With the back-half of the typically-insane four-hour premiere of 24 kicking off at the same time as the start of the Red Wings' road game in Dallas, I have this feeling that I should put new batteries in my TV remote tonight.

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.

"The following is a presentation of the National Hockey League." or "The following takes place between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM." Either way, it's a night with Kiefer. I won't hesitate to switch to 24 if the Wings suck.

Raffy puts a shot off of Loui Eriksson. Turco way out of position looking for the tip from Franzen. Way to go Marty.

Haha! What an interesting way to describe that! <3

That was an amazing goal. Amazing. Cool to see the Wings in front!

Versus just confirmed what I thought, Hossa stopped the puck himself knowing he had kicked it and needed to put it in off his stick. Turco just got there, great stop.

Holy hell. Datsyuk with a defender all over him, another sprawled out in front of him, and Turco in net. And he scores.

"The Valedictorian at Awesome School?" That's a f*cking great line.

How to describe the Red Wings' overtime loss to the Dallas Stars last night?

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.
