Zetterdouche and win #2

So Friday night the Wild got murdered by the Red Wings. Zetterdouche (thanks, Margee!) got a hat trick, and the Wild lost 5-0. 5-0! HARDING, WTF? You are in the big show now for real. Get it together. Too bad we don't have Roloson. Back in the day, he OWNED the Red Wings. Manny Fernandez played much like Harding, only instead of the Homeless Swede paying him to let goals in, it was Brendan Shanahan. Just because you were brought in to replace Fernandez doesn't mean you have to BECOME him. I now dislike ALL Red Wings. Ever.

The announcers kept going on about how the Wild had only won once ever at the Blue Jacket's arena, and I kept pounding my head on solid objects thinking they were cursing the karma. Turns out I was wrong for once, and dumb and dumber actually didn't kill the karma. A 2-1 win keeps the Wild over .500 in their last six games.

I'm glad Mark Parrish is back, but I and the Wild of course miss Mikko Koivu.

I hope you played Zetterdouche's least favorite ABBA song to curse him.

First time I have heard anyone mention Fernandez this season. He seemed to have disappeared off the radar in Boston due to injury...then with Thomas, Rask and the trade for Auld from Phoenix, it makes me wonder if he has anything left in the tank.

Harding will go through some growing pains. There is a big difference between college, the A and of course, the bigs. A few years from now, he will be a bona fide #1, but for now Backstrom is going to have to buck up and carry that club.

Margee-I did indeed. A very high volume. My roommate now thinks I'm on crack, but she does not understand the ways of hockey just yet. She's a basketball fan.

Silencer-He really has fallen of the face of the Earth. Last I heard he was injured, but that was quite a while ago. I also wonder if he has anything left. I think we made a good move in trading him.
I understand that Harding will go through some tough stretches, I just felt like venting. He's still a baby goalie. Backstrom needs to step it up and get over his sophomore slump, but I know he can.
Rolston is the one I'd usually really like to kill.

kirsten, I posted this over on SportSquee but wanted to make sure you saw it. I thought you might like it since you seem fond of Clarke MacArthur:

Total cutie pie!

I'm totally fond of Clarke MacArthur. Thanks, Heather B.! I owe you one.

Awwwww, I like Zetterberg....but I do hate all Red Wings fans (except Steph).

boy oh boy are we a soft team. The Sharks came out hitting and we just curled up into the in-game version of the fetal position.

So I heard. I'm really glad I went to the HeadBand concert last night instead of attempting to watch.
