I can’t submit a full article this week, especially not after last night. All signs pointed to this team being deep, and able to continue this streak regardless whether or not their best player this year was on the ice (Datsyuk). The third line really showed up last night. They came out and set the tone with a goal from Helm and swung the momentum back in the Wings’ favor in the third with another from Abdelkader… And then the Canucks made what I assumed to be a belligerently drunk woman cry at the Joe last night. Cue up some Tom Hanks from A League of Their Own for me. “THERE’S NO CRYING IN HOCKEY!”
I didn’t think I could hate one Sedin more than the other, but that’s all changed, hasn’t it, Daniel?
Though April and the playoffs are looming, he only concern and pressing issue on fans’ minds should be the health of Datsyuk’s recently scoped-out knee. In spite of this loss, the Wings made some history, got some warranted national attention, but the season goes on. Hopefully it continues with a healthy MVP-candidate in the “Dangle Dangle Man” himself.
