Not much to say about this one except, hopefully the refs will be consistant and we pick up six points! And someone at the scheduling committee needs to slapped!

It is actually a home and home and home series... they play the again on the 27th.

With the Christmas break in the middle, that is one way to look at it.

I prefer the home-and-home-and-home label just 'cause it sounds cool. :shocked: And there have been home-and-home series' before with a few day gap in the middle that still went by that name, anyway, so if the gap doesn't matter there then it doesn't need to here.

Well, whatever as long as we come out on top and overtake Nashville I don't care what it's called

Heh, I love it when Mickey gets confused by the refs. Makes me feel better.

Belatedly... Great goal by Cleary, smart pass by Franzen, absolutely stupid move by Fernandez.

Big PK after a series of awful calls. Game's gotten a bit messy.

I hear you about the series of bad calls, what was up with the one on Lilja when the Wild player dropped his stick into the Wings bench? That was stupid. Glad we came out on top even though it SHOULD have been a shutout, let's see how good Ozzie looks tonight!

Puck is bouncing a lot around the Detroit crease, Ozzie needs to keep things settled down and the Wings' D needs to limit Minnesota's chances.

"Give that man a black mask." No kidding, Mickey, Fernandez just came up huge on Homer.

Unrelated to just about anything... Minnesota's third jerseys might just be the best in the league. It's great that they'll be making them their home jerseys next year when third jerseys are eliminated.

You think so? I think they are ugly as hell! The best third jersey is the one from Vancouver, the best Minnesota jersey is the home North Stars jersey that I happen to be wearing right now. In honor of the DFHL of course :shocked:!

While I like the Vancouver one, it's dated in a bad way. Looks like it's from the '70s (because it is). Minnesota's looks "vintage" without being dated.

The All-Star jerseys from Minnesota were great, too. That's what I've got on right now. :shocked:

Agreed on the Nashville third.

Bad break on Minnesota's goal but great to see Homer's slump end. The team goal-scoring streak is still alive and, even if it's been a "sleepy" game so far, should be an exciting end.

Ugh, bad, bad break on the second Minnesota goal. Kronwall needed to do a better job on Parrish, it's not like the refs are calling anything at this point anyway.

Dammit! Datsyuk tries to deke around the same guy fifty f*cking times and gives up the puck. Way to go, Pavs! :shocked:

What a bad break in OT, Ozzie was having a good game too *sigh*. We walked away with a point and we we get them back at the Joe, just like we did the Jackets! :shocked:
