Red Wings @ Stars - 1/12
Posted January 12, 2009 - 05:25 PM
The Wings start their six-game road trip (with the All-Star break coming before the sixth) with Chris Osgood in net. Mike Babcock continues his goalie rotation but says that'll end soon (if not after tonight's game). I'll believe it when I see it.
Niklas Kronwall is back in the lineup after the mystery scratch on Saturday. This puts Derek Meech and Chris Chelios in the press box.

Haha! What an interesting way to describe that! <3
Christ! Datsyuk just knocked up that chick in the front row, that's how badass that move was.
That was an amazing goal. Amazing. Cool to see the Wings in front!

I dunno, I've got nothing. I keep coming back to this, trying to write about it, and all I can think of is the crazy vocabulary of the Versus announcers. I have no idea who they were (I don't listen to national announcers all that much, I like Ken and Mickey too much) but I have the feeling I never want to hear them again.
There is a part of me that wants to work "mastodonic" into my every day vocabulary but then I realize anyone using it just comes across as a supreme douchebag. Yes, it's an accurate description of the Chris Osgood save to which it was applied but its use smacks of superfluousness (there's an SAT word for you).
Then we've got Pavel Datsyuk as the "Valedictorian of Awesome School." "Awesome School?" Seriously? Chris Creamer calls it ESPN2 circa 1996 and I've gotta agree.
Malik might have a complaint but I'm going to Latin that one up. Awesomus Prime. First in awesomeness.
Study up, there'll be a test on this. Mastodonic. Superfluousness. Vox populi. Awesomus Prime.
As for the game... Osgood faced fifty damned shots. I think that explans things pretty well. When you can allow five goals and still come out of it with a .900 save percentage you did your job. I'm just leaving it at that.
