rule detroit, the red wings rule the ice

so i took a little liberty with rule britaania. we just got back from st. louis and another RED WING thumping of the lowly blues. we have been going a couple of times a year for the last 10 years and the Wings have only lost once.

i wasn't so confident down 2 nothing at the end of the first, and 2-1 at the end of the second, i figured we came a long way to see a loss. but when draper tied it in the third i thought we were in pretty good shape, right up until there was about 6 minutes left in the game. st. louis went up 3-2 and with a minute left zetterberg scored from behind the net on a centering pass!!!, to send it into OT.

that is not one of the wings strong points so i was pretty apprehensive especially at the end of the 5 minutes as we went to the shootout. pavel scored for us and andy mcdonald scored for them 1-1 at the end of 3 shooters. the blues shoot first and their 4th guy missed so we trot out, todd bertuzzi?!

i liked todd about 12 or 13 years ago when he was young and still played hard. this is his second stint with the Wings, which i am less than happy about. i give the wife the what the fuck look(he only scored about 10 goals last season), and stand dejected as bertuzzi skates wide left, cuts back to the goal, roofs a backhander and ........scores!!!!!!! the only person more surprised than me in the arena was blues goaltender chris mason.

whatever, it counts, and we saw another great game. to all the blues fans with the dee-troit sucks chants--scoreboard.


  1. Something tells me Bert was probably surprised as well.....I know it pained you to add a Bert picture in a Wings jersey to your post LOL.

  2. he sure ain't yzerman or kocur.
