Okay, I don’t have a recap of the game today. I didn’t take notes, and we were driving back from Holland during the third period. Basically, I remember it being very tightly-contested and that Henrik Zetterberg’s goal was sweet. For a recap, check out Dave’s at Gorilla Crouch. If you’re looking for entertainment, read the comments over at Abel to Yzerman’s liveblog post.
I do have some observations about things off the ice, though:
First: what is it with FSN’s amazement about this new fangled thing, the Internet? They’re enough out of touch with technology that they’re shocked to get so many emails from viewers during the game. John Keating joked that the Internet is “all the rage these days.” Um, yeah. That’s right. It is. As refreshing as it is to see FSN and the Wings discovering this “new” medium, it’d be nice if they’d drop the golly-gee-guffaw thing.
Second: Anyone else get a kick out of Niklas Kronwall’s Oxford don look? Seriously, he had a sweatervest on. Stylish.
Third: speaking of style, did anyone need to know that Mikael Samuelsson wears tight clothes? Draper dropped that one on us while discussing Henrik Zetterberg’s new clothing line. Drapes didn’t take the bait when Keating asked him about which Red Wing would do best on the runway. Too bad.
I wish I’d seen Filppula’s game winner live. Oh well. Hopefully he’s getting going now and we’ll see more of that. Nice timing on it, too.
