Going to need a miracle
Wanted to live blog the Stars game, but its really just going to be the 3rd period. Spent a little too much time at the bar. Hey, when Dogfish Head 60 minute draught is the special, what do you expect?
Stars down 4-1 going into the 3rd. Havent really seen the entire game, just a little here and there. But I'm focused now. Ballsy prediction: Stars 6 RW 4
9:33 - Huge power play 2 minutes in coming up for the Stars if they want to make this a game. I dont really think they can win, but they at least need to show they will not give up.
9:36 - Is there a goalie that loves the highly ambitious 84 foot pass more than Turco?
9:37 - PP down and we didnt show anything.
9:40 - Granted I have seen exactly 8 minutes of the red Wings this year, but I am suprirsed how physical they are. the Stars seem to be shying away from contact, while the RW seems to be seeking it out. This might come back to haunt the Stars as the series goes on.
9:43 - If you could be the 9th best player in the NHL, or the 9th best player on the NFC Wild Card team any given year, which one would you choose?
9:46 - Under 10 minutes to play and I dont think my prediction is going to come through. So, what do the Stars need to do these last few minutes? They need to not give up another goal, capitalize on at lease one of these scoring chancesl, get more physical with the RW, and not get anyone hurt. Time to start building some momentium heading into Game 2.
9:50 - Anyone else think its weird that the hockey uniform includes shorts instead of pants?
10:01 - Why is Chelios so tan?
10:03 - Game over. 4-1 Det. Stars really need to win game 2, or it might be Red Wings in 5.
