Loved the game tonight, won by the Wings 5-3. Mickey Redmond was in rare form complaigning about every penalty as usual called against both teams, and man crushing on Franzen.

With ten minutes to go, Backes was given a five minute major and a game misconduct for targeting the head of Kent Huskins, an absolutley horrible call, It was an perfect open ice body check, the head was not even touched, it was shoulder to body and just a wretched call. The score was tied 3-3 at the time, Datsyuk scored to put us up 4-3 and Hank added as cool of an empty netter as you will see all year to wrap it up.

A couple of points.

Backes got hosed. I love hitting, the game was in the balance, Backes just destroyed Huskins and a Ref behind the play blew the call. Dont get me wrong, I will take the two points but wow what a bad call.

Since we lost to the Blues on opening night, we are 4-1-1 and look crisp. White is due back onon Tuesday, but even without him in the lineup the blue line had four points tonight.

A team takes on the personality of its captain, I love Nick, he was an amazingly skilled player but the intensity Zetterberg is playing with has rubbed off on the whole team. Hank looks like a man on a mission the the Z who embarrassed Cindy during the 2008 cup finals.

With our next two games against two of the leagues weak sisters, the CBJ tommorow and Calgary and Happy Hudler on Tuesday it is time to make hay while the sun is shining.

Don't Underestimate them Jackets because they will be pumped to be facing us, despite there form in other games they will do everything it takes to show us what for! Take heed!

Local Rivalry at Large!

Nice to see some objectivity from a home town fan of the R&W.
