Talk Amongst Yourselves — Detroit beats Chicago 3-2 in overtime

Jan 14, 2012, 3:09 PM EDT

The comments section is open. Go say what you think. No big whoop.

We’ll give you some topics:

—- Leave it to Todd Bertuzzi to be the star of the game. Two goals including a breakaway goal and the overtime winner.

—- Who would’ve thought Chicago would benefit from the wacky bounces in Detroit? Andrew Shaw and Marian Hossa sure loved it.

—- Jimmy Howard played out of his mind stopping 25 shots and looking like Dominik Hasek at times in the win.

—- Corey Crawford managed to be pretty awesome himself as the hard luck loser stopping 40 shots in the loss.

—- Pavel Datsyuk and Ian White finished with two assists each.

Now go, talk amongst yourselves.

    Is that supposed to be funny or is it some kind of inside joke?

    How Todd “ironlegs” Bertuzzi Ever got a breakaway is astonishing to me

      He’s still got hands though.

    Jim… see SNL.

    Talk amongst yourselves isn’t an inside joke… It’s from SNL’s old skit “Coffee Talk” with Mike Myers. I guess if you’re younger than 28 or so you won’t know it.

    If you’re gonna rip off the Kurtenblog, at least let Brough or Halford do it

      I would assume B or H had a hand in this.

    The Sisters & company had better be ready this spring, as both of these excellent teams are going to be hungry for Canuckle blood ! … not to mention the Blues, Sharks, Preds and “my” Kings, who I predict are just about ready to go “nuts” ! :) Yes sir, if you arsonists and car flippers in Vancouver think it’s a given that you’ll be back again to the finals this year, then a word of caution to you … you better be wearing “padded” brassieres this time !

      (Anyone in Vancouver think it’ll be easy to get to the finals again? No? Alrighty then.)

    Excellent game as anticipated and hoped for.

    It’s gonna be great being in the same conference. Old rivalry made NEW!

    Let’s Go RED WINGS!

    I understand what it’s from…not sure what it has to do with the hawks game

  9. blomfeld - Jan 14, 2012 at 10:21 PM

    “No thank you … I’m not like that” …

    friends … those were my exact words today at the official Canucks Team Store here in Vancouver, when I was approached by a salesperson trying to sell me the latest Canucks brassiere … this salesperson was quite determined however, as she then attempted to get me interested in buying some fire accelerant … but it was to no avail as I remained steadfast by again declining her offer, while still being polite in the process …

    anyway, the Jewess pictured above has got it exactly correct ! … no way in hell are the Canucks going to “cake walk” again to the finals this year … in fact, I predict they don’t even make the second round, padded brassieres this time or not !
