How Swede It Is!

I'm not nearly as fond of that little slogan as I was of the Tour de Franzen but I'll deal because...

WINGS WIN SERIES 4-2

I didn't say anything after the Saturday's win because I was busy and at home but I rocked the red eyeliner both then and today and here we are with two more wins and advancing to take on the Ducks.

It's 3:45, the game was followed by a rousing five games of euchre (the sport of any true Michigander), and I'm exhausted, but every time I close my eyes that play by Lidstrom (you know what one I mean) is still playing behind my eyelids. Just. Beautiful. Every time.

The Free Press is already running an article with the headline "JUST DUCKY", I might have to take back anything bad I said about the Swede thing. I leave you with the promise of more tomorrow and the upcoming schedule:
Date Time (ET) #1 Detroit vs. #2 Anaheim
Friday, May 11 7:30 p.m. Anaheim at Detroit
Sunday, May 13 7:30 p.m. Anaheim at Detroit
Tuesday, May 15 9:00 p.m. Detroit at Anaheim
Thursday, May 17 9:00 p.m. Detroit at Anaheim
* Sunday, May 20 3:00 p.m. Anaheim at Detroit
* Tuesday, May 22 9:00 p.m. Detroit at Anaheim
* Thursday, May 24 7:30 p.m. Anaheim at Detroit
And me already with a reason to hate Chris Pronger. Go Wings!

That Lidstrom block was absolutley bee-you-tee-full! Breathtaking! I may have to root for Detroit now! (I am so easily swayed...)

Wasn't it though? I've always loved Lidstrom, but it was still so hard to picture anyone else but Yzerman as captain for a while...and then every time Nick goes and does something like that I just feel like "Yeah...yeah he is the captain."

And yes! Root for us! No one else does hahaha.
