Wouldn't that be perfect if we were playing the BJs tonight? Unfortunately, I don't have any Flames in costume, and the only Red Wings-related Halloween picture I can find is wildly inappropriate:
Since, as we just found out, Valtteri Filppula's pimpin' hand ain't strong.
And that's where we stand, before a team that's not afraid of blood, already injury-ravaged, desperately, desperately in need of a win.
I mean it's starting to get ridiculous. I know Babcock's been saying that regardless of the record, this team's been playing better than the blowing-through-the-league teams of th elast couple years, but is that any consolations? Isn't it the most cliched-yet-true saying in all of hockey - good teams find ways to win? I know it's only the end of October, but right now the Wings have not-won more games than they have won, and I'm kind of expecting to see people start to leap from the bandwagon as though it had been set aflame.
Speaking of which, I know what the Red Wings can go as for Halloween.
Let's put down some Flames.
