Sorry I missed you all after the Boston game, meant to recap that but you have to understand the pressures of Thanksgiving Family Holidays. My parents and grandparents were here and kept forcing drink down me; partying like a woe begotten Red Wings team had just slammed a second place Boston Bruins team by 5 goals. Seriously, imagine 5 little old drunk Sullys running around shouting “wine!” “beer!” “scotch!” “tequila!” It was nuts. I survived. Recap time:
How many times during the many losses this season did the Red Wings play rather well but not get the bounces, have the puck find a way to stay out of the net, and give up a back-breaking goal in the most untimely manner possible? Too often, I’d say. Jimmy’s stats do not reflect how well he has played, our powerplay unit is better than that of a team averaging as few goals per game as we are. We aren’t the terrible offensive enigma that we have showcased in many games, including the last 7 starts of James Tiberius Howard and the last several at home prior to Boston.
