Oh It's THEM Again...


Captain Grumpy had another rough night. No wonder he's grumpy.

Well, the Red Wings killed us once again. The score was much closer than it should have been, Backstrom made 47 saves. He was pretty good last night, but the rest of the team disappeared. I'm not even sure how the Wild managed to get one goal in the 4-1 loss. I was texting with Steph, and she was kind enough not to gloat, even though the Wild deserved it they played so poorly. The Wild just let them make passes uninterrupted, and hesitated before shooting. The Awesome Dude who sits next to me, his buddy, and I were making bets as to how many shots the Red Wings would get. The final shot total was 51-19. I doubt I need to tell you who that was in favor of. I'm really, really glad we only play them four times a year. They are by far the best team in the NHL right now.

Next up: the hated Stars on the 26th in Dallas at 7:30PM CST.

A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

I'm shocked (but not surprised) that they got 51 shots on. That's kind of ridiculous...and that was without Zetterburg, right? Those crazy kids...

I'm still rooting for Ottawa come playoff time! I mean, I could easily go for Detroit, but I liked Ottawa last year. We shall see.

Multiple YouTubes, eh?

Just use the "embed" script on the YouTube page. You can embed as many as you like. :o)

Ckim-I'm scared to think about what would have happened with Zetterberg and Holmstrom.

Teebz-Thank you! I quite enjoy YouTube, and like to spread the joy that is random searching to others.

CKim said...

P.S. Can you explain this whole "Zetterdouche" phenomenon that you speak of?

Steph said...

Connie, Kirsten wasn't so happy after the last 5-0 Wings win and thus decided to begin referring to him as Zetterdouche. Isn't that mean? :P (Datsyuk became Triangle Head...but I feel like all you have to do is google image search to figure that one out.)

PS I liked this game a lot :D There's my gloating.

CKim said...

Ah hah, haha. I was about to say cuz I'm sure he's very nice in person! =P The Triangle Head was pretty self-explanatory. haha

Margee over at Sportsquee originally came up with the name "zetterdouche" in one of her posts about the Red Wings, I will look up the exact one if you like. I'm just keeping it going since I have a lot of reasons to be bitter towards the Red Wings at the moment. The Triangle Head one I came up with all on my own, and it makes me giggle.

Steph-Thanks for explaining, and for only gloating a little bit. I'm pretty sure you're entitled to more gloating, that game was really horrible.

ah, it all comes together. You learn something new everyday.
