Puck Luck

That's an old hockey term and the Wings have been decidedly short o' said luck for the past ten games or so, snake-bit, even.  Until last night...

That's the El-Eh call on the goal, you can see the way the Dee-troit broadcast team saw the goal here (I'd post Mickey Redmond's call but the NHL's embed code is hosed).

Key words: "non-reviewable."  The puck was clearly out o' play when it hit the netting but somehow BOTH refs missed it.  I'd be pretty pissed if I was an El-Eh fan but I'll take it as a Wings fan.  The Wings went on to win the shoot-out, 3-2.


  1. That wasn't the Detroit Red Wings, it was the Detroit Griffins. They really deserve a change in luck but it looks like it's going to be another couple of weeks before they have anything resembling a healthy lineup. On the other hand, the experience these young guys are getting should serve the team well in the future. The young'uns are really playing well IMHO, they just need to learn how to score.
    Here via Lem's Levity by the way. Noted that you're a Red Wings fan, so I'll be checking in.

    1. Thanks, Third Coast. I LOVE your beer, BTW. ;-)

      Your point's well-taken. The kids from GR have done pretty well by themselves and would've done a lot better by the Wings if all those freakin' goal posts hadn't got in the way over the course of the last few games. I think our future looks pretty bright.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
