Although, I must say for the amount of injuries that the Penguins were dealt the [...]

Detroit Red Wings: Don’t Stop Believing

“Just a city boy, born and raised in SOUTH DETROIT, he took the midnight train going annnnyyywheeerrreeee”

San Jose Sharks Get A Hockey Lesson

It took me a few days, and a show-me follow-up victory, to put me in a frame of mind to write about the San Jose Sharks. Two nights ago the Chicago Blackhawks absolutely dismantled my team. Words cannot express the magnitude of the Sharks’ futility and equally the Blackhawks’ mastery. I have [...]

Red Wings Physio Earns His Money

Any hope we may have had that the Wings were about to start their charge to the higher reaches of the table, have now been swept away. Our form is back to it’s on/off frustration, and we’ve now lost Kronwall for up to 8 weeks with a knee injury, thanks to a George Laraque ‘trip’. [...]
