So you know how I always complain about those afternoon games on beautiful spring days when I should be out mowing the lawn or something? Turns out that applies to afternoon games on cold fall days, too. I have tons of time tonight to watch hockey but this afternoon I'm supposed to be painting. Unfortunately for my guest room hockey has a higher priority.

So I was wrong about the Wings' neutral site record yesterday. Turns out there's at least one game they played in a non-NHL city that I didn't know about. I blame that for some kind of karmic imbalance that made the Wings lose, not a second line that didn't click or the power play or the goaltending.

Speaking of goaltending, Jimmy Howard gets the start today. This should be interesting.

As of this writing MSU is up 20-6 on Michigan so I guess anything's possible at this point.

I'll probably be catching up to the game a little late, the aforementioned painting has me scrambling a bit today.

Awesome about Howard starting, I was hoping he would start yesterday.

Sadly, I will probably only get to see 5-10 minutes of the game. Maybe I'm bad luck anyways? Let's hope they play better than yesterday, though!

I was thinking Howard was gonna start, not due to a poor performance by Osgood, but just a back-to-back game situation. I was utterly disappointed last night watching the Blues fire back 3 unanswered goals to take the lead and keep it. Hopefully, we come out and stomp them like the Blackhawks did the Panthers after their loss yesterday as well.

We just need to play a full 60 minutes today and we will be fine, not get lazy after half like yesterday.

Any word on Ericsson for today?

I don't care what anyone says, I like what Bertuzzi is bringing...he's working for his spot on that line, give it some time and they will start working better together, as you said, not enough practice with them together yet.

We have Darren Pang on FSN? Sweet.

Ericsson gametime decision, as is Cleary. Unless I've missed something.

MSU has turned stupid, looks like OT in that game.

Interesting, I didn't even think about it, but they just noted Conks will be starting for the Blues. Howard, replacing Conks from last year, now makes his first regular season debut this year against him.

Sweden's national anthem is not meant to be sung at hockey games.

Oh man, I feel bad for Conks already, but it has to happen this way.

I feel bad for Conklin having to play for the Blues, but that's all.

Maybe I'm good luck and I should stay home and watch instead? I hope they keep this momentum going! :)

Damn, that was high. Would've been nice to actually get a PPG.

Commercial gave me time to see that while the Wings were getting off to an early lead, MSU managed to not completely screw up OT and get the win over Michigan. I'll be damned.

Blues with the 5-on-3. I don't like that call at all. Bad feeling.

And of course they score.

I knew it was going to happen, some bad calls in the first, but we all know it doesn't matter in the end.
