Hockey’s Back!

Hockey’s back and me and Pavel up there couldn’t be more excited.  Tonight, a team wearing the Wings sweaters, pretending to be the Wings, will be facing the Pittsburgh Penguins at 7 PM.  Horray!  Something to actually post about!

The game is on NHL Network.  Here’s your line-ups, which surprisingly include a few big names:

Jiri Hudler-Pavel Datsyuk-Danny Cleary
Fabian Brunnstrom-Cory Emmerton-Patrick Eaves
Drew Miller-Ryan Johnson-Jan Mursak
Tomas Tatar-Chris Conner-Tomas Holmstrom

Niklas Kronwall-Brad Stuart
Brendan Smith-Mike Commodore
Garnet Exelby-Logan Pyett

Jimmy Howard
Joey MacDonald

So tonight we will get to see how a ripped Hulder looks, if Brunnstrom can keep up, if Johnson is anything special and if Conner is as ruthless as people say he is.  Plus it’s our first taste of Commie22 in a Wings uni. 

So no matter if this doesn’t mean a thing, I’m excited, if only for the fact that one of the longest off-seasons ever is over. 

Lets Go Red Wings!  (Boy that felt good.)
