Early Tee Time?

It is far too late in the season for the Wings to piss off a three goal lead and then lose the damn game in a shoot out. There are too many things they are doing wrong and not enough time left to fix them. My pessimism is clutching at my throat and won't let go. Such despair.

The good news, though, is Baby Boy is on fire. He got another goal tonight and was a +1, making him +15 on the year. He now has the same number of points that he had last year--albeit, less goals, but still. He's in the middle of the pack in hits and blocked shots and continues at slightly above 50% in face-off wins--he's doing quite well. While this probably won't be his break out year, he will finish well. Hopefully that will be the end of the trade talk among the fans.

Back to back games this weekend should show just how bad or good the team is doing and whether they can pour it on for the playoffs. And they get to play Columbus on Sunday. yippee
