*Franzen was a gametime scratch (ankle), so Modano got into the lineup to replace him.  He did pretty good, registering 1 assist, 2 shots on goal, and just over 11 minutes of ice-time.

*No Zetterberg (again)?  No problem!!  The boys had it covered.

*Datsyuk may have only had 1 point and 1 recorded shot on the night, but the man is freaking amazing to watch, no matter what.

*I can't decide which goal is my favorite: Homer's diving shot, Eaves-from-Helm with Bonus!Helm knocking down Yambag and Roseyballs to steal the puck, or Danny "Buckets" Cleary's shot from below the goal line.  I'm kinda leaning towards Eaves-from-Helm 'cuz...well...it's EAVES AND HELM!!!!

*I've decided that Helm is actually the love-child of Draper & Datsyuk.  Boy sure has come a long way, even from the beginning of this season.  *pets him*

*Buckets lead the team with 3 points (1G, 2A) and SOG (5) for the night.

*Bryzgalov actually looked pretty good for a lot of this game.  But the boys took care of that.

*A big fat Babcockian Death Stare to HandJob for throwing his stick at Eaves-baby as he went for the empty net goal at 19:24 of the 3rd.

*Really nice standing ovation for the Jetotes from the hometown fans.

*Ownership of the Arizona franchise is in turmoil right now.  The rumor is that the team will be moved, possibly back to Winnipeg.

*Interesting trivia: The Winnipeg Jets last game was April 28, 1996.  It was Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  The Jets were eliminated and relocated to Arizona the following season as the Coyotes.  The team who eliminated them?  The Detroit Red Wings.

* The Wings will now rest up for at least a week before Round 2.

You owe me a computer screen, I just spit water all over mine! My gosh you make me laugh! I have no idea what goes on with hockey, but I do so love your enthusiasm for the game and players! :-)

Glad you liked that!

So juvenile, I know. But after watching some of these teams/players over the years, the nicknames are totally deserved. *grin*

I am *so* thankful I bought a ticket to that game, even if I had to go alone. Best decision I've ever made, it was just a great game.

Also, I could go on and on about why I think the Coyotes should stay, but why there's no way for them to be financially viable. It has nothing to do with the desert.. but a lot to do with bad foresight.

Go Wings!
