred to them a few times during an intermission as “we,” I think in reference to when he was coaching the Pens, but still.

  11. indeedindeed Says:

    We need somebody fair and straightforward, like Mickey Redmond.

  12. zachary Says:

    now theres a hockey announcer i can listen to!

    give me some barry melrose. stupid espn.
